Tinder conversation starters can be a hit or miss. We found some of the best ways to start a conversation app on a dating app, so you’ll end up receiving an intrigued response.

Here are some well-thought-out icebreakers to whip out next time your creativity is running dry on a dating app. You can also check more examples here.

“Hey, what have you been up to today? I just saved a baby duck from drowning.”

One foolproof way to open on Tinder is with something funny. It honestly doesn’t matter how silly the sentence is. A little humor can go a long way. Making someone laugh will definitely start you off on the right foot.

“Sing to me, Paolo”

Anything niche that requires explaining gets you at least a response back even if it’s just “what?” This also a test to see if whoever you’re talking to has ever seen the Lizzie McGuire Movie. If not, start talking about your favorite movies and see where things go from there!

“Best LaCroix flavor?”

Who doesn’t love a good controversial subject? If he answers something popular, you can play devil’s advocate just for fun and pick a random flavor.

This response is more lowkey and most likely won’t scare anyone away. However, you shouldn’t feel bad if you do get ghosted. Disappearing after someone starts the conversation tends to happen on dating apps.

“What’s your favorite Justin Timberlake song?”

You don’t have to pick Justin Timberlake. What’s not to love about JT, though? He’s been fairly unproblematic, so this conversation starter shouldn’t send someone running in disgust. Not to mention, he has quite a few hit throwbacks worth reminiscing on.

“Do you wanna grab a drink on Thursday?”

Meet them in real life. Why treat the conversation as long distance when you can just meet up in person? I know it sounds crazy but actually following through with your plans to get together could have a major payoff.

“Titanic. That’s my icebreaker. What’s up?”

We already mentioned that humor is a good way to start off the conversation. Take icebreakers to the next level and show off your wittiness. It’s basically the perfect mix of comedy and casual.

“🤠” AKA Cowboy Emoji

Make your messages effective by using emojis. There’s an array of random emojis that should spark some response from someone. Especially if you just send an emoji like the cowboy emoji and nothing else.

Start the conversation nonverbally for a laugh. The best part about gifs is they’re difficult not to respond back to. Before you know it, your conversation will just consist of gifs. Seeing what gifs someone chooses is an effective way to determine their personality and humor.

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

Oprah Winfrey "so what is the truth?" meme


“Two truths and a lie” is a classic brain teaser and a fun way to amp up the energy. It’s also great for letting your imagination shine. This game could lead to some interesting stories.
