If you want my team to just do your online dating for you. Mission accomplished on locking down her digits. Well done. Now you're wondering how to text a girl — and keep her engaged until you actually meet in person. You've come to the right place.
First message strategy #2: connect on common ground
You filled out your online dating profile. You took the perfect profile pictures.
You searched for potential matches and even found some that caught your eye. But that was just the beginning, the question remains… What should you say to them? Composing an online dating message is one of the hardest parts of online dating. Should you pay them a compliment, or is that too forward?
Keep the text conversation going
Should you use a pick-up line, or keep it simple? Well, fear not, because we can help.
Here are some online dating message tips to help you write something that has a high chance of getting a response. When you meet somebody in real life, chances are you do two things: say hello and tell them your name.
So why not employ the same greeting tactic online? Comment on their profile. When you meet a new person online, it can be tempting to compliment their looks. And while physical compliments are nice, they can sometimes be, well, empty.
First message strategy #1: go for laughs
Most people would rather receive a compliment about something they wrote in their profile. Bonus points if you add a little information about yourself. It keeps the conversation going and gives them something to respond to. Examples: -I see that you like to cook.
1. focus on quality, not quantity.
I made a great vegetarian lasagna a few nights ago. My favorite is baseball.
I have an Australian Cattle Dog named River. I wonder if we have any friends in common.
Ask a question. One of the best ways to start a conversation is by asking a question.
Again, it gives them something to respond to. Even better if this can also relate to something they wrote in their profile.
No weird pickup lines required
Cut to the chase. Be honest and say what you feel.
Suggest meeting for a date. Is it bold?
Is it risky? Is it effective?
You bet. One of the biggest complaints about online dating is that people spend too much time messaging and not enough time actually dating. Be bold!
