The Meaning of "Rizz"

The creation of the word Rizz is credited to none other than Kai Cenat, known for his success as a Youtube and Twitch Streamer. What does the word mean? Rizz is basically a 2022/2023 version of "game," in the sense that it is essentially how much game you have when trying to talk to a potential romantic partner, and of course, whether or not you are successful in getting the digits. Let’s make something very clear here people, it’s not “Rizz” if you don’t get the digits. You gotta get the number (the right number not the wrong one), and a date. That is the meaning of Rizz.

Where does "Rizz" come from?

Many believe Rizz to be an abbreviation of "Charisma" by extracting the middle syllable to make it a standalone word. While charisma is certainly part of the notion of "Rizz," the slang word has taken on a bit of a meaning of its own.

What is good rizz?

While there’s no official definition of what’s a good or bad “Rizz,” we’d venture to say that most pickup lines aren’t going to work, unless they are so outrageous that perhaps the person gives you a chance because they can’t stop laughing. Your best bet is to probably just use your natural swag/charisma/charm, and start a natural conversation with maybe a compliment or two throw in that isn’t too “much” if you catch our drift. As long as you are yourself, then it should work out if it’s meant to be.

What is bad rizz?

“Are you a parking ticket? Cause you've got fine written all over you?”

“If I could rearrange the alphabet, I’d put “U” and “I” together.”

“I’m not currently an organ donor, but I’d love to give you my heart.”

“Did we go to school together? I swear we had chemistry.”

“Are you a keyboard? Because you might just be my type.”

You get the drift.
