‘Is your name Wi-Fi, because I’m feeling a connection’ has officially been ranked as the best chat-up line of all time, according to new research.

A poll of single Brits found that the chat-up line is making a resurgence – with youngsters being the most likely to use the old-fashioned dating ice-breaker.

Roughly a quarter of those aged between 16 and 29-years-old – categorised as Gen Z – admit they have wheeled out a cheesy one liner on a love interest compared to just 11 per cent of singles aged between 30 and 49, and nine per cent of over 50s.

From this, more than one in ten Gen Z singles said they prefer to deliver a chat-up line via message or dating apps than face-to-face.

Nearly 10 per cent admitted pick-up lines were great for online dating, with one in twenty confessing they even use Chat GPT to source their material.

The new study has also found that females are more likely to use the lines with almost as many women (11 per cent) using them as men (14 per cent).

According to fans of the cheeky introduction, the flirty phrase: ‘Is your name Wi-Fi? Because I’m feeling a connection’ is the best conversation opener to use on a date.

Also ranking high on the list was, ‘Is your name Google? Cause you’re what I’ve been searching for’, ‘Are you a parking ticket? Cause you’ve got fine written all over you’, and, ‘Should we get coffee? Cause I like you a latte’.

The classic double-entendre, ‘If I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?’ is also still going strong, according to 13 per cent of modern Brits.

Meanwhile, ‘What number should I use to text you goodnight?’ and ‘Is your name Chamomile? Cause you’re a hot-tea’ are firm favourites.

Jon Horsley, of insights agency Perspectus Global which carried out the research, said: ‘We wanted to find out what the best (worst) chat up lines are, according to the nation, and were delighted to see that the cheeky introduction is used by both men and women.

‘And if you’re stuck knowing what to say, even after reading our top 20 list, you can always use AI to flirt with your crush.’
