35 Tinder Pick Up Lines so Bad That They Succeeded

What if I told you there are bad Tinder pick up lines that actually work?

Or, at the very least… they’ll give you a good ol’ chuckle.

Either way, you’ve found the pot of shi… uh… gold.

Because we’ll be looking at the very worst Tinder has to offer, by examining the Instagram account Tinder Nightmares.

When you look at the account, most posts consist of guys desperately opening women with terrible chat up lines like “I want to sit on your face”. Girls then give a witty reply, and submit the screenshot to be posted on Tinder Nightmares.

But… some of the flirty texts are so bad that they actually get a response, and get the conversation going. Sometimes you can even learn from them.

Caution:

Copy-paste these bad texts at your own risk.

You have been warned…

By the way, do you sometimes get stuck in online conversations? Very frustrating... but there is a simple solution. I created a bonus named The 10 Texts That Always Work, including my favorite text to send when I have gotten her number, an easy message to get her out on a date, and some witty lines to get the conversation going. Download it, it's completely free and easy to use.

#1 Worst typo in Tinder history

Sometimes it’s funny to intentionally misspell a word, to give your conversation a very innocent sexual undertone.

In this case I’m not sure if you want to copy-paste the approach, but the line does end up going pretty well:

This. This is not a good typo

A post shared by Unspirational (@tindernightmares) on

Great recovery after such an awful start!

#2 Somehow, this is pretty hot

Seems legit.

I hope they ended up on a Tinder date.

This is actually a turn on

#3 Getting her number in 2 messages

I gotta admit, this one is pretty smooth.

It might not work often, but I have seen way worse chat up lines than this one:

Not bad, Spencer. Not bad

#4 Movie night opener

Have you ever seen those posts on Facebook like “describe your dating life with a movie title”?

Why not use it as a Tinder opener:

This is very very very clever

It’s funny, because we actually came up with a better version of this pick up line.

#5 Netflix ‘n Chill 1.0

This one is just plain bad.

(But in the next picture, I’ll show a BETTER way to use this line!)

Just using a BIT more creativity goes a long way guys:

All of this. Yes to all of this

A post shared by Unspirational (@tindernightmares) on

Why not some traditional TV and never leave me?

I’ll see myself out.

#7 Bad pick up line for girls

I think this one works best when a girl tries it. Since you call the other person “Earl Grey”.

Corny lines can work when they are actually original.

Especially when your Tinder match hasn’t heard them before!

Actually not bad

A post shared by Unspirational (@tindernightmares) on

#8 Needy… yet, it works?

One of the main turn offs for ANYONE, is neediness.

It’s repulsive to have someone be very clingy, especially when you’ve never met each other before.

Somehow this guy still gets a reply:

Have a Fucking cup of tea and relax, bro

A post shared by Unspirational (@tindernightmares) on

I’ll go the the following screenshot then oooookkk.

#9 Freaky opening text

I love sarcasm.

But it just doesn’t work so well on Tinder. It’s actually one of my 19 Texting Rules for Guys.

You have to understand that there’s more to a sarcastic douche. If you dig deeper, you’ll find that there’s more layers behind the sarcasm.

You peel them off like an onion, and discover that every layer consists of more of the exact same stuff.

Until you reach the core and start crying.

#10 This reminds me of a Dutch proverb

There is a saying in Dutch that “for every jar, there’s a lid”.

I guess these two seem to fit.

Holy Tip:

Don’t begin the conversation with lines about your male genital.

There are much better ways to begin a conversation on Tinder.

#11 Worst opener that is actually cute

If this isn’t love on first swipe, I don’t know what is.

This is love

#12 Back to plain bad pick up lines

At least he admits it.

View this post on Instagram

Is that an offer??

A post shared by Unspirational (@tindernightmares) on

I do appreciate this humor. Assuming it’s meant as a joke.

On the other hand… never call yourself funny.

Mostly unfunny people and insecure people call themselves all sorts of positive things when nobody asked for it.

#13 Don’t be too cool for school

Pay attention kids.

Because you might act like a fool.

It was going so well…

Holy Tip:

Playful openers might work online.

But there is one psychological principle that always gets a reaction.

Because it teases her curiosity so much, she just HAVE to react.

That is the power of clickbait.

The Clickbait Opener is only available for TextGod followers.

You can get the secret download here. For free.

#14 Honestly bad

When you use a bad pick up line, you will often seem like a douche.

You will seem like you’re hiding your vulnerability behind dumb lines.

Trying to get laid through Tinder while putting zero effort into the conversation.

This guy’s response to the rejection isn’t terribly, so he had a fair chance at getting a text back.

Still, it’s easy to interpret his comeback as a really low self-esteem kinda line.

Well, at least he’s honest

A post shared by Unspirational (@tindernightmares) on

#15 Her response might be ironic

Still pretty funny, it could work sometimes.

Holy Tip:

As a professional Tinder coach, I often get the request to hand out some lines that actually DO work.

Over time I’ve gotten this request so often, that I compiled some of my best texts into one simple eBook.
