Whether it's a terrible opening gif, a weird choice of emoji or just a bad chat up line, it's easy to get the opening line wrong when it comes to starting a conversation on Tinder.

However, once a while (and it really is very rare), someone gets it right and actually makes us laugh. So, these are our favourites for you to enjoy and steal for yourself...

Some dos and don'ts on Tinder

Do...

•Introduce yourself and be polite (e.g. 'Hi there. This was a nice surprise! I'm a lawyer and live in London. How about you?')

•Comment nicely on one of their photos (ie 'You look lovely in the photo where you are in the blue shirt')

•Be patient. Tinder may not be the number-one thing in their life.

Don't...

•Be monolectic. Saying a simple, "hi", "hello," or "whassup," makes you easy to ignore and forget.

•Go crazy if someone doesn't reply immediately. This is not primary school.

•Go straight in with the sex talk.

The main thing is to keep it simple. Stop asking if it hurt when we fell from heaven and just start a normal conversation. M

Now, go forth and Tinder.
