The result: a set of rules for what you should and shouldn’t say when introducing yourself. Let’s go: Netspeak, bad grammar, and bad spelling are huge turn-offs.

Our negative correlation list is a fool’s lexicon: was also a successful word, but much less so (33%).

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…

The life of a single guy or a girl in the online dating world is tough.

Although there are lots of dating sites and apps to choose from, the competition is fierce. It can sound cheesy, but it is always better just to be yourself.

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.

Ensure your message meets their standards and goes with the site you are using: If you’re using POF: “Hey, I didn’t think I’d see someone as beautiful as you on a free dating site! ” If you’re signed up to My Single Friend: “So, who tricked you into letting them set you up a profile on here?

”; and those who actually see results from dating apps.
