Transitioning from a dating app to texting can be tricky sometimes. It probably took some time to get your match's number, and when you finally do, you're probably eager to take things to the next level. But once you move off the app, what do you say? How do you keep the momentum rolling? Choosing the texts to send after matching on a dating app can be even trickier than composing your first message, but luckily for you, I have some suggestions.
Yes, there is always the trusty, "Hey, this is so-and-so from Bumble," but, um, yawn. You can be a little more creative than that. Your first text can make an impression, so it's worth showing a little bit of personality. That doesn't mean you have to immediately send them nudes or they'll move on (and if they do, this match probably isn't a good one anyway — unless you explicitly are looking for a steamier relationship). If you want to seamlessly transition from matching, to texting, to flirting, and finally to dating, then these text suggestions should get you there in no time. Press send and watch those three little dots bubble up faster than you can say, "Are you free for drinks on Thursday night?"
