Some of the best Hinge openers rely on humor. If you've decided to start with a humorous opening line, don't put too much pressure on yourself to craft a good Hinge opener - you'll have plenty of other chances! Here are some easy conversation starters to inspire your next opening line on Hinge.



If you could have a mythical creature as a pet, which one would you choose?

It's whimsical, it gets the imagination going, and it tells the other person that you're able to think outside the box.



If you could only listen to country music or rap for the rest of your life, which would it be?

The music taste of a potential date is important to figure out, and this opening line is the perfect way to do it without seeming pushy. For a variation on this opening line, you could also ask about the most-played song on their Spotify account.



Describe your best date idea, and I'll describe mine. No holds barred!

This is basically a slightly clever way of saying "What do I have to do to get a first date with you?", but it's also more amusing since date ideas could include anything from bottomless milkshakes to a day-trip to Bali.



Two truths and a lie: I won a watermelon seed spitting contest when I was nine, I've stepped on a nail five different times, and my favorite food is banana ice cream

The trick here is to make the lie seem even more believable than the truths, so don't be shy about the weird and wacky facts you share about yourself!

Not the best texter?

Let us craft the perfect text to charm your way to that date.

In just a second, we'll pinpoint the perfect words for you to have an engaging conversation and not get ghosted.

Never open with "hey". You only have one chance to make a first impression - so you have to make sure that the impression is a strong one! Besides, no one ever knows how to respond to hey. Stand out from the crowd, be bold!



I'm a big outdoors person. What size outdoors person are you?

A wry pun on "big outdoors person" puts a twist on the phrase, while also communicating your hopes of finding someone who shares your interests.



Unpopular opinion: Star Trek is better than Star Wars

What better way to get a light-hearted argument going than to subtly diss one of the greatest Sci-Fi film series of all time?



My perfect date consists of eating Mexican food. What's yours, and why isn't it the same as mine?

You're using your opening line to let the other person know about your interests, but you're also being cheeky by asking why they may not agree with you.



My talents are playing mini golf, and getting kicked out of dog parks for playing mini golf

An opening line like this makes it sound like there's a story to go along with it, which is a good strategy if you want to get a conversation going.

The best Hinge openers aren't just funny; they also encourage a discussion about common interests, an important aspect of Hinge openers. This is why finding out if a potential match has similar interests is a great use of your opening line.



What's your phone background, and why?

Some people choose photos of loved ones, while others have a meme set as their phone's background. Whatever the case, Hinge openers like this will give you a peek at the other person's personality.



What's the weirdest thing you do in your day-to-day life?

Many people love talking about themselves, especially if they know they can make a strong impression. You might as well give them an opportunity to do just that!



If you were a dating coach, what dating advice would you give?

The answer could be helpful, or it could be brutal; it all depends on who you're asking. One thing is for sure, though: they'll be honest!



What would you choose: dropping a deep dish pizza in your lap in front of your crush, or never being able to listen to Taylor Swift again?

Opening lines like these kill two birds with one stone. You get to learn how they handle embarrassment, and it's a fun way to get some valuable intel on their music taste.

Even if your Hinge profile doesn't indicate it, you're probably capable of innumerable cheesy pick up lines. Bonus points if you can come up with some dad jokes too! Dad jokes make for some of the best Tinder openers, they're sure to work on Hinge too.



I can already tell that you have amazing taste in (your gender)

It's a harmless way to compliment yourself, plus it may get your Hinge match interested in playing along for a while.



Did we go to the same high school? Because I think we have chemistry

Some one-liners don't need that much explanation. You're telling the other person that you think they're hot, and hoping they reciprocate.



I need someone who can help tell my future kids the story of how their parents met

Not only are you saying you're looking for a date, but you're also telling them that you want a relationship that lasts for a lifetime. That's actually pretty efficient!



My therapist says I'm afraid of committment, but I bet we could prove him wrong together

Self-deprecation is usually well-recieved on dating apps; even though you're technically pointing out your own flaws, it's also seen as a sign of honesty. Some of the best Tinder openers for guys use self-deprecating humor. Plus, nobody expects you to be perfect on a dating app.
