One way of landing a date either in person or on dating apps is by using pick up lines. An easy conversation opener, it’s your chance to make a good first impression and break the ice in a humorous fashion.
From hilarious knock knock jokes to naughty options if you’re feeling extra risqué, we’ve compiled a selection of our favourite pick up lines that will work for all different types of people. And of course, it goes without saying that whilst pick up lines are meant to be harmless, it’s always important to be respectful towards who you’re sending them to and keep things light.
