Olivia’s answer to my question can help any dude or lady who tries their hand at internet dating. I mean, two random digits are better than just tossing out a “Hey,” or an alarmingly creative “Heya,” right? ” fellow kinda intrigues me, like if you opened his email it would just go on listing a bunch more racket sports. And only Well gang, I hate to say I told you so, but — actually, no I don’t. If I haven’t responded to your second attempt, I’m clearly not interested.
My question: What’s the one thing I can do in my Match email to make sure you’ll respond. First thing to consider is something you probably think little about: your subject line. So, don’t send a third, fourth, or fifth message to someone. A third attempt comes off as desperate and obsessed.
All of these worked better than the standard "hey" or "hey, what's up" that is the baseline greeting most people use. Would you rather have weekly hiccups or never sneeze to completion ever again? What's the most awkward movie you've watched with your parents?
Breakfast preference: pancakes, waffles, or sleeping til lunch?
(Can not add link because I totally made that up.) But as we suggested last week, we are not done with Olivia, our resident hot chick. When I go through my inbox, I do read every message.
Namely, her appearance, her tonality, choice of words, etc.
What's a better line: "How you doin'" or "How you doin'? Sunday priorities: exercise, sleep, or aggressive mimosas?
" The dating app Hinge (it's like Tinder but based more on your Facebook friend group) did some experimenting to find out what kinds of opening messages work best once you've been matched with someone.
Normally, on Hinge you're free to use whatever opening line you want — it shows you mutual friends and interests then gives you a blank canvas to write whatever you want.
But for one month, Hinge gave a random 22% of users the option to use a clever prewritten opening line in addition to writing their own messages. They then tracked which of those prewritten lines were most likely to get a reply, using the data to determine which lines worked best based on gender, location, and how fast you sent a message after getting a match.
