The Five Ways To Introduce Yourself on Dating Apps
Today we are going to help you get good results, without having to spend endless amounts of time swiping on multiple online dating profiles. If you have found one that you like, it's time to take a leap of faith and craft the perfect online dating message to introduce yourself.
Your conversation starter is going to impact the type of relationship you go on to have with your crush.
Here are fun, five ways for quirky introductions to help you get started:
1. Keep it Simple and Introduce Yourself
Once you have shortlisted potential matches for yourself, it's time to jump right in with a cute, simple but direct online dating message.
Remember, the perfect message does not have to be fancy. So how would you introduce yourself? Think of the many networking events you have been to.
What's the one thing about you that you think your potential partner should know? Ideally, start with something that's unique and awesome so your crush will reply. Don't be boring - a normal hello is just a cookie-cutter message and can easily get lost in the clutter.
Look for common ground on your date's profile and ask something interesting. Here are some message examples you can use:
- Hello, fellow football fan. Did you catch that play last night? I did because football is my favorite thing in the world...among many others.
- It's so exciting to find another person who's been to Africa! What was your favorite place to explore? I am a complete travel enthusiast.

2. Lead With Flirtation
If you are the type of person who is upfront about what he/she wants, this is for you. It's okay to lead with a flirtatious message, but be careful to not come off too strong. If you receive a positive response to the flirtation, then you can certainly amp things up.
Here are a few ideas for you to drop an effective message in your crush’s inbox to amp things up for a potential, long term relationship:
- There's only one thing that can make my day better and that's a cute message from you, Laura.
- Can I call you cutie or do you prefer Laura?
It's great to always use your crush's name in the message, and of course, it's easily available on dating app profiles as well. So add that to your flirtation and put your best message forward!
3. Drop A Unique Message Highlighting Similarities
This is one of the best and tried-and-tested formulas to nurture a connection with someone you like. So pull out your spyglass, and be ready to stalk your crush, if you haven’t already, that is.
There must be something that has attracted you to this profile, and in most cases, it’s a shared hobby or experience.
Here are a few messages you can use, to introduce yourself and also highlight common ground:
- Looks like we're the only two people in the world with a passion for anime, maybe we should team up and talk strategy?
- I just finished reading The Da Vince Code! Did you see that ending coming?
Not only are these messages light and engaging, but they will also tell your crush that you took some time to get to know them better. For the right person, this could mean a lot!
Usually, bonding over things like a shared love for nature or a passion can also land you a great friendship if not a smashing relationship! So you have nothing to lose here.

4. Jump-start The Conversation
Don’t read too much into your introductory message - you can start the conversation with a casual introduction about yourself. To keep the message from sounding too boring, think of some fun facts about yourself that can really pique the interest of your crush.
While you craft your introductory message, remember here are a few targets that you need to hit with the message:
You could talk about your last traveling experience, especially if you have been using an international dating site. Talk about something that you saw, a book that you read or a conversation that changed your life…in a good way.
Then think about how you can turn that into a quirky message for your crush.
5. Begin With A Question
Are you one of those daters who like to keep things subtle, atleast initially? Then this strategy will work like a charm for you.
- We’re the last two people on earth and there are predators outside. There’s a knock at our door! What do we do?!”
- “What is your favorite movie that really got you thinking?”
- “What kind of music do you like and why?”
- “What do you love to do in your spare time? ”
- “What's your favorite food?”
All of these questions are basic and make your crush think that you are interested in them. This is a great way to get the ball rolling, simple and easy.
