Hinge published a report Thursday on the best ways to start a conversation with your matches and improve your chances of getting a response.
Four things to ask her or him about on a first date? Here, we’ve divided your hypothetical first date into five phases and suggested a series of questions to ask your date during each.
These questions are key primers, the ones to ask after you’ve said hello, and settled in somewhere comfortable.
If you're really, really hoping to get a response from your match, a vague greeting won't get you stellar results.
As far as response rates go, “Hey” performs at average, while “Hey, what’s up” performs at 4 percent above average."We’re aiming to help users do better than average, and are thus showing examples of the types of things that do better than a generic opener," Karen Fein, Hinge’s vice president of marketing, told The Huffington Post.
Time to seal the deal—the last few minutes of a date are crucial to make sure a second date happen.
