Online dating gives you a bit of an advantage in that you can strategically plan that first message so it hits home with a bit of a punch.
Unlike an everyday face to face meeting where the words just tumble from your mouth in no apparent order.
Here is a list of some of the best online dating opening messages I have used.

Now that you’ve had a week or two to write up your profile and dip your toe into the world of online dating, it’s time to take a step back and take stock.
