How to Start a Conversation With a Guy on Tinder or Bumble

Let's be real—there's nothing easy about online dating. Though it's relatively simple to swipe and message your matches, it is increasingly difficult to keep a conversation going. Even with so many different people at your fingertips, it's hard to spark a connection!

The easiest thing to do, of course, to send him a quick "Hey" or "How are you?". But messages like these don't encourage anyone to respond. The best way to get a response is to ask a question—after all, everybody loves talking about themselves! Try to ask him something that allows him to open up to you and tell you more about himself. Once he's comfortable, the conversation will really start flowing!

So if you're stumped for what to ask, here's a list of over 200 basic, funny, weird, deep, and even flirty questions to ask a guy on Bumble (or Tinder, Hinge, OKCupid, etc.). Good luck!
