Obviously no woman anywhere has ever found "Did it hurt when you fell from Heaven?" to be an effective line. I'm just curious...what sorts of things do Spanish speakers say when they're really flirting?

I think the concept of pickup lines is overrated. There is no sentence that will make men and women swoon instantly. It's the way you present yourself that does the trick, and using an obviously rehearsed line on someone you just met is not a good way to present yourself.

But, a cheesy pick up line delivered in just the right tone can be a humorous ice-breaker. I don't think anyone is going to fall for, "I've got my library card and I'm checking you out!" But, it could make someone laugh and get their attention.

I'm not convinced, yet :) I never needed something like that to "break the ice" and I doubt it would have helped. It's probably really a cultural thing.

Lol I'm not sure if its good or bad that I was able to do these lessons on the first try. I don't think it's very useful in context for talking to spanish girls but it was an interesting lesson. The Idioms lesson was more beneficial imo

My most useful line in any language, although obviously very bad for my health, has always been the equivalent of the simple tienes un encendador? Never use the word for "fire" which is commonly used in many languages because its normally a short word. Let them hear you pronounce the longer word for lighter, and if you're fluent in the language intentionally stumble on it a bit. Then BOOM! Conversation just started.

Actually, I've used these lines while on holiday, with eh.. varying success. Varying meaning that non-Spanish speakers (who were using Duolingo to learn Spanish!) had no idea what I was talking about since they hadn't unlocked flirting yet, and native Spanish speakers just laughed in my face. Either way, great success.

Son esos espejos en los pantalones? Porque puedo verme a mí mismo en ellos

Someone said that to me once. Well....in English but ya I got these translations off google, so IDK if they're proper.

¿Funciona tu papá para la NASA? Debido a que usted está fuera de este mundo.

¿Es su papá panadero? Debido a que sus bollos son sorprendentes.

Ese vestido se ve bien en ti, pero que se vería mejor en mi piso.

And in the words of Ron Burgundy "Quiero estar encima de tu"

(Translated in order) Are those mirrors in your pockets? Because I can see myself in them. Does your dad work for NASA? Because you're out of this world. Is your dad a baker? Because your buns are amazing. That dress looks good on you but it would look better on my floor.

And of course I wanna be on you

"Did it hurt when you fell from Heaven?" could easily be a common piropo. They are often kinda lame. A big part of the piropo is also how you deliver it.
