20 Tinder Icebreakers — Get Her To Reply!
#1: Compliment Icebreakers
I’ll level with you straight off the bat: Compliment ice breakers aren’t easy to get right.
See, some people use online dating purely for validation. They love to get matches and they love to hear guys tell them how great they look.
Plus, it doesn’t always open up room for a conversation. You might say, “hey! Great eyes” and they might respond with “haha thanks for noticing!”
But, hey, sometimes compliment ice breakers really work. They make the other person feel good, they let them know you’re interested and if you’re lucky, they can actually kick start a conversation.
Before you use a compliment icebreaker, here are some things to consider:
Here are 5 examples of compliment icebreakers:
“Hey, you like Coldplay? I love them too, they’re one of the best bands around! You clearly have good taste in music.”
“Just noticed how your shirt really brings out the blue in your eyes, amazing.”
“Damn, your bio is so witty! I’ve gotta up my own game.”
“Sounds like you have an ace personality. Ever thought of starting up your own YouTube channel?”
I especially like number 3 because you’re not just complimenting their physical appearance – you’re also complementing their sense of style and fashion. Plus, you’re showing that you’ve really paid attention to their pics.
#2: Funny Icebreakers
Let’s be honest: Nothing grabs someone’s attention as much as you saying something funny.
If your icebreaker makes someone laugh, there’s EVERY chance they’ll reply to you.
Now, the problem with funny icebreakers is that, if you use a ‘stock phrase’ she’s probably heard it before. As such, she won’t reply.
And if you go with a funny pickup line, there’s again every chance she’s already heard it before.
This is why funny Tinder icebreakers are so hard to get right. You must be funny – but you must also be original. Otherwise, the girl will think you’ve copied and pasted it, which immediately says you can’t think for yourself. Not cool.
It also helps a LOT if you use a funny icebreaker only if you’re naturally funny. See, the key to a good funny icebreaker is being able to keep the joke going. If your icebreaker is funny but the rest of your replies are lame, she’ll stop replying
Here are some examples of a few funny ice breakers:
“Titanic. Well, that’s the icebreaker outta the way. How are you doing?”
“Thanks for being my 100th match! You win a prize. Wanna find out what it is?”
“I’d message you but my mom always taught me never to talk to strangers.”
“I’ve spent the last week trying to come up with an icebreaker and so far all I’ve got is ‘hey’”
#3: Question Icebreakers
I like question icebreakers because you’re putting the ball in the other persons court straight away and encouraging some proper engagement and interaction.
One thing you can guarantee with a question icebreaker is that you won’t get a boring “hahaha cute” reply that kills the conversation instantly.
However, the trick is to ask a question that will arouse the other persons interest so much that they reply to you. It should also be as original as possible (asking them “if you could live anywhere else in the world right now, where would it be?” is nice and all but it’s been asked so many times that it’s just not original.
Also, it helps if your question is a little out-there, a bit random – and funny.
Here are some examples of questions to ask on Tinder
“Okay, I’m REALLY hungry right now but have only chocolate, jam, butter, mayo and bacon in the fridge. If you were here right now what would you make me out of all that?”
“What would be your idea of a perfect first tinder date?”
“If you had the chance to go to space, would you take it?”
“Come on, be honest – you don’t really want to be on Tinder, do you?”
