Making the first move on a dating app can be intimidating for anyone, especially if you're not used to initiating the conversation. The good news is that it doesn't have to be. One great way to help with taking the leap is to focus on something the two of you have in common when you reach out. For example, if you're both dog lovers, take the lead by letting them know just how adorable their pup is. Not only can flattering their pooch make for a great dating app opening line for dog lovers, but it's a natural jumping-off point for further conversation. After all, what dog lover doesn't want to gush about their pooch? It also doesn't hurt to keep things light and maybe and even a little cheesy in order to create a relaxed and friendly mood. Because if there's one thing people like almost as much as their dog, it's having a laugh.

If you're still not sure how to break the ice, no worries. Here are some dog-loving inspired opening lines to help unleash your chatting confidence. Who knows, one of these lines may just be the first step to finding your next puppy love.
