While online dating gives you endless choices and wider perspectives, it certainly comes with some drawbacks. We love how text savvy we are but sometimes even the best of us can get bored by repeating the same conversation over and over again. Yes, it feels repetitive, especially when it is on text. Some might love the routine, but it can make others distant and uninterested. It is time to level up your online dating skills with these tips.
1. Remember You Aren't Doing An Interview
Nothing bores the person more than a dull "question and answer" conversation. Of course, you want to know what they do for a living or what their career choices are, but this conversation can feel like an interrogation. It is best to create a build-up by talking about more interesting things, like how their day was and what their routine is like. Once you have all their attention, then very subtly take up the conversation.
2. Blah Responses Are A Turn-Off
Make them feel that you are invested in the conversation. You can't be binge-watching your favourite series and replying to them just for the sake of it. Put in the effort and come up with flirty, savage responses to spice it up. Make it a potentially potent conversation and take things forward.
3. Late Replies Are Mood Killers
If you are busy, let them know. Leaving them on seen or replying super late is a buzzkill and no one wants that. There is nothing worse than a conversation left in middle. Instead, it is best to let them know that you are occupied and text them once you are free.
4. Recommendations Always Work
Don't jump to cringe stuff when you are at a loss for words. Instead turn the conversation to web series, movies and shows and ask them what kind of genre they like as well as ask them if they have any recommendations. If you have the same interests, you can even discuss your favourite scenes from the show.
5. Use GIF's
Using GIFs more often in a conversation can literally take your conversation from 0 to 100 in no time. In case you feel that the conversation is going downhill or is stuck, relatable GIFs could be a way to save it.
6. Play Games
Quick text games are just another way to save your conversation. If you are on that stage with your "person", you can spice up your texts with some flirtatious elements too but do make sure that the other person is equally comfortable before you do so.
