No matter which dating app you are using, you need to break the ice on your chat right after the match. In this blogpost we teach you 5 options that will be excellent ice breakers for sure. Bring your dating game to the next level!
The simple version
Although a simple „hey“ or „hi“ is normally not the best way to break the ice after match, there are some exceptions.
„Saw your profile and just had to say hi.“
A simple and kind way to break the first ice – success almost guaranteed!
Start with a question
A question is always a good idea to start your chat and break the ice. Questions are always a good way to start conversation. Don’t forget to mention something that you’ve noticed in their profile. Here are some examples for good starter question:
„You’ve mentioned that you like hip hop. Me too! What is your favorite artist?“
„What’s one thing I should know about you that’s not on your profile?“
„I love hearing other people’s stories. Do you have a good one to tell?“
Start with a compliment
Compliments are always a good idea to start a conversation and are great ice breakers. But please refrain from standard compliments like „you are beautiful“ or stuff like that. Girls reading that all the time, you need to stand out! Try to avoid physical complements like ‘hot’, ‘sexy’, ‘beautiful’ and use words instead describing personal characteristics like ‘nice’, ‘amazing’, ‘fascinating’. You also shouldn’t focus too much on their photo but on the profile. It is much more valuable if you mention their interests and hobbies than a profile picture.
„You’ve visited so many countries! Good job 😉“
„I like how much you’ve done for XXXX people. You are a really kind person!“
„I like your statements in your profile. Absolutely true. You seem to be a honest and good hearted person.“
Start with a joke
Who doesn’t like jokes? Being funny is a good way to break the ice and makes your chat memorable. Just, please, do not start with the dirty ones. Also avoid sexist and racist jokes. These are always an No-Go. It even doesn’t have to be a joke-joke. You can simply say hello in some funny way:
„That awkward moment when you try to message a guy/girl and all you can think of is hello.“
„I’d decided to give up on finding my soulmate until I saw your profile.“
„My doctor says I’m lacking Vitamin U.“
„34FGJLM – My WiFi Password Thought you will need it sooner or later 😉“
Talk about food
If you want to grab a woman’s attention, don’t use a creepy pick-up line. Instead, talk about food: Researchers found out, that women are 40 percent more likely to reply to a message regarding food or culinary trends. Ask a question or talk about a special place where you ate very delicious food. It will work and is an ideal starter to ask for dinner together.
„Did you eat already today?“
„Hi, im new here in XXXX – do you have any recommendation where I can eat delicious XXXX food“ (choose a popular local dish)
„Chocolate, red velvet or funfetti?“
