Here’s a list of questions to ask girls on Tinder before you meet them in person.
Swiping left and right on dating apps is easy and gives you a sense of excitement, but if you have never had a creative block and wondered what to ask a girl on Tinder next, you are either a superhuman or lying.

Are they a bookworm, or do they prefer to binge-watch Netflix and scroll through social media? Someone’s reading list or the lack thereof may tell you what they are into currently or in general.
