Post 6 of 14 in the Tinder Success Series
Tinder has been one of the most used and most famous dating apps for years.
The ranges from people looking for a quick fling to Serious relationships.
It became pretty popular when the app first released a swiping option.
Now, everyone knows that swiping is Tinder’s mark.
But, swiping without a conversation game is 0.
So, here are some ideas on how to start a conversation on Tinder and improve your talk game.
How to Put Your Conversation on Tinder in the Spotlight?
Tinder icebreaker messages
Starting a conversation is always the most difficult thing you have to do with a complete stranger.
Each time when you want to start a conversation with a match on Tinder you feel nervous and excited at the same time.
Nervous because you don’t want to make a bad impression to someone?
And excited because of all the butterflies you have in your stomach if that conversation starts right?
And you don’t know how to continue it.
The best way to avoid both feelings is to start your conversation with some icebreakers messages.
1. A funny message
Let your first message be funny and interesting.
Send to another user a funny gif, and tickle the imagination on the other side of the screen.
A funny message will provide you a good impression, and the person you chat with will ask for more.
Then, continue your conversation.
We’ve made a complete course on how to be funny and how to grab her attention.

2. Show a creative side in the world of messages
Here’s one great name game.
Be creative and unforgettable.
If you’re afraid of being boring, be brave, and show your creative side.
Use some quotes, but stay funny and polite.
Nobody wants to hang out with boring and rude people.
3. Intrigue is a thing
Everyone wants to evoke emotions through messages.
You are seeking for an emotional reaction.
Once you get it, it’s all much easier then.
4. Make online dating propositions
You can always play on the romantic card.
Propose to your match to organize an online dating night by watching the same movie at the same time, or just listen to the same music on a video chat.
Then, talk about the things you have done together.
5. Real interest
Well, this was not exactly what I had in mind, but how cares?
Be really interested in other people’s interests and feelings.
If you are really into somebody, don’t act, be yourself, and let the time works for you 2.
What Do You Need to Know Before You Start Conversation on Tinder?
Before you start chatting with other users, you should know that the key to successful chatting on Tinder starts from setting your profile.
It is really important to leave all the information which Tinder can use to find the perfect match for you.
Besides the basic information you have to tap, always add something more.
For example, when you sign in, upload as many photos as you can (minimum of five photos).
The profile picture should be the prettiest of all the photos because people will like you or dislike you by seeing it.
I know it sounds a little bit superficial, but that’s how Tinder works.
Avoid using too many filters on your photos.
They need to represent who you are.
Try to use different photos, not just selfies.
Post photos while you are doing some sports or your favorite activity.
It’s good to know you are interested in other things.
Post good pictures, bot blurred ones, and pay attention to what is on those pictures, because all the pictures must be valid, and confirmed with authenticity.
If you cannot decide which photo is right for you, you can always use the special feature called Smart Photo.
Here how it works.
Choose to upload a few photos.
When you upload them, Tinder will pick one of them for you by itself.
You just need to approve its selection, and that’s it.
When you add all the photos you want, leave more information about your interests or hobbies.
You can complete the fields like your favorite music, movies, books, sports, animals, places you like to go out to, places you have visited, etc.
All these things will allow your profile to pop up more often, and more members will be able to see it.
Don’t forget to turn on your location, and to choose the desired distance between you and your potential match.
By turning on location, Tinder’s algorithm will send you the potential candidates nearby with who you can start a conversation ASAP.
This is the last step if you want to impress someone and give the final touch.
You have a chance to impress people on Tinder, if your content is funny, amusing, and written with self-confidence.
Everyone likes it.
Try not to sound pessimistic and boring.
It will reject people immediately.
Your Bio mustn’t belong.
Try to show that you are a person worth trying to start a conversation.
Make your content short, but strong.
Sending the right message means guaranteed swiping.
Don’t be too cocky.
People don’t like it, and they can get the wrong feedback impression.
Being adventurous equals being sexy.
Everybody would be interested in your profile if they read what adrenalin sports you like doing or where you go on a weekend trip.
It makes you a good company.
Fake Profiles and Safety
Fake profiles can be easily made on an online dating app.
How could fake profiles be busted?
Well, sometimes the profile picture tells us something.
If you see a profile with just one picture that means two things: the user isn’t active enough or it’s a fake profile.
When people use online dating app such as Tinder, it’s normal they like meeting other members and chatting a lot.
If someone sends you or replies to you with a “reserved” message, it’s probably a bot.
In that case, just skip that profile, and pass on another match.
Be careful because safety never enough.
How Do You Start Conversation on Tinder?
The first step is creating a Tinder account.
The next important step is to arrange your account to have more matches.
It is possible to log in with your Facebook account.
Tinder will automatically match your Facebook account to your Tinder account.
Tinder account can be connected with Instagram, Snapchat, and Spotify accounts, too.
The conversation on Tinder is just swiping in the beginning.
To start chatting, swipe to the right.
And if you don’t want to chat, swipe to the left.
Swiping also means that you like or don’t like a suggested user.
If you two both like each other, you can start chatting using the chatbox.
Otherwise, you won’t be able to send messages.
What different options you can use to start a conversation on Tinder, read in these two sections below.
Basic Features That Can Help You to Start a Conversation on Tinder
These are features you can use for free.
They allow you to have simple conversation with other users.
If you use the basic features, you can’t send a message before you make a match.
You make a match with another user just if you two accept each other.
When the matching process is done, you are free to chat as long as you want.
You can like someone’s profile every 12 hours.
You are authorized to like 100 profiles during these 12 hours.
Using Tinder for free, you can give just one super like.
If you superlike somebody, it means that you are pretty into that user.
Super like is marked with a blue star.
Everybody likes swiping on Tinder.
If you like someone’s profile, swipe to the right.
If you don’t like someone’s profile, swipe to the left.
If you really like someone’s profile, swipe up.
Tinder Pick feature offers different classification of users.
Tinder’s system gets users’ profession, hobbies, interests, and other things, and then it classifies users by categories.
If someone is interested in art, Tinder Pick will give that user a specific name, an artist, for example.
If someone likes photography, that user will be named as a photographer, etc.
You can get it in only a few countries, for now.
You will have to be an active user.
It means that you have to visit your profile every day because this feature refreshes every 24 hours.
Sometimes, our reactions can be more significant than words.
That’s why Tinder proudly offers you this great feature.
Now you can send your reaction instead of words in just one click on the smiley button.
Reactions can be various.
From the most polite to the rudest ones.
These reactions are funny and interesting, so don’t be surprised if you use them so easily.
Let see who has a great sense of humor.
On Tinder Feed, you can see everything people have recently posted.
That can be a status, a photo, or even changes on their profiles.
If you find that content interesting, you can like it, give it a heart, or leave a comment.
You can even start a private chat on the subject of the content.
It really reminds me of Facebook feed and on Instagram post or story, too.
Tinder Video Chat
Also known as Face 2 Face option.
This feature gives you the opportunity to have online dates with other users.
The only condition you two need to be aware of is that you both need to set up this feature before you start to use video chat.
This option can save your time, money, and patience.
But, if your first online date goes well, don’t be afraid to have fun in the real world.
Extra Features That Can Help You to Improve Your Conversation on Tinder
These features that come around with paid membership.
All these features can help you to find more matches, and to start the best conversation ever.
Boost your profile
Your profile will be more visible to other members by boosting it.
Super Boost option
This feature will put your profile in the spotlight, and your profile will be seen more than a hundred times.
This is a great option if you usually make mistakes.
If you like someone’s profile accidentally, you can remove your like by using the option rewind.
Don’t waste your time by searching right guys all by yourself.
That’s why you have to fill in your information the most precisely because it’s all up to Tinder then.
This feature is related to Tinder Places. It is made to protect the LGBT population or transgender population.
If you are in the wrong place at the wrong time, Tinder will send you an alert.
I need to underline that this feature is available in the States for now.
It represents the other safety option.
As a matter of fact, Noonlight is a safety app that helps you to alarm the safety service immediately if something goes wrong.
The photo verification allows you to see if the profiles you want to have video chats with are real or fake profiles.
You have to make a few realtime selfies before you start chatting, and Tinder will check them with the photos you’ve already posted.
If your face corresponds to photos before, you will pass the authorization process.
Swipe Night is a game that you can play with other users.
It works by swiping on all sides.
You swipe for likes, don’t likes or superlikes.
When you finish your swiping, you will be matched with another user that has similar swipes as you do.
The name of this feature tells you everything.
This option is a trap for other users.
It allows you to see who has seen your messages but hasn’t responded to them yet.
The other catch is that those users don’t know that.
Be careful, guys, the receipt must be paid.
This is a great way to meet more people with the same interests as yours.
If you decide to use this feature, you will get badges that show you are planning to attend some festivals in the nearest future.
People who are attending the same festival as you are will be connected to you.
You will all be marked with badges in your right corner of the profile.
This feature is similar to Tinder Passport.
It is like its upgraded version.
Tinder Places option shows users where you were in the last 30 days.
It shows clubs, bars, restaurants, even classes you attended last month, and vice versa.
This option can be great because you can meet people with the same taste as yours.
Don’t worry about your safety. Tinder places option won’t show your location in real-time.
You can choose the places you would like to be on your map.
Tinder will show just the same places that you and other users visited.
And the last, but the most important: Tinder will show just public locations (locations that are on the map), not your home address or something like that.
This feature is similar to Tinder’s suggestion.
By using its algorithm, Tinder will show you four profiles that you will probably like.
This option gives us a hint that somebody or something has got some priority.
Well, that’s pretty true.
The members who represent your best matches are on the top of your priority list when they leave you likes.
The others who are not on the priority list are a few places below the.
Message before Match
Many users are thrilled with this option.
Maybe because it is a little bit logical to chat a few words with someone before you add him/her to your list of matches.
In the past, it was impossible to chat with people without adding them as your matches.
Now, it is possible.
You can send people short messages, with limited characters, before you add them as your matches.
This is also a great option if you change your mind meanwhile, during the conversation with that person.
But, there is a catch.
If the other user doesn’t like you or your short message, you won’t be able to continue chatting with that user.
Shame, I know, but that’s the way it is.
If you subscribe to this feature, you can see who the most active user was in the last 24 hours.
At the same time, you can see who wanted to start a conversation with you.
With this feature, you will be able to see who liked your profile.
You can see people who are already your matches, but also, you can see the other ones who you haven’t accepted as your matches yet.

You just need to leave your .edu email address, and to do the verification process after that.
Bravo for the Tinder team!
Play on the most popular social network card.
Ask your matches to follow them on Instagram, and allow them to show their other side.
Sometimes, people don’t manage on online dating sites, and they need help.
Don’t be strict, and relax them a little bit by showing them that you are interested in them no matter what social app.
In the beginning, you won’t feel the necessity for other Tinder packages.
The basic one will be enough.
But, if you want to make more contact with Tinder, the best choice will be to upgrade it.
You can choose between three packages: Tinder Plus, Tinder Gold, and Tinder Platinum.
By upgrading your Tinder profile you will have more matches, more dates, and more chances to meet the person you’ve always wanted.
Tinder offers you many, many basic, extra, and super features that you can use if you want to start a conversation.
Sometimes it can be confusing and tiring.
More tiring than confusing because Tinder always can offer you more than you can use.

With all its features and interesting hacks, it is on the top of the online dating site list.
All you have to do is to put all your qualities on the table, and your chatting can begin.
