I wanted to show that I did read their profile and I wanted to compliment them on something personal about them.
2nd paragraph: I usually started it off by saying; “I agree…, I enjoyed…, I understand what you meant by…” and then followed it up with something from their profile that I agreed with or enjoyed reading about.
It’s insanely difficult to be funny, engaging, interesting, etc., in an opening line with a girl you know nearly nothing about. If not, I could seductively come up behind you and teach you. Also, checking out an adult film on my laptop and calling my friend derogatory names. I’d like to position my groin to take a run at you. – I’m not much of a political guy, but I just had to let you know that after going through your pics, I’m rocking a pretty hard John Boehner. CONFUSING OPENERS: -and trust me, that’s being generous. – Need help with a big decision – should my new yacht have a helipad OR a tennis court sized hot tub OR an aboveground wine cellar filled with gold?
But while you may be a boring dolt who is a complete drain on society, I’m a creative genius, and have perfected the art of openers. – Just enrolled for health insurance via Obamacare. PHILOSOPHICAL OPENERS: – Sometimes I question why God allows bad things to happen to good people. – Fuck, Marry, Kill: Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, Dostoyevsky? Let’s cut to the chase—call me an insensitive, self-involved, immature asshole and break up with me. Been playing with my nephew and his new puppy in a flower patch all day while helping to feed the homeless. – Guess who’s no longer on his parents cell phone bill…?
All these openers have gotten responses for me personally and for many of my clients. If anybody has other openers that work well for them online, post them in the comments.
