There is no doubt that online dating has revolutionised the way people get into contact.
The question is, how can we talk to other people on these platforms? These tips are here to guide you.
1. Start with a Greeting
Believe it or not, “hello” is a good way to start most conversations. You can write something even better by adding things to make it more interesting. Try something like “How YOU doin’? I’m ___”. Or do something even more engaging, funny, something that the other side can use to reply easily and start an interesting conversation.
2. Make a Nice Comment
Make a comment on one of their interests that you saw from their profile. This shows that you are interested in them. Complimenting one’s appearance is fine, but it’s not enough. So you maybe share an interest? Go ahead and mention that, talk about it. That way you will start chatting before you even notice.
3. Ask Questions
Asking a question is a great way to show interest and continue the conversation. Better ask about something that you saw on their profile. Like said earlier, ask about their interests, their hobbies, what’s their favourite restaurant, anything that can be used as a starting point for a flowing conversation.
4. Don’t Hide Behind Your Finger
Being honest is helpful. That doesn’t mean you have to be aggressive though.
However, if you are interested in someone, show it! It is good to share things and show your interest, so don’t be shy.
5. Ask for a Date
This may sound a little risky and it really is. However, people tend to spend too much time talking behind their screens, instead of going out on dates, so if you ask for it, you might have good results.
What’s the point after all, if not start dating?
