The Most Charming (And Cheesiest) French Pick-Up Lines

What are the most common French pick-up lines?

Learning French pick-up lines is a great way to get your romance on in the language of love. From charming to cheesy, these 20 phrases “de drague” are perfect for your next French interaction.

Couple in Paris

No matter what language you’re speaking, knowing what to say to spark a little romance is a skill most would like to master. If you’ll soon be catching a flight to Paris or another French-speaking city, some French pick-up lines might be just what you need.

Whether they make you cringe, crack up, or crumble in front of a potential suitor, cultures around the world use them–including one of the most romantic ones. 

Most of the French use a well-said compliment, a surprise bouquet of flowers, or a fun night out on the town to draguer (flirt with) the person of their dreams. But the perfectly placed pick-up line is a great way to break the ice, get a laugh, or even make you stand out from the crowd.

Pick-up lines are not very common in French, but I went ahead and did some digging on French websites as well as into my own text messages to find some pick-up lines that the French actually use.
