Louis - The TextGod
Yo, Louis here. 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.

#1: The WORST mistake you can make after “Hey”

The WORST thing you can do after she sends the most lazy text on Earth is…


Rather than take charge, you smack her nonsense right back.

Take that!

2 y’s show too much interest, duh.

You can also let your match stew in her own unoriginality.

And watch your match expire.

Do you REALLY want to show your hate for her lazy text?

Then wait before she ALMOST leaves your ‘Beehive’ and hit Extend.

That will teach her to put in more effort!

Except that it doesn’t.

All the above only leads to a candlelit evening with a pump of lotion and Pornhub.

IMPORTANT: “Hey” is not always a sign of disinterest, she may simply not know what else to say.

RIP spelling.

Also keep in mind that she has a window of 24 hours before she loses you as a match.

Pressured by time, she may fire off a ‘Hey’ to keep the connection alive.

So don’t be too quick to think she’s a low-effort type of gal.

Instead, draw her out with a fun text and see what she’s really like.

#2: Why most Bumble conversations go NOWHERE

Most guys suck at texting because they don’t know the two most important goals of online dating.

  1. Infiltrate the female ranks
  2. Steal their fortune telling cootie catcher

The world’s most sophisticated fortune telling machine.

If you prefer to get laid, however, the Bumble dating goals change into:

  • Getting a feel for her personality.
  • Planning the date.

While some men intuitively know what aims to chase, they never reach the dating objectives.


Because of Bumble’s unique hurdle: the woman texts first.

The problem with her taking the initiative, is that most men follow her lead.

Which leads to nowhere.


Hey, what are you up to?

I’m going to a show tonight with friends

Nice. That sounds fun!

Although sometimes friendly conversation leads to anger.

When she just drank a tall glass of crazy.

Chit-chat usually moves the conversation forward, but it never achieves any goals.

In the beginning, asking her out is close to impossible, so that only leaves you with one of the two options:

Becoming familiar with her.

There are a million ways to get a read on her.

Let’s start with the first…

#3: Reply to her “Hey” by slamming on the breaks

The next technique solves two of your problems at once.

  • How to reply to her “Hey”.
  • And how to seem more masculine.

Plus, it’s super easy to do:

Call out the “Hey”.

Let me show what that looks like.

1. Tease


OMG! I can’t believe it. I feel the same way. We must be soulmates



Wow! That’s the most beautiful thing anyone has ever said to me



I hope I’m not moving too fast, but your word stirred my heart like no other. I want you to meet my parents

The trick of misinterpretation is simple.

You pretend that she sent you the most romantic message of all time.

And reply as if she swept you off your feet.

Most women respond well to the romance skit.

But some girls see your playful tease as mocking her and get offended.

My advice if she gets butthurt?

Run for it.

Because the PC police is coming for you.

When she can’t take a joke.

If you want to avoid coming across as a sarcastic a-hole, go with the next option.

2. Role reversal


Whoa, whoa! Calm down, m’lady. I’m not that kind of boy. I’m a gentleman.



I bet you say that to all the guys, player




Stop objectifying me, miss. I have feelings too

In my experience, role reversal works best.

It shows humor and that you don’t take yourself too seriously.

Plus, if she goes along with your game, the conversation can quickly turn muy caliente.

#4: My favorite response to “Hey” on Bumble

My favorite response to “Hey” is dead simple:

Then I report her for abuse.

Would not recommend if you’re low on matches.

In that case, go with my second favorite response:

Ignore her “Hey”.

Aaand send her a first text like you would on Tinder.

Problem solved.

Just kidding.

I’ll give you all kinds of copy pasta openers.

As well as some guidelines, so you can create your own.

Even though my lines work, coming up with your own material is important.


Because if you get a date with your match by parroting my witty lines, she’s expecting YOU to show up with MY personality. And MY peñus.

And if your personality is very different from mine, she won’t feel any sparks.

And she won’t go on a second date.


But it’s no problem!

Because if you keep reading, you’ll learn how to write your own material.

Let’s get started.

Starting with…

#5: Knock knock jokes

Get stealable and high-responsive openers PLUS the magic that makes them great.

Any good opener always checks at least two boxes.

Which reminds me of a girl I dated who worked at Amazon. She checked ALL the boxes.

*ba dum tss*

A good opener always shares two ingredients:

  1. It’s easy to reply to
  2. It’s out of the ordinary and FUN

(Yes, that’s two and I don’t care what you think!)

Knock-knock jokes fit the criteria.

Before you get the good, here is the bad:

Holy Tip: when she asks if you’re an electrician, say “Yes.”

Caution: All knock-knock jokes, even the good ones, are very childish.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Joke numero Juan

Knock, knock

Who’s there?


Gestapo who?


It’s not my own. Which makes it even more powerful.

The joke is from Office US. And if she recognizes the joke, you know you’ve got a good one.

Joke numero dos

Knock, knock

Who’s there?


Europe who?

No, you’re a poo!

My six-year-old niece thinks it’s hilarious.

I agree.

Joke numero tres

Knock, knock

Who’s there?


To who?

To WHOM. You pleb

Joke numero cuatro

Knock, knock

Who’s there?


9/11 who?


With the knock-knock jokes out of the way, onto more Bumble conversation starters.

#6: Would you rather

The Would-you-rather-formula is known, but it easily backfires and gets you ignored.

*slow clap*

I commend this guy for keeping it classy.

For those who don’t know, ‘Would you rather’ is a simple game.

You pose a dilemma in the form of a question starting with ‘Would you rather’.

And invent two options.

The person who answers has to pick one of the two.

Answering ‘neither’ or ‘both’ is against the rules and should be met with punishment.

Let the games begin!

Would you rather date a guy with a huge dong, but no arms and legs, or a guy with arms and legs but a small sling schlong?

There are several reasons why I like this dilemma:

  1. You find out if she likes it big (some girls prefer average or tongue action)
  2. She’s making a decision about YOU, not some random guy
  3. It drives the conversation toward the sexual and exciting
  4. And oh yeah, you also find out if she like arms and legs

Would you rather be married to a 10 with a bad personality or a 6 with an amazing personality?

A favorite of mine.

Because when she goes for the 6, she is getting trashed.

J/K. I’m not hot enough to be boring and bitter. So I’m grateful for the cute ladies who I can seduce with my bad jokes and dad personality.

Here are 7 more dilemmas.

Would you rather have one nipple or two belly buttons?

Would you rather have your dream job or find your true love?

Would you rather sleep with someone who calls out his own name, or quietly whispers “Heil Hitler” when he climaxes?

Would you rather lose all of your teeth or all of your hair?

Would you rather get your paycheck in pennies, or never be able to use cash again?

Would you rather never be able to do a good smokey eye or never be able to do a good contour?

Would you rather find a book that predicts the future, or have a book that explains everything from the past we don’t already know?

The above questions all have different flavors.

But the sex WYD is obviously the most polarizing.

If you want to filter out prude girls, that’s your go-to.

Here’s a hypothetical:

What if her opener was fun?

Even better:

What if you could get her to write a fun icebreaker?

#7: How to get a better text than “Hey”

Use the next technique and her first text will be way more interesting than “Hey”.

The majority of guys have bios that knock you out faster than chugging a bottle of NyQuil.

Guys aren’t boring because they can’t be fun, but because they don’t understand the power of the bio.

Before we get into the magic of a good bio, let me tell you a secret:

Just like men, women have trouble writing a good first text.

And like you, most girls turn to photos and bios for inspiration.

Imagine she sees this:

Can you blame her for being stumped?

Probably everyone on the planet shares the same two opinions.

Is there anyone who thinks the opposite: “I love the old, mundane and boring. All I want is misery and sadness?”

Alex has a more personal opinion in the third line and fourth line, but that doesn’t help her come up with an opener.

Imagine if YOUR bio DID assist her!

Instead of brooding on an icebreaker like it’s a game of Sudoku, she takes one glance at your about me description and voilà.

She strikes gold.

And sends you the exact text that you were hoping for.

Like this guy:

His profile read: “Ask me about my hidden talent.”

How do you get your ideal text?

Or get the details for your favorite opener inside my 6-minute YouTube video:

Now more on what to say after she says “Hey”.

#8: How to get her obsessed with your texts

Some lines are just better than others. And those golden lines are waiting for you in this tip.

With the right opener, every fiber in her body will hunger for more.

Read on and get the text that will get her more hooked on your texts than fish on a line.

Warning: the technique is so simple it’s embarrassing.

Brace yourself, because here it comes…


And it’s stupidly effective.

Could you feel yourself darting down the page to find the golden line?

That’s due to clickbait. The first three lines of this tip are stuffed full of it.

Put simply, clickbait creates an itch that must be scratched.

And when used on Bumble, she has to rely on YOU to do the scratching.

So how do you get her obsessed by a nugget of information that only you have?

With the next shamefully simply text:

Hey [name], do you know what’s interesting about your photos?

Not entirely sure this is pure magic?

Firstly, good on you for being skeptical, bro.

I applaud your scientific mind.

But your distrust is misplaced.

Let me point out just how interested she is:

  1. She sends three texts.
  2. She extends her “No” to “Nooo”.
  3. She has a chuckle and writes “haha”
  4. And she even checked out her photos to see if anything was wrong!

She CRAVES the answer.

She NEEDS her itch scratched. And as I said earlier, it’s only us that can do the scratching.

My clickbait opener doesn’t just end there.

I also have two follow-up lines that continue the conversation and reel her in further.

When you open 6 matches at the same time.

But those are too valuable to reveal in this article.

You can find my 2 follow-up lines PLUS 7 screenshot examples by clicking this link.

Use the power of clickbait wisely, brochacho.

#9: Replace smalltalk with funtalk

Learn how to keep the conversation fun while making her excited for the date.

Women are done with stale chit chat.

What do you do for work?

What do you do for fun?

How does jet fuel melt steel beams?

The last question is clearly a joke, but you don’t need three examples to understand what’s boring.

So what do you say when you get past “Hey”?


Shoutouts to the 90s.

Anyway, this tip gives you ideas on how to get chummy, without being boring like the rest.

Actually, you’re going to get a series of questions of the FUN variety that you can directly copy and paste.

Note: These questions also work in person on a date.

Prepare your anus yourself:

What would you like more people to know about you?

What’s the first thing you noticed about me?

What outfit do you wear if you want to look sexy?

If you could pick a movie for us to watch, what would you choose?

Would you rather Win $50,000 or let your best friend win $500,000?

What’s the dankest meme you have on your phone?

Would you rather receive oral or give oral?

How many 4th graders do you think you can take on at once?

What dating advice would you give your younger self?

What’s something you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t yet?

If you could be a man for a day, what’s the first thing you’d do?

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would that be?

What’s your favorite way to be seduced?

What’s the dirtiest thought you’ve ever had about a stranger?

What’s the weirdest thing that turns you on?

That’s 15 questions.

#10: The opener to beat all openers

Apply the wisdom of this tip, and you’ll instantly become one of her favorite matches.

Most men on Bumble are incredibly boring: they drive the conversation to Snoozeville.

You already know this.

But what you don’t yet know is how to leverage the boring to your advantage.

Let’s introduce Normal Ned.

Ned is a normal dude.

He never does anything weird or rude.

And when he doesn’t know what to say, he asks for her favorite food.

Although Ned is bad with the ladies, he can turn you into a lady-killer.


You simply use his advice and do the opposite.

Suddenly you have directions to the exciting.

So next time you want to send your fresh match a text, think:

“What would Normal Ned do?”

Then you use Ned’s response to send the personalized opener.

Let’s practice.

Imagine you’re swiping and find the next profile:

Based off of this image alone, how do you open her (after ignoring her “Hey”)?

You first figure out what Normal Ned would say.

Ned would comment on her beauty.

Now you know what activates her gag reflex, you say the opposite.

Do you have any ideas?

I have two.

Here’s the first:

Oh my god. Absolutely gorgeous

I love paintings of the sea. Although I can instantly tell it isn’t an Ivan Aivazovsky. Probably my favorite painter of all time.

This example is what I’d like to send, but the odds of her replying to this are rather small. So I’ll send my next idea instead.

Storm Over The Black Sea by Ivan Aivazovsky. Absolutely gorgeous.

I’ve never seen something so beautiful

That cabinet is gorgeous. I must know the name of your interior designer

See what I did?

I started with the obvious, then gave it a spin.

Plus, I ended with “I must know the name of your interior designer” because it’s most likely her or her mom.

Which she’ll probably happy to point out.

Let’s look at another profile.

Guess what one idea is on Normal Ned’s mind.

Scratch that, Ned would have two voluptuous ideas bouncing in his skull.

So how would you break the ice when matched with this cutie?

Here’s my icebreaker:

Ja ckiedding me?

Did you not see the signs? No glassware allowed in the pool area! -5 points

To summarize my opener:

  1. A horrible play on words with her name.
  2. I put my focus on something that probably no other guy has talked about.
  3. And I tease her for her bad behaviour by taking away points.

I still don’t know where these points are coming from. But girls seem to hate it when you take them.

Girls on Bumble.

That covers what to do after she said “Hey”.

Starting a fun conversation should no longer be a problem for you.

But perhaps having enough conversations is a problem.

In that case, I’ve got just the thing.
