60+ Tinder Conversation Starters: Stop Blowing It With Your Matches


How to Start a Tinder Conversation?

Think that creating a Tinder bio is difficult? Wait until you swipe right, find a match, and stare at that blank screen without a clue what to say. It’s interesting how initiating a conversation online with someone you don’t know can feel so nerve-racking. But this is one hurdle you need to overcome if you don’t want to be left on read for the 10th time.

You wouldn’t want to start a Tinder conversation with a lame message such as “hey,” “’sup?” or “wyd?” The key lies in making your match feel something as soon as reading your opener. Many people go with something safe, like talking about something in their match’s bio. Others are more playful, sending jokes or even GIFs to catch the attention of their match. It never hurts to let your personality shine right from the start, as it helps you come out as more authentic rather than pretentious.

But then again, some people just couldn’t seem to come up with anything on their own. It happens to the best of us. If you’re in a pinch and you can’t afford to blow an opportunity with a match you really like, then these Tinder conversation starters should help. Remember, though; these openers are helpful for breaking the ice. It’s still on you what happens next and how to land that first date.
