There are two categories of ‘the best Tinder lines’. One: the funniest, most ridiculous pickup lines you can fathom, and two: the ones most likely to get you laid. The first category is overflowing with some phenomenal examples (read below), but for successfully landing a date, it takes some creativity and a little bit of a personal approach.
What you should know, is that the bog standard, one-size fit all Tinder lines are unlikely to get you anywhere – but don’t panic we’ve supplied some tips to create some of the best Tinder lines that will.
Everything you need to know about the ridiculous
Far from guaranteed to whet your whistle, as it were, these lines will definitely get a laugh from your match, and maybe that’s all you need to get things going!
‘It’s a good thing I’m wearing gloves, because you look too hot to handle’
A classic – but always a crowd pleaser; in all honesty, I’ll be greatly surprised if this kind of line gets you any further than a sharp reply and a closed conversation – but it’s worth it for the LULZ.
‘Do you have a map handy? I keep getting lost in your gaze’
This one arguably crosses right into the creepier side of things, but still seems to surface as one of the best Tinder lines floating around today. It’s actually not so bad, as far as the more offhand beginning lines go, but it takes some brass balls to hit out with something as cheesy as that.
‘You’re so gorgeous that I’ve forgotten my pickup line…’
Depending on the girl in question (she might have heard this about ten times that day) this might be a goer. It’s weirdly charming in its own way and stays away from some of the more over the top examples (‘As long as I have a face, you’ll always have a place to sit’) – what have you go to lose?
Everything you need to know about the true best Tinder lines
Generally speaking, though, the real best lines you can pull out in your Tinder career will be well thought out, personalised messages. A general line like the ones above, the others of their kind, might get you a chuckle, but often not much more.
For really sweeping your match off her feet, try and anchor your pickup line around something specific in her profile, her photo or her name. It’ll show a degree of interest and make it seem like you aren’t just scrolling through a list of chicks hitting them with the same message and hoping one will land (even if that is exactly what you’re doing). A good method is to start off on a strong, confident footing and keep her interested by asking her questions about her plans and herself; maybe even tell her that you’re intentionally avoiding some of the god awful lines out there – honesty is still a decent policy, even if it’s not really honest…
