Curating the perfect Tinder profile is an art. Any Tinder user worthy of a Right Swipe knows that the best profile includes a well-rounded selection of photos and a short but funny bio that makes someone go, "Wow, I’d love to be stuck on a Ferris wheel with this person!" Or, at least, I wouldn’t mind it terribly. If making up jokes isn’t your thing, you should probably put a funny movie quote in your Tinder bio to let potential matches know that you'll get their references and you'll also be down to Netflix and chill.
Besides, what better way to tell if you and your match are actually compatible than a spontaneous pop-culture quiz? If they don’t immediately recognize the iconic one-liner in your bio, you might want to skip the movie and stick to dinner or drinks, or maybe you could use this opportunity to get them acquainted with all things Mean Girls. Really, it’s your call.
If you can’t think of a funny movie quote that best reflects your personality or your list is just way longer than the 500-character limit, you’re in luck. Here are 12 funny movie quotes to include in your Tinder bio.
