Top10.com Staff
15 Pick Up Lines
Navigating the world of online dating can feel like a minefield of missed connections and awkward silences. The key to turning a match into a date lies in the art of conversation.

To help you stand out in a sea of matches, we’ve compiled a list of conversation starters that will actually get you replies! Whether you’re looking for a creative opening line, or to keep the conversation flowing, these one-liners are your ticket to a great conversation. You may even want to try out some of your own on eharmony or Match after reading these!

For the friendly:

  • "What’s the best book you’ve read recently? I need recommendations!"
  • "I’m on a mission to find the best coffee shop. Got any favorites?"
  • "Seen any good movies or shows lately? I need some new additions to my watchlist."

For the romantic:

  • "Do you believe in fate, or should we make our own luck?"
  • "Tell me, what’s something small that always makes you smile?"
  • "If you could have dinner with any fictional character, who would it be?"

Are you more the friendly or romantic type? Which would you use on your first match (on Match)? Or maybe you're more the daring type... 👀

For the daring:

  • "What’s your most controversial opinion?"
  • "If you had to choose only one, would you pick truth or dare?"
  • "What’s a dream you’ve never told anyone about?"
  • "What’s something you’ve always wanted to try but haven’t yet?"

For the cheesy:

  • "Do you believe in love at first message, or should I type again?"
  • "If you were a fruit, you’d be a fineapple. Got any quirky jokes?"
  • "Are you as tired of the same old small talk as I am?"
  • "Do you know what my shirt is made of? Boyfriend/girlfriend material."


Now is the time to break the ice and initiate engaging, memorable conversations. And to make sure they keep going past the first few messages! Give these a try at eharmony and let us know how the date goes 😉
