You Won't Believe These Hilarious Tinder Pickup Lines Actually Worked

Ah, Tinder, you strange and hilarious app. Tinder is basically an online dating site that's not meant to be used to find Mr. Right as much as it is used for finding Mr. Right Now. Basically, it's a hookup site—not that there's anything wrong with that—so first impressions mean everything. A great picture might get you a second look (or a swipe right, in this case), but it's the chat sessions where the magic really happens. There are a lot of guys competing for not very many women (bots don't count), so if you're a guy, you're going to want to say something suave and creative right off the bat to get her attention. 

What's your go-to pickup line? If you don't have one, there are a few unorthodox suggestions on this list that you might want to give a try. Even though they sound a bit "out there," they actually worked! Sure beats "What's your sign?" or "Come here often?" There's no guarantee that you'll get dates thanks to these lines, but we can't rule it out, either. Good luck, and have fun out there!

So what was it about his profile picture that made her swipe right? Maybe she's just really into trucks?

There's smooth, and then there's S-M-O-O-T-H. I think we all know where this guy falls on the smoothness spectrum.

Copy, Paste, Score

The best part about this one is that it can be used over and over again. Why make her feel special when you can just copy and paste your clever line an infinite number of times?

"Lemme smash" actually worked? OK, this one isn't so much about his smooth pickup line as it is about her low standards.

Nothing says, "Let's have sexy times" quite like joking around about farm animals. These jokes are pretty fowl
