As teenagers with a social media presence, many of us have seen the trend on Tiktok, Twitter, and Instagram of people coming up with innovative stanzas as a way to sway over their crush. This activity is called poetic rizz. What does Riz even mean? As dictionary.com states, “Rizz is a slang term for skill in charming or seducing a potential romantic partner, especially through verbal communication. It is most commonly applied in the context of men pursuing women, but not always.” As a humble moderator, I’m here to offer my opinion on some of the best I’ve seen so far. So without further ado, here are some of the top 5(ranked worst to best) on the trend sweeping the nation.

  1. “I don’t love you with my heart or mind. I love you with my soul, in case my mind forgets and my heart stops.”-@patricksalvatore 

Starting off with a classic, this line is an easy way to have who you desire sway your way. Don’t shoot them this text during regular hours. This text is more of a lowkey vibe. This one should definitely be kept in the back pocket ready to be used. 

  1. “When I see your face, there is nothing I would change. Except for the direction I was walking in.”-@rolexx._.lah

This “rizz” is a great backwards joke for your friends. Sometimes this can be seen as a morale booster or a dirty joke just to get back at someone. Good to keep this on deck anytime the group chat gets too heated. 

  1. “If I got a flower for every time I thought of you I would only have one as you never left my mind, and that flower I would give to you.” -@feral_bird 

This is something I would only send on valentines day. This line contains some of the smoothest pickup rizz I’ve ever heard to date. Honestly, as John Rutledge states, “Bring it on home John B.”  

  1. “They say God makes no mistakes and yet I truly believed that until I laid my eyes on you.”-@rolexx._.lah 

Another “roast rizz” to be used only with some of your best friends. Another backwards joke that can be sent to one of your group chats that needs to be silenced. It’s another great thing to keep on deck anytime the group chat gets too heated. 

  1. “If you were broken glass, I would bleed endlessly just to have the privilege to hold you.”[email protected] 

Don’t send this to anyone with hemophobia but this line is very useful to help one of the homies out. This is another one that should definitely be kept in the back pocket ready to be used. 

Well even if you don’t use these for their intended purposes I hope you enjoyed reading them. Whether you want to send a roast to someone you aren’t fond of or send an extremely risky text, I hope you found these lines to be useful.
