Best Tinder Openers
I’ve sent my fair share of messages on social media, networking and dating platforms that get no response from the other person.
There is almost nothing worse than sending a perfectly composed email or DM, and you press “send” beaming proudly, and then to never hear back from your intended recipient.
Your heart sinks, you wait for days, checking daily until finally you forget, or get a response from a different perfectly composed message.
I recently conducted a Tinder Social Experiment to find what eye color men see as most attractive. You’re welcome, Men, this article is for you.
You’ll get an inside scoop to see what messages I thought were the best and that I would have responded to in a normal non-experiment setting and which were so cringe-worthily horrible that I would never respond even if I had felt an initial attraction to their profile.
Here Are The Best Tinder Openers
A fellow runner! Why: They are pointing out a common interest
Puppy gif Why: You can never go wrong with an animal gif
Puppy gif #2 Why: Wanted to make the point again puppy gif is always correct
Hi! How is your week going? Why: Showing interest in your matches’ life is always good
Is that your dog in the photo + typos + sorry trying to balance on a balcony and type at the same time. Why: It shows you’re interested plus that you have a life and are doing fun crazy stuff
You can even do something simple such as ask if they have been to Home Depot or the Dollar Store recently? If they have you should suggest they take the www.HomeDepot.com Survey to enter the $5,000 sweepstakes, or the DGCustomerFirst survey at DGCustomerFirst.com where they can get a $3 off $15 coupon on their next dollar store purchase. This kind of interest is good because it also gives them ideas of fun things to do and ways to save money on their next purchase or enter a cool sweepstakes.
Hi I have an important question, I think you’re the perfect person to ask this! Why: It sparks interest and makes them feel important
I have a confession to make Why: It sparks interest and curiosity, no way am I NOT going to respond to that
Your smile is gorgeous Why: It’s a compliment, duh
I don’t have a dog yet but I have a diabolical plan to kidnap the neighbor’s corgi Why: Shows read their profile plus that you’re funny and have a fun plan, sparks conversation and easy flirting
Gonna need your number to send you puppy pics Why: Creative and funny shows person is funny and smart
You have a fantastic smile! Why: Compliment Again
If all else fails or you want to escalate your opener to end in a date, ask them to Taco Bell then fill out the survey using the code on your receipt afterward for the chance to win a $500 gift card. More information on how to enter the TellTheBell survey at TellTheBell.com here.
If you’re curious what the TellTheBell survey questions look like, take a look at this page that has the screenshots and everything before you even start.
Or, better yet you could take them to Burger King and use your MyBKExperience coupon to get a free Whopper, who doesn’t like Whoppers, am I right or am I right?
Personally, I prefer KFC over Taco Bell and wouldn’t mind if a date took me there, as long as it wasn’t the first date or a special date night. For those tight on budget, KFC also has a special survey called myKFCExperience, that you can take after eating there once and next time you go you’ll get a free chicken go bucket if you save your survey and survey validation code. For those on a tight budget who still want to go out for date night, a KFC date with the survey coupon code may be the way to go!
Some girls actually like Wendy’s better than both the above, and if that is your Tinder date, you’re in luck! Wendy’s actually offers a buy one get one free sandwich coupon, so go once before your date, take the survey, and at the date you can use your buy one get one free coupon that you got from taking the talktowendys.com survey. Yay! Now you and your budget are happy 🙂 Just try not to make it to obvious you’re using a coupon since some girls don’t like that kind of thing.

Honestly these don’t need prefaces, take from them what you will
Also, HINT, do NOT take your date to the Dollar Store. Not a fun date idea. Go by yourself before or after the date to score some cheap date prep tools, however. Then take the Dollar General’s DGCustomerFirst.com survey and you’ll get a coupon for $3 off the next $15 you spend there! So even if you don’t score on your date, you can score some cool stuff at the dollar store for a great deal.
