Creating Good Openers For Tinder

Creating a good dating app opener is easier than it seems, as long as you follow a few basic rules. The best Tinder openers are those that are specific and custom-made for your match to show that you made extra effort.

The best openers are conversation starters – they make the other person want to respond and see what more you have to say. Next, a good follow-up will make them want to continue talking to you.

Also keep in mind that it’s not the same if you’re messaging someone for a one-night stand or if you’re looking to date. When it’s a hookup that you’re both after, you don’t need to tell each other your life stories – just get to the point.

Here’s how to create your own openers.

DOs

1. Take a close look at their Tinder profile.

Seeing what your match has to say, their pictures, and how they chose to present themselves will give you a ton of ideas on how to approach them.

2. Be funny.

Humor has the greatest success rate in getting your match’s attention. See step one to figure out what their sense of humor is and the best kind of jokes to use. Some people like intellectual humor, and others like dad jokes. Their profile will point you in the right direction.

3. Show interest.

Don’t open with “Hi.” If you do that, your chances of getting a response are seriously low because they make your match have to think of something to say when it was you who made the first move.

Instead, ask them about something that made you curious about their profile to spark conversation. Any likes, dislikes, hobbies – you don’t need an icebreaker template. You just need to pay some attention. If you share any interests, even better: it’s something you can talk about to bring you closer.

4. Be clear about what you’re looking for.

If you’re looking for a hookup, be open about it. Lots of people are on Tinder just for that reason, so you won’t lose anything if your match isn’t one of them – the next one will be.

If you’re looking for a relationship, let the other person know so everyone knows what they’re in for.

5. Send a message that’s easy to respond to.

Make it fun, and don’t make them think. No one wants to get into a deep conversation with someone they’re just trying to figure out.

DON’Ts

Don’t be creepy. No romantic paragraphs and no sex puns. Avoid coming on too strong.

• Don’t get too sexual at first, even if you’re both looking for hookups. Respect goes a long way.

• Don’t use weird humor. You never know how someone will respond to it.

Don’t keep messaging people if they don’t respond. They’ve seen your message, and if you try to make them reply, you’ll just seem annoying and desperate.

• Don’t pretend to be someone else. Fake pictures and a fake personality get discovered easily.

Don’t be mean. This should be a no-brainer, but some people think it gives them an edge.
