Starting a conversation on a dating site or maybe replying to one for the first time may seem troublesome and confusing. Want to know a secret? Practice makes perfect and the conversation starters get profoundly better with time.
If it’s your first time dating online and you are worried about how to introduce yourself, here are some awesome tips for you to try and get the girl of your dreams effortlessly!
Tips for Starting a Conversation on a Dating Website
Here’s your tips, follow them and you’ll be on your way to dating super stardom.
Tip 1: Humor is the best Policy
Most online daters are in search of someone who is upbeat, funny and humorous. If you are a guy, start your conversation with a light hearted joke and build the conversation based on your mutual interests such as movies, food items, hangout spots, etc.
Secret: Do not get cheesy.
Tip 2: Note the Common Factors
Noting the likes and dislikes you two share is going to go a long way. Once you have spoken about your interests, make a joke which only two of you will be able to relate to once you two meet face to face. Creating memories is the key while dating online.
Secret: Don’t overdo it.
Tip 3: Compliment is what she wants!
No girl hates compliments. She is here to be noticed, loved and taken care of. Hence, compliment her on something factual such as her taste in movies, perfumes, how she looks in her pictures, etc.
Secret: Keep it real.
Tip 4: Ask Questions
Asking questions can help you build your conversations while you get to know the other person better. After 10-15 minutes, you can hit him/her with a personal question as well. Well, you have to be smart about this one! While “Do you like your coffee black?” will do, “Tell me about your EX!” wont.
Secret: Everyone loves answering personal questions.
Tip 5: Use Emoji
Everyone prefers graphics compared to text. Why not make the most of it? Use your favorite emojis in your conversation and make it fun and colorful. You could use it to ask her out with ‘Pointed finger + Dinner + Wine glass’. This was just an example, hence work on your bonding before you ask her out for real.
Secret: Too many Emojis are equally worse.
Tip 6: Be Yourself
Online dating is all about two people connecting. Be yourself and go with the flow. If you are nervous, keep things simple and feel the connection. The first conversation on any dating site can reveal whether it’s going to work out or not. Both of you are judging each other at this point so hey, be something that defines you rather than being someone you are not.
Secret: Don’t be too open about yourself yet.
If this is your fist time dating online, whether you are the guy or the girl, use these simple tricks to spice things up! If you really want to boost your confidence, try to lower your standards. You’ll boost your confidence since you won’t be shooting for the stars.
