Good news! You’ve matched up with that hot girl or guy on Tinder. Now what?

You want to stand out. Specifically, you want to stand out in a good way. Most people will simply send a generic message, like “Hey! How’re you?”. But you really don’t want to be that boring. No, you want to show you’re a comedic genius with the best Tinder pick-up lines.

If you do it properly, you’ll get a positive response, and you’ll be a step closer to the coveted first date. Dating: it’s no joke, but these chat-up lines are.

Do Funny Pick-Up Lines Actually Work?

It’s easy to be sceptical, especially if you’ve experienced corny pick-up lines first-hand and are still cringing.

It’s often said that laughter is the best medicine. That’s because it releases endorphins into the brain, which make you feel relaxed and happy. They also strengthen your connection with someone. Dating is tough, and a funny icebreaker can smooth over any nerves and tension either of you have.

Think how positive you feel after having a good laugh, either in a group or one-to-one. Make your match’s day and prove yourself humorous and interesting. People turn to Tinder because they’re looking for love, or they’re looking for some fun. Why not go for both?

Embrace cheesy one-liners!

You might initially feel awkward coming out with some of the old classics, but they’re classics for a reason. They work. Sometimes. Let’s face it: most matches would prefer someone who can recite the old gags rather than Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18.

There’s a definite art to pulling off a good cheesy joke. But you won’t know if you’ve got “it” until you give it a shot. Tinder has introduced Reactions Tinder Reactions Help You Respond to Creeps Tinder Reactions Help You Respond to Creeps Tinder has launched what it calls Reactions. These are little animated responses you can send to someone on Tinder in lieu of actual words. Read More , so you’ll know how successful you are pretty swiftly.

10 Funny Tinder Pick-Up Lines to Try

If you’re looking for good Tinder pick-up lines, there are some tried-and-tested quips that could hold you in good stead.

Some you’ll have already heard. Some might be new. Either way, they’ve been used by matches since Tinder was founded in 2012. In fact, some go back further than that, to the days when dating sites such as Match.com ruled the roost.

1. Icebreaker

It’s good to acknowledge the fact that Tinder’s a bit odd. Because online dating is difficult for both sexes.

You’ve matched with a complete stranger. You admire each other’s relative symmetry. You might as well let them know you think the whole thing’s strange. Then you can move on and have a meaningful conversation.

2. Knock, Knock

Ah, a true classic. Despite the invention of the doorbell, “Knock Knock” jokes have never gone out of fashion, mainly because they were never in fashion.

Everyone knows what to expect from a “Knock Knock” gag. The real key is that they encourage a conversation. When someone comes a-calling, how can you resist saying, “Who’s there?”

3. “Dad” Jokes

You don’t have to be a guy to tell “Dad” jokes. These are old-school, cringe-inducing puns that are also remarkably popular.

If you’re looking for more, check out Nice One, Dad. The site features the best (using that term loosely) “Dad” jokes found online, which might come in handy for your next match.

4. Bodily Organs

Don’t be so disgusting.

In a world of crude gags, this one is as innocent as it is charming. Unless your date has just come out of surgery.

Don’t use this line if you’re a doctor.

5. Land of the Free

This one probably won’t work so well if you don’t live in the USA, but it’s worth a shot. Regional differences do apply: patriotism isn’t appreciated everywhere around the world, but most Americans will appreciate this one on some level. Pitch your line based on your geographic location.

6. Two-for-One

The joke on the right goes back to the Stone Age. The human race is still alive and well, so presumably it works.

7. Do Your Research

Tinder lets you put up a bio, so make good use of it. Be witty and honest in your own and pay attention to your match’s bio.

Check out their hobbies. What do their photos tell you about their personality? Express an interest in them, and do it in a clever way.

8. Show Self-Awareness

In most cases, this will come naturally. Very few people are actually full of confidence—it’s all a lie. Your match may appreciate you being self-deprecating.

Do it right and you’ll click with someone who is similarly humble-but-humorous.

9. Use Your Brains

It’s not all about using corny one-liners. You need clever Tinder pick-up lines, and that means engaging your own faculties.

Come up with something original. It doesn’t really matter if you use it again and again—as long as it seems to work.

10. Think Outside the Box

Yes, this goes against the very idea of standard chat-up lines, but it’ll also make you stand out. And that’s the aim of the game, right?

Be confident. Don’t be afraid to be ridiculous. Your opening gambit says a lot about you.

Tinder Pick-Up Lines: Keep It Clean

Dirty jokes can go one of two ways. So why risk it straight away? Save your filthy mind for later. First, gauge their sense of humor. Getting it wrong can mean you never get a response.

Go too far and you might even get suspended from the dating app. Or that person you’ve got an undeniable crush on might be put off for life.

    I know this is a really old article but I just now saw it..........

    When I was in the US Army back in the early 1980's one of my really good friends from the unit that I was stationed with used a line that I could never even consider, even now. I personally saw it work for him at least 3 times and he actually went home with the girl each time. I went along one of the times because the girl that he picked up had a couple of friends. What a great time. Sometimes I really miss those days even though I've been very happily married for 30 years now.

    After all that typing I just realized that I haven said the line he used!!!!

    "I wanna suck on your box till your head caves in"........... It worked for him. I was never brave enough to use it.

    Yup. We've seen a few of these before. You know what women really love? A big bowl of copy pasta.
