Best Pick-Up Lines To Use On Guys


01“Tell me something, are you as attractive on the inside are you are on the outside?”
You find him physically appealing and are wondering if his personality is as attractive.
Using a pick-up line like this shows that you are interested in getting to know the guy, and not just focused on surface-level attraction.

02“I’m sure I’ve seen you somewhere before. Are you that model?”
The best pick-up lines start with a compliment. This line implies that he is handsome enough to be confused for a model!
Use this on guys who always make it a point to look their best. They will appreciate this type of approach.



03“I see you around all the time and have always wanted to ask you this: How do you manage to look so great all the time?”
There’s nothing wrong with stroking a guy’s ego a bit! Some of them live for it!
Everyone likes to hear that they are looking great.


04“What would you say to dinner at my place? I’m a rather good cook.”
There’s an old saying that goes ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach,’ so why not take advantage of that?
This pick-up line is perfect for a guy you meet in your apartment building or complex. They already know you live in their vicinity so it’s not going to be too weird or awkward.

05“Any girl would be lucky to have a guy like you.”
Use this pick-up line after you see him do something impressive, such as a cool talent or being a gentleman.
It will work because men like to be noticed for the things that they do. He will likely welcome this positive attention.


06“Hey, it’s Dolce & Gabbana, right?”
If there’s a hot guy at your work or school who wears cologne that ignites your soul, then this is a great pick-up line to use.
This lets him know that you’re keeping a close eye (and nose) on him.

07“So, what do you do for fun? Aside from making women swoon over you daily.”
This line clearly implies that he is swoon-worthy or attractive. It also lets him know that you find him attractive.
It is a fantastic way to ask a guy about his hobbies, interest, and his work. A cute way of getting information about him!



08“I’ve seen you before. You’re that guy from 12b with the gorgeous smile!”
This pick-up line is specifically to use on someone who lives in your apartment building, you can modify it in any way you want.
You could switch it to ‘the guy who sits in front of me in chemistry class,’ or even ‘the guy who takes the 8 o’clock bus with me every morning’.
You can also change the physical feature to another body part such as ‘Strong arms,’ or ‘dreamy eyes.’ Whatever you find attractive about him really.
This will work because there is some sense of familiarity and shows that you have had your eyes on him.

09“Your arms look so big and strong. You must spend a lot of time in the gym.”
Guys who work out love hearing about how good their body looks. That’s the whole point of going to the gym anyway!
This will work on guys who look athletic, and even the ones who aren’t! They’ll love the compliment.


10“Do you play soccer? Hmm…you look like a keeper.”
The funny thing is, this line still works whether he plays soccer or not! It’s a terrific way to compliment someone you really like.

11“I would say God bless you but clearly, he already has.”
This line fits in perfectly if a guy you just met has a cold or allergies and has just sneezed. It’ll make him laugh and feel better about being so sick. He’ll probably also feel rather good about that comment.


12“Hi, my name is [insert your name]. Should I just call you Mr. Handsome?”
Using a line like this will require a lot of confidence because it is very direct. Luckily, some guys like this in a woman.
You’ll get his name and perhaps even an interesting conversation.



13“My friend over there said there’s no way a guy like you would give a girl like me his number. Wanna prove her wrong?”
Using your friends is a classic when it comes to pick-up lines to use on guys and even girls. Everyone does it, why shouldn’t you?
This line can work in one of two ways. Either you get his number right away and you talk later, or you start a conversation on the spot and get his number anyway.


14“I’m having a little trouble finding my way around here. Would you mind being my tour guide?”
Acting like a damsel in distress is a way to get a guy’s attention. Most men jump at the opportunity to be a knight in shining armor for a beautiful woman.
It really doesn’t matter if you know your way around or not. You’ll end up spending some time with him just like you wanted.

15“I seem to have lost my number. Could I borrow yours?”
This is a fun and engaging way to show you are humorous and want his number.


16“You don’t look like a broom, but you’ve obviously swept me off my feet. How is that even possible?”
Act like you’re unaware of what’s going on to make the pick-up line funnier.

17“How about I buy you my favorite drink and you buy me yours? And then we can play rock-paper-scissors for who buys the next round!”
This is a cute, friendly way to keep them engaged and get to know each other better. Just make sure they are interested in actually talking, since Rock, Paper, Scissors is not a long game.


18“Do I need some kind of excuse or can I approach you directly?”
He is guaranteed to laugh with this one!


19“Do you have a vacancy in the girlfriend department?”
This is by far the most direct pick-up line, so you should only use it if it’s clear he’s attracted to you.

20“Hypothetically – if I were to approach you, how would you like to be approached?”
This is a cute way to approach a guy, because you’ve let him know you are ‘technically’ approaching him, but also showing you want to know about him.



21“Are you absolutely sure that you’re not tired? You’ve been running through my mind all night tonight.”
A little cringe worthy, but it’s still one of the most effective pick-up lines to use on guys. It’s best used in clubs and less serious surroundings.


22“I think this place doesn’t really coincide with my intentions for you… How about we take a walk?”
This is one of the lesser-known pick-up lines to use on guys, but it’s straight to the point.


How Do Men Think and What Do They Want?

When approaching men, things can get a little bit complicated. This is due to a multitude of reasons, but it’s mostly because guys aren’t used to women approaching them.
Often, it is because they think a girl doesn’t genuinely like them, that she’s actually pulling their leg. To ensure that a misunderstanding doesn’t happen, it’s your duty to be direct.
Men might seem confident when they approach a girl, but they don’t want to risk looking like an idiot when they’re approaching a girl. The best pick-up lines to use on guys have to be direct and leave a lasting impression.
When choosing pick-up lines to use on guys, it’s essential that you both come off as funny and determined.


There are so many pick-up lines to use on guys on the Internet, but you want one that will work, don’t you? This list of pick-up lines to use on guys are guaranteed to work.

All you need to do is play the part right and you can score big time!
