The Cheesiest Spanish Pickup Lines That Work Every Time
When teenagers get to high school, they tend to feel nervous not only because of classes, but because of new people, situations, and most of all, feelings! Various experts consider adolescence to be the best time of life because most physical and mental functions—such as the development of the body, the individual creation of their self-esteem, their need to be independent, and their social skills—are more fully developed during the teenage years.
Also in adolescence, new, radical, and divergent ideas have a profound impact on the imagination. Creativity works in so many ways for teenagers: it gives them the ability to come up with an idea to hand in projects at the last minute, it helps them to think about funny jokes, gives them the chance to make new friends all the time, and, the funniest part of all, it lets them think about cheesy Spanish pickup lines in order to woo someone they like.
How Cheesy Pickup Lines Work
Corny Spanish pickup lines are a true challenge—they either work wonders or fail miserably. They have the potential to be funny and sweet or the complete opposite: overly degrading and too forward.
The key to finding the right pickup line is to make sure they come across as non-threatening, and they can totally work.
For example, if a guy says to a girl:
Ojalá fueras bombero para apagar el fuego de mi deseo.
(If only you were a firefighter to be able to put out the fire of my desire.)
The girl on the receiving end is likely to feel offended or threatened in some way, and she will never talk to him again.
Instead, if the guy says something smoother like:
Perdí mi número, ¿puedo tener el tuyo?
I lost my number, can I have yours?
She’s probably going to laugh, which is a good thing! Girls like a funny guy, and she’s also more likely to give him her number.
As a woman, I assure you that if you are original, funny, flirtatious, and you know how to deliver your message correctly, you’ll definitely get the girl’s attention.
Flirt in Latin America
If you find yourself traveling or living abroad in Latin America, how can you know which pickup lines to use? It’s important to know that in this part of the world countries are collectivists, which means that societies here maintain close family ties and individuals express pride and loyalty in organizations and family. And in relation to high schoolers, this loyalty is a little bit more intense because of the life stage they’re going through.
For example, if you want to get someone’s number in Latin America, don’t try to make jokes about their family or friends (even if they’re harmless and innocent) because first, you might offend the other person and second, you’ll definitely lose your chance.
So, What Do You Say to Get Attention?
I’ve compiled a list of the best, the cheesiest, and the funniest Spanish pickup lines that you can use to get a person’s attention while also making them laugh (with you, not at you!):
|¿Cómo se siente ser la mujer más linda en esta sala?||What does it feel like to be the most beautiful girl in this room?|
|Pasas tanto tiempo en mi mente, debería cobrarte alquiler.||You spend so much time on my mind, I should charge you rent.|
|¿Crees en el amor a primera vista, o debo pasar enfrente tuyo otra vez?||Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by you again?|
|Hey, siente mi suéter. ¿Sabes de qué está hecho? De material de novio. *insertar guiño*||Hey girl, feel my sweater. Know what it’s made of? Boyfriend material. *wink*|
|¿Hablamos o seguimos jugando a mirarnos?||Do we talk, or keep playing around looking at each other?|
|¡Eres tan linda que se me olvidó el piropo que te iba a decir!||You are so pretty I forgot the pickup line I was gonna tell you!|

|No pude evitar notar que te pareces mucho a mi próxima novia.||I couldn’t help but notice that you look a lot like my next girlfriend.|
|Perdona, creo que me debes un lapicero. (Espera a que la otra persona pregunte por qué) Porque se me cayó el mío mirándote.||Excuse me, I think you owe me a pen. (Wait for the other person to ask why) Because I dropped mine staring at you.|

If you follow these easy tips, your chances will definitely increase and you will have so much more fun in high school!
