How to Message a Match

So, you both swiped right and the match is made! The next step is sending that first nerve-racking message that can possibly decide your fate!

Sounds like a lot of pressure, right? Well it doesn’t need to be.

The initial introduction can really be hard for some people and with good reason — you never know how much emphasis your match puts on the introduction and to be honest it’s a hard balance of standing out but being authentic to yourself. But the absolute best thing you can do is keep it simple and be yourself. Sometimes a message that seems too “try hard” is a sure way of NOT getting a response.

The Best Introductions

The Worst Introductions

Eg. You’re really smart vs your profile is really interesting

The most important thing is to be genuine and true to your personality while tailoring your conversation so that your match knows you are interested. Of course, not everyone is going to be the one, but always be respectful.

May Allah (swt) guide you to your perfect match! Ameen.
