Everyone gets nervous when sending the first message, and a ‘hi’ is just boring. So here’s how to start a conversation on a dating app to help out.
We’re starting a new set with ‘Tips From a Dating App’ – who else should you take dating advices from?? The app itself gives you tips and tricks on how to nail a date or get laid 😉
This article, we’re talking about how to start a conversation on a dating app. You’ve matched – congrats! But then comes the awkwardness of how texts first. If you’re on Bumble, then women text first, but still – WHAT DO YOU TEXT??? First off, if your match has no text and only one picture on their profile, that doesn’t help this situation.
We all know those ‘hi’ ‘how are you’ ‘how was your day’ ‘what’s up’ ‘hey’ are boring af.
How to start a conversation on a dating app
1. Ask about something specific in their picture
Again, if they have no profile bio or just one picture, maybe this one isn’t for you. But if they do have more than one picture, you could definitely start a conversation! Point it out (if it’s a picture), and say that it’s funny/interesting/weird – whatever you want. And then start asking questions about it.
2. Would You Rather
This one is always fun, isn’t it? Think of some WYR questions and shoot. They can be as dirty or as innocent you want, it doesn’t really matter. You should also answer your own question, then explain, and ask him why he chose his answer. Boom. Conversation.
But! Fear not if you don’t have the icrebreaking skills to think up of some WYR questions, because DOWN App does it for you! They have tons of WYR questions, all you need to do is click and hit send.
3. Ask something. Anything.
There are no rules here, you can literally ask anything you want! But if you’re still confused, here’s some options;
- What do you do on the weekends?
- Who are three of the most important people in your life?
- What is your most useless skill?
- Favorite sport?
- Do you find it easy to open up to people?
- What are you passionate about in life?
Again, ask anything you like. Just don’t ask how are you cause that’s too general.
4. Compliment them
They only have one picture? No problem. You say “wow, you look really good in that one picture”. Or “Your name really rings a bell. Have we met somewhere?” Make something interesting, compliment them on their shoes they’re wearing, or the view in the picture, anything.
5. Ask what they’re looking for.
I know some people put it on their profile to make it clear, yet again, some people put nothing on their profile. If you’re on a dating app to look for something specific, maybe asking what they’re looking for is a good idea to start the conversation. That way you’d know whether to continue it at all!
If you’re too awkward for this, don’t need to worry. There’s an app that does it for you. DOWN App has a swiping feature that allows you to differentiate your intentions. Looking for a one night stand? We got you. Looking for a serious relationship? We got you too.
Those are 5 tips on how to start a conversation on a dating app. If you have any more you just thought off, by al means go for it! These tips come from DOWN Dating App ; an honest dating app that is sex positive and want their users to date honestly.
