Despite their reputation, they aren’t all bad. In fact, the right pick up line can break the ice, get a girl to let down her guard a bit and hopefully make her laugh – just in a “he’s so cute” kind of way. In other words, it’s always good to have a few in your arsenal just in case. For that reason, we’re going over basic pick up lines that seem to warrant a positive reaction from women as well as a list of funny ones and those you might want to try when you’re feeling a little dirty as well as why they work.
