Okay, so you finally got a match. The battle may be won, but the war isn’t nearly over yet. You still have to come up with an enticing one-liner to get them to have a conversation with you. Do you keep it light? Ask them about their day? Tell them your favorite movie? How are you supposed to figure this stuff out?! If you’re really stuck, here are some good opening lines that are bound to get a response:
“I like long walks along the beach… and by the beach I mean from my couch to my fridge.”
“I still use my ex’s Hulu login, and yes, I will gladly share it with you.”
“Hey, I haven’t read the news since 2015, but I probably didn’t really miss anything, did I?”
“If you had to live a TV show, would you choose ‘Riverdale’ or ‘The Bachelor’ and why?”
“What was your last dream about, and how did I look?”
“In your opinion, how many cats is too many cats? You know, for when we live together.”
If these don’t at least get the person’s attention, they’re not worth it anyway! Come up with your quirky line that works best and stick with it. You want to go with something that works every time (though mixing it up is ALWAYS good). And if all else fails, back to the other hundreds of options you have to swipe on!
