Tips starting conversation online dating
I never realized how much “like attracts like” in that I am often surrounded by people who are similarly skilled at conversing.
Whether through choice of school programs and extracurricular activities in college (I was a public relations major and I was in a sorority, both of which required a certain level of communications skills), or fields of work post-graduation (I work in nonprofits which tend to not only attract a wide variety of employees, but also a very diverse clientele), I’ve mostly always been around people who are pretty decent at holding a conversation. Trying to talk to men on dating apps is so horrifically painful.
Also, don’t assume you’re the only one who should ask questions…allow your date to ask questions as well!
But, when I go out of my way to send stuff other than “hey” or “how are you,” I often get a curt response that doesn’t really make me want to continue the conversation.I didn’t know it was possible for people to be so horrendous at conversation.And to be fair, my male friends say women are just as bad, if not worse, and I don’t doubt that for a second.If someone reaches out, and you are interested in talking to them, talk to them!Be happy you got a unique opener and try to send them something unique in response, or at least ask them something about their profile.
