Love at first profile has been achieved, and the first conversation is quickly approaching. Have you thought about what you should say and not say during this pivotal introductory chat?
Worry no more, because the Advice and Support Team at MateMyMatch is here to tell you how to master the first message! You can now move beyond your first conversation and get closer to your happily ever after. Follow these tips on what to say and what to leave out during this exciting initial conversation with your potential soul mate.
Keep slang on the sidelines and avoid using text terminology during your first real message. Take the time to actually write out words instead of opting for shorthand. Slang and texting lingo will not be taken seriously and will give the impression that you are looking for a buddy, instead of a lifelong partner. On the flip side, try not to sound too formal and professional. You don’t want to come off as stiff and uninterested with office vernacular. Stay true to yourself without giving away too much. It’s important to be authentic and be yourself from the very beginning. If this is the start of a long relationship, you don’t want there to be unexpected surprises as a result of false advertising.
Even if your conversation is through online messaging, authenticity can often be detected and appreciated even in the digital world. Although it’s important to be your true self, try not to give away too much personal information during the first conversation, create a bit of mystery and a reason to look forward to future conversations. It’s also crucial to really get to know the person before you reveal too much about yourself.
Keep religion and politics out for a while. Although it’s important to express your values and faith, the first conversation is definitely not the best forum for this heavy discussion. Keep things smooth, and mix in some humor instead of going in head first for weighty issues. Make sure to not make it all about you, and show interest in the other person by asking questions about their hobbies and interests. Inquiring about personal interests will hopefully lead to things you two have in common which are always the basis to a promising introduction. Avoid dead end answers by responding to questions with a reply that will spark more conversation. Short one-worded answers that don’t elaborate or ask questions will make it seem like you are not available or interested. Keep physical comments and inquiries to a minimum.
Spend more time getting to know who the person is instead of showing more of an interest in their appearance. Try to compliment something they've written in their profile, instead of praising their looks during the first conversation. You don’t want to give the impression that you are superficial and only connecting with them because they appear to be physically attractive. MateMyMatch.com hopes your first conversation is smooth and successful.
With these tips, the countless conversations that follow will hopefully lead to a lifetime of love!
