A pick-up line is a conversation opener with the intent of engaging an unfamiliar person for humor, romance, or dating. Overt and sometimes humorous displays of romantic interest, pick-up lines advertise the wit of their speakers to their target listeners.
Pick-up lines range from straight forward conversation openers; at its simplest as "hi", going through the full range to the most elaborate attempts including humor such as "If you were Spock's phaser, you would be set to stun" or "If I could rearrange the alphabet, I would put 'U' and 'I' together". Also, they can be to flirt, such as "Do you have a map, because I keep getting lost in your eyes." There is a question whether pick-up lines work efficiently.
Different categories of pickup lines are commonly defined and popularly discussed, e.g.
Cocky & funny lines: This definition of pick up line is a form of merging an arrogant 'cocky' attitude and being funny into a single pick up line. He proposed this as the most effective way of engaging someone's attention in a social situation. Opinion openers: These are a type of pick-up line which is most subtle in contrast to traditional pick-up lines, but they serve the same purpose. They involve asking an opinion of the other person provoking a response aimed at an ongoing conversation. Humour lines: Sometimes, a pickup line doesn't have to work the way it's meant to. The person being approached may like it because of the humour behind it. An example is using their last name, which may be a colour e.g., green. Topical lines: These pick-up lines can fit into a subcategory of humour lines. In topical pick-up lines the individual using it will pick a detail of a certain topic that may be of interest to the target and spin it in a way that expresses their interest to said target.
