Attractive woman looking at mobile phone and laughing at clever tinder pick up line

You’d be forgiven for thinking that pick-up lines no longer work. But the truth is they’re still a great way of striking up a conversation. Relying on short, bland messages like, ‘hey’ or ‘what are you up to?’ to get a conversation moving isn’t the best idea. 

These are typical messages that most people receive all of the time, so it’s not likely to grab any attention. In fact, some people wouldn’t even bother replying to that kind of message as there isn’t much to reply to. 

It helps if you come up with different pick-up lines for each person so it makes them feel like you took the time to let them know that you’re interested, rather than recycling the same ones. Despite that, you don’t want to send a message that will send them running in the other direction because it’s a little bit too forward. 

Your best bet is to send something that’s funny yet thoughtful. If it’s a message that they don’t receive very often, it’s likely to win their curiosity from the very beginning. And who knows where it could lead to.

If you’re trying to rack your brain for a good pick up line but you’re coming up empty-handed, here’s a list of some clever tinder pick up lines that will most certainly be more interesting than the usual conversation starters. Give them a go!

20 Clever Tinder Pick-Up Lines You Can Really Use

I’m not a photographer, but I can picture you and I together.

Are you a bank loan? You certainly have my interest.

Are you the bottom of my laptop? Because you’re hot and I’m getting nervous.

Remember that pick-up lines are just a bit of fun to start a conversation and not everyone is a fan of them. That’s okay too, because you’ll know by someone’s response if there’s potential for something to happen between you two. 

Hopefully, by using these clever tinder pick up lines, it will be a lot easier for you to start a conversation and get things moving. The main thing is be considerate and respectful, but also have a little fun. Don’t send pick up lines that could be considered creepy or insensitive. Use your common sense and don’t say anything that you wouldn’t want someone else to read. 

Also, if you ever tire of using the same pick-up lines, then you can always get creative and make up your own. For example, if they mention in their bio that they enjoy playing tennis or reading books then is there a pun that you can think of that would work well? Or take a look at their name and see if you can incorporate it into a funny, thoughtful, pick up line that will be sure to make them appreciate the effort you’ve put in.

You can have a lot of fun with it. Good luck!
