Dating introduction examples
Dream3vil, an Ok Cupid user in Medford, New Jersey, took an original approach to his first message.
He claimed he was pulled over by a cop for texting and driving because he was writing a message on the Ok Cupid app.
He replied, “So I guess the question at this point is, do you want the D?
It doesn’t take a razor sharp wit, but it still shows off your creativity.
“I showed him your picture and explained what Ok Cupid was,” the online dater wrote.
“He let me off with a warning and said I better get your number.” Clearly, this guy is a smooth talker.
Maybe saying hi at a party works just fine, but online daters aren’t so easily wooed.
According to Ok Cupid, “Saying ‘Hey’ in a first message is almost equivalent to saying nothing — this greeting has an 84% chance of being completely ignored.” That first exchange sets the tone for the rest of the relationship, so you should go beyond one-word openers and say something to give your date a laugh.
I don’t know if he won the girl over or not, but he made me laugh with his arresting anecdote. It just takes a little trial and error to acquire some stand-by icebreakers.
