11 Types Of Tinder Lines That Work Every Time

Having great Tinder conversations can be difficult. Some of your matches don’t even reply to your openers. Other convos become so dull that your match stops replying altogether.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have Tinder lines that work every time?

In this article I’ll give you Tinder lines for different situations and challenges that work great, time and time again.

Important: I know you're sometimes unsure what to text. So I've put together 10 Texts That Always Work. Copy-paste lines that instantly attract her and make her crave your attention. They work and they are free. Just a small gift to get you started. Enjoy! Click here to get them.

What makes great Tinder pickup lines work?

Before we dive into the actual lines, I want you to understand WHY they work.

Because you can’t fake a great conversation by copy-pasting lines all the time.

Good lines do a couple of things:

  • They are fun and flirty.
  • They show you’re not needy (she still has to prove herself).
  • They make your match respond.
  • They demonstrate your personality.

Basically, you want her to feel a waterfall of emotions when she talks to you.

The opposite – boring and needy texts – are often times informative. They don’t focus on emotions, but on exchanging information and factually getting to know each other.

There’s nothing wrong with getting to know each other. But keep in mind that triggering emotions and evoking attraction is your primary goal.

Let’s have a look at some great lines that always work.

1. GIFs

You don’t always have a clever quip at the ready.

A great backup that always works is sending animated GIFs.

Before I give you the how-to, let’s discuss the 3 reasons why they work.

  • Humor. Although they’re not always knee-slappers, GIFs are always funny, unlike poorly written lines.
  • Emotional. Because it’s visual, all GIFs easily trigger emotions. And that makes her more likely to answer.
  • Science. Tinder ran the numbers and discovered that texts with a GIF are 30% more likely to get a response.

With solid support for the GIF opener, we move on to the instructions. Because you don’t want to send her just ANY GIF. You want to send a GIF that’s PERSONAL.

And finish your opener with:

That’s you

For that to work, your GIF needs to click. Here are some ideas.

  • Does she have red hair? Send her a laughing GIF of the girl from Brave.
  • Is she over 6 feet tall? Send her a GIF from the Doin’ Time clip by Lana Del Rey.
  • Does she like surfing and dogs? Send her a GIF of a pooch shredding waves.
  • Is she into yoga and cats? Send her this:

You during yoga class

Simple and EFFECTIVE. Check her bio for hobbies and type them into the GIF search bar.

Does her bio not reveal much? Scope out her photos for locations, pets, hobbies, and personality.

2. Tinder lines that use her name

Get a simple Tinder line that has a surprisingly HIGH response rate.

One of the hardest things with pick-up lines is finding a good subject. A subject that works every time?

Her name.

To her, it’s the most important word in the world. So you know her name grabs her attention.

How do you motivate her to reply? By making it funny. Like us, women like people who make them laugh. Check it out.





As you can see, laughter works.

Do you find it hard to come up with name-related puns?

Google is your friend. Type in her name plus “Tinder puns.” You’ll probably get a few hits.

Holy Tip:

Stay away from the obvious.

Jane won’t appreciate Tarzan jokes.

Neither does Alexa “play Despacito.”

And Faith definitely has no “faith” it’s going to work out between you two.

The less obvious the joke, the better.

3. Tinder lines that use stimulating questions

I’m about to give you 5 stealable questions that always work.

Most lines women get on Tinder fall into two categories:

  • Understimulation. “What’s up?”
  • Overstimulation. “I want to tongue punch your fart box.”

You want to hit the sweet spot in between the two. I call it, the taint of stimulation.

How do you give your opener that perfect balance?

By following the following line recipe.

Every Tinder line that works checks three boxes:

  • It’s different.
  • It’s relevant.
  • It’s triggering.

Different and relevant speak for themselves. What most guys struggle with is triggering emotions.

And while almost any strong emotion urges her to reply, it’s best to go for an emotion that easily leads the conversation forward.

Contrary to what many guys believe, girls actually DO like friendly guys. As long as they aren’t ass-kissing nice-guys. She wants someone who can push her buttons, but who also treats her like a lady.

So what’s the easiest emotion to seduce her with? Humor. Because this tip is about questions, let’s give you five humdingers.

1. Movie trivia

What movie title best describes your love life?

Here’s a possible answer if she asks for yours:

2. Would you rather

Would you rather be with the person you love forever, but also wear a shirt made out of their pubes, or be alone for the rest of your life but wear whatever you want?

3. Creative

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

4. If you can’t handle me at my worst…

Pain reliever personality: Advil, tequila, or complaining?

5. Her favorite Sunday

Sunday priorities: exercise, sleep, or aggressive mojitos?

Want more stimulating questions?

4. Tinder lines that use clickbait

The next opener has the HIGHEST success rate out of all our Tinder lines.

One word… Clickbait. Yes, I know it gets a bad rep. But it works.

Imagine you came across the next YouTube titles.

  • I jumped out of a plane.
  • My teacher hit me!!
  • My boss stole from me.
  • I survived a hurricane.
  • Science says this is the best time of day to drink coffee.
  • Why Buzzfeed doesn’t use clickbait.

Be honest, you want to watch the videos.

How do we translate the power of clickbait to a Tinder line that works every time?


Hey! I noticed something funny about your profile


Hey! Know what’s interesting about your profile?

Trust me, the ladies can’t resist.

Find out for yourself!

If you want two follow-up lines to reel them in further, check out my Clickbait Opener video.

The video includes 7 screenshot examples and a girl who used my line against me.

5. Tinder lines that use her distance when she is nearby

A line you can use even if her photos and bio give you nothing to work with.

It’s a question I get all the time: “Louis, what do I say to a match who only has three photos of herself and no bio?”

With little else to go with, you’ll probably want to go generic. And as you can guess, generic doesn’t work as well.

Do you know why? Because it’s not tailored to her. It doesn’t make her feel as special. And so it doesn’t arouse as many emotions.

So if you go generic, you still want to keep it as relevant as possible. So what do you do? You use her location.

Behold, the opener of a guy who simply strikes gold.

Obviously, this funny line works best on ladies close by.

But even if she’s on the other side of town, she probably won’t correct you.

Holy Tip:

If you have Tinder Gold or Tinder Plus, you can hide your distance.

So even if you’re not nearby, she won’t even know.

Which makes this line all the more powerful.

6. Tinder lines that match the previous convo (When you just got her number)

Here’s what you send your match after she gives you her number. You just got a direct line to her phone. And now you’re in her circle of trusted contacts.

So what lines do you text her? Whatever subject you choose, you want to match the same tone as on Tinder.

Did you talk about food? Give her a cute nickname.

Hey french fry

Did you talk about space?

Send her a meme.

When the black hole won’t stop sucking

Did you talk about the series Friends? Perfect!

Ross and Rachel are the perfect characters for a sexually charged roleplay.

I think you’re the Rachel to my Ross

I want to start a passionate relationship with you, grow jealous of your co-worker, start a huge fight, and go too far with another girl, just so I can say


Comedic genius. Almost all girls know and love Friends.

If you can quote Friends, you have a direct ticket to almost any girl’s heart.

So if your Tinder convo doesn’t give you any inspiration.

Copy-paste the Ross and Rachel story.

Odds are she’ll love it.

Holy Tip:

The key element to the Friends gag is its relatability.

Eventually, Friends will be forgotten. So you’ll want to pick a series that she does know.

Does her bio mention she watches the latest Netflix show? Use that as inspiration for a joke.

7. Tinder lines that assume attraction (When you are asking her out)

How you ask her out can make or break the deal.

If a girl is super into you, it doesn’t matter how you phrase the date. She just wants to see you, end of story.

But women from Tinder don’t know you too well and are on the lookout for red flags. They look for warnings that show you might not be as cool as she thought you were.

If she sees one too many signs of danger, she won’t go out with you. And may even stop speaking to you.

So if you don’t want all your hard work to be for nothing, you need to ask her out RIGHT.

To know what’s right, we first need to know what’s wrong. A bad date proposal is one of three things:

  • It’s boring.
  • It’s wimpy.
  • It’s unconvincing.

Sounds fine in theory. But what does a bad date proposal actually look like?

Want to go for drinks sometime?

It evokes zero emotion. It doesn’t assume she already wants to go. It doesn’t give her a good idea of what to expect.

What does a good date proposal look like?

Find out in my short, info-packed video.


8. Tinder lines that make her curious

While I don’t know the exact number, the next line has a roughly 90% success rate.

That’s bizarre. Especially when you consider how generic it is. The line works even when you don’t look at her bio or photos.

Got a new match? Paste the line and hit send for success. Like one of my previous icebreakers, it’s straight-up clickbait.

The opener makes her SO curious, that she has to reply.

What’s the line?

Hahah oh shit! Not sure if you remember…

Every woman wants to know what she’s forgotten.

Does he know me?”

Did we go to school together?”

Did we hook up at a party???”

I NEED to know!”

The interaction usually starts like this:

Now that she answers, you have a gazillion possible answers.

The Cookie Monster’s real name is, Sid. #NeverForget

Vending machines kill more people than sharks

The blob of toothpaste that sits on your toothbrush has a name. “Nurdle”

High heels were originally for men. So don’t be surprised when I rock stilettos on our date

The majority of your brain is fat. That’s why I’m so husky

There are sign language equivalents of tongue twisters which are known as “finger fumblers.” But when I do it it’s called “a stroke”

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer is actually a female. So if I call you Rudolph it’s because you brighten my day

Or you can hit her with the driest fact you know:

9. Tinder lines that use sexual innuendo

Does your profile attract more conservative girls? Then you may want to skip this opener.

It’s a principle called Sexual Innuendo.

That’s fancy talk for a play on words. For example:

“We need to go deeper” can be read as a call for further questioning or hint at sexy-time.

The Tinder technique is slightly different though. You want to start with an obviously sexual remark, as the first half of your sentence. And give it a playful meaning with the last half of your sentence.

What does sexual innuendo look like on Tinder?

The above conversation is not my own. It’s quite blunt. And above all, it’s enough to get you banned from Tinder. But it does prove that sexual innuendo works (on SOME women).

The principle works even better on more girls, if you add a dash of empathy.

“I’d fuck you” as a first line will get you unmatched by most women. For more success, you want to include the punchline with the first text. Rather than waiting for her to reply.

I’d fuck you… up in Mario Kart

Now she instantly recognizes it’s a joke. And that you’re not a complete creep.

Want to increase the odds of success even more? Ask her if she enjoys double entendres.

Hey, Bae69. Do you like bad wordplay?

Hah, sure

And only now do you drop your naughty lines.

This way you show her that you’re a man of understanding, who also likes X-rated jokes.

Nothing creepy or weird about you.

10. Tinder lines that show your intentions intelligently

Do you know what goes wrong with most Tinder conversations? The convo goes on FOREVER.

And when the guy eventually pops the big question:

What’s your number?

She gracefully declines.

Why? The conversation is entirely platonic. There’s no banter or flirting. So she sees you more as a friend than anything else.

So how can you make her want to actually feel attracted to you?

By showing your intentions. Show her that you’re a sexual being and that you find her attractive.

The earlier you show her your desires, the better. Because the longer you wait, the harder it gets.

So if you’re naturally a nice guy, how do you make your Tinder convo more sexual?

By watching my next video.

11. Tinder lines that use radical authenticity

If you don’t know what to say, you can use the next method to seduce your match.

Be real and have fun.

That advice sounds too cheesy to be true. So let’s class it up a little.

Shift your focus away from being liked by everyone, and focus on showing your true self.

At TextGod we call this being radically authentic. It’s one of the core principles we teach.

If you want to attract and satisfy every girl you match on Tinder, you’ll think, “What can I say to make HER like me.”

So you’re constantly on the lookout for the ‘right’ text. Not only is that exhausting, but women can smell that you’re fake from a mile away.

If your Tinder profile is dynamite, which it will be if you use my Dating Profile Checklist, you’ll have an abundance of matches.

If you have a steady flow of matches, you don’t need to worry about upsetting a few ladies with your personality.

If your sense of humor turns off some girls, who cares? The girls who do like your jokes will LOVE them.

So loosen up and share some jokes that crack you up! Since I promised you a funny line, here it is.

Your Tinder experience summed up in 1 gif

Whenever you’re lost for words and you want to inject fun into the conversation…

Caption a gif.

Holy Tip:

Do you see yourself as a serious fella? This is for you.

All Tinder conversations ultimately exist for one purpose: To raise positive emotions and set the date.

Tinder is not about exchanging facts. Or getting to know your match on a meaningful level.

So leave all questions about work, family, school, and hobbies for the date. Instead, focus on fun.

What to do when your lines don’t work

Sometimes the line isn’t the problem… sometimes it’s YOU.

Let me explain. Flirting always involves sharing a little about yourself.

Sometimes the sharing goes a little bit too far. And you end up trying too hard to get her approval.

  • You hand out too many compliments.
  • You follow her opinion and forget your own.
  • You eagerly boast about your good qualities.
  • You laugh at her every joke.
  • You try too hard to make her laugh.

All these actions are natural if you want your match to like you. We all want to be liked. But sometimes we try too hard. And that’s a problem.

Because if you oversell yourself, she feels your insecurity, gets turned off, and stops replying. A confident man doesn’t try hard to be liked. He already knows he’s cool and doesn’t give a rat’s ass what you think.

That’s why all Hollywood film bad boys are laid back. They don’t need other people to verify their swag.

Now, you know overselling yourself is the enemy, but how do you avoid it? It’s all in your texting pattern.

Text too much and you scare her off. Text too little and she loses interest. Text just right and she wants to meet you.

Check my article on overtexting a girl too much if you know this is one of your pitfalls.

Before I sign off, I want to give you one last nugget of Tinder wisdom:

The value of your profile cannot be underestimated.

No matter how epic your lines, you won’t get matches without looking like you can give her a GREAT time.

If your profile heats up her baby maker, you can get away with an OKAY opener. Suddenly, you don’t need a PhD in creative writing.

The more attractive your photos and bio, the more likely she’ll respond.

So if you want an easy life with lots of bobs and vegana, download my Dating Profile Checklist.

And get the active sex life you deserve.

Enjoy, amigo.
