As I've said a million times before, I'm not huge on the whole dating app scene. So I asked girls for their tried-and-true first lines on Bumbles and got you some trusty go-tos to use from here on out. You could get this clever sex machine…Or this guy who knows how to do his research…You could get this guy who was looking to bust a little something more than a nut…Or this guy who has a logical explanation for everything…Or this Renaissance man who was concerned with a woman's right to say “no” even in a hypothetical game…Or this guy who was simply left speechless by your awesome line…You could find a guy who completely disregards your acknowledgement of his heritage…Or this guy who was offended but intrigued…Or this guy who knows how to return the compliment… Now I want to know some foolproof ways to make some connections online. You’re also a fan, so send a quick message letting them know you have something in common, such as: “Hey! Those signed up to Plenty of Fish are going to be looking for very different things, compared to people who pay for UK dating with My Single Friend.
It’s worse for guys, because they are expected to send the messages, while the girls sit back and watch the number in their inbox tot up.
Self-disclosure stimulates the same areas of the brain that are associated with motivation and reward, so ask her a question about her personality: Women, especially the attractive ones, get bombarded with messages.
She’ll think it’s a refreshing change to get one that seems written just for her.
So if you don’t create something that immediately snags her attention and compels her to respond, she won’t.
And even if she does respond at first, she’s likely to stop responding to your messages before you get her number.
