According to Ok Cupid, “Saying ‘Hey’ in a first message is almost equivalent to saying nothing — this greeting has an 84% chance of being completely ignored.” That first exchange sets the tone for the rest of the relationship, so you should go beyond one-word openers and say something to give your date a laugh.
Match suggests asking a “Would you rather” question to get a date’s attention.“I showed him your picture and explained what Ok Cupid was,” the online dater wrote.“He let me off with a warning and said I better get your number.” Clearly, this guy is a smooth talker.According to Buzzfeed, sending a GIF on Tinder increases your likelihood of getting a response by 30%. ” In a funny first message, the online dater shows interest in Michaela’s pictures, pays a compliment to her dog, asks a solid question, and makes a flirtatious suggestion.That’s a strong incentive to start adding GIFs to your dating repertoire. Whether it’s Jimmy Fallon saying “Haaaay” or Joey Tribbiani saying “How you doin’? All these elements combined create a memorable and appealing introduction.
