It’s really not that simple, with the truth being that for some people there may be very few or even no matches, while for others there may be many. Opening Lines If you see someone you like in online dating, then the next thing is to make contact. Back in 1986, Chris Kleinke and colleagues (Kleinke, Meeker and Staneski, 1986) asked students what they would say to initiate contact with someone they wanted to meet.

Instead, one should maybe try selecting the type of person with whom you can imagine having a good time.Some of the more humorous lines which, by the way, were categorised as cute or flippant, were, “Didn’t we meet in a previous life?” and “You remind me of a woman I used to date.” While lines such as these are not necessarily recommended, it is important to note the importance of humour. Humour Pretty much everyone states that they have a good sense of humour, and the acronym GSOH (Good sense of humour) is often used in dater’s descriptions.One theory as to why it is for men to generate humour comes from evolutionary psychology.Men who can be spontaneously funny are said to be creatively intelligent.
