Advice for the Apps.

  • Reference something hyper-specific in your romantic interest’s bio (Oh, you’re a Pisces too? Do you, like me, often spend weekends weeping in your bedroom?)
  • Call out a popular meme — folks love meme banter (Have you seen the one where they make focaccia in quarantine?)
  • Ask a direct, obvious question (what are you having for dinner tonight?)
  • Go for a question that has absolutely no relevance to either of you (What do you think Vince Vaughn is doing right now?)
  • Greet said stranger all too familiarly (Janice!!! How the hell are ya?)
