Tinder has opened the door for new opportunities, but some dudes close them real quick by going out on a limb and asking crazy questions they'd probably never ask if they were with the girl IRL. Online dating is a hard thing, and it's good to take risks by being original, but if questions about sex is as original as you can get, sorry man, you're probably going to get blocked pretty quick. If you're chatting it up with a girl on Tinder, that's half the work — at least you matched up with them so they already think you're attractive. It's just up to you to play your cards right and not mess it up from that point on. So, fellas, here are some examples of questions never to ask during a Tinder conversation. Take things slow, be funny, and it'll pay off in the long run. Here are 10 Questions You Should Never Ask on Tinder. (But can at least laugh at.)
Leather or sporty collar?
Well, damn. Tell her how you really feel then!
Make sure they have "science" as an interest before asking this one.
Choose science-based questions wisely, your originality could go unappreciated.
Do you like whales?
Ha. Funny, but this will get you no where, fast.
Can I taste?
Rookie move. And even if she agreed to it, you probably weren't the only guy on Tinder to have done it, so don't think you're special.
Too quick, fella. Don't let one head control the other.
Do you like to have a blast?
Blast.* Always have to read the fine print.
How long have you been killing animals?
You get it? Because their name is "Hunter"? Jokes about people's names are rarely ever original: they've probably heard it a hundred times before middle school.
Nice bum where you from?
At least it rhymes.
This classic line has given guys a bad rap everywhere. And it rarely works on someone you've just met online.
If I were a watermelon...
If you really were a watermelon, you'd be left outside to rot with that line. Save it until a few conversations in... too soon, too soon.
