I think you could explain us (explain TO us)
Flirting, pick up lines, funny anecdotes
To flirt / a flirt / flirty (informal) = flirtatious
To chat up (someone) / To chat (someone) up – Remember object can be after or before preposition for most phrasal verbs
To pick up (someone)
To pull (someone), to be ‘on the pull’
To ask out (someone)
To be attracted to (someone)

To be hot
To have the hots (for someone) – informal
To be taken by (someone)
To have a thing for (someone) – informal

How has flirting changed over the years?
What’s the best way to approach someone you fancy?
How important is body language, intonation, eye contact, etc?
Do you have a funny or embarrassing story about a time you tried to pick someone up?
Some tried and tested, albeit clichéd, pick up lines
Haven’t I seen you somewhere before?
I don’t think I’ve seen you here before.
Do you come here often? – NB. extremely clichéd!
(So), what brings you here?
Do you mind if…I sit here/I join you?
Is this seat taken?
Can I buy you a drink?
…and now it’s your turn to practise your English. Do you have a funny or embarrassing story about a time you tried to pick someone up? We’d love to hear it.

“Do you believe in love at first sight—or should I walk by again?”
“Is your name Google? Because you’ve got everything I’m searching for.”
“I was feeling a little off today—but you’ve turned me on again!”
“I am going to complain to Spotify about you not being this week’s hottest single.”
“Is your name Wi-fi? Because I’m really feeling a connection.”
