You’ve just matched with that hot girl or guy on Tinder and want to gain their attention. Most people would send a generic message, like “How are you?” or “Hey, hottie!” — which is similar to what the next match might send and kinda boring.
Instead, you could distance yourself from the crowd and send a hilarious Tinder pick-up line that is sure to make your match laugh, which, in my book, is never a bad idea.
My tinder pick up line:
Idk how I'm not married yet.

A good joke, if done properly, can get a reply from that person you’ve matched with. And if you get that far, you’re more than likely to get a date with whomever you’ve swiped right on. It really is a no-brainer to learn a few decent pick-up lines.
Funny Pick-Up Lines Actually Work
People like to laugh, there’s no two ways about it. Thankfully, many people are on the social dating app for either a laugh or to meet someone for a date, or maybe more. There’s no way of knowing, so you might as well have fun with it.
Let’s make your match’s day and send them something funny and interesting. Here are some funny Tinder pick-up lines you should definitely try.
Cheesy Pick-up Lines Aren’t Necessarily Bad
You might think that distancing yourself from cheesy one-liners is a good idea, but don’t. A proper cheesy joke can be golden, if done properly.

The best thing about cheesy jokes are that they’re great for breaking the ice, and I’m not talking about the Titanic. If you can pull-off a good cheesy joke, you’re Gouda. In queso you’re wondering, here’s another cheesy joke to consider, now that you get the point.

If you need some suggestions, the video below has a few. They’re not too bad, and can all be tried on your next match. Just remember, you can make a pun out of anything, which these guys in the video seem to have done.
Next up: Dad jokes. These type of jokes can go a long way. And personally, they’re my favorite. They can be used by both sexes, and can really get the conversation rolling if done correctly.

Dad jokes are much like a cheesy joke, but they’re intended to make a lot of sense — too much sense. Like, when you tell your Dad you’re hungry, and he replies: “Hi Hungry. I’m Dad.” Classic.
In the dating world, you can use this same style of humor to score a date, or at least get a laugh. Below is a Dad joke that has been used on Tinder for a while now.
If that’s too long winded, try something shorter, like:

If you’re looking for more of these type of jokes, check out Nice One, Dad. The site features the “best” dad jokes found on the net, which might come in handy for your next match.
While, dad jokes are great. Mom jokes are also cool. And I’m not talking about the “Yo momma so…” whatever jokes. I’m talking about the more elusive mom jokes, which are a little bit more clever than those dad jokes.

Here’s a few good mom jokes that you can try for your next match, brought to you by Will Smith from the Milwaukee Brewers. Some of them are pretty good.
Pro tip: I recommend not telling the “Yo momma” jokes, as funny as they can be. Your match could find them offensive.
Knock Knock Jokes
Ah, a classic. Knock Knock jokes. You either love them or hate them. They’re easy to tell, everyone knows what to expect, and they can also be a great ice-breaker.
If you’re stuck on what to say, try this one.
me on Tinder
guy: Knock knock
me: who's there?
m: Kenya who?
g: kenya give me your number?
m: kenya not?
Sorry basag trip ako ?

Keep it Clean
It’s true. Dirty jokes can be great, but I’m not sure they’re something you want to attempt if you’re trying to get a response. You might want to save it for a little later, and then try again once you’ve figured out their humor.
You never know, you could get suspended from the social dating app, which I’m sure you don’t want to happen if you’re trying to get a date. Don’t let it happen to you. Don’t be “that guy.”

If none of these have worked, you can always go back to the classics. Some of these you may have heard of, some of these might be new, but trust me, they’ve been going around Tinder for quite some time.

Another classic Tinder joke.

And two more classic Tinder jokes for good measure.
