No matter if you are already acquainted with a person or you just found each other’s profiles don’t put too much effort into your first conversation. Don’t just write “Hi!”, ask a simple question about how the day goes or their work or hobbies. Replying to a bare greeting is often awkward but having an inquiry to answer your companion will feel more at ease. Also, even though you might be uncomfortable starting the dialogue, remember, starting flirting online as well as internet dating is less scary than the same thing in reality.
Find some more subjects for talking about. User profiles usually contain enough information about person’s interests, so use it as a tool for broadening the number of topics. Don’t be afraid to develop the conversation, somebody has to trigger the further discussion and why not do it yourself.
