Tips for starting a conversation on Tinder

Now that you understand how to start a new chat, you may find some useful tip for starting a conversation on Tinder and further attract the other person’s interest.

The first thing you can do is access the profile of the person you intend to contact and carefully analyze their description. Also, since Tinder allows you to connect Spotify and Instagram, you can find out any common interests and other useful information to be able to start a conversation in the best way.

To view the personal details of the person you want to talk to, go to the section Compatibility of your Tinder account and tap on his photo. Now, if you are using the Tinder app, tap on the profile picture, to view any description of the person in question and the connected social networks. If, on the other hand, you are using Tinder from a computer, you can see all the information of the selected person in the sidebar on the left.

Another thing you can do is browse any other published images, to find out if he has visited any interesting city or place, leveraging this topic to start the conversation.

If, on the other hand, from the photos and the description of the person of your interest you were unable to find any interesting ideas to break the ice, I suggest you start a conversation avoiding trivial phrases or unoriginal messages, such as a simple “Hello!” or “How are you?“. By doing so, at best, you risk getting the same message as a response and being back to square one.
