If you're really, really hoping to get a response from your match, a vague greeting won't get you stellar results.As far as response rates go, “Hey” performs at average, while “Hey, what’s up” performs at 4 percent above average."We’re aiming to help users do better than average, and are thus showing examples of the types of things that do better than a generic opener," Karen Fein, Hinge’s vice president of marketing, told The Huffington Post.

Don’t just find a bunch of questions on the internet to ask just so you can “fill the silence”.
While I will provide examples it’s best if you ask yourself this question: What’s important to me in a relationship?
People 18-23, for example, value questions that are novel and surprising, like this: "Pain reliever personality: Advil, Tylenol, or complaining? According to the Hinge report, men and women differ when it comes to waiting for a match to send the first message.
For instance, if you wait longer than 6 hours to message a man, the likelihood he'll respond drops by 25 percent. If you don't message a woman within the same time period, the chance she'll respond drops by only 5 percent.
Finally, don’t get so obsessed with asking a list of specific questions that you end up putting you’re dating on an “interview”. If it never finds a life of its own then at the very least mix things up so there are some serious questions and some light-hearted ones. If you are serious about finding a relationship you need to decide what’s important to you and base your questions, at least in part, on these areas.
