Everyone who uses Tinder knows that many of the conversations you will engage in are going to be the absolute worst. There are plenty of horror stories about what could go right and horribly wrong. And it all starts with the initial sentence one of you sends upon swiping right and learning it's a match.

Instead of using one of your typical (read: bad) pickup lines, opt for using one of these opening lines for Tinder from the list below — you'll be surprised at who might just swipe right.


In a crazy world like Tinder, with thousands of people looking for love, it's hard to get someone's attention, especially when that person most likely gets a lot of requests a day. That is why in order to capture someone's attention in that small window of opportunity, you need the perfect opening line.

You need to stand out from the rest of the losers trying to get their attention. In my opinion, men are usually the ones to initiate the conversation — and not well might I add. "DTF?" is not the way to a woman's heart. It may be to some, but keep in mind not everyone is looking for lust.

If you're not here for casual hookups and no callbacks, these Tinder pick up lines will certainly help you out.
