Swiping is easy—it’s starting a conversation that’s hard! So here’s my advice: keep a list of things you like talking about. It’s not fun to figure out an interesting way to answer “How are you?” time and time again, so set yourself apart from the crowd and lead with something a little more exciting, that you will actually find engaging to talk about. And the real secret here? You can re-use your interesting conversation starter as many times as you want until you tire of it—the people you’re sending it to will never know! Kick it off with a friendly greeting, or add a personal touch so it doesn’t sound too manufactured.
Take a look at some examples below!
