Interestingly, women seemed to display stronger feelings about grammar than men - so it pays to double-check that message, gentlemen!
As someone who never quite "got it", I have to ask a genuine question: What does going to galleries provide for you? When this happens, too many amazing people inadvertently end up sounding like frat boys and girls or like desperate pick-up artists reciting stale clichés. In a first message, never write just "hi", "hey" or "hru" as it most probably will NOT catch the attention of that special single!However, if there is nothing in common that you can immediately talk about, go the opposite way and ask about something in their story, profile, or pictures that is completely foreign to you or something that you find intriguing or you would like to try.On a related note, when writing your own profile, make sure to include such possible online conversation starters in there, to make it easier for people reading your profile to connect with you.Finally, my last recommendation, for both men and women, is to remember to bring in the energy of fun and playfulness into your messages!Authentic, light and personalized messages are the best way to get things going online.
