Keep the conversation upbeat and interesting on the dating app with a fun answer to break the ice. When you’re just starting a conversation, it’s important to ask questions and show your match you want to get to know her in a lighthearted way. Pay attention to her profile pictures, and ask a question or two about something you’ve noticed about her photos.


You don't want to give off the wrong impression by talking by yourself, which can lead her to not wanting to talk anymore. Avoid small talk and instead, give her a fun question to respond to hey.


  1. You seem to have a lot of travel photos! What’s your favorite place that you’ve been to?


  2. Is that your dog in your profile picture? What kind of dog are they?


  3. Hey! I love your hiking photos. What’s your favorite trail you’ve ever been on?


  4. Where was your last picture taken? That looks like a fun day out!
