Forget cheesy pick-up lines. Now that Tinder on iOS lets you send GIFs, here are a few animated clips that may help you charm the pants off your matches.
The process of courtship is hard enough as it is, but trying to woo somebody online is especially difficult. People are quick to judge on the internet and there's nothing more ruthless than throwing yourself onto Tinder only to be swiped left and rejected based on a few pictures and a short blurb.
But if you do get a chance to have somebody that you like swipe right on you on the dating app, congratulations, you've passed the first stage. Now you have to find something witty to say to your match to keep them interested. Thankfully, if you're not the best conversationalist in the world and you're stumped on icebreakers, Tinder has partnered up with GIF repository, Giphy to bring iOS users the ability to send GIFs through the dating app.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a GIF would be worth a million. Everybody loves a good GIF, which are often hilarious and appropriate for any kind of situation. If you can't find the right words to say, at least you can make your potential date laugh with a funny animated clip. Here are a few suggested GIFs.

You can try flirting a little...
... Or Get straight to the point:
Tell your match what you want to do to them when you finally meet them in person...
Okay, maybe not that one. Try this one:
And for those who want to show a bit of gratitude:
