And even if that is of course much better than writing “Hey” or using rough pick-up lines or exaggerated compliments, it is still not optimal.
For these reasons, we tend not to recommend sucking something out of your fingers every time and writing these highly personalized messages that are individually tailored to your profile.
If you enjoy this and always come up with something cool, interesting and curious and you have tested that you get 80-90% responses with these messages, then of course you can do it that way.
But if not, then it’s best to simply use one of our brilliant cover texts that we have tested in thousands of matches.
Because we have not only tested and perfected these in thousands of matches, but they are also based on deep psychological mechanisms such as curiosity, so that they simply work unbeatably well.
And curiosity is actually one of the strongest and most effective psychological and subconscious triggers that hardly anyone can escape.
“This man saved a snake from starvation. And you can’t imagine what happened then …”Even if you know very well that it’s mostly just clickbait and often total nonsense …
But still, you usually can’t help but just become curious and then click to satisfy that curiosity.
Or if your favorite series ends with a cliffhanger again and you are almost bursting with curiosity about how it will go on.
And exactly this principle works just incredibly ingenious when it comes to how you should start a conversation on Tinder.
We call this type of first message that leads to such reactions, “cliffhanger”, “clickbait” or also “open loop” opener.
Try them out and you will see that never in your life have you got so many answers as with these texts.
There you will not only get 8 more examples of such ingenious openers, but we will also tell you a few possibilities for each cover text, how you can continue writing after your answer.
(And by the way, did you know that you can now write to women without a match? We’ll tell you how to do that in our article on Tinder Platinum.)
If you use one of our ingenious conversation starter texts, then you have mastered phase 1 with ease. Namely, that you made her curious and got an answer.
Once you have received their attention and an answer, you then move on to phase 2: successfully mastering the chat process.
