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!
