What's The Best First Message To Send A Woman On Tinder? Women Reveal Their Favorites

By

On season two of Master of None, Aziz Ansari's character Dev Shah believes he's found the ultimate pickup line to send to women on dating apps: "Going to Whole Foods, want me to pick you up anything?" It's sweet, simple, and just weird enough to actually work. Except, well, now your Tinder inbox probably is filled with a lot of messages about shopping for organic produce. If you're reading this and wondering what the best first message is to send a woman on Tinder, you're in luck — because I asked 10 about their all-time favorite opening lines.

Each of the messages below is creative, funny, and bold in its own unique way, but they all share one important thing: They're a little more thoughtful than saying, "Hey, what's up?"

Let's be real for a second. You know that's a lame line. I know it's a lame line. She definitely thinks it's a lame line. And you're way better than that, aren't you? It takes 10 seconds to come up with something more interesting than that, I promise.

Feeling stuck? Here's some inspiration. Here's some more inspiration. Or try these. Or these. Or those.

Or... steal one of these lady-approved lines below.

The line:

You look like a girl the Rolling Stones would write a song about.

Why she liked it:

"It's unique, and I like the Stones!"

— Rose, 24

The line:

Will you marry me?

Why she liked it:

"It's just really attention-grabbing. Boldness is a trait I admire quite a lot, and it takes a bold person to ask someone to marry you right off the bat. I've received no fewer than six marriage proposals on various dating apps — mostly Tinder and JSwipe. I never know if it's a joke. One time, I met up with a guy and he tried to introduce me to his family on the first date."

— Alana, 25

The line:

I just stepped on a house centipede and I think I'm going to die. This isn't relevant to you but it just happened so I kind of can't think of anything else??

Why she liked it:

"It was just this weird, funny moment that I don't think was meant to be a line. (But honestly, if that didn't happen, and she just made that up and went with it, I'm still impressed.) It made me laugh and gave us something unusual to talk about."

— Brittney, 27

The line:

If we dated, what would our couple name be?

Why she liked it:

"It was definitely a stand-out among the 'Hey, what's up?' messages that 95 percent of guys send. I think it showed off his sense of humor really nicely! It was well-played and not a line that most guys could pull off, given the whole name situation (his name is Francesco and mine is Francesca). I thought it was pretty clever that he saw an opportunity and went with it."

— Francesca, 21

The line:

I say we just skip the formalities for now and be honest. What are you looking for?

Why she liked it:

"If you're getting boring messages, at least you can repurpose them for social media."

— Lara, 24

The line:

A tic-tac-toe board made of text with one X in it.

Why she liked it:

"It was cute and lighthearted! Nothing like a good intellectual competition to see if a man is worthy of my time."

— Julia, 19

The line:

You look like a sexy minx mixed with a snow bunny. What’s good girl?

Why she liked it:

"Honestly, I’m so pale and I’m always so insecure about it! The fact that somebody liked that trait in me was kind of refreshing. And he was a totally nice guy. Not the guy for me, but definitely just a funny, nice guy."

— Shelby, 23

The line:

Hey angel, do you know the reasons why we look up to the sky?

Why she liked it:

"My profile says, 'I love One Direction more than I'll probably ever love you,' so the best opening lines I've ever gotten are the guys that play off of it. (This line is from their song 'Hey Angel.') Gotta have that sense of humor."

— Jen, 26

The line:

F*ck me if I'm wrong, but dinosaurs still exist, right?

Why she liked it:

"It's funny."

— Alina, 19

The line:

Going to Whole Foods. Want me to bring you anything?

Why she liked it:

"To be honest, Master of None is the one Aziz Ansari show I haven't watched, so I was like, 'LOL, what?' I thought it was a pretty bold one-liner. After I found out the reference, I was impressed."

— Soraya, 22

I guess it's a classic for a reason.
