About This Quiz
According to science, there is an entire boatload of pick up lines being used out in the world right now. A metric boatload! Whether people think they might actually work or whether they just think busting out something so obviously cheesy is a good way to break the ice, we may never know. Odds are it's a mix of sincere attempts, desperation, sly humor and maybe even a bit of date-landscape trolling. Whatever the case, these lines seem to never want to go away and, in fact, they proliferate like crazy. A witty turn of phrase is all it takes to get someone's attention sometimes in a bar or on an app like Tinder.
One thing is for sure, and that's that all pick up lines are not created equal. Some make you laugh out loud, some make you shake your head in dismay and others just make you feel confused about what people must be thinking. But did you know pick up lines can also tell us something about you? Just the way you react to some lines will let us know where you're at in the world, romantically speaking. All you have to do is rate some of the choice pick up lines we've picked out, and we'll tell you if you're single or taken. Take the quiz and see!
You're in line waiting to use a cash machine, and the person behind you pipes up with, "Are you a bank loan? Because you'd got my interest." Thoughts?
I mean ... good try, I guess.
Stop before someone gets hurt.
Oh hey, because we're in a bank? Yeah, no
What are you saying when someone at the movie theater says, "Sorry you can't come in with me, this place doesn't allow snacks"?
"You can sneak some snacks in if you're crafty."
"What kind of snack are we talking?"
I wouldn't even reply to that.
"Sorry, but that's getting a C- at best."
Suppose you're waiting in line for the next Stars Wars movie and someone comes at you with, "You like Star Wars, too? Well, Yoda only one for me." Are you impressed in any way?
Maybe I'll C-3P-you later.
You get a message on social media from a total stranger that says, "Are you made of copper and tellurium? Because you are CuTe!" Are you going to write back?
You might be lutetium, carbon, potassium and yttrium with that one – LuCKY.
Bold move with a science line. I might reply to that.
That's adorable. Also, I'm not responding.
Imagine taking a walk through the park when someone comes at you with, "If you were a flower out here in the park, you'd be a damndelion!" Are you continuing the conversation?
That's too cheesy to ignore – I love it.
I admit it, I'd laugh at that.
That's a little too thirsty.
Tell us how you'd feel if someone came at you with this line - "Your hand looks heavy. Can I hold it for you?"
That's a good one. I'm not holding hands, though.
If someone tried "I need to call the cops because you just stole my heart" on you, what are you thinking?
Does that mean I should give it back?
By all means, please call the police.
That line is older than I am.
"I got a glass slipper with your name on it, Tinderella." Are you charmed? What is your response?
"Then you better get it on my foot soon."
"I can buy my own shoes, thanks."
"Well, consider it a souvenir."
Are you at all impressed with this line: "When our friends ask how we met, what are we going to tell them?"
"We met when you dropped a terrible line on me."
"I don't know that we have a lot of friends in common."
I'm not super impressed, but it could be worse.
"Charizard is red, Squirtle is blue, if you were a Pokemon, I'd choose you!" Thoughts?
You're going to have to try harder to catch this Pokemon.
"S'up Ariel? Looks like we mermaid for each other!" Is this your fairy tale?
All right, that's worth a few seconds of my time.
You might Flounder with this line.
Maybe give Ursula a call.
This is too fishy for me.
When someone says, "Did you notice what I'm wearing? The smile that you gave me," are you giving them a few minutes of your time?
I might have a few minutes to spare.
Probably not a ton of time, no
Is "I was always told to follow my dreams, in case you're wondering why I'm behind you" a line worth responding to?
You know what? That's pretty clever.
Cute and creepy – that's an interesting approach.
This is turning into a nightmare.
"Your name must be Amazon, since you have everything I want." Your response?
"And what do you have for me?"
"Hopefully no one steals the package off your porch."
"Maybe try Walmart.com instead."
"It is not Amazon, sorry."
"Want to play an alphabet game? Let's replace my X with U." Will you play this game?
"Why not put U and I together?"
"Not sure that's the game I'm looking for."
"Doesn't that mean you want me to be your ex?"
"Think I might have to put an N and an O together."
Someone comes up to you and shows you their driver's license and says, "I'm an organ donor, so my heart is all yours." What do you say?
"And what do you need in return?"
"Not sure I need a new one right now."
"I already have one, thanks."
"Save it for someone who needs it."
What if someone says, "We went to school together, didn't we? I'm pretty sure we had chemistry"?
Clever. That's worth a few minutes.
I may save that one for later.
Turnon or turnoff: "I was feeling a little off earlier, until you turned me on."
"And then you came along and turned me off. Nice."
I didn't need to know that.
Suppose someone limped up to you and said, "Can you help me find a Band-Aid? I really scraped up my knees when I fell for you just now." Are you giving them the time of day?
That's kind of cute, actually.
I might be charmed by that line. Maybe.
"Gotta invest in some knee pads, kiddo."
I'd help find a Band-Aid for them, sure.
"My therapist said I have a fear of intimacy, but I feel like you could help me prove him wrong." Yay or nay?
I mean ... I feel bad for you now.
"Want to know what my therapist says?"
Seems like a time to back away slowly.
This is not a good approach.
Are you at all tempted by this line: "Do you want to help me win the Stanley Cup in tonsil hockey?"
I like hockey, but, uh, no.
I am the opposite of tempted.
What's your reaction to this one: "I haven't seen buns that nice outside of a bakery."
I feel like this sounded better in theory than in practice.
You're gonna want to never say this.
Pick an appropriate response to: "Was that an earthquake, or did you just rock my world?"
"I am pretty rockin', now that you mention it."
"I didn't feel anything."
"You're probably just a little tipsy."
Is "Do you think you could help me fix my eyes? I can't seem to take them off of you" a decent line or not?
It's not doing much for me.
It's a little bit charming, I guess.
Someone rushes up and says, "You need to stop, drop and roll immediately! You're on fire!" What are you saying back?
"You're not going to help?"
I just have nothing to add to that.
"You're cooling me off already."
You're minding your business and a stranger sidles up to you with their keychain out and says, "Sorry to bother you, but I seem to have lost the key to your heart." Now what?
"Well, keep looking. It must be here somewhere."
"Lemme know if you find it."
"You never had that key."
"Sorry, I took that key back."
"I was wondering why the sky was so grey today, but now I see it's because all the blue is in your eyes." Your reply?
"My eyes are straight up not blue."
"it's probably just going to rain."
Are you falling for it if someone says, "Kiss me if I'm wrong, but Ben Franklin was the first president, right?"
"Well, you have to do a little better than that."
"I see what you did there."
"Guess you must be right."
They say, "I thought it was a little hot in here, but I guess it's just you, huh?" What do you say?
"Yeah, maybe you need to go cool off."
"Nah, it's warm in here."
"Straight up, if you were a booger I'd pick you every time!" Thoughts?
That is the worst line of all time.
