tinder online-dating icebreakers

 

Online dating is a world as fascinating as it is difficult. Men see it as a game of numbers and women see it as a gigantic ocean where all they have to do is to pull on the fish net and choose the lucky one they will give their attention to.
After swiping right on an unbelievably ginormous number of people you wait patiently to be liked back and match with someone and then...



It’s a match!

You did it! You finally got a match! Don’t fudge it up now! Send something funny and original to your match to wow them. Of course cringey pick-up lines and cheesy icebreakers are out of the question. Starting a conversation with “Hey! How are you doing?” is boring and doesn’t make you stand out from the crowd. Show that you’re curious and interested in them - you could ask something about their bio or reply to one of the prompts on their profile (if you’re using Hinge). If you’re not a creative person or you just don’t want to waste your time thinking about something creative and original, Tinder has worked on a project you might find interesting. The infamous dating app released 21 questions based on Arthur Aron’s 36 Questions to Fall in Love to #VibeCheck your match and make sure you have a wide plethora of topics to discuss. Then, 'If they are roses they will bloom, if they are spikes they will sting'.
