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.

Before we dive into the conversation starters, some essential info.

The women on Hinge are outnumbered.

By how many is unknown, but it’s clear the men greatly exceed the ladies.

Which means the ladies are getting a LOT of attention.

The more attention the girls get, the more you need to stand out.

Sending a boring text is the equivalent of running into a minefield.

One wrong step and you’ll fly into her discard pile.

Yes, that means you only have ONE SHOT at making a good impression.

Nervous yet?

No worries, bro.

I’ve got your back.

As you charge into her inbox, I’ll be whispering TextGod strategies into your ear that’ll take you past her defenses.

And right into her warm, gushy heart.

Put simply, my Hinge conversation starters will make you stand out and make her feel special.

Don’t particularly care about making her feel special?

You’re in luck, because my Hinge conversation starters will also get you her reply!

Let’s get started.

#1: Most successful Hinge icebreaker

I want to help you find good Hinge conversation starters SO badly, I tagged in team Hinge for help.

Naturally, Hinge jumped at the opportunity to work with team TextGod.

At least, that’s how it played out in my head.

In reality, Hinge ran an icebreaker experiment to help out its own users.

And measured the effectiveness of 100 unique openers.


The dating app hand-picked a group of volunteers and sent each participant a random opener for each of his or her matches.

Hinge recorded the response rate for every line.

And got over 8 million user impressions!

Before I get to the winners, let’s go over the LOSERS.

It should be no surprise that ‘Hey’ and all its variations did terribad.

The reason, of course, is that it forces your match to carry the burden of the conversation.

Enter ‘Hey’ into the subtext translator and you get:

“Hey, I don’t have anything interesting to say. Entertain me.”

Hardly a first text message that makes her weak in the knees.

So what were the most successful openers?

Questions in the shape of games.


Best discovery: Netflix or avocados?

Find out how to make your own question-games in the next tip.

#2-4: The secret of the question-game opener

The reason women can’t resist question-game icebreakers is simple.

They’re entertaining PLUS easy to answer.

Just check out the next super successful Hinge conversation starter:

Sunday priorities: exercise, sleep or aggressive mimosas?

Do you feel how fun it is to read and answer that question?

Here’s why:

  • Sunday is a day off. So it has a positive link
  • It ends on an expected and funny twist
  • And you barely have to think about your reply

The best about question-games for conversation starters?

It’s super easy!

Just look at the next high-ranking Hinge opener:

Pain reliever personality: Advil, tequila, or complaining?

I find this one even better than the Sunday priorities question, because it’s personal.

It describes something about your Hinge crush.

Is she a Basic Becky, an Adventurous Anne, or a Negative Nelly?


And it’s not difficult to imitate.

Here’s one I just made up on the fly:

Exercise personality: pilates, crossfit, or getting up from the couch to grab some nachos


A dynamite Hinge conversation starter that she 169% hasn’t seen before.


Which means you can too.

Simply pick a subject, like music. Pick two genres, like hip hop and metal. And add an unexpected but fitting punchline.

Show me what you came up with in the comments.

#5: The #1 Hinge conversation starter

The moment you’ve been waiting for…

The Hinge opener that did the best out of 100 expertly written icebreakers!

Buckle up, kiddo.

Because here it comes:

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

“Louis… was that it?”



I’m not.

It’s a game the English speaking world has enjoyed playing for years.

Let me explain the rules in case you’re the unique snowflake who doesn’t know.

One player has to come up with three statements about themselves.

Two are the truth. The last is a lie.

The other player has to spot the lie.

In this case, I recommend you come up with the statements and let her guess.

Two truths and a lie:

I swam with sharks

I got shot in the knee by Peruvian thieves

7 out of 8 crushes in high school turned out to be gay

After she guesses, you have to say whether she’s right or wrong.

Always try to write weird and embarrassing statements. Simply scour your memory for two crazy things you’ve done in your life. Then add an equally nutty lie.

That instantly makes a game of two truths and a lie a super fun way to get to know each other.

As it naturally flows into a normal conversation.

Because sometimes the truth will be so shocking, that she can’t resist digging into the details.

Which is precisely what you want.

#5: Compliment her… on yourself

The next opener almost always gets her to reply.

Plus, it makes you seem more attractive.

What is this miraculous Hinge conversation starter?

An overlooked-classic.

Here it comes:

I don’t usually give compliments to people I meet right away, but you have excellent taste in men 👌

WARNING: Although the self-compliment breaks the ice, it doesn’t easily push the conversation forward.

Usually you’ll get a reply similar to:

Thanks 😉

Which is honestly all you need.

But if you have trouble knowing what to say next, the self-compliment may not be right for you.

If you struggle with continuing the conversation, you’re better off with the next Hinge conversation starter.

#6: The most effective conversation starter in the Solar System

The next conversation starter is so good it got me an honorary degree from Harvard, was nominated for a Nobel Prize, and got us the first message from extraterrestrials.

Although you won’t be credited with any ground-breaking achievements you will get another goodie.

Her reply and undivided attention.

What does the best Hinge icebreaker of all-time look like?

Like clickbait.

The ladies can’t resist it.

See for yourself:

Isn’t that clever?

Right, you can’t see what I wrote because of the big black coc… ehh, I mean bars. (Excuse me, Freudian slip.)

Sorry, bro.

I can’t give away my crown jewel to the internet that easily.

#6-7: An effective opener if you do it right

Now for another game conversation starter your Hinge crush will PROBABLY like.

I know what you’re thinking, you don’t like the odds of probably.

But those odds shoot up depending on your Hinge crush.

Specifically her interests and profile questions.

I forget the exact wording, but I often see a question like:

“If you could have dinner with one person, dead or alive, who would it be?”

Let’s suppose you have a Hinge match who answered that question with, “Tupac”.


The game I have in mind will be irresistible to her.

Because I’d send her this:

Fuck, marry, kill: Tupac, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg

People that all line up with her interests. (They’re all East coast rappers.)

Which will get you a reply, plus a quick look into her personality.

Does that mean you can only play ‘Fuck, marry kill’ if she answered that dinner date question?

Hell no.

You can successfully use ‘Fuck, marry kill’ when your Hinge match mentions her passion.

Imagine she likes comedy.

Send her this:

Fuck, marry, kill: The Office, Modern Family, Friends

Comedy shows she’s almost guaranteed to have seen.

And that also reveals a lot about her personality.

#9-10: Easy way to melt her heart

The most effective conversation starters for Hinge are easily…

Personalized openers.

Sure, generic personalized openers work.

Was your father a thief?


Because someone stole the stars from the sky and put them in your eyes

An old, but GOLDEN line. (Although I personally recommend to never start with a compliment if she clearly gets them by the ton.)

Anyway, generic conversation starters are always a risk.

Because there’s a chance she’s seen it before.

Plus, generic openers are never as powerful as a tailor-made opener.

Think about it.

Wouldn’t you feel flattered if a girl sent you a first text message that she could IMPOSSIBLY have made for anyone else but you?

I sure do.

The rare times a lady opens me with a text that she clearly based on my profile… I can’t help but rock a chub.

Based on the countless positive reactions I got from my personalized openers, I know women love ‘em too.

So let’s get physical personal!

Where do you start?

With her photos and bio.

What stands out?

Does she mention her hobbies? Does she have a poster of Marilyn Monroe in the background? Does she have Harry Potter books on her shelf?

All wonderful material for personal openers on Hinge.

As you can see here:

In this case, her bio said “Wish I studied at Hogwarts.”

Anyway, it was a clever joke.

That she VERY much appreciated:

Marry me


Doesn’t get much better than that.

So if you truly want to make a good impression, make your opener personal.

BONUS: What to say after you start the conversation

Although you can easily open any girl on Hinge, you probably have another big issue that’s hurting your sex life.

You can’t keep the conversation going.

At least, not without scaring her off.

Without a clue what to say, most men fall back on the basic question.

Which isn’t awful.

Unless your questions hijack the conversation.

In case you didn’t already know, women don’t like to be interrogated.

So how do you keep the conversation moving without firing question after question?

With a simple and super effective technique.

Personal statements.

Personal statements almost make it impossible for you to be boring.

After all, everybody likes to hear how other people view them.

How do you make personal statements?

First, you find a question about your Hinge match that you’d like the answer to.

To keep it simple, let’s suppose you want to know her taste in music.

Next, you study her photos and fashion style.

Let’s pretend she has an urban vibe going on.

Now you put your question in music and her taste in fashion together:

Those cut up denims and baggy sweats tell me you’re into hip-hop. Yeah, you’re definitely crushing on face tattoo rappers

Is your statement wrong?

No problem.

Don’t think your statement needs to be accurate.

That’s the beauty of personal statements.

If the statement doesn’t fit the girl, she’ll definitely correct you.

As long as she cares about your opinion, she’ll want to uphold her reputation.

And send you the reply you so want.

Anyway, these Hinge convo starters are excellent BUT…

If your conversation burns out after 5 texts, your starter is ultimately useless.

That’s why I’m giving you a free solution to keep your conversations going forever:
