According to Buzzfeed, sending a GIF on Tinder increases your likelihood of getting a response by 30%. ” In a funny first message, the online dater shows interest in Michaela’s pictures, pays a compliment to her dog, asks a solid question, and makes a flirtatious suggestion.
That’s a strong incentive to start adding GIFs to your dating repertoire. Whether it’s Jimmy Fallon saying “Haaaay” or Joey Tribbiani saying “How you doin’? All these elements combined create a memorable and appealing introduction. If you ask me, a little wordplay is just good foreplay.
The dating site offers examples like, “Would you rather always find a parking space or always find your missing keys?
” or “Would you rather be invisible or be immortal? You could ask, “Would you rather have a puppy-sized elephant or an elephant-size puppy for a pet?
