The other day, I thought I saw the man of my dreams on Tinder. He was tall, had a motorcycle, and was covered in tattoos. Come to think of it, he was probably the man of my nightmares. But either way, we matched, and I couldn’t wait to message him.
However, I was so nervous that I didn’t know what to say to this guy on Tinder. So I said this: Ayyyyy, daddy! Needless to say, hedid not respond.
It’s tricky to figure out what to message someone to actually spark a good conversation. I typically just say hi, which leads to an incredibly boring, go-nowhere talk about nothing. On the other hand, though, if you say too much, you’re coming off too strong, and sometimes, jokes like Ayyyyy, daddy! don’t land.
So if you’re stuck on how to break the ice on a dating app (like I am, apparently) here are some of the best Tinder openersto use when you suddenly forget how to speak because that tattooed guy on a motorcycle has you at a loss for words.
