If you want online dating to be successful, the first message is crucial.Imagine being the home team at a baseball game and you are up to bat.
When you are sending out a first message on an online dating site, what are proven, tried and tested first messages? I don't think there's going to be any one magic universal opener that will blow the doors off any and every girl. Many examples of guys putting lines up on here and within days being called out for it because every third message she receives is your own opener.. Within those categories, I've observed some patterns for success.
It’s actually slightly enraging to read some of these messages that these guys are sending to some of my female friends, only because all I can think is “HOW THIS IS MY COMPETITION!? Especially when I receive screen shots of first messages like the one below : I can’t even. That, somehow they are “beating the system” and not really having to do any work, other than craft a single super generic message and send it out dozens of times.
Because if they actually thought that the women they were sending the messages to knew that these were generic messages, they wouldn’t be sending them right?
I know some mention of something specific on their profile would be good but the guys who are good at this must at least has some set templates that they can riff or improvise on. There's so much variation in personalities that every chic may react differently. It's the only way you separate yourself after you qualify on her acceptable looks scale. Party slut- Here's where being suggestive in your messages plays very well. Artsy- Off-beat humor works very well for this category.
Some girls respond well to complimentary openers, some don't. They usually have longer profiles, so look for something for an original joke.
