Happy Humpday Purgators!
We had a great question on Twitter today that we felt deserved a it’s very own post — 140 characters just isn’t enough.
Here is the tweet for your reference:
Our original response was, “It just depends on the person, there’s no one thing that will guarantee a woman to respond.” Upon further discussion we believe the answer we provided was not quite the case. We talked about what kind of opening line is a guaranteed conversation starter and agreed upon the major one which is simply a compliment. Who doesn’t love someone telling them how pretty they are? The other opening line that came to mind was comic relief, it’s hard to ignore someone who makes you laugh.
We both became victims of the “generic message,” someone literally sent us both the exact same opening message on Tinder — they even commented on our “cute button nose.” The Brunette quickly caught on and called him out on his cookie cutter message, needless to say he got nowhere with either of us.
We think it is important to write an original opening line to the person you are chatting up. Whether you comment on a certain feature that catches your eye or a quick antidote from their profile, something personalized is generally going to be a hit.
