15 dating app conversation starters that will get Londoners talking

We’ve teamed up with Badoo to reveal dating app conversations that are sure to get Londoners chatting


More Londoners than ever are using apps like Badoo to find love. But the hardest part of meeting someone on a dating app? Knowing how to start the conversation. Do you go in with something neutral? A simple ‘Hi :)’ perhaps? Do you turn on the charm with a ‘Hi ;)’? Such a tough call!

We say: go for something a little more adventurous...

Everyone loves a bit of cheese now and again – even us Londoners – and while each of these one-liners might feature a decent serving of your cornershop's finest Brie, they’re all a bit funny, a bit cheeky and will definitely get the conversation flowing. Why not download Badoo and try them out today?

1. Are you an Oyster card? Because I'd like to tap you. Preferably at an off-peak time.

3. Barry’s Bootcamp: dream or nightmare?
