And speaking of dating-let’s move on to what we’re really here for. Let’s take a look at how to use Kik for dating, to meet women to hang out and hook up with. The next section will cover a few pointers to help make sure your experience is a good one.
Aside from meeting women in Kik groups, you can also use third-party apps and sites. These can either turn Kik into a real dating app experience or simply group you with people who’s thinking the same thing you are.
“Match Chat” is a popular third-party app, which you can search for from Kik’s browser. It requires you to link your Kik profile to its website, after which you can check other members’ Match Chat profiles.
The app turns Kik into a Tinder-like experience where you browse women and swipe left or right depending on whether you want to match with them. When you look for similar apps, you might confuse it with “Matcher” and many other third-party apps that do a similar thing-turn Kik into a real dating app.
Another app worth considering is Flirt!, which alerts you to other Kik users in your area within your age range. It’s a popular option for singles who want to use Kik for dating.
- Some apps are more reputable than others, so make sure your device is secured with antivirus, antispyware, and antispam in case you download a bad one.
- While Kik itself is free to use, some third-party apps aren’t, so expect paywalls here and there.
- Most apps that are free to use tend to have lots of ads, so expect some “words from their sponsors” as you use them.

Reddit, Tumblr, and Social Media
Do you hang out at sites like Reddit or Tumblr, or on social media platforms like Facebook? If you do, do a quick search for groups and subreddits where Kik users congregate to meet, plan dates, and more.
For instance, Reddit has the subreddit Kik Pals. Kik users post there almost daily looking for people to chat with. Likewise, Facebook has many Groups for Kik users who want to find chatmates.
There’s no shortage of places to find new Kikmates outside of the Kik platform. Just look around and have fun meeting new people. Eventually you’ll find women in your area with the same interests-or the same kinks-as you.
What to say to a girl on Kik
Kik, when used as a dating app, is pretty much like all the dating apps out there. Women on the platform are there to find dates, so they’re pretty receptive to guys messaging them. But don’t settle for the generic “hi” and “hello”. If the woman you’re talking to is reasonably attractive, she probably already gets dozens of generic messages each day.
So what should you start with? Here’s what to say to a girl on Kik to get her to respond:
. Low-stakes questions about her profile or interests are almost always a winner. She’ll appreciate that you want to know more about her. . A little flattery can get you far. But make sure your compliment isn’t just about her looks. Find something in her profile that resonates with you and compliment her on that. . Emphasis on the word “fun”. These pickup lines may have been designed for Tinder, but they work on nearly all apps. Keep in mind that these aren’t your typical pickup lines; they’re more of guidelines for how you can create lines based on the woman you’re talking to.
