The 10 Best Tinder Pick-Up Lines That Actually Work

Joel Lee Updated 03-10-2018

Being single and ready to mingle can be tough, hence the growing prevalence of fast and convenient online dating. But if you want really fast, then you probably won’t find a better online dating platform than Tinder.


The problem with online dating sites is that they try to match suitable partners using mathematical formulas. These matches aren’t always local, which leaves you stuck in an online relationship or embarrassed when your friends find you using Tinder How to Use Tinder Without Facebook Friends Knowing Here's how to use Tinder without Facebook and how to use Tinder without your Facebook friends knowing. Read More . And if you’re just looking for something casual, ending such a relationship is never easy.

So, Tinder. It may have started as a “dating” app, but these days it’s all about hooking up. And as long as you don’t make these Tinder mistakes, you might even find success. But the real magic is in your first impression, and the following examples show what a striking opener can do for you.

Note: Since most pick-up lines are delivered male-to-female, this post assumes you’re 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 would be. But on Tinder, the rules are different. Since Tinder has become the standard for mobile hookups, pick-up lines are 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 makes the other person laugh.


Enter the pick-up line. Here are a few things to remember as you consider which pick-up line 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 lines trump canned lines. 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.

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.

    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: [Broken URL Removed] 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!
