16 Best Tinder Opening Lines for Guys

With these 16 best Tinder opening lines for guys, getting yourself a date will be a piece of cake.

Are you stressed out by dating as well? So much effort is required to get someone to like us nowadays, it feels like work. In fact, when it comes to online dating, it’s all about selling yourself. Yes, that’s what I said because in a world where people have like one second to decide if they like you or not based entirely on a photo (which can be very misleading at times), how else would you call it? If you’re on Tinder, you have to accept the fact that it’s just the way it works so don’t take it too personally if you’re rejected. We know, even though Tinder is known as an app designed especially for one-night stands, it doesn’t mean it’s easy to hook up with someone at all. The reputation Tinder has acquired may mislead you into thinking that all it takes is to sign up and that’s it, but it’s not. Girls will be girls, so they expect you to amuse them, make them laugh, spark an interest or knock them off their feet with your seductive smile and a great photo (quite often the last one is enough).

Girls on Tinder have plenty of choices, and I admit, it’s much easier for us, girls, to get a date but that’s just because we don’t have to try as hard as guys. There’s a lot of competition there, and that’s why you need to polish your profile and get an awesome photo of yourself. Last, but not least, you have to come up with some Tinder opening lines to start the conversation. While girls can rely on our list of 12 best Tinder openers to use on guys, you can either check out the 18 Best Tinder Pick Up Lines that Work or stick with us and get the best Tinder conversation starters. Once you get a match and you decide to message the girl, that simple step is quite often the deciding factor of whether you’ll go out or not. If you make her laugh with a funny opening line, she’ll probably text back. If you start with something so boring and ordinary, there’s a great chance she’ll just ignore you, unless you’re the only one messaging her. So what you need are Tinder lines that work every time, and we’ll get to them in a moment.

But before we introduce our list of Tinder ice breakers, we need to emphasize one thing. Yes, opening lines are crucial to getting a date but getting a date doesn’t mean that the struggle is over. What do you do when you actually get a date? If you want it to go as smooth as possible, pay attention to time and location you chose for your date, as well as the proximity of the place (in case if the date sucks and you want to go home earlier). Here are a few things you need to know about the first date so take a look at it.

According to Virtual Dating Assistant, a great opening line contains 3 key elements: it’s easy to respond to, it makes the girl feel something instantly, and it’s funny or creative. Lines that don’t get her to feel anything will simply make her ignore your message. Remember that if a girl is attractive, she probably gets plenty of those, so she is looking for someone to spark an emotion, and you either have to be humorous and witty or smooth to achieve that. Having this in mind, we compiled a list of lines that contain these elements. We scrolled through so many lines on ViDA, ThoughtCo, and The Webtrovert that it was actually difficult to single out only 16 of them. According to people’s experiences, these lines actually work. Perhaps you are already familiar with some of them, or you’ve even tried them out.

Now, if you want to kickstart a fruitful conversation, let’s take a look at 16 best Tinder opening lines for guys.
