We Know *The* Most Perfect Tinder Chat-Up Line

Ever spent hours staring at your phone trying to think of an opening line on Tinder or Happn?

Maybe you’ve been left totally bamboozled by something a potential date has said to you on a dating app.

Let’s be honest, it can be hard to spark up a conversation with someone you’ve never met or spoken to. And (bless them) some people just get it so wrong.

But what SHOULD we be typing to entice a potential boyfriend or girlfriend?

Well. Dating app Hinge has been doing some experiments. And in their month-long study, they found out some pretty interesting things.

They worked out the official best chat-up lines by creating over 100 unique conversation-starters. They then gave a percentage of Hinge users access to them and analysed the success rate.

Apparently, women are ‘40% more likely than men to respond to openers that are food-related.’ Which doesn’t really surprise us, tbh.


On the other hand, men favour more direct messages. A line such as: ‘Drinks this week?’ had a 98% stronger response for them.

Your preferred talking point also differs depending on your age.



For those within the 18-23 bracket, the most popular opener was: ‘Pain reliever personality: Advil, Tylenol, or complaining?’

24-28 year olds liked lifestyle-related chat, while 29-34 year olds were attracted to personal questions such as: ‘Two truths and a lie; ready, set, go!’

Users aged 35+ responded most positively to pop culture references.


So there you go. Now you know exactly how to score a date for this weekend…
