Best Tinder Openers
I’ve sent my fair share of messages on social media, networking and dating platforms that get no response from the other person.
There is almost nothing worse than sending a perfectly composed email or DM, and you press “send” beaming proudly, and then to never hear back from your intended recipient.
Your heart sinks, you wait for days, checking daily until finally you forget, or get a response from a different perfectly composed message.
I recently conducted a Tinder Social Experiment to find what eye color men see as most attractive. You’re welcome, Men, this article is for you.
You’ll get an inside scoop to see what messages I thought were the best and that I would have responded to in a normal non-experiment setting and which were so cringe-worthily horrible that I would never respond even if I had felt an initial attraction to their profile.
