Whether romantic, flattering, sexy, practical, or just plain cheesy, pick-up lines, aka chat-up lines, can be a big part of the dating scene. Here are some classic and creative French pick-up lines.

 Conseils concis

The French don’t really use pick-up lines – they generally just start chatting and see how it goes. But as a foreigner with a horrible charming accent and a sense of humor, you can probably get away with trying one of these out.

Even though pick-up lines are by definition used with people you don’t know, the sorts of situations in which you’re likely to use them typically call for tu rather than vous.
