Quarantine has never been so much fun. Dating apps such as Hinge, Bumble, Tinder, and many more require more skill than ever.
See the following 5 most effective dating app lines this year:
1) “I love your taste in music! Have you ever seen (artist name here) live?”
Tinder and Bumble both have the wonderful feature of allowing users to select and display music on their profiles based on the tracks they play on Spotify. If you’re looking for a great way to connect with someone, music is always a wonderful start. You get the added bonus of potentially making a date out of the conversation later, too.
2) “What shows are you in to right now?”
This is a great way to get to know someone you’ve just matched with. Or, on Bumble, it’s simply a great way to connect with those who may have similar interests to you. Understanding what makes their favorite media special to them will also give you a better idea of their personality and interests, letting you spark that deeper connection.
3) “Two truths and a lie, let’s go!”
This may seem a bit basic, but on apps like Hinge, research in successful connections has shown that this will actually work in your favor. It gives you both the ability to provide interesting information about yourselves. Additionally, it’s creative while allowing you to clear up potential misconceptions you may have come to by looking at their dating profile.
4) “If you went on a date with someone, what’s something that would make you want to sneak out the bathroom window?”
Another line that sounds silly, but using it on apps like Tinder where the individuals often quickly match and meet is great. The answer to this question will give you an idea of what might be a major turnoff for them, and it lets you see if you’re compatible with them on that level. After all, if they answer something like “if they put pineapple on their pizza, I’m out” you know they might not be the one.
5) “Based on your profile, we have a lot in common. Are you doing anything Friday night?”
On apps like Hinge, this has a decent success rate. While some individuals want to spend time talking and building a connection before they meet you, others really do enjoy the straightforwardness. Of course, you’ll want to suggest something simple like Starbucks, but it’s a great way to start.
