We've all been there—landing an online date can be hard.
You've carefully chosen your photos and spent time making sure your bio strikes the perfect balance of sincere and funny, so why is there radio silence from everyone you've swiped right on?
Luckily, online dating site Zoosk gathered some tips to help you out.
They analyzed data from more than 40 million of their members to see what's been working—and what hasn't—so you can go into the new year stronger than ever.
For example, I messaged six women with an aggressive approach, six woman with a passive approach, and so on.
This post includes the five key ways I changed the way I message women after analyzing my interactions, as well as, examples of each approach that was used. The beginning of the conversation is the time to find common ground in order to establish a connection In the beginning, be funny, ask a question, and pay attention to the details.
I guess one could say that the last couple of weeks of mine have been hectic when it comes to my dating life but it was worth it.
But playing it too cool might not actually be the best approach.
Zoosk found that guys who included words like "thoughtful," "listener," or "giving"—among others—in their bios were 66 percent more likely to get messages than guys who didn't.
What's more is that guys who say they're a "knight in shining armor" get an average of 67 percent more messages.
Let the conversation flow naturally from the initial message but keep in mind that the point of the interaction is for it to lead to a date. Demonstrate that you took the time to read her profile by mentioning an interest of hers Within the first three to four messages mention something that has to do with the details within their profile that you actually have an interest in.
In addition, doing this when it is time to ask her out on a date will absolutely help your chances. If she doesn’t respond to your first message within 48 hours then send an engaging question that she can’t help but answer Sending one follow up message is a good idea because it shows that you are seriously interested in her but do your best to not come off pushy or aggressive. Suggest a date immediately after receiving a positive response from her The most success I experienced when suggesting a date was seen immediately after receiving a positive response from her.
