It's tough to stand out in the deep sea of Tinder users. While puns might not be everyone's cup of tea, they'll certainly make you more memorable than most. As to whether that's a good thing...see for yourself in these images via Bored Panda.
And we're off!

*cue sad tuba/trombone*
via: RedditYou'd be amazed at how many of these keep the convo alive. I guess there are more pun fans than I thought (hoped).
via: RedditThe only thing better than "no puns" is when a punmaker gets hit back with a pun like this fella did.
Whoa. That's funny on both ends.
via: RedditMaybe puns are funnier when they're part of a series of volleys like this one is. That was a brutal finish.
Too much, guys.
via: RedditI think they'll be very happy together. Driving everyone around them insane with pun-fueled conversation.
He was sitting on that gem for a second, you can tell.
via: RedditHe set her up, and she failed to knock it down!
Nothing beats a rock-solid banking pun, amiright?
via: RedditWell, based on the response, I guess SOME things beat a banking pun, but it was a noble effort.
via: RedditThat escalated a little quicker than it should have, it would seem. Oh well. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Bird puns galore!
via: ImgurLooks like they're both having fun running with this little scheme. Good for them. These are quality.
Kenya's an old pro at this.
via: RedditRemember, you're NEVER the first person to make a pun about a person's name. EVER.
We have a winner!!!
via: RedditOh, wow. He took a big chance, and it totally paid off. Enjoy it, folks, it doesn't happen often.
Name pun...yet again.
via: RedditNo response. Not a great omen of things to come, for sure.
Dina mite can be explosive.
via: RedditSo be careful, or you'll end up a wounded mess like this dude who got unmatched in a hurry.
A user's guide for name puns.
via: RedditHe ignored the advice. That doesn't show the best listening or reading skills in the world. Ho-ho-ho.
Is this better?
via: RedditJudging by the lack of response, I would say it probably is NOT better, but certainly more creative.
She fell for it!
via: RedditShe called him sexy! Now they're legally married according to Tinder terms of service! Have a nice life, kids!
via: RedditOf course, I'm not sure what to make of that name either, so these are uncharted waters for everyone. He tried and failed. SIGH.
That took a while.
via: RedditLook at the timestamps. I'm guessing he was sitting in a dark cave dreaming that up for months. Hope it worked out in the long run.
She was missing an "N."
via: RedditShe finally got it, but I guess I don't know where it goes from here. Restraining order, perhaps? I'm guessing so.
She was given a choice.
via: RedditHe delivered. I wonder how many times he's used it and what the success rate is. So far, one-for-one.
"Pls no more."
via: ImgurIt just doesn't stop! It finally does with a "nooo" but that's probably too late. The pun-damage has been done.
He snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
via: RedditPun people really don't know when to stop, even if it's clear they should. I hope he recovers nicely from wrecking a sure thing.
Grain puns are apparently a thing. Huh.
via: RedditIt's too much for ALL OF US to handle, actually.
She hates her name.
via: RedditSo don't do what you did, sir. You had one rule for interacting, and you broke it. Ouch.
This girl's a little TOO impressed by puns.
via: RedditI guess that's good for this wizard of wordplay, but he's probably going to get just as much from her if they connect.
2017 is a BAD time to be named Alexa.
via: RedditFortunately, you only have to hear a pun once before you can block someone, so she controls her own destiny.
When the convo gets away from puns, it's time to drop 'em.
via: RedditPun fans have a hard time turning serious, which doesn't bode well for real-world interactions, now does it?
That's a pretty brilliant one.But its success rate has to be low. Only some serious classical music fans will respond to this level of nerdiness.
"Wow you're really full of them."
via: RedditThat's probably not a huge compliment, but this guy didn't take the hint, choosing instead to just. keep. running. with. it.
If you ask for a pun, you have to at least GET IT.
via: RedditThis was a solid one, but I'm guessing the pun maker may have put the kibosh on this convo. He needs to have his work appreciated.
