The best First Tinder Messages are personalized, funny, and arouse curiosity. These three elements combined create a first Tinder message that is impossible to ignore. If you don’t have the creativity or time to think these up, then feel free to copy paste the examples in this article.
#1: Test the waters
There’s one thing ALL men agree on.
Women on dating apps aren’t funny.
So, for the first opener, let’s go with a first message that tests the waters. And see how she reacts.
Her response will be a good prediction for the rest of the conversation.
Like Erin in this case, whose name I didn’t even care to blur out because she deserves all the praise in the world.
You are hereby allowed to converse with me, m’lady.
Pretty solid line, if I say so myself.
And that was just number one of this article. The very best is still to come.
#2: If she chooses option 3… RUN!
The next first Tinder message is not only funny…
…it also detects for mood killers.
We all have a rough day from time to time…
(My video editors have rough days ALL the time because I’m the world’s #1 nitpicker.)
…It’s how you deal with your lows, that defines what kind of person you are.
So here we go:
If she goes with
Do yourself a favor and execute a Forrest Gump.
Honestly, a Tinder date straight at my place is my favorite way to deal with a bad day, but that’s not in the options.
I’m not complaining though. I swear I said that in a non-complaining tone of voice.
#3: The best first Tinder message in the world
Not this title, I really am about to give you the world’s most successful first Tinder message.
It’s an opener based on the principle of clickbait.
As you can see, this example of a first Tinder message makes women curious.
Apparently I said something that she wants to know more about.
Then I follow my icebreaker up with a tease because… well teasing is the essence of flirting.
And then I reverse the teasing vibe with a genuine compliment.
To which she replies:
Which surprised me to be honest, because I’ve seen that compliment being sent 69 billion times.
Just kidding, I promise it’s a genuine compliment.
Now, to somewhat protect my Clickbait Opener from being used by every man on the planet, including the guy chasing the same girl as you, I covered it up with black rectangles.
And only the men brave enough to click on the word PENIS, shall be rewarded with my #1 opener.
The choice is yours.
#4: When she has a pet
Everyone loves pets, and YOU, sir, are not an exception.
And luckily, many girls have a pet. And YOU, sir, are going to use that innocent pet.
Let me quickly clarify before PETA comes knocking at my door.
You’re going to abuse the fact that she has a pet, so start a conversation with her.
For a second she’ll think you are sleazeball number 52,934.
And then she realizes it was a set-up.
And you’re actually speaking to her dog. Or whatever pet she has.
Well played, sir.
#5: Understand her situation
That’s a fact.
You personalize your opener depending on what you see in her photos, bio, or…
…even her name.
Using one’s name to craft a clever joke, seems to be trending.
But there’s a catch.
When you match a girl named Jane, and you send her a first Tinder message saying:
Then you can rest assured that she’s facepalming instead of texting back.
She’s heard the Tarzan lines one billion times already.
And she hates them.
If you ARE set on making a name joke, then you’ve got to go next level.
Luckily for those tips you can only go to TextGod.com, I gothchu.
Like this guy on dating app Hinge:
Not only does he UNDERSTAND her situation.
He’s also creative enough to pull off what other guys couldn’t.
Well played, brother.
So always ask yourself:
“Am I being witty and original, or am I repeating the same joke everyone is making?”
#6: The greatest name openers
The guy hitting up Destinity with his name opener absolutely killed it.
But so did this fine sir who’s first message was on Tinder instead of Hinge:
Understanding + Creativity = Score
Want another one?
Of course you want another one!
And you’ll have it:
My hat off to all you three clever hombrés.
On to the next tip! And soon I will uncover the 2 texts to get her number straight away.
#7: Go on an ego trip
Can’t afford a relaxing holiday trip?
You can always go on a free ego trip with the next first Tinder message example.
In fact, it’s not really an ego trip unless she agrees with your opener.
Until then, it’s just arrogance, I guess.
Some playful arrogance which some girls will appreciate, and some won’t.
My issue with this as a first Tinder message, is that it doesn’t invite her to send an extensive reply.
It’s a bit hard for her to add a funny reply, so she’ll likely just agree with you.
Just like in the screenshot, more often than not will she text back a simple ‘Thanks’.
#8: Reinvent the classics
Damn right you better stay silent if you’re still sending the world’s most rehashed pickup lines!
Don’t do it!
Luckily there’s a way you CAN still use them, by the principle of remixing.
If you want to go near the classics, than reinvent them.
Don’t bore her with that old stuff, bore her with the upgraded version!
To be 100% honest, chances are high she won’t even bother replying with “Enough to break the ice” because she thinks she already knows what’s coming, and she doesn’t want any of it.
Either way, give it a shot, maybe it works wonders for you.
#9: Stop! Hammertime Holy Tip time!
The reason you are here, is because you want first Tinder message examples.
And don’t worry, you’re getting them in abundance.
…what if I told you, I have something even better?
If you don’t recognize this image, are you even a man?
What if you didn’t have to be the one starting conversations all the time.
But instead sometimes you could just kickback and relax, as girls opened conversations with you.
My god, if only you could experience that luxury.
I can tell you right now, as I am kicking back, that it feels amazing.
And I’m not talking about sleep inducing openers that girls tend to send when they are forced to start a conversation on Bumble.
I’m talking about proper first Tinder messages that took effort:
You’d be surprised how many of your matches hit you up with texts like this if you just…
…ask them to.
Add a simple Call To Action to your profile text.
Like I did here:
Yet so effective.
Will all girls now send you the most interesting openers ever?
Will SOME girls send you openers more interesting than a boring “hey”?
Will you have to open less girls yourself, you lazy bastard?
What are you waiting for?
Try it out!
Btw, another clever way to get even more girls to open you, is waiting for you further in the article. Calmly read on and you’ll stumble upon it.
#9: Get to know her Sunday agenda
What a person does on a Sunday, tells a lot about them.
Is she a hardcore entrepreneur that posts Sunday IG stories with cringey texts like:
“Work while everyone else is taking a day off. Kill the competition!!8&!1”
Or is she perfecting her full split in an early morning yoga class after a breakfast of only the purest fair trade tea and a self made acai bowl?
You’ll never know.
Unless you use this first Tinder message:
For me personally, Sundays are for ridding the body of last night’s alcohol, threesomes, and then some office and gym work.
Copy paste this opener and find out!
#10: Two truths and a lie
When something is just too good to be forgotten, it becomes a classic.
Whether we’re talking about The Great Gatsby novel, the Carmina Burana song by Carl Orff, or the cheeky game Two truths and a lie… they’re all legendary in their own way.
This song automatically plays whenever I am about to start my Sunday threesome. True story.
Anyway, for this tip we only have ears for the little game: two truths and a lie.
It can be part of a great bio, but it can just as well be a great opener.
Let’s play a round. I’ll pretend your name is Jean Jacques.
You then guess the lie. And then you are either spontaneous and start your own round, or I’all ask you to.
It’s a quick and clever way to get to know someone better.
You just have to hope the other person plays along, unlike this girl:
On to the next, which is a classic as well!
This will make your conversation kick off instantly in an interesting way.
#11: Difficult Dilemma: Level 1
The concept is simple:
You present someone with a difficult, hypothetical situation, and there’s only TWO options to choose from. Both options usually suck. They suck A LOT.
I’m already getting excited just knowing in how much of a pickle you’ll be when you have to choose one of both horrible options.
Difficult dilemmas are AWESOME.
Anyone that refuses to partake in them is a monster and someone you shouldn’t date.
(If you, my dear reader, yes you there glaring at this screen, happen to be one of the people that answer “I can’t chose” or “I don’t want to play this game”, then GTFO my blog, you feeble excuse for a man!)
The trick is to lure people in with an easier dilemma.
One that won’t make any girl say:
So, we reel them in with gentle one:
Even though both options are amazing, it’s still a Difficult Dilemma, because you can only pick one.
But it becomes less joyful when both options are unpleasant.
#12: Difficult Dilemma: Level 2
No more pleasant options now.
Seriously, try choosing.
You know you won’t ever have a successful date anymore with a worm swinging from your nose.
But so you think your date will want to see you again when you run past a kid playing with his new Christmas gift and she sees you storming towards him only to see you obliterating his toys with hyper aggressive kicks?
The choice is yours.
Well no, actually the choice is your match’s.
But the real difficulty is when both options are absolute nightmares.
#13: Difficult Dilemma: Level 3
Everyone wants to tap out during level 3.
But no one is allowed.
I just made that up.
And yes, I’m fine.
On to the next tip.
#14 Oldskool pickup lines, anyone?
Time for the original style of pick up lines.
Some girls dislike them, some beg for them in their Tinder about me.
I remember shooting a Tinder Icebreaker video with my girlfriend.
We had an actual bar of ice in front of us and I gave her a hammer.
I then fired a bunch of first Tinder texts at her and if she found them funny, she had to actually break the ice, with her hammer.
And for some reason, she was more enthusiastic about this opener than most others:
Don’t ask me why.
Just try it out for yourself, I’d say.
I can’t be arsed sharing only good first Tinder messages anymore.
From now on, I’ll also share amusing, potentially harmful lines.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

#15: Getting her number in 2 texts
For all you lazy bastards:
Is it a good first Tinder message?
Only when it works.
And that won’t be very often.
But at least it’s fun when you don’t feel like activating your brain.
And sometimes it’ll even work. Feelsgoodman.
#16: Die Hard
An ancient game to some, something unheard of to others.
“Describe your XXX with a movie title.”
XXX could be anything, but love/dating life is usually the most fun.
Next you follow these two steps:
- Pray for a response.
- Pray she’s funny.
If your prayers are heard, she’ll text back something like this:
Let’s try another version in the next tip.
Back in the days when I was a 22 year old virgin, this would have been mine:
#17: Mock Tinder together
Same concept as before.
Only this one we’re not talking about her love life. And we’re not using movie titles.
Here’s the text:
Next you repeat the praying steps again.
And if they worked, stuff should look something like this:
This is good news bro, because she’s summarizing your competition.
In my personal (limited) testing phase, this first Tinder message wasn’t very successful. Asking her to actually be witty and put in effort right from the get-go can be too much to ask for.
It feels more like something you’d send at a further stage in the conversation.
And I know you’re not asking but…
IF you’d ask me, I’d go for this bodybuilding classic:
I tend to have that effect on girls
On to the next example soon, but first, a lesson you should never ever forget.
#18: Stop! Hammertime Holy Tip time! (part 2)
In tip #8 I told you about the CTA, and how it makes girls send YOU the first Tinder message.
And then I promised you that I’d share a second way later.
Well, mon frère, that time is now.
Your CTA should do the bulk of the work, but you can make your pictures do their part as well.
I have tried so many styles of photos and profiles, that any person tasked to archive them would go insane.
But you know my #1 online dating rule, do you?
If you can stand out, you can get the girl out.
Death to cliché profiles.
That’s why I get texts like this when I make more crazy profiles:
And girls sent me first Tinder messages like this when I included a weird photo of me, posing artfully and semi-naked with 11 teddy bears:
Am I telling you to go take off your shirt and pose with a bunch of stuffed animals?
One that will make that girl looking at your profile go like:
While some others will unfortunately be like:
You can’t win everyone over. But at least now you’ll win over the ones who like you for you.
#19: Another reason to get a dog
- Women love dogs
- Your dog loves women
Fact #2 is debatable. You might not have a dog and he might be into bitches instead of women.
You already know giving women compliments on their looks in the first message is a no-go.
But no informed your dog.
This time you don’t have to pray for her to reply with something creative or funny.
You just need to pray she’s super empathetic and actually comes over for your imaginary dog’s sake.
#20: From cheesy to sad real quick
It starts off cheesy.
Then turns sad.
#21: From well-behaved to out-of-control real quick
In #9 I gave you an icebreaker to find out her Sunday plans.
This one works better for Fridays or Saturdays.
Feel free to send this any day if you adjust the day of the week.
And hey bro, I know…
…you’re not asking me but I’m writing this on a Thursday and my Thursday is potentially going to end in a cocaine orgy. If you replace the cocaine with Jager bombs…
…and the orgy with a museum visit.
It’s one of those nights where museums are open at night and charge no entrance fee.
If your city has a museum night as well, I advise you to go there.
Take a date or some friends.
You’ll be using some of these first examples.
Probably the ones you deem the best first Tinder messages.
And when she responds, you’ll need a witty reply to show her you’re not a bore like most men on Tinder.
Do you know what you’ll say?
If not, I have some inspiration for you, my dude.

I’m giving them to you for free, and they come bullshit-free.
#22: Difficult Dilemma: Level 4
You thought it ended at level 3 earlier in the article?
Think again, Sonny.
Here we go, and don’t you dare puss out without picking an option.
I’m not picking an option.
#23: Politely introduce yourself
Just share more details than she asked for so she doesn’t have to ask.
Here’s your line:
My grandparents were second cousins. I’m not missing any limbs, but it’s okay if you are. Oh and I’ve only collected two tears in prison. If I sound like a catch, message me 🙂
Wow. Talking about a good Tinder message.
#24: Personal(ized) openers are king
At the end of the day, there’s only two types of openers at the top.
- My Clickbait Opener
- Personalized openers
The first one you get explained in a secret video that I am personally sending to you. If you click the link.
The second one, goes like this:
Step 1: You see a profile you like.
Well well well, would you look at this:
Step 2: You pick one element you like
This could be something from her profile text or one of her pictures.
There were multiple things I like about Ariana.
And many personalized texts came to mind.
BUT, I know that I’m not the only man to think about Ariana Grande name jokes at this point.
So I refrain from going that route.
Because if I don’t, then all I am saying is:
“Hey, I think I’m original but I lack social intelligence to predict other people’s behavior.”
So, I take it one step further, to a place where most men never go.
Step 3: Send your personalized opener.
Send a personal text regarding the thing that stood out to you.
And don’t worry, your message doesn’t need to be as witty as this one.
Let’s look at a much simpler example in the next tip.
#25: An easy personalized opener
Alright, I get it.
Guys often tell me they can’t come up with the witty stuff.
And that’s fine.
That doesn’t have to be the death of your online dating adventure.
Just send her a personalized opener WITHOUT the witty part.
There usually, not always, but usually SOMETHING you can relate too in a profile.
Sometimes you just need to look better.
There was this amazingly sexy girl on Tinder.
And I had matched her three times already over the years.
But the conversation never went anywhere.
Yet we matched each other AGAIN.
And then I saw this photo on her profile:
I blurred everything except what stood out FOR ME.
I know, that’s probably not what stood out FOR YOU.
Thank god we are different people with different interests.
Now you may not instantly see what I am pointing at, so I zoomed in for you.
Well if it isn’t 4 DVD’s of Gossip Girl, one of the best shows ever.
(One of the best shows every if you’re in puberty or if you’ve never really left puberty, like me.)
What followed could be classified as a miracle.
I texted this girl about Gossip Girls and BOY OH BOY…
All those difficult and stranded conversations I’ve had with her were suddenly a thing of the past.
We rambled about Gossip Girl for hours.
All because I obsessively looked at her photo in search for any small detail something that I could send the best first Tinder message with.
