Dating online is fun and you can do it from the comfort of your home. However, it comes with the unwritten caveat that there is not much of an impression you can make other than your opener. That’s a lot of pressure, isn’t it? After all, no one wants to lose out on their match. Fear not, I am here to help you with my expertise in funny Tinder questions.
I have spent enough time on Tinder by now to know that it is difficult to strike up a conversation at times. In this day and age, Tinder is not just something lonely people use. The competition is tough and how things will proceed with your match all depends on the first impression you make.
37 Funny Tinder Questions Your Matches Will Love And Respond To
Here’s what I think must have happened – a cutie hasn’t responded to you in a while and you just checked your DM a few seconds ago, still nothing. What is the next logical step? Fire up Google looking for funny Tinder opener questions and you stumbled upon this article.
Maybe you are new to the online dating space and that is why you are here. In that case, before we move to the actual questions, I have a suggestion in advance – do NOT open with a compliment because that can come off as superficial. Even if your match is dead-drop gorgeous, try to open with something amusing and witty and then drop compliments.
AH! wait…wait…one last tip – be subjective as well. You cannot start with a steak joke when your match is a vegan…so please do your due diligence with these and have fun with them. Personalize your openers by understanding what your match is into and don’t send a “Hey”. *sighs*

However, if you give up sleep then you lose out on the experience of waking up to coffee.
12. Would you rather be married to a 10 with a bad personality or a 6 with an amazing personality?
Preferences. Preferences. Preferences. You can’t be just as funny as you’re hot and the other way around. Some people prioritize looks; others want a strong personality.

I think it’s taking a shower every day.
