Pickup lines. Everyone has used one at some point, and most are constantly on the lookout for the ‘newest and best’ examples of them. Ladies and gentlemen alike can use them, and while they might seem silly and ridiculous in a lot of situations, they are actually sometimes more effective than you might imagine.
In this post, we are going to talk about 20 of our favorite chemistry pickup lines, and also offer some tips for how to use them.
Pickup-Line Tip of the Day
Remember that pickup lines are situational. You need to get a good sense of the vibe before you drop one, to make sure that you’re not getting ready to say something totally embarrassing. It is also important to get a sense of the chemistry between you and the other person before dropping one of these lines. Is the energy pretty light-hearted? Is it already hot and heavy? Is it flirtatious, but casual and friendly?
It is important to be aware of these things so that you can choose not only the best line for that conversation, but also so that you can drop the line with the best tone of voice.
Just remember that energy is really important! Being able to pick up on her energy will help you to meet her at a level that is the most comfortable for her, so try to get a sense of where she’s at. Is she being shy? Is she is a really good mood? Is she a little bit withdrawn? Is she giving you signals that she would like to be adventurous right now? These are all important things to pick up on if you want to stand any chance of finding success with your pickup line.
Silly Chemistry Pickup Lines
Let’s start off with some light-hearted chemistry pickup lines. These are awesome for that girl in your class who happens to be a science nerd, or for the partner in your group who hates science just enough that these lines will really get her laughing.
Remember that the trick with silly pickup lines is to get her laughing and to lighten the mood. Never use these lines thinking that you will automatically sweep her off to the bedroom. Dropping one of these properly should, hopefully, get her smiling and brighten up the energy. They can also, however, be used to display subtle signs of intent—and can be great for giving her low-key signals that you are into her, but that you also don’t want to make it awkward.
Here are some of our favorites.
“Are you made of Copper and Tellurium? Because you are Cu-Te!”
“Hey girl… I’ve got my ion you!”
“Do you have 11 protons? Cuz you’re Sodium fine!”
“My name is Bond. Covalent Bond!”
“Are you full of Beryllium, Gold, and Titanium? Because you re Be-Au-Ti-Ful!”
Obviously, these pickup lines are only going to work really well on girls who know what they mean. The president of the science club, the girl who won that award at the science fair, or the girl who is known for her chemistry proficiency are going to be the types of ladies who will enjoy these the most!
More Serious Chemistry Pickup Lines
So you’re looking to level-up your dating game and want something a bit more sultry? Here are some pickup lines that might work on a more serious level. These lines are still great for lightening the mood… but if the situation is right, and if you pull it off well, there can also be a hint of real sexual tension hidden within them.
Use these lines when you feel like the energy is really good, and you want to make your intentions a bit more obvious. But be careful how you use them, and pay attention to context! You have to find the right type of situation to use them in. But if you pull it off well, in the perfect situation, they may very well provoke the kind of response that will spark some real flames!
“I think you may have lost an electron… because you are positively attractive!”
“You’re like an exothermic reaction. You spread hotness everywhere!”
“You must be hydrogen, because I am really feeling like there is a bond here.”
“I have recently discovered a very rare element, called Beautium. It looks like you’re made of it!”
“I feel a chemical bond between us.”
Remember that some pickup lines need to be set-up. For example, if she tells you that she recently accomplished something really awesome (succeeded at an experiment, got a good grade, passed a test, etc.), follow it up with number 3 from above.
“Ah, congratulations! You are so talented! You may have heard that I recently discovered a new, and very rare, element. It is called Beautium. And I believe you may be made of it!”
Yes, it is a little bit silly. But… the point here is that you are finding a silly, fun way to tell her she looks beautiful. Making it a joke will lighten the mood and will doubtlessly make it feel less awkward.
Our Least Favorite Chemistry Pickup Lines
These are ridiculous and cringe worthy! But they are still hilarious. We don’t feel like these should ever really be used unless you want to be laughed at. But they’re still worth a share!
“My favorite element must be uranium, because I love U.”
“You must be copper because I always CU in my dreams.”
“You must be the acid to my litmus paper because every time I meet you I turn bright red.”
“Baby, I know my chemistry, and you’ve got one significant figure.”
“You must be a good benzene ring because you are pleasantly aromatic.”
Eww. Yeah, unless you are trolling your long-time wife or girlfriend, these are probably not going to be good to say in any situation—unless you just want to provoke some laughs.
Being a little bit cheesy and ridiculous is certainly not a bad thing. In fact, taking things too seriously is almost never a good thing. But there is a limit to how silly you should be… and in our opinion, pickup lines like these are just going to be almost too ridiculous for just about every situation.
Our Favorite Chemistry Pickup Lines
And now, for the finale. These pickup lines are, hands down, our favorite chemistry pickup lines. These are probably the most useful, versatile, and safe pickup lines that you can use. They could also be used in a lot of different types of situations.
“You look so familiar. Did we take a class together? I could have sworn we had chemistry.”
“You can feel free to hydrolyze me whenever you want.”
“Hey sexy… wanna be my lab partner?”
“You’re such a perfect arrangement of atoms.”
“I’m a bit of a chemist myself. Do you want to let me experiment with you?”
Obviously, none of these are so ‘magical’ that they are going to get a girl to leap into bed with you without a second thought. But if used at the proper time, with a hint of silliness and a little bit of seriousness to go along with it, pickup lines like these can really get her attention, make her aware of your intentions, and also give her enough room to think without making her feel like she is being put on the spot.
Sometimes, all a girl needs is permission to pursue her ‘bolder’ interests!
Remember, it is all about context.
You’re at a party and you see a cute girl? “You look so familiar. Did we take a class together? I could have sworn we had chemistry” could make for a perfect, yet light-hearted ice-breaker.
You walk in on a conversation where some people are giggling about oral sex. Your crush happens to be in the group. “Ah, sexual experimentation! I dabble. And I’m always on the lookout for a lab partner!”
If you can say this one with a bit of mystery surrounding it, you may be able to get her wondering about you. Does he have a lot of experience? Is he underplaying it and seriously good at oral sex? Is he actually a low-key lady’s man, but isn’t letting on that he is? I wonder if he’s really as good in bed as his confidence suggests?
This one will work even better if you point it at a group of ladies, making each one wondering who you meant it for. If you can come off smooth and confident, it will plant a lot of seeds without hurting your chances at all, and may even provoke some giggles.
Don’t worry if the girls make fun of you a bit for it. Sometimes, if a girl pokes fun at you, it may be a way to mask the fact that she thinks you are sexy or attractive.
What you don’t want to do is use a line like this on a girl as a means to get her to say ‘yes.’ The goal should be to provoke a laugh and to build rapport. If you can succeed at making her feel a little bit more comfortable, and contribute to her having a good time, while also provoking some possible internal curiosities about yourself… well, let’s just say that your chances will be a lot better!
