Recently, I was swiping through a dating app, and a guy used a line on me that was honestly pretty impressive. So impressive that I actually asked him if I could write about it. Because, seriously, when it comes to opening lines to use on dating apps during the holidays, this guy took the (fruit) cake. It was snowing the day that he messaged me and said, "I am about to brave this snow to go see my friend, so, if I don't make it, just know that I thought you were cute and would've liked to take you out some time."
Once I got back up from being swept off my feet, I wrote, "Danggggggg that's a good line. I am impressed."
If I am good at anything it is ruining the ~moment~ with dating writer commentary. Anyways... if you like that opening line, stay tuned because I have compiled a whole list of holiday season opening lines. (Just in case you aren't as suave as this guy.)
When you're brainstorming a good quote for an opening line on a dating app, you actually have some data on your side. According to Hinge, if your match is between the ages of 18 to 23 years old, they will likely appreciate an opening line with novelty or humor in it. If your match is between the ages of 24 to 28, your date will likely appreciate a question about their lifestyle or hobbies. Tinder tells Elite Daily that 32.4 percent of men and 35.2 percent of women prefer the opening line they receive to be a question about them. And, the good news is that both of these concepts can match any season you can think of. So stay tuned for tips on being festive and flirty this holiday season.
