Pick-Up-Line Extravaganza!

Updated on November 20, 2013

A Common Pick-Up-Line Scenario

What Are Pick-Up-Lines?

The term pick-up-line has become so popular and well known it has found a place in many modern dictionaries. It is a fun way of making an introduction, especially when attempting to be flirtacious. Often it used to start a conversation with a stranger, but it is also used to try to change a relationship between two people. Such as a person asking an acquaintance on a date. Whether a pick-up-line is used by a stranger, a coworker, or a friend, one thing is certain. Pick-up-lines are used by people everywhere all the time. They range from funny to flattering, to somewhat corny or somewhat perverse. Plus, the term is used so freely and is so well known in modern times, it’d be difficult to even find out its origin.

A Great Definition of a Pick-Up-Line

So what exactly is a pick-up-line? Although the term is technically slang, it has become so well known and used it is found in many modern dictionaries. This is a Wikipedia definition, the best one I've found.

A pick-up line is a conversation opener with the intent of engaging an unfamiliar person for romance, or dating. Overt and sometimes humorous displays of romantic interest, pick-up lines advertise the wit of their speakers to their target listeners.

Let the Pick-Up-Line Extravaganza Begin!

I'd like to start off with a very interesting article I found about pick-up-lines that would be used throughout history.

These are simply just a couple more fun and original different types of pick-up-lines.

Redneck Pick-Up-Lines

"Come Backs"

Now we've seen all types of pick-up-lines, so next I want to introduce "come backs." I would best describe a "come back" as a response to a pick-up-line. Many people after receiving an inaproppriate, perverse, or corny pick-up-line, and want to shut down any more attempts at conversation from the person, they will use a "come back." Below I've found and shared some of the best "come backs."

I'll Conclude With Two More Pick-Up-Lines and Their "Comebacks."
