The 3 best Hinge openers according to research

According to a Hinge experiment that tested the strength of 100 unique openers and ran 30 days, the next message was found the most successful of all:

  • Two truths and a lie; ready, set, go!

And it’s not that strange. The game Two Truths and a Lie is a great way of getting to know each other.

It naturally flows into a normal conversation. Because if your match surprises you with their answer, you want to uncover more of the truth!

Here are numbers 2 and 3 of the experiment:

  • Best discovery: Netflix or avocados?
  • Sunday priorities: exercise, sleep, or aggressive mimosas?

Notice a pattern? The top three best openers for Hinge are games. In other words: icebreakers that are entertaining PLUS easy to answer.

This combination is GOLD for writing an effective first text.

Important: Quickly letting you know I found the best opener EVER. Its psychologically irresistible to ignore. I made a video explaining how to use it and it's 'clickbait-principle' with screenshot examples. Check it out here.

10 best Hinge opening lines from team TextGod

Me and my team have been testing and collecting the best openers for years. These are the 10 best opening lines that work every time on Hinge:

  • How many fries can a friend take before you tell them to buy their own? Copy line
  • Your photos make you seem really open and outgoing. But I bet that you also have moments where you’re a shy little nerd. 😉 Copy line
  • You have to ban one forever: ice cream or chocolate. What do you choose? Copy line
  • We can make up any story about how we met. I like the idea of a meeting at a farmers market and we both reached for the last avocado. Copy line
  • If I say top 5 movies of all time, what is the first one that comes to mind? Copy line
  • Let’s dive right into the good stuff. If I could see your latest YouTube history, what would I see? Copy line
  • Let’s skip the small talk and discuss what matters. If you could have a superpower what would you choose? Copy line
  • Name your top 3 smells. GO! Copy line
  • Let’s find out what type of person you are hehe. How many bad pages will you read before you give up on a book? Copy line
  • This question always tells me a lot about a person. Would you, or would you not, eat pineapple on pizza? Copy line

12 Good opening lines from team Hinge

Hinge also came up with 12 opening lines that according to them have a great response rate. Here they are:

  • You’re having your portrait painted, what’s your backdrop?

It’s fun to answer because it’s wacky and she’s probably never thought about it before.

What’s more, she will want a backdrop that expresses her personality: mountains, landscape, brick wall, pizzeria, spaceship. The possibilities are endless.

Which is why it’s so interesting to see what your match picks.

  • Pain reliever personality: Advil, tequila, or complaining?

It’s a fun question, because the answers are surprising. And although you want to take her answer with a grain of salt, she’s telling you what she’s like: A Dull Diana, an Adventurous Anne, or a Negative Nelly.

  • Sunday priorities: exercise, sleep, or aggressive mimosas?

This question gives you little insight into her personality, but… It’s easy to answer for her, plus fun.

  • Choose one: sell seashells at the seashore, pick a peck of pickled peppers, or punch Donald Trump in the throat?

Here you’re playing with her expectations. If she reads two tongue twisters in a row, she’ll expect a third. But instead, she gets to punch a celebrity in the throat.

It’s not hilarious, but it’ll get a chuckle. And that’s all you need to get a reply.

  • Taylor Swift or Ariana Grande?

Easy to answer and people love to say what team they’re on.

  • Bears, beets, or Battlestar Galactica?

Honestly, this opener will be a hit or miss. It’s a direct quote from Jim when he pretends to be Dwight from the sitcom, Office US.

It will work great for people who get the reference. Others will just think you’re a little nutty.

  • What movie scared you the most when you were little?

It’s personal. She most likely has a very vivid memory of being scared to death by a movie. (Mine was The Exorcist followed by The Shining. For TextGod coach Jay it was Evil Dead 2.)

And it’s a question she may not have ever got.

  • What was the first CD you ever bought?

An original question. And pretty easy to answer. But unless she’s really into music, it won’t excite her. And when writing a good first text, excitement is key.

  • What 90s song would best describe you?

I like this question. Perhaps because I just wrote it.

(Hinge wrote: “What 90s song would you use as the title of your autobiography?” Such a mouthful and not as funny.)

And I like it because there are so many hilarious songs to choose from. A few that spring to mind: Creep, All That She Wants, Loser, and Barbie Girl.

  • Who’s your go-to Mario Kart character?

Even though your match may not play any games now. She most likely did when she was a kid. (I once dated a girl who was a complete League of Legends addict as a teenager.)

What makes this question even better, is that you instantly get a nickname! Peach, Toad, or Cumguzzler. Excuse me, I just heard one of them is not a Nintendo character. Apparently ‘peach’ is the name of a fruit. What a crazy world.

  • Choose: the ability to talk to animals or the ability to turn into any animal?

An opener that lends itself to lots of variations. The key to a good ‘choose one’-type game, is balance. The two options must be equally appealing.

  • Choose a dream job: puppy photographer or pizza critic?

Here’s another example of the ‘choose one’ game. And I think Hinge nailed it.

5 Best tips to write Hinge openers that work

1. Make it relevant

Whatever you do, make sure that your message is adding value.

For example: you could express something you like about their profile, or make a playful remark about their choice of beverage that makes them laugh.

“You’re drinking water melon white claw?? Shake my head. We all know that ruby grapefruit is the best.”

2. Be specific

Saying you like someone’s eyes is nice. But it’s also superficial and bland.

If you’re going to compliment something, make sure it’s something they haven’t heard before.

“Loved the pic of you floating in the pool with your headphones on. That’s one of my favorite things to do in the summer too.  What song were you obsessed with then?”

3. Stay true to yourself

Although it’s important to give value with your opener, don’t make it all about them. You want your first message to come from a place of authenticity.

If it’s no fun for you to send, then it’s not the right message.

So stick to comments and questions you enjoy. And use language that fits who you are.

4. Keep it  basic

To make a good first impression, it’s natural to want to create the most perfect message. But there really isn’t such a thing.

Your Hinge opener should be easy to understand and fun to receive. It doesn’t have to make them fall in love with you.

5. Make it playful

Your Hinge opener exists to break the ice. And there’s no better way to make someone feel comfortable than a bit of humor.

“Drinking from a glass cup in the pool?? I see you like to live dangerously ;)”

Four templates to create your own Hinge openers that work

1. Set up your cheesy icebreakers

If you’re a fan of cheesy openers, but don’t get much success, here’s why.

Pick-up lines rarely work.

They’re usually crass and/or needy. Let me show you a few.

  • Somebody call the cops, because it’s illegal to look that good!
  • I must be a snowflake, because I’ve fallen for you.
  • I know you’re busy today, but can you add me to your to-do list?

Do you notice how these lines totally ignore who she is as a person? Plus, they also force her to make a choice: Do I like him already or not?

And because she has almost nothing to base her decision on except your profile, she’ll almost always reject you.

Holy Tip:

Do you find yourself getting ignored too often? Or even worse… getting unmatched? Your conversations are probably too boring!

But that’ll be a thing of the past with my 10 Texts That Always Work. You’ll get:

– Fun answers to boring questions
– Cut and paste teases that’ll crack her up and make you seem more attractive
– A smooth way to ask her out
– And more

Grab the 10 Texts here for FREE.

But there is a way to make cheesy pick-up lines work.

And that’s to LEAD IN the opener. What does that mean? Simple.

Before you type out your bad line and hit send, ask her if she likes cheesy pick-up lines. Like my boy, Andrew.

Don’t you just love it when a plan comes together?

Why did asking make such a big difference? Because she sees that you’re not a testosterone-filled caveman who only thinks with his meat scepter. Instead, you’re a testosterone filled beast with manners.

And that’s what all women want. Gentleman in the streets, and a Chad in the sheets. Next, we take it up a notch.

2. Understand her point of view

Learn the four steps that can get you laid through Hinge TONIGHT. Some girls have names that easily lend themselves to cheesy openers. Girls called Faith, Alexa, Annie, Jane and Destiny.

Here are the icebreakers that spring to mind:

  • I think I need a little Faith in my life.
  • Alexa play Despacito.
  • Annie, are you okay?
  • You Jane, me Tarzan.
  • It was our Destiny to swipe each other right.

Pretty funny, right? But there’s a problem. You’re not the only one that sees the pick-up line. Even worse, every guy is probably blowing up her inbox with the same lines. So you have to be different. But how?

Understand what she’s likely to read on Hinge all day.

I already gave you a peek at her inbox above. But you want to go even deeper.

Quite a lot of guys already understand that she gets harassed by the same lines.

So they show understanding by saying:

I bet you get pick up lines using your name, ALL. THE. TIME.

And that’s not bad. But it’s only the start. To really stand out from the herd, you want to wow her with a line that she hasn’t heard before. Like this clever guy.

Gotta love self-deprecating humor.

Understanding is only one of the four steps to get laid. For the other three, watch my four-minute video:

3. Invent your own game

There are two things that we love at team TextGod.

My Little Pony. And the improvisational opener.

Let me give you an example.

Name a historical period and I’ll turn it into a pickup line

Note: you can replace ‘historical period’ with any subject: food, animals, culture, and so on.

A great game. And the ladies wuv it.

Zing! Nailed it.

Although my history bro has got mad comedy chops, he could use some help with the ladies.

Why do I say that? Because she’s using him as a toy. She keeps demanding pick-up lines and he just rolls with it.

But you’re not on Hinge to be her dancing monkey. You’re on Hinge to meet a girl who’s cool enough to go out with you. So I would have liked to see this:

Name a historical event and I’ll give you a pick-up line


I’ve got something to fill your oven

The signing of the Magna Carta

Not so fast, m’lady. It’s your turn to entertain me with a line

The French Revolution

Do you feel the difference?

The screenshot showed a man who put her on a pedestal.

But in my example you’re on equal footing.

Holy Tip:

If you’re new to writing your own material, the improv opener can be difficult.

Are you having trouble creating a good line? Google is your friend. Simply write ‘[subject of choice] pick up lines’ into Google and hit search.

Here’s one I found on the French Revolution:

Are you the Reign of Terror? Because I’m losing my head over you

Another one on the Iron Curtain:

Not even the Berlin Wall could keep me from you, babe

And the last one on the Renaissance:

You are the Renaissance to my Dark Ages, and you light up my world

Now for the final and most dangerous type of Hinge opener.

4. Invite her to a roast

How to play with fire and warm her heart.

If you like comedy, you are probably already familiar with roasts. If not, let me explain what a roast is. It’s basically like watching a YouTube comment section in person. So when you roast your match, you make her the butt of a joke.

But you don’t just kick in the door with a joke. You lead it in, like so:

The lady could spit fire, but not take it.

As you can see from the example, roasting her can backfire. But what makes the roast opener so powerful, is that it triggers a lot of emotions.

Mostly negative, but that’s not a bad thing. Because once you get her to laugh, all that emotion changes to positivity in an instant. Making her suddenly like you, A LOT.

What’s more, she’s only used to friends bashing her. So by giving her a good burn, you may instantly build a strong connection. Or instantly turn into a grade-A douche.

Holy Tip:

If you like a girl with a sense of humor, try adding ‘Roast me’ to your dating profile.

That way you won’t only get better matches, but you’ll get girls opening you.

You better have thick skin though.

Because girls can be BRUTAL.

You now have a fuark ton of openers and are almost guaranteed a reply.

But that’s only the start.

Now you want to continue the conversation and ask her out.

If that’s something you struggle with, I got exactly what you need:
