But the real magic is in your first impression, and these people are good examples of what a striking opener can do for you.

Note: Since most pick-up lines are delivered male-to-female, the rest of this post will assume that you are a guy trying to impress a girl.

Before You Start…

Traditionally, pick-up lines are seen as ineffective and juvenile — and in any other context, they are. But on Tinder, the rules are different. Since Tinder has become the de facto standard for mobile hookups, pick-up lines are actually somewhat necessary.

After all, you need an icebreaker, but not just any icebreaker. You’re not looking for a serious conversation or an intimate bonding experience over swapped life stories. You need something quick, to the point, and something that ideally makes the other person laugh.


Enter the pick-up line. With that in mind, here are a few more things to remember as you think about which pick-up lines you’re going to use.

She’s on Tinder, which means she understands what Tinder is about and she’s looking to get what Tinder offers. In most cases, that means a casual fling or something similar. She’s already bought into the idea, so that’s already half the battle won.

She swiped right for you. You can only message those who have “accepted” your profile, which means you can only try your pick-up lines on girls who have already decided to give you a chance. You’re already “in” with her, so don’t be afraid to go all out.

Contextual line > canned line. Some canned lines are good enough to stand on their own — and some so clever that it’d be a shame not to use them — but if you can come up with a line that matches the situation, you’ll set yourself apart.

Long story short, that first impression has to be spectacular. Here are some examples. Warning: Mature content below!

The Pick-Up Lines


Sometimes being honest and straightforward is the best way to go.


Rather than presenting the other person a single line that they can either accept or reject wholesale, you might fair better if you get them actively engaged with a miniature guessing game and pull a plot twist on them at the end.


Creativity can be the difference between a Yes and a No. The above exchange is little more than asking for a phone number, but the execution is novel.


Another example of a straightforward phone number request masked with unexpected creativity.


Everyone hates puns — except when they’re good. There’s a growing trend in Tinder that involves using the other person’s name in a punny way. If you can land the joke, it’s pretty much a guaranteed win.


Double entendres have long been a staple of dating quips. Not much else to say about this one.


If they say “No”, then you better stop. But if they don’t stop you, persistence can be quite flattering.


Not as clever as the ones before, but straightforward mixed with unexpected can have pretty good results.


Another example of a name pun. See? It works.

    You're serious? There are women who would find that lines funny and flattering? I think these lines are pure stupid and not flattering at all. I would be offended if someone I barely know talked to me this way.

    Tinder is a really powerful app to get dates, but I'm sure you're not getting out the most of it...
    Not using the right pics, not adding an interesting bio description or bad conversation start can make that you're potential date lose all interest on you...

    Take a look at: and with this step-to-step guide I'm sure you're gonna be dating a wonderful girl in less than you think :)

    give it a try!
