It’s no lie that online dating can be both a curse and a blessing. You slid right, they slid right, what now? Choosing the perfect opening pickup line for a Tinder or Bumble conversation can seem like a huge pressure. You don’t want to look cheesy or like you’re too impatient, just a simple “hey!” Is boring and uninspired.
A good Tinder or Bumble icebreaker usually comes in the form of an open question or a joke that can easily lead to a fun conversation. It saves you the embarrassment of meeting people through a dating app and sets you up for success in Bumble or Tinder!
