The other day I was queuing for a drink at a bar, when a guy approached me and said, ‘Hey! You’re in my biology class!’ When I replied with a smile and a friendly, ‘Aww, you must be thinking of someone else – I don’t do biology,’ he replied with a cheeky, ‘Well, would you like to?’ Yep, super cringe.


But at the same time, chat up lines are made to make the other person smile. It might be an awkward get-me-away-from-here smile, but if they like the look of you, they won’t be going anywhere. Or, at least, they’ll be lured back before long.

It also means you’ve won over someone with a sense of humour which is always a bonus!  Plus, think about your ‘how we first met’ story!

We asked a selection of students what their funniest, most memorable chat-up lines were, and here are our results! We’ve also tweaked a few classics ready for student dating. Be warned: they’re flirty, they’re cheesy, some are outrageous, but they’re sure to make you smile:

Would you sleep with me in return for your student loan being wiped? (If they answer with a ‘yes’):
Well, now we’ve established what you are, let’s negotiate.Is it cool to buy you several drinks?

Getting a date with you: priceless. For everything else, there’s my student loan.

Touch my jumper – does it feel like boyfriend material?

Ever had a parking ticket? Because you’ve got ‘fine’ written all over you.

Do you go to the uni gym? Or do you just stick to running through my thoughts all day?

I suffer from amnesia – do I come here often?

Hey, I’m just doing a survey for uni. What’s your name, number, and are you free next Saturday?

My friend over there wants to know if you think I’m cute.

Hey, I’m in a rock band!

Apart from being beautiful, what else do you study?

Do you believe in love at first sight, or shall I walk past again?

So, now it’s your turn! Remember, you can use chat-up lines in person or over the web. Which ones will you try? Or do you have any of your own tucked up your sleeve? Comment below!
