The swiping is the easy part. Things become complicated when you both match. It can be hard to think of a good opening line—especially when so many messages don’t get responded to. However, I’ve created a guide of Opening Line Do’s and Don’ts, so you know how to get someone’s attention in the right way.

These rules are short and simple, but they’re sure to do the trick.
