Trust, it'll help to draw someone who's more in line with your tastes. I'm all for doing you and trading "LOLs" and "OMGs" between friends, but someone's first impression may be to take you less seriously if there's an abundance of internet talk on your profile.
In the intricate dance of love, someone gets to invite and initiate, and someone gets to respond and reciprocate.
Oh, so weird, you like movies and you also like dogs? So weird, you thought you were the first to come up with the bad joke "We'll tell everyone we met at X location that's not Tinder/Hinge/Bumble/OK Cupid"?
It's a common complaint that women on dating sites suffer from a "water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink" scenario: They're bombarded with messages, but receive few from anyone they'd actually want to date.
It turns out there's a simple solution to that problem—and most women haven't discovered it. There will be more messages from people you want to date in your inbox if you initiate conversations yourself.
Plus, women are 2.5 times as likely as men to get responses, and 30 percent of message threads initiated by straight women (but only 12 percent initiated by straight men) turn into dates.
Yet women—particularly straight women—tend to initiate fewer conversations than men.
This is important because the first moves in the dance of dating often set the tone for the entire relationship.
