Funny greetings for online dating

Okay, I’m just going to admit it, and come out and say it.The first thing you read in the post was a bold face lie.Typically, it’s something complementary on something she has mentioned as a passion, interest or career. ” Objective 2: Show we have similar interest/things in common Okay, you’ve proven you’ve read her profile, now you need to demonstrate you actually have things in common.

The one that received the least amount of responses?

“Hey.” Similarly, in 2009 Ok Cupid analyzed over 500,000 first messages, looking at at keywords and phrases, discovering it's actually better to use no traditional salutation at all and jump right into chatting. Even though space on your online dating profile is limited, there are ways to convey your personality, whether it's through a picture or a quote on your bio.

It’s actually slightly enraging to read some of these messages that these guys are sending to some of my female friends, only because all I can think is “HOW THIS IS MY COMPETITION!? Especially when I receive screen shots of first messages like the one below : I can’t even. That, somehow they are “beating the system” and not really having to do any work, other than craft a single super generic message and send it out dozens of times.

Because if they actually thought that the women they were sending the messages to knew that these were generic messages, they wouldn’t be sending them right?

Dating apps like Hinge and Coffee Meets Bagel make this a lot easier with icebreakers and questions to answers. "Here are some real conversation starters that work for daters, because we're all better than a "hey!

Luckily, there are a ton of options out there to stand out with an original conversation starter, from asking about an interest to commenting on a picture of their cat to using emojis and GIFs.

I don’t actually know “How to Write the Perfect First Message”, and since I’m being honest, the title of this post is mostly for SEO reasons.

I need this, no, WE need this to be a PSA for guys of the internet who are doing online dating, on how to send a first message.

Preferably, open ended questions, in regards to her profile.
