  • First off it is always his looks. It seems shallow but on a dating app you are not seeking friends but potential people to share a life with and share sex with.
    So I have to be attracted to him.
    After that I guess for me authenticity does the trick. Someone who knows what he wants and isn't afraid to say so.
    We also have to have some basic things in common so I guess if I see on his profile that he likes the same music I do, I definitely want to talk to him more.
    So it comes down to :
    -the picture he has and if I find him cute
    -the description he makes of himself
    - if in that description he lists some things I personally like to do too it is on!

    All in all it is pretty subjective!
    I once responded to a guy who I didn't find very attractive but had a description saying that where he lacks in looks he makes up for by being open, funny and attentive.
    I liked his honesty and ability to laugh at himself.

    • Thank you for the response! What if all of his interests/hobbies aren't listed or he just happens to not have any pics that are a little less than ideal eg. non photogenic but he's handsome in person. Would it really be the worse thing to just talk to him and see what happens?

    • Show All
    • What about using the pre made questions or if there wasn't much in your profile to go off of in terms of striking up a conversation?

    • So if there was nothing at all in my profile?
      Was there a picture at least?
      Compliments go a long way. But try compliments that don't rely on beauty itself (ex: instead of saying something like "damn you are hot" try saying something that refers to a deeper compliment as well as her appearance like "you have a wonderful smile I bet you are really kind") ok all that sounds cheesy but you get the idea!
      Premade questions aren't bad also!
      I once responded really enthusiastically to a guy who asked me what song I would choose to listen to if I were stuck on an elevator for the rest of my life.
      I found it original.
      But that's just me and my love of music!
