Online dating is unlike real life dating. In real life, you get to express your feelings through eye contact, body language, facial expressions and tone of voice. Whereas when you’re online, your conversation starter means a lot and a simple ‘Hi’ may not suffice. Come on, there are better ways to go about it.

Introduce yourself in a simple sentence

‘Hi, I’m _____. Nice to meet you.’ It’s mind-blowingly simple but also shows sincerity. A polite introduction goes a longer way than a single worded ‘hey’. Not only it shows that you have proper manners, but it also echoes something you would actually say in real life.

You may also want to use power introductions to say everything you need and leave your partner with no choice but to respond and set up a date.

Ask THEM about THEM and be genuinely interested

“I’ve visited Venice before, it is really beautiful.” – Isn’t this much better than asking them ‘Where are you from?’. It shows that you actually make the effort to read their profile and paid attention to details of what they present in their profile.

Pick something on their profile and compliment them

“You look great in that red dress!” I’d be thrilled to receive a message like this from any potential sugar daddies.

Start off with genuine compliments rather than go-to compliments like “You have nice eyes.” The person might really have beautiful eyes but try giving compliments that are more personaliaed and tailored to what they show in their photos.

Talk about their personal interests and wants

Ask them about something their fond of. Everyone loves talking about themselves and trading personal interests/stories is a great way to break the ice and warm up the conversation. Coincidently, you may also like a similar book/music/restaurant and now both of you have something to talk about! Keep the conversation light.

It is not as complicated as you think. Simple moves like these do not require a lot of effort. Make a change today and start your conversation the right way now. Have fun sugaring!
