In an era where meeting people in person is temporarily over (thanks, coronavirus) more and more people are turning online to meet potential partners.

Anyone who’s been on a dating app knows the routine all too well. Swipe right, match, send/receive a message, have a short conversation before it slowly dies out and you never speak again. 

Using a platform that depends on chat game, it is important to talk about something that sparks interest, while also trying to rule out that they are an axe murderer. 

People go on dating apps for different reasons, so straight out asking “why are you on here?” doesn’t always yield the most truthful answer. The questions you ask can help you figure out what your matches are on dating apps for and whether or not you would be a good match IRL.

Dating apps offer limited information about each match, but whatever is there should be taken advantage of.

In a bid to help you stand out from plethora of people sending the driest pick up line out there, “hey”, we have compiled the best lines to help land you a date.

  1. “Dogs or cats?”

A simple would-you-rather question can say a lot about someone and can spark a passionate debate.

2. “What’s the weirdest message you’ve received on here from someone?”

This prompts an opportunity to exchange some funny/cringe tinder stories, because let’s face it, everyone has one.

3. “Drink of choice?”

This is an easy way to find out a lot about someone with one question; check out this article of what your favourite drink means. This line is also a perfect transition to asking them out for their drink of choice. 

4. “What’s your best isolation tip?”

There’s no time like the present to ask this question and it’s a great way to find out about someone’s hobbies without blatantly asking “what do you do in your spare time?”, which everyone has heard in every ice breaker conversation ever.

5. “If I ask you to coffee, drinks or a movie, which are you most likely to say yes to?”

This question helps determine what the other person is on the app for. Drinks means they are more likely to want something casual and coffee means it’s more likely they want a relationship. If they say movie, it can go either way. If it’s the cinema want to see where this goes, but a movie at their place means they want to hookup.

6. “Know how much a polar bear weighs? Well, it’s enough to break the ice. Hi!”

Messaging first can be anxiety inducing so put a smile on their face and let them lead the conversation with this line. 

7. “What’s the craziest thing you’ve done?”

Here’s an easy way to figure out how ‘wild’ someone is and can be followed up with talk about bucket lists, life goals to find out how similar they are to you. 

8. “So, tell me about…”

Pick something on their profile that you find interesting and get them to tell you about it, it’s really that easy. They will like the fact you’ve taken the time to actually look at their profile and they’ll find it easy to talk about themselves, just keep asking questions.
