Note: The following article has been updated on May 4, 2016. Read on, for new and improved pick up lines!
We’ve all been single. It’s a mixture of fun, frustration, excitement, loneliness, and adventure. Sometimes it can be good to be single and play the field to see what’s out there. Other times you wish there were someone to share your nights with and talk about your interests to.
Whether you are old school in your dating or you use social media and online platforms, it’s a similar game to find and attract people of the opposite gender. That’s why we’ve compiled the absolute best Tinder pick up lines that have proven themselves to work time and time again.
Of course, having good material is never a replacement for being good material: Be interested, and be interested in what they have to say. Be able to laugh (especially at yourself). Be respectful. But you know that already, and that all comes later. The first thing, of course, is to get someone’s attention in a way that communicates who you are and makes them interested in that person. That’s where we come in.
Try out the pick up lines below and let us know how they work for you. We hope you can find that they at least break the ice and get a laugh if they are funny or silly.
“I like the bad-boy types. Generally the guy I’m attracted to is the guy in the club with all the tattoos and nail polish. He’s usually the lead singer in a punk band and plays guitar. But my serious boyfriends are relatively clean-cut, nice guys. So it’s strange.” – Megan Fox
Pick Up Tips
Now, let’s get into the exciting part, going through the list of pick up lines that you can use on your new girl or guy crush. First, we’ll provide some tips and tricks on how to write your own creative and unique pick up lines that will represent your true personality.
Be Funny – Almost every one of the pick up lines below is funny in some sort. Most girls or guys respond to humor more than anything else. Finding someone who’s funny is great on many levels: Not only does it indicate you’ll be able to cheer them up, but it suggests you have an ability to laugh at yourself, you don’t take yourself too seriously, you aren’t too stern, and you’re just generally fun to be around. First impressions are usually better when you have a bit of humor in them and remain funny throughout the conversation. Even if you’re not naturally funny, try to think of a funny opening line and remain light hearted. No one wants to go from introduction to a serious conversation.
Be Yourself – This may seem obvious, but there are so many people that aren’t themselves when they initially meet or chat with a woman or guy. If you’re naturally shy, that’s not a problem, remain confident and make sure that you focus on what makes you, you. You mainly don’t want to project some version of yourself that you can’t deliver: you’ll spend all your energy in the conversation trying to keep up a front, and you won’t be able to enjoy yourself at all.
Be Confident – Every guy and girl is attracted to confident people. Even if you’re not naturally confident, follow the motto of fake it till you make it. Don’t doubt yourself and be confident on who you are, your thoughts, and your interests. This will help you connect with people and let them know a bit about yourself. If you don’t feel confident right away, just remember these words: “Everybody’s faking it.” If you’re nervous or uncertain, it’s more than likely that the other person is just as nervous and uncertain—if not more so! The thing about confidence is that if you fake it long enough, eventually you won’t have to fake it any more.
Be Respectful – Both men and women on Tinder are putting a lot out there—putting themselves in a very public place trying to make a connection. Don’t be a jerk and don’t come on too strong.
Keep it Casual – Lastly, make sure that whatever you talk about, that it remains casual. No one likes to go into a serious conversation right from the start.
Be Persistent – Not every attempt to connect with someone one Tinder is going to pay off. That’s fine. There’s a lot of people out there, and if this person isn’t a good connection, you don’t need to force anything; the next person may be much better for you.

Pick Up Your 2016
‘The times, they are a-changin'” – Bob Dylan
With changing times come new pickup lines, and given that Tinder is as persistent as it’s ever been–if not a smidge more reliable for scoring you that date, what better a place to look at what lines are working? The same rules still apply–be funny, be approachable, be yourself, and be respectful. With more and more people using Tinder to hook up with other like minds, your persistence is only going to matter more. No longer an outlier limited to urban crowds, Tinder is everywhere. You don’t need to rethink your game, but it might be time to step it up.
We’ve got a little bit of funny, a little bit of (endearingly) dorky, and a little bit of loving. Give these a gander, and see if they float with your personality.
- Thank God I’m wearing gloves, or you’d be too hot to handle.
- On a scale of 1 to America, how free are you tonight?
- I know this profile is fake, but can I get the number of the model you used in your pics?
- You, with all those curves! Me, without any brakes!
- Can I borrow a quarter? I want to give my mom a call and let her know I met the girl of my dreams.
- There must be something wrong with my eyes. They seem to be stuck on you!
- Nothing fixes a bad day, like seeing a pretty girl smile. Will you smile for me?
- Are you ready to talk, gorgeous? I can only take so much flirting from a distance.
- I’m curious: what does an angel put on her resume?
- Today is your lucky day. I’m going to give you the satisfaction of turning me down. Go ahead. I dare you.
- Who says men don’t ask for directions? Because I need help; I’m getting lost in your eyes.
- Are you an ideal amount of red phosphorous? I’m a wooden stick. Looks like we’re a match!
- If you were a triangle, you’d be acute one.
- Titanic. That’s my icebreaker. What’s up?
- Phew! I almost swiped left and had a heart attack. Saved at the last minute!

- Quick: The Notebook or Sleepless in Seattle?
- I hope you don’t mind cheesy pick-up lines, because if you were a fruit, you’d be a fineapple.
Let us know if you have any other pick up lines that you’ve heard. These can be good ones (ones that have worked for or on you) that you would like to add to the list. Or they can be horrible ones that you don’t know what the person was thinking. Sometimes, we can learn more from what one person has done wrong than for one a hundred people have done right.
