Yeah, women should definitely make the first step more often, both in real life and online. It would be better for both genders, as men would feel less like "yet another one", so would put more effort, improving also the quality of the relationship/conversation.
Also, men should understand that girls swipe right little just because many men swipe right to everyone, so for women it's so easy to get a match that they get more selective; so they swipe less right and make less matches, so men have to swipe right a lot to get one, whereas girls only a little. In conclusion, men should as a whole be more selective, but no one seems to understand it.

Most women think “hey” is a boring opener. I don’t see why, seeing as a huge deal of conversations start with “hello”
Yeah, I mean that's the main word everyone uses to greet and start conversation in real life. I don't know why they that. That actually would be a good question to ask on here.
Use Bumble - the girl HAS to send the first message.
I also use bumble but there are not many women in my area
What I do is to use many apps and swipe right only on few girls (the ones who seems more inspiring) say between 20 and 60%, depending on the mood haha.
Doing like this I will match with a reasonable amount of girls even by being somewhat selective, so that for women it won't be guaranteed to match me. This way, they will increase their swiping right and as a consequence, by making easier for men to get matches, men will hopefully swipe right less, bringing balance to the online dating world.
