You could always spruce it up a bit and go with a foreign greeting, but make sure you know what it means otherwise you could come off looking like a bit of a Del boy.Theirs might be the most beautiful smile in the world, but pointing that fact out in a first message will most likely be a turn off.Surprisingly, though, come across as run of the mill and perhaps a bit boring.So while you should avoid using netspeak too much, using slang or an unusual greeting is considered a great move.
Unless you are actively seeking a partner of a specific faith, then it is probably a good idea to leave out any religious words in your first message.
Ideally, though, you’ll have some sort of common interests and once you’ve picked up on that then a conversation, or better still, a date could be just around the corner.
Nothing starts a conversation quicker than a question, so do yourself a huge favour and simply ask one.
I know this is not marketing school but, like a marketer, you are trying to reel someone in.
And just like an ad agency makes a call to action, you can too, by simply asking about an interest or even suggesting a dinner date.
