What to send as a first message on dating sites
Some people think it’s cool to copy and paste an identical message to hundreds of other people, like bait in a lake full of carp. I’d like to say there’s no right or wrong way to message someone—everyone has something that works for them—but there is definitely a way.
And this couldn’t be more true when it comes to contacting someone online.
Find her on Instagram to stay up to date with all of her shenanigans.
As any guy who’s ventured onto Tinder or OKCupid knows, that first message is daunting. Your best bet: Mention something specific in her profile, like her Raiders T-shirt or your shared obsession with Game of Thrones.
Online dating gives you a bit of an advantage in that you can strategically plan that first message so it hits home with a bit of a punch.
Unlike an everyday face to face meeting where the words just tumble from your mouth in no apparent order.
That doesn’t include comments on her appearance, like “You have beautiful eyes.” Only 9 percent of the marriages started that way.
