“Hi! What’s up?”
And there you lost a match again….
Getting a right swipe from that handsome man or that blue-eyed diva is not enough.
If you don’t break the ice, their name will be left in your chat box forever.
You have already sent ordinary messages to extraordinary matches and got very few responses.
But hey, there’s a way to keep them talking!
Ice-breakers are a great way to let them talk and leave you a message without a second thought.
We are here to help you with some great ice-breakers that will make you stand out of the crowd and help you win over your match’s attention!
Best Tinder Ice-Breakers Ideas
1. Ask a silly question
Let’s start with the famous Tinder ice-breaker – the weighing question.
The object of weighing is changed and the pattern remains the same. Like the classic “How much a Polar Bear weighs? Can be changed into “How much does the Titanic weigh?”
If you are asked this question, don’t be a bore and ruin it by correcting them. Instead, play along and let it do what it’s supposed to do – break the ice!
2. Use their name in your favor
Haven’t you heard that the favorite word of a person is their own name?
Who thought this knowledge could be used to get laid?
You can either get creative or make their name more special to them (like this guy did) or type any icebreaker and in the end, type their name with it.
It doesn’t matter if your icebreakers will catch their attention, but their own name surely will.
3. The “Roses are Red” Template
“You look like my grandmother”
“Roses are Red poem”
The choice is yours.
One will make you look like a freaking creep and the other will make you look like a fun-loving humorous person. Do not end up breaking your dreams instead of breaking the ice.
Choose your first impression wisely because it can be the last one.
4. Show off your Intelligence
You will be amazed to know but you can find a lot of sapiosexuals on Tinder. If you are not one of the people attracted by intelligence, then pity on you but trust me, there’s a flood of people out there who get turned on by acumen.
So, be the one who impresses the chicks and the bad boys by their impressive knowledge.
And if you think you can’t do it by yourself, you can always go to Google for some interesting intelligent stuff and copy-paste from there.
Fake it until you make it.
5. Self-Depreciative Jokes
Be romantic and say seductively “You look like Trash. I wanna take you out” and be ready to invite a series of swearing.
Call yourself trash and see them rolling on the floor in laughter.
Cracking jokes on yourself shows your confidence. It shows you are so confident that you can take jokes on yourself without the ego itching.
6. Teacher Jokes
We never liked our Maths Teacher, unless he was handsome and his biceps were out of our hormone controlling proportions.
Make your match think you are that teacher and then gear up to be their daddy.
If your match is really bad in algebra, then just think of a summer fling. You should not allow your kids to have a parent with poor academics.
7. Cheesy Icebreakers with a Twist.
There are a lot of people who don’t know how to flirt if it doesn’t include being cheesy.
But don’t get disheartened. You still stand a chance.
Dear, your cheesy line just has to be interesting to attract some attention.
Take cues from the picture above… you can still get their contact number.
8. Play a game!
No games should be played with emotions and relationships, but there’s no restriction on playing games with the Tinder user you have just matched.
Like always, playing games brings people closer and allows them to open up a lot.
So, whether it is a mathematical game or the famous “Truth or Dare” or “Never Have I Ever”, you will always find Tinder users very interested in games.
9. Compliments are never out of style.
There’s not one person on Earth who doesn’t like compliments.
But commenting on their looks like “You are cute” is an over tried method and completely out of style.
So, make your compliments sound genuine. Something like “I love your skin color – the black is so beautiful” and “Your dimples compliments your crooked teeth and I can’t stop but praise them” will be more focused on the real qualities of the person than a trite compliment.
10. The “What would you chose” Question
The “What would you choose?” questions go a long way in celebrity chat shows. On Tinder, it’s pretty the same. (Who doesn’t want to feel like a celebrity, even if it’s just about a question being asked?)
Choose a good question with a fun fact, a pun, a pickup line, and an option that states all of the above.
11. Go Smooth and Go Far
Smoooooth ice-breakers are rare, very rare.
But works wonders!
You can either copy the smooth icebreaker the guy used or create your own.
How will you do that?
Think of an imaginary scenario. Like, “Our first date was awesome” and the other person will go in a fix asking if they have ever met you and went on a date.
Done right, it’s sure to get you a reply and if things go right, a date.
12. Naughty, heh?
Being naughty is not a crime. Even if it is, people love it.
Show your naughty side with a naughty question like this guy did.
The 1-10 questions are always there to help you out. Based on your interests, use them smartly by changing the options.
It’s a lot better than the cliched “How you doing?” and “Why don’t you reply?”.

13. Test their abilities.
Asking questions about their abilities always plays well while breaking the ice.
It doesn’t need to be well-thought or well-strategized.
For instance, “Do you know what the 2nd material on the Periodic Scale is?” or “Do you know how to ride a bike?”
Give a twist to your response by tweaking it in terms of your partners favor.
Always remember, your primary aim is to win a date.
14. Straight to the point.
This is for the daring souls.
Want to be direct? That’s a great idea. Just know how to do it properly.
Go like “I wanna fuck you hard” and end up getting blocked.
Start from a question so the other person knows where you are going. If they still seem interested, smash them!
15. Be playful
Proper use of emojis is the best way to get playful on Tinder!
People like their matches to be chilled-out and fun. And there’s no other better way to do it than the use of emojis.
The Catch and get game is quite famous. You can never go wrong with it.
After all, the match is the catch you are trying to get.
16. Flirty Comparisons
Song lyricists and poets have compared their beloved’s eyes to the stars, cheeks to roses, and skin to white snow.
Make a change. Compare them to a household appliance, or cars. And ask their opinion on it to understand whether or not he/she likes it.
17. Keep their interests in mind
If you are thinking of dating your opposite gender, you must know the things that drive them crazy and the things that suit their interests.
You can’t talk about a shaving cream with a girl and about nail paints with the boys.
So, know what they like, like this guy knows girls like wearing men’s comfy clothing and uses it to his advantage.
18. Measurements are important.
You know it, right? Measurements are important. Whether you are measuring the dick or an imaginary scale rate you can use to get their number.
The lesson is to always think out of the box in order to not get out of their chatbox.
19. Number #1 tip – Read their BIOS!
Of course, you swiped right on that gorgeous profile picture.
But have some patience and read their Bio. It’s for your own good.
Take cues from it. Know their interests and disinterests, the kind of person they are, and what are their hobbies.
Try to know about their lifestyle before you text them so you have done your research and have some material in hand to start a conversation.
Even if you can’t relate to it, use the information in a way that they find interesting.
Use your wit to reply to the responses…
…and you are sure to lock a date! 😉
