To Tinder or not to Tinder, that is the question.

For many young, busy professionals, it’s hard out in these dating streets. There are only so many “Grown and Sexy” happy hours, paint and sips, and hip hop karaoke meet ups one can attend before realizing time (and money) could be better spent. Enter the social media age and dating apps. Now you can find your soul mate with a mere swipe to the right, all while you SoulCycle.

But for many the leap from Tinder-roni to bae-cation worthy significant other is hard. What do you say after you match? Don’t get stuck in the lazy daters exchange of “Hey, wyd?” Use these 5 tinder icebreakers to #TinderLikeABoss.

1. What would be the 28th question if you had to add to Buzzfeed’s “27 Questions Black People Have For Black People”?


2. Which Dope character were you most like in high school?


3. Which married couple would you prefer to be like: Clair and Cliff Huxtable, Francis and Claire Underwood, Bobby and Lara Axelrod, or Rainbow and Andre Johnson?

4. If happiness were a backpack, what would you put in it?

5. Is your dating life more like a Whiskey and Ginger Ale (smooth), Gin and Tonic (light) or Rum and Coke (flavorful)?
