Instead of sending a “hey,” “what’s up” or “how are you,” try one of these opener ideas instead. They’re more likely to get you an answer and help get you one step further to that IRL meet-up.
- Pull something personal from their profile and use that.
- Send a compliment.
- “If you had to hit me with the opening line, what would it be?”
- “Let’s play a game.”
- Send a gif.
- “What’s your favorite…”
- “What was the highlight of your week/weekend?”
- Match your own personality.
- Ask them what they want.
