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.
What to do before you send your first GIF
Look, GIFs are great and can be stupidly effective at making her laugh.
But it’s not all rainbows and sunshine.
GIFs can also seriously turn her off.
Even if you’re using the best GIFs you can send on Tinder.
Because spammings GIFs can make you seem like a 10-year-old who found mom’s hidden candy jar and ate two fistfuls of starburst.
Not exactly what a woman is looking for.
So before you send your first GIF, know this:
Use GIFs sparingly.
As a rule of thumb, I recommend no more than 1 GIF every 10 texts.
With that out the way, we can get into it.
The best Opener GIFs
These are the ones you want to send when you can’t come up with a personalized opener.
Don’t know what a personalized opener is?
It’s a message tailor-made especially for your new Tinder match. Which requires quite a bit of finesse. If you want to know how to write one, check out my article on the 33+ Best First Tinder Messages
I really recommend you learn how to send these Personalized Openers, because GIFs are hit and miss when it comes to starting a Tinder convo.
But as GIFs go, the next ones are likely the most effective.
IMPORTANT: As of now these GIFs are not trending. That means they’re not being used by everyone and are actually a bit rare in the world of Tinder.
That’s a good thing.
But once enough people start reading my article, these GIFs may become popular and lose their power.
So use them while you still can, or learn how to write a personalized opener.
Keywords: flirting, slide, dms, hey girl
#2: Hay Jimmy Fallon
Keywords: hay, jimmy fallon
#3: Hey girl
Keywords: hey girl, skating
After you sent one of these Tinder GIFs, you’re going to send normal texts for a while.
And you may eventually find yourself in a situation that asks for a GIF.
GIFs for when she tells you what to do
Some girls like to be a little bossy and may jokingly say stuff like:
If you did nothing wrong and she’s clearly kidding, it’s a good move to stand your ground.
In fact, you shouldn’t see it as ‘standing your ground’. Because what you’re actually doing is flirting.
After all, her telling you off is really a tease.
In this scenario, you can go with one of three playful GIFs.
#4: Dobby has no master
Dobby has no master. Excellent scene and perfectly over the top for this scenario. In case you don’t remember, Dobby said this after he stood up to the nasty death eaters.
And now you’re standing up to a cute girl from Tinder. You’re such a gentleman.
Keywords: harry potter, elf, dobby, free
#5: Baby eye glasses
If you’re feeling more like a diva, here’s little Miss Baby peering over her glasses as if to say, “Excuse me?” Clearly your Tinder match is nothing more to you than a blip on your radar.
Keywords: sunglasses, excuse me, baby
#6: No thank you
And if you’re feeling more sassy, go with this GIF.
Keywords: sassy, no thanks, boo boo
Up next, a different scenario…
Tinder GIFS for when she gives you a challenge
If she’s really feeling herself, she’ll eventually throw you a challenge.
How would you reply to this?
With nothing but confidence I hope!
Here are some GIFs you can go with:
#7: Bring it on
Keywords: bring it on, emperors new groove
Now for my personal favorite…
#8: I’ll whoop your ass
Show no mercy, my friend.
Keywords: whoop your ass
Now for the next scenario…
Reaction GIFs for when she teases you
If you’re even half-good at texting, girls should tease you all the time.
Do you never find yourself being teased?
I recommend you read this article on 9 Tips How To Build Rapport Over Text.
Anyway, suppose you told her an embarrassing story about how you dove head-first into a tree on a ski trip and she calls you…
What a b—eautiful tease.
What do you do?
#9: Play dumb and take it as a compliment:
Keywords: stop it, playful, nikki glaser
Or, depending on what the situation calls for, you can go the opposite route and…
Keywords: crying, ice cream, emma stone
Talking about teasing over text, suppose she…
GIFs for when she says something you don’t agree with:
Maybe you absolutely adore sushi and so you tell her:
How do you respond?
You tease her!
One way is to revert back to your child-self and…
#11: Mock her
Keywords: ross, friends, mocking
Another option is…
#12: Say you don’t love her anymore:
Keywords: erin, breaking up, office
An equally funny reply would be to…
#13: Fire her
Keywords: friends, lisa kudrow, phoebe, fired
Now for a totally different scenario.
#14: When she asks you a question:
If you’re always answering questions truthfully, you’re losing out on opportunities to create attraction.
Did that jump to conclusion make your head spin?
Let me explain.
We’re all attracted to people who are playful. Of course there are varying degrees of playfulness that we’re looking for, but I think we can all agree that we don’t like people who are…
And what is someone who always answers questions truthfully?
That’s right, boring.
So next time she asks you a Yes/No question, be playful and tell her…
Keywords: maybe, barack obama, classified
On the topic of questions, here’s something that’ll make your Tinder convos MUCH better.
Stop asking Yes/No questions.
As it implies, those questions lead to one-word answers.
Not exactly stimulating.
Now for one of the most dreaded moments of all…
GIFs for when she doesn’t respond
One of the worst things about texting is that…
Sometimes she won’t respond.
Which can send you into a panic and have you blowing up her phone with needy messages.
Messages that scare her away… forever.
So let’s not do that.
Instead, figure out why she didn’t respond.
In this case, I’m going to give you a good GIF for two scenarios:
- The conversation went well and she forgot to reply or is busy
- You said something she didn’t like and she didn’t feel like answering
Let’s start with the scenario where you blundered.
Keywords: cringe, yuck, wince, kristen bell
Want to know what to say instead of bla bla bla? Here’s 10 Things To Say When You Don’t Know What To Talk About.
Now for the best scenario: you were having a good conversation but she didn’t reply.
In that case, I have two possible double texts for you.
#18: When you say something obviously flirty
Keywords: wink, steve brule
#19: Let me in
Keywords: conan obrien, let me in
To be clear, only send #18 and #19 if the convo was going well and she probably forgot to reply.
If you send these two GIFs when the convo was going poorly, you’ll likely scare her off.
Now for the best GIF to send on Tinder when…
#19: When she doesn’t get your joke
One of the worst feelings is when someone doesn’t get your joke.
That said, I’ve never gone to a Nickelback concert.
Anyway, it’ll sometimes happen when your Tinder match doesn’t see the funny.
Whenever a joke goes over her head, send her this…
Keywords: Joke, miss, star trek
It’s a lovely tease that’ll be sure to make her blow some air out of her nose.
When she gives you a compliment
If you’ve got a bangin’ profile, you’ll no doubt get the occasional compliment.
Don’t have a bangin’ profile?
Then we have to get you one. So here’s an article with 7 Tinder profile tips to triple your matches.

It shows you exactly what your profile’s weaknesses are and how to fix them.
Now that you’ve got some compliments, we’ve got to find you some GIFs.
In fact, you want the best Tinder GIFs to send.
And as far as I’m concerned it’s one of these two.
Keywords: yeah, I know, fabulous
This one, I’ll send when she compliments me on something superficial. Like my smile.
But if she really blows me away with something special that makes me all tingly inside?
I’ll send her this.
#21: Goofy blush
Keywords: goofy, blush, disney
Now for another scenario…
Flirty GIFs when you want to flirt
If you’re on Tinder, this is what you want to be doing…
Triggering all sorts of emotions that no other man on Tinder can.
Seriously, if you just do a little flirting you will become her #1 Tinder match. And she will be hunting you down for a date.
The best part?
Flirting isn’t all that hard. Especially if you use GIFs.
Suppose she texts you something totally devoid of flirtiness:
Then you can turn it flirty by misinterpreting her text and sending…
#22: Eyebrow raise
Keywords: milhouse, simpsons, eyebrow raise
It does require a little of brainpower on your part, so how about something even easier:
Suppose she says the most bland and boring thing on the planet:
What would be an awesome flirty response?
#23: That’s HOT
Keywords: that’s hot, paris hilton
It makes absolutely no sense.
But it’s still flirty, playful and fun.
Suppose the convo is getting a bit boring and it’s in serious need of some flirting, go with the next gif.
#24: Are you flirting with me?
Keywords: are you flirting with me, ncis
Like the GIF from earlier, it makes no sense!
But it gets the convo where you want it to be. And that’s all that matters.
We just discussed instances where you start flirting with her.
But what if she goes first and…
When she starts flirting with you
If you’re following the texting principles I preach, you’ll often find yourself in a position where girls are flirting with you.
If that’s not already the case, here’s a quick video to level up your text game:
With all this priceless texting info in your arsenal, girls from Tinder will definitely be flirting with you!
How will you reply?
Suppose she goes:
What would you reply?
#25: In your dreams
Keywords: in your dreams, melinda, vonetta mcgee
Most guys would love it if a girl started fantasizing about going on a date. And instantly try to capitalize on the opportunity.
But not you.
You know how to flirt.
Now, you obviously don’t want to shoot down every date attempt of hers.
Eventually you do want to meet.
So don’t flirt forever. Only until you’ve built up enough rapport and attraction.
#26: Show her you’re excited
Keywords: boner, transformer
The implication is clear.
But because it’s a GIF from a children’s cartoon, it loses much of its adult context and won’t set off any ‘creeper’ alarms.
#27: She rejects your date proposal or number exchange
No matter how good you are at flirting and texting, she will eventually reject you.
And largely out of your hands.
After all, you don’t know what kind of experiences she’s had with men in the past.
So even if she likes you, she may be a bit more reluctant to meet up.
Suppose you’ve been texting back and forth and you think the time is right to exchange numbers.
So you send her this:
What would be a playful and non-butthurt reply?
Keywords: nooo, screaming, jane the virgin
From here change topics and continue to rapport over text until she’s ready.
Now for the last gif that’ll save you from the most painful situations possible…
#29: You didn’t hear back after the date
Ever sent a text after a first date and never got an answer?
This GIF is the answer to all your troubles.
Now, this is not something you want to send right after the date.
You want to use this GIF after she ignores your initial text.
Imagine you just came back from a first date and sent her:
And after waiting two days, she still hasn’t answered your text.
What type of GIF could possibly trigger her to answer back?
#30: Just letting you know I’m totally fine
Keywords: wine, drink, amy
Although the GIF implies that you’re totally NOT fine, the fact you’re cracking jokes shows you’re in a good mood.
So after she laughs at your joke, she’ll highly likely reply and tell her what’s on her mind.
Anyway, today we talked a bunch about the best GIF to send on Tinder.
Which may give the idea that you want to be sending a LOT of GIFs. Unless you remember the first thing I wrote…
Use GIFs sparingly.
Most of the time you want to be relying on words.
To help you out and give you the best possible collection of words, I have something for you.
Which is exactly as it sounds.
Plus, I have for you the best ice breaker that always gets a reaction.
