Wading into the deep and dark waters of Tinder takes courage and strength, but if you can survive the treacherous journey into the kingdom of matches, a treasure trove of the most brilliant pun pick-up lines known to humankind awaits you there.

Suppose you have any experience with the massively popular hookup—er, dating app Tinder. In that case, you know that, in most cases, it’s where humor and any semblance of personality come to die. Tinder pick-up lines and funny Tinder openers are known to be notoriously bland and are usually just abbreviated phrases. 

When the rare and precious moment comes along, and someone delivers the best puns that are smoother than a Piña Colada, it’s worth celebrating. The rest of the time... Let’s just say there aren't enough hands in the world for the number of facepalms we’d like to do because of the “best” Tinder pick-up lines.

Check out the best and worst puns and Tinder jokes we managed to scrape from the very bottom of Tinder and vote for the ones that made you laugh—or cringe—the hardest.

Do Tinder Jokes Really Work?

As with many things in dating, there’s no definite, one-fit-all answer to this question. The quality of your jokes matters, but so does the matching sense of humor of the person on the other side. Yes, people can have different senses of humor, and there’s no telling if yours matches with the person you swiped right until you have a conversation. 

But if things do line up, Tinder jokes can be a great way to break the ice. Let’s face it: having to flirt online is already tricky enough, so a good laugh right off the bat can help significantly. Funny Tinder profiles can be a good tell. If they dedicated time to come up with jokes for the bio, there’s a good chance they’ll appreciate your humorous opener.

At least there's hope for single people that some people really are that easy!

How Do You Come Up With Funny Tinder Pick-up Lines?

If you liked this person, chances are you already know what they say about themselves on their dating profile. Use this knowledge to come up with a humorous opening line. If you find puns funny, Tinder is known for their excessive use, so you can try one, too.

However, puns aren’t the easiest type of humor, so make sure yours isn't an example of a bad pun. Most importantly, whatever jokes you employ shouldn’t be offensive or make anyone feel bad.

I'm just going to be honest (even though I'm sure it will get down voted left and right). This is very typical of tinder. Since girls tend to get a lot more attention then guys...they don't try at all. And they expect the guy to be hilariously creative and quick witted all the time. I get a good amount of attention of Tinder, but it's really hard to have a convo with a girl. Typically all you get is one word or extremely simple answers with nothing to go off or asking and reciprocal questions. I actually kinda like how she got put on the spot and failed..that's what gals do to guys on tinder constantly. I'm not saying these girls aren't really interesting in real life...just for some reason they can't be on Tinder, and it makes it annoying.

OK, I've never done Tinder but am enjoying some of these. It looks like these guys are using a pun flow-chart. The first item at the top of the chart is, "Can I do some sort of pun using a 'D'?"
