50 Best Science Pick Up Lines
1. My love for you is like the universe… never-ending!
Why It's Great: This one is sweet, although a bit nerve-wracking, especially when thinking about our infinite universe. Sometimes, there are no words to explain how much you love someone. Comparing your love to the universe means there's no end, since we're it's always growing.
When To Use It: Say this when you're stargazing with your special someone. You've got the moon, stars, and the sky as your stage. This pickup line is all you need to make the night special!
2. Your infectious smile puts Cholera to shame.
Why It's Great: Let's not focus on the Cholera. Instead, draw your attention to how sweet this line describes their smile. This might not be a pickup line suited for everyone, but for those who're up for it, this can give them a good laugh.
When To Use It: Use this when you know the other person isn't sensitive to these things. Better tell this to someone you've known for quite a while, one who gets your jokes.
Follow Up: Let's hope their smile isn't deadly as well...
3. For some reason, my cardiovascular system becomes restless when you're around.
Why It's Great: In other 'mushier' words, "My heart beats a thousand beats per second for you." It'll surely flatter the person who'll hear this pickup line. They must've not known the effect they'd have on you!
When To Use It: Say this during a quiet chat between you. Timed right, they'll feel the sincerity in your words.
4. Does your body produce energy by turning water into electricity? Well, damn.
Why It's Great: This is another way of saying that they look ravishing! Hydroelectric power converts mechanical energy to produce electricity - by saying this, you're saying they emit this tremendous power and charisma that make every head turn. You'll need immense power to be able to do that!
When To Use It: Best to use this when you pick them up for a date or prom! When your eyes lock, don't stutter and say how great they look.
5. You must be related to Alfred Nobel because, baby, you are dynamite!
Why It's Great: Alfred Nobel developed both dynamite and an explosive device called a blasting cap in 1866. When someone says you're dynamite, it means you're exciting!
When To Use It: You can use it any time! But for the best results, make sure to say it when they're looking to be complimented on their dynamite body.
6. Do you want to be my lab partner? I think we could have some great chemistry together.
Why It's Great: A classic pickup line that tells her you might be compatible. If you and your girl have great chemistry, you're better off with each other than by yourselves.
When To Use It: This is perfect to use when you're instructed to choose a partner to perform a task. It may be at school, work, or in your community. Bonus points for actually needing to work at a lab for it!
7. Are we going to do some gravity experiments? Okay, let's test how fast I would freefall for you.
Why It's Great: This is a smooth way to say, 'I fell in love with you.' What comes up must come down, but your feelings won't ever go back down.
When To Use It: Go ahead and invite someone to do a random experiment with you. Ask them which falls faster, a coin or a rock. I didn't know the answer when I asked her this, but before we found out the answer, I uttered this line. She was so flattered she forgot to answer!
8. Are you a centripetal force? Because you make my world go round.
Why It's Great: When they hear this, they'll think they are the center of your world. Physics may not be a strong subject for you, but you're willing to learn it to impress them.
When To Use It: This is a sweet topic to talk about when you go out for a snack! By the way, I'm talking about how they turn your world and not about the centripetal force.
Follow Up: A centripetal force forces an object to move in a circular motion. Otherwise, it would stay moving straight ahead, and you might have missed your chance!
9. Of all the rocks in the world, I'd pick you.
Why It's Great: The universe has led you to this special person among all the other rocks out there. It's like how a scientist picks out his favorite element amongst all the others on the periodic table. It's the sign of a special connection.
When To Use It: There's no wrong moment to bring this line - but if you ask me, you should reserve it for your partner. This works well as an anniversary message, too!
10. My psychiatrist sent me for an MRI because she thinks I have a magnetic personality.
Why It's Great: MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging; it works by creating a temporary magnetic field in your body. Show them how you can lure them using your incredible attractive force. You know what they say about magnets - opposites attract!
When To Use It: Best to say this when you're just walking at the park, and you plan to hold their hand or put your arms around their shoulders. Your excuse will be your 'magnetic' personality.
11. I feel an attraction between the two of us that is more than just our physical gravitation.
Why It's Great: This is one way to tell someone you like that you're attracted to them, and not just on a physical level. You're attracted not only to their beauty, but also their personality. This may also give them the idea that you want to take your relationship to another level.
When To Use It: Use it when you want to confess your feelings to someone without saying it outright. I once had second thoughts about asking a girl to be my girlfriend. I feared she would reject me then, so I used this line instead of directly asking her to be mine. It honestly worked better than saying it outright would have; she gave me a chance later on.
Follow Up: Gravity not only pulls you down, but can also push you together.
12. You be the battery, I'll be the aluminum foil, and we'll light up the world together.
Why It's Great: Connecting pieces aluminum foil to both ends of the battery creates a weak circuit. The foil isn't made for that transfer of energy, so the energy has nowhere else to go, thus resulting in a flame. In a sense, it's a sort of firestarter - a perfect analogy for the fire she started in your heart.
When To Use It: Is there a blackout in your neighborhood? That's your chance to say this line. Always find the silver lining behind dark clouds!
13. I know hundreds of Pi digits, but what I really want to know is the 7 digits of your phone number.
Why It's Great: Can asking for a phone number get any smoother than this line? We all know what Pi is, I'm sure. Their number may not have as many digits, but it's way more important to you than Pi is.
When To Use It: When you see that special person, you know you might never get to see them again. Ask for their number outright so you don't miss your chance!
14. The two of us go perfectly together like hydrogen and oxygen.
Why It's Great: Nothing says a perfect pair like what makes up water. Hydrogen and oxygen creates water when combined, that's why we call it H2O. You may have different personalities, but you still create a harmonious combination.
When To Use It: Say this if your special person has second thoughts about being with you. You just need to convince them you're perfect together and willing to make it work.
15. You must be from the cosmos, because your body is heavenly.
Why It's Great: I'm sure they've heard plenty of compliments about their body, but they just have to be said. There's nothing on this Earth that can be compared to their beauty, so, you can say it's otherworldly.
When To Use It: Compliment them with this line when they dress up for a date or an event. Never let their efforts to look good for you go unnoticed!
16. Could you tell me the oxidation state of this atom and your phone number?
Why It's Great: A smooth way to confuse them into giving you their number. Each element in the periodic table has its own oxidation number, so it's something most people don't try to remember after they learned it in school. They may just be puzzled enough about the first part, so they might just give you their number instead.
When To Use It: Ask this to get a person's number. They might not give it to you if you just approach them and ask for it plainly - so, being creative about it could get you the outcome that you want.
17. Like the ideal vacuum, you're the only thing in my universe.
Why It's Great: Nobody and nothing else is inside their hearts right now except you! You'll break the concept of the ideal vacuum because you'll fill their hearts.
When To Use It: If you've argued quite a bit, there's no better way to woo them than by saying they're the only one you live for.
Follow Up: The universe is the perfect vacuum because it has nothing else. This way, you're making sure they're the only thing in your universe.
18. The direction fields of my heart all point to you.
Why It's Great: That's hard to imagine, considering they point in several directions, which makes this line all the sweeter!
When To Use It: When you're playing basketball, baseball, or football - shout this line when you score a point!
19. Just like osteoarthritis, you're making me weak in the knees.
Why It's Great: This is a great way to show them they have a major influence on you!
Osteoarthritis is also known as the wear and tear arthritis. The cartilage, which protects the joints, starts to break down, resulting in pain. Making you weak in the knees is one thing, but they also inspire you to get up after it.
When To Use It:Naturally, you can use this any time you want to tell them about how weak in the knees you get for them. It's just a little cleverer.
20. Your angles must be less than 90 degrees because I think that you are so cute.
Why It's Great: This cheesy pickup line guarantees a smile from your special person. They must be an acute person to be so charming!
When To Use It: You can use this pickup line anytime. When you see they're extra glowing today, compliment them and make their day brighter.
Follow Up: Acute angles are the smallest and narrowest of them all, which, along with their name, is why they're so cute.
21. I am a chemist. Want to get together and see the reaction?
Why It's Great: They say love is a chemical reaction, and what's more chemically stimulating than a little bit of flirting? That's why this pickup line is so good - it's clever and hits the right notes without being too direct.
When To Use It: When you're ready to get together with that special someone, you should use this to lighten the mood! If you've got good chemistry going, this should never fail.
Follow Up: Act like a real scientist. Form a hypothesis: them and you are perfect together. Test out your theories, and don't be afraid to experiment. And don't forget to share your findings with them.
22. You are like an electron, and I am like a proton. And they say that opposites attract.
Why It's Great: Like electrons and protons, you don't need to be similar to complement each other well. By saying this, you're telling them that, "We could be different, but we'd still make a great match."
When To Use It: Do they hear other people's opinions saying you don't fit together? Counter those with this pickup line.
Follow Up: You both can have a positive charge in the relationship.
23. I'm not an astronomer, but I promise to give you the Sun, moon, and stars.
Why It's Great: You could give a house, a fancy car, or a piece of jewelry, but if you're going to do that, may as well include heavenly bodies in the mix. They're worth way more than any of these, but it comes close.
When To Use It: Use this line to show someone how willing you are to give them everything they could want. You may not have the world to give them, but you'll work hard to make them happy.
Follow Up: Even an astronomer couldn't give someone these things, but they could show you what they looked like up close.
24. Your pH factor must be 14 because you're the most basic need in my life right now.
Why It's Great: A clever way to say that you need them to be able to exist. pH factor is the measure of how acidic or basic water is. It ranges from 0 to 14, with 7 as the neutral point. Less than 7 is acidic, and more than that is basic.
When To Use It: Tell them how much you need them in your life when they do something special for you. These little act of love is what makes your life worth living.
25. The Roses are red. Bromothymol is blue. My love for you doesn't have an endpoint.
Why It's Great: It doesn't rhyme, but it makes sense and still sounds like it flows. The point here is that you've found the one you will love forever.
When To Use It: Do I hear wedding bells? Use this line to share some hints about an upcoming marriage proposal.
26. You raise my dopamine levels.
Why It's Great: Tell someone that you're in love with them using this line. High dopamine levels in your body give you a euphoric feeling - the same sensation you feel when you're in love.
When To Use It: Tell your special someone how much their presence affects you. It's a great way to start your dinner date!
Follow Up: Hopefully, not by too much. High dopamine levels can cause stress and anxiety, among other things.
27. Are you a carbon sample? Because I want to date you.
Why It's Great: Carbon dating is a method used to determine the age of organic materials. If they know what you're talking about, they'll either agree to your date or tell you their age. Either one works!
When To Use It:There's no smoother way to ask someone for a date - scientist style. Hey, men of Science can also be romantic!
28. When I see you, I feel like I will reach my melting point.
Why It's Great: There's no better way to tell them you melt in their presence. There's this sensation in you that feels like you're burning at their touch.
When To Use It: Use it when you confess your feelings for your special someone. There's nothing wrong with admitting that they have this effect on you - it's flattering but also true.
29. I was wondering if you like Science because I have had my ion you for some time.
Why It's Great: It lets them know that you notice them and have been admiring them from a distance for a while now. Maybe it's time to ask if they want an 'ionic bond.'
When To Use It: This one's probably best if sent through text, so she'll get the pun. If you need flirty texts to send her, make sure to use plenty of these science puns!
30. You must be a fossil because I would love to date you.
Why It's Great: Fossils are worth being compared to — they're special, rare, and valuable. Fossilized amber, for instance, is an incredibly valuable gem!
When To Use It: Do you want to ask someone out on a date? Ask them out with this pickup line. They'll see that you're smart and fun to be with!
31. According to the second law of thermodynamics, you're supposed to share your hotness with me.
Why It's Great: This one makes you seem like a real intellectual. Not everyone knows what the second law of Thermodynamics is - and pairing it up with a clever pun only cements that you've got a big brain.
When To Use It: Don't know how to tell someone they're hot without sounding like a creep? Then use this line to compliment someone you find sexy. They'll be impressed that you even know the second law of Thermodynamics.
Follow Up: The second law of thermodynamics states that hot things always cool down unless, of course, you stop that from happening...
32. If you go out with me, I promise I won't take you for granite.
Why It's Great: Witty and funny. This one's sure to make them smile! Tell them right away how you're going to treat them, so that they know you're going to treat them right.
When To Use It: Do they still say no to your invitation to go out? Maybe a little chuckle will make them say 'yes.' Try this pickup line and let it work its magic!
33. Everyone knows it's not the size of the vector that matters, but the way the force is delivered.
Why It's Great: This will surely tickle their senses! It's sexy and yet still leaves room for imagination. I'm sure that if their mind wanders on this topic, they'll be so curious to find out for themselves if it's true.
When To Use It: Feeling a little naughty? This is one of the smoothest ways to transition your casual conversation to a spicier one. We all love entendres, don't we?
34. You seem to be traveling at the speed of light, because time always stops when I look at you.
Why It's Great: This tells them that nothing else seems important when you look at them. Everything stops, and your focus shifts onto one person, just like romance movies' slow-mo scenes, when the main characters finally meet.
When To Use It: Do they seem too busy, and work is all piled up? Say this out of the blue - that'll give them a breather.
Follow Up: The speed of light is 299 792 458 miles per second. At the speed of light, there is no passage of time.
35. I'm attracted to you like the Earth is attracted to the Sun – with a large force inversely proportional to the distance squared.
Why It's Great: This tells them you can't be without them; they give you the energy to keep going. Imagine the world without the Sun - it's dark and cold, and nothing can live within it.
When To Use It: When you're ready to confess your feelings for them, this line will work well for you!
36. Even if I were a T-Rex, I would find a way to hug you.
Why It's Great: Perfect as a lead-in to a hilarious conversation. Its full name is Tyrannosaurus Rex; it has a big head, muscular jaw, a powerful tail, and cute, tiny arms. Just imagine how the T-Rex will struggle when they try to hug someone - don't tell me you're not even smiling right now!
When To Use It: Is your special someone feeling a little down and needing a hug? Give them a hug and a dose of laughter! This will help cure their blues.
Follow Up: Make sure to give them a big hug..
37. You and I have such great chemistry together; let's try to do some biology together too.
Why It's Great: Banking on the great chemistry you have, you then give them a line that makes them think things. Perfect for when you want to lead them towards something more... scientifically stimulating.
When To Use It: When the mood is right and you've gotten close enough with them, say this to test the waters. Chances are, you'll make them blush!
38. You must have been born in an open cluster, because you shine like a young star.
Why It's Great: An open cluster is a type of star that's made of tens to a few hundred young stars. There's no better way to tell them they shine in everything they do! And even if they're not doing anything - they still shine to you.
When To Use It: Best to use this when they're about to perform or take the stage. Give them the encouragement and the confidence they need!
Follow Up: A young star that shines brightly in the nighttime sky is super special and beautiful to look at.
39. If there were no gravity on this planet, I would still fall for you.
Why It's Great: This one says, 'I've fallen in love with you.' Without gravity, everything will float in the atmosphere due to the earth's rotation. So, without them to pull you back down to earth, you'd be lost along with everyone else.
When To Use It: This line suggests that you're in love with them. So unless you mean it, better not say it casually.
40. Are you made of Fluorine, Iodine, and Neon? Because you are F-I-Ne.
Why It's Great: Even the periodic table can be used in clever, non-scientific ways. If your special someone's very FINe, make sure to tell them right away!
When To Use It: You should be saying this as much as you can. Being that fine can't be understated, after all.
41. Are you a volcano? Because I love you so much!
Why It's Great: If you lava them (love them), make sure your feelings erupt. Don't wait until they boil over! Make sure that you say it at the right time and emphasize the LAVA(Love)!
When To Use It: Use it when everything is chill, probably over a cup of coffee in the morning. Make their day by saying that you love them!
Follow Up: Make sure to say they're hotter than a volcano when the mood is right
42. Are you a compound of Beryllium and Barium? Because you're a total babe.
Why It's Great: In other words, they're a BaBe. Like the line above, this one is a creative way to compliment the one you're talking to.
When To Use It: Another one that probably works best as a text. Send them this text early in the morning to let them know you're thinking about them.
43. You must be copper because I always CU in my dreams.
Why It's Great: Copper isn't the best comparison, but being a dream girl is definitely a compliment. They must be a really special person for you to dream about them, so let them know!
When To Use It: Text them this before you go to bed. So, before you send a goodnight text, tell them to 'see you' in your dreams.
44. Are you made of Copper and Tellurium? Because you are Cu-Te!
Why It's Great: Copper and tellurium aren't the cutest elements, but they sure are! Even if you've forgotten most of what you know about chemistry by now, you should use what you remember to make some clever lines.
When To Use It: It's a good conversation starter to use when you see someone you want to impress. Who knows where Copper and Tellurium might lead you?
45. Are you sure we haven't had a class together before? I could have sworn that we had chemistry together.
Why It's Great: Another way to use chemistry as an attraction between the two of you. Hopefully, they feel the same chemistry you do.
When To Use It: When it's your first time approaching the person you like, act cool and say this pickup line. Very suave.
46. A sedimentary rock has nothing on your amazing personality's many layers.
Why It's Great: People often use different rocks to describe the person they're after, like diamonds, so they must appreciate this pickup line's uniqueness. A sedimentary rock occurs in layers, which means every layer, just like her personality, can be a surprise.
When To Use It: Use this when they do something you've never shown before. Say this to show that they always catch you by surprise!
47. Did you damage my cerebellum? Because I'm falling all over the place for you.
Why It's Great: You must head over heels in love with your special someone. But please be careful not to damage your head; you can't go on dates if you lose your balance!
When To Use It: Declare your love to someone with the help of this pickup line. It's so clever that they might just say yes.
Follow Up: The cerebellum is a small part of your brain responsible for balance and structure. If you did damage this, you'd really be falling all over the place.
48. You must be my appendix because this feeling in me wants to just take you out.
Why It's Great: Your feelings are so deep that they reach your organs! I advise staying healthy, so there's no reason to take your appendix out.
When To Use It: If all else fails and regular lines aren't working, bring this pickup line out. You've got nothing to lose, and it may just be so jarring it wraps back around to being funny.
Follow Up: Take them out, but not out of your body. Head straight towards a date!
49. The blood is red. Cyanosis is blue. I get tachycardia when I think of you.
Why It's Great: In short, this means: 'My heart beats so fast when I think of you.' This one rhymes, so it's guaranteed to work!
When To Use It: Use this pickup line when you're far apart. This is another way to say that you miss them badly!
50. You must be a red blood cell because you take the oxygen out of my lungs and bring it right to my heart.
Why It's Great: Essentially, you're saying that they're the reason you can function and breathe. It's a passionate and quirky confession that works well if it gets that special someone of yours to think.
When To Use It: Say this while you're on a date. This may be a pickup line, but show them you mean it with all your heart.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do you pick the best science pick up lines?
It's probably best not to use all these science pickup lines one after the other, or all on one person. You want to make your smooth talk feel natural, so you should only choose just a few of these pickup lines. However, that won't be enough! Follow the tips below to figure out how to pick the best ones for a scientifically smart way to flirt!
- Make sure the person gets what you're talking about. There is a mix of science pick up lines here; some are difficult to understand, while others are simpler. Before you begin saying some of these lines, make sure the other person will understand them. It's one thing to come off looking smart, but you'll look more like a smart-aleck if she has no idea what you're talking about.
- Focus on making her smile. Remember, these are pickup lines. Even though these are science related, don't focus too much on making yourself appear intelligent. Choose funnier and wittier lines to give you a lighthearted conversation. You'll most likely scare them away with these big scientific words if she's not interested in science.
- Make sure you know what you're talking about. If you don't completely understand some of these science pick up lines yourself, don't use them or do your research! You don't want to be caught looking like a fool when the person you're talking to takes the conversation further. Odds are, if you're using these lines, the person knows 1 or 2 things about science.
When is the right time to use science pickup lines?
The right time to use science pick up lines is all the time! It's one of the best ways to impress a person you like. Show them that you're smart and romantic at the same time. Furthermore, you should save the more complicated ones for more scientifically inclined people and the simpler ones for those who aren't.
Are science pick-up lines effective?
Based on my experience? Absolutely! These are especially effective if you're trying to woo someone who enjoys the subject. You might be surprised, but there are a lot of people who find science interesting - making these a good conversation starter for nearly all kinds of people.
Should I rely solely on pick-up lines to start a conversation?
Pickup lines are great conversation starters, but don't just rely on those. You can't tell a pickup line to start a conversation with every person you'd want to talk to. What if they're not in a fun mood? Would you still approach them with a pickup line? Make sure that you don't overuse them, and try to learn how to start a conversation using other ways.
What should I do if the other person doesn't respond positively to the pick-up line?
If they don't react in a way you expect, stop and don't push it harder. Either they found it offensive, weren't in the mood, or didn't get it - all of these could lead to social disaster. Apologize if you have to, and try to change the subject. Redeem yourself by using other icebreakers and conversation starters. Remember, you can always try again.
