A lot of people talk about opening lines, whether by debating the best thing to say to get someone's attention or by taking screenshots of the most awkward ones.
But Hinge, a popular dating app that introduces users to friends of friends, says it has figured out the best lines to initiate conversation.
Women, on the other hand, are 40% more likely to respond to food-related opening lines.
Hinge says you should message men right away because their attention spans tend to be shorter.
If you're trying to chat up someone who is 24 to 28, Hinge says to start a conversation based around lifestyle or activities, so ask about brunch preferences or what the person likes to do on a Sunday.
