Why Women Should Initiate the Conversation Online

Posted by Ria, 11 Jul

Most women complain about how they get messages from the wrong guys online - men they don't want to date. So in the end, they see online dating as a failure. However, this can simply be turned around if women moved away from the antiquated notions of dating where the man is expected to make the first move.

Why not initiate the messaging? That way you will get messages from men within your dating preference. According to Jimena Almendares, chief product officer of one of the many dating sites, "People aim high and tend to message someone more attractive than them. This means that women who wait to receive messages could be settling for less."

Another advantage when a woman makes the first move online is that there is a 30% increase in the possibility of the message turning into a meaningful conversation and even a date. Apparently men love the attention too.

So ladies, don't sit just around waiting on potential mates to make the first move. Take advantage of the power of making the first move. Next time you see a guy you like, send a casual greeting or message. To get you started off, read about the "5 Online Dating Messages That Started Relationships" to guide you.
