Hilarious pick-up lines for Tinder

Line: “I was feeling a bit off today, but one look at your profile and I’m totally turned on…”

Why we love it: The most successful pickup lines on Tinder are flattering, but not too forward. This opening line is a fun, flirty way to kickstart a conversation. 

Line: “I’m not a meteorologist, but I have a feeling that tonight’s going to be wet.”

Why we love it: Forward pick-up lines can be a hit or miss, but this tongue-in-cheek conversation starter (with a ’90s feel) is sure to kickstart some sexual tension.

Line: “I’m vaxxed and waxed. How should we celebrate?”

Why we love it: Harness the empowerment of Shot Girl Summer with this fun TikTok reference.  And while the waxing part doesn’t have to be literal, it’s all about the energy of a hot vax summer.

Cheeky pick-up lines for Bumble

Line: “Let’s cut to the chase. Where are we going on our first vacay together?”

Why we love it: Travel is one of the easiest conversation starters, with almost every dating profile featuring a snapshot or two of a past vacation. This fun question will let that cutie start daydreaming about your first getaway together. When they reciprocate the question, you can answer with one of these hidden gems across Canada

Line: “My mom always told me to follow my dreams. What’s your Instagram?”

Why we love it: Cheesy? Absolutely! But online dating is only successful when you make the move to get the conversation going outside of the dating app itself. Following one another on Instagram is another way to learn a bit more about the other person. 

Line: “Just saying, I think our dogs would love a park playdate.”

Why we love it: Dog parents love including their four-legged fur baby in their dating profiles and this line can be a great segue into an impromptu meetup for both of your pups’ evening walk.

Other attention-grabbing lines

Line: “I dare you to send me the last YouTube video you watched.”

Why we love it: This unique opening line is something that you don’t see often on dating apps, but it’s actually a really interesting conversation starter that gets the ball rolling on a fun game of truth or dare.

Line: “If I Venmo you $500 right now, what would you spend it on?”

Why we love it: You can learn a lot about a person’s interests and priorities with this opening line. Bonus points if they say they’ll spend that money on an epic date for the two of you or as a donation to one of their favourite charities. 


Line: “Who would you rather be stuck in an elevator with…”

Why we love it: This prompt is a fun alternative to the overdone “two truths and a lie” opener. 

Feel free to customize this line with references to their favourite celebrities or characters from the movies or TV shows that they included in their dating bio.
