Messages to send this Christmas

Friday, December 23rd, 2016


You may be surprised to find out that the Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year for online dating websites, with only New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s day pipping them to the post.

Lots of existing members take time out of their busy schedules to log in to their online dating account and thousands of new people take the plunge and join online dating websites such as Muddy Matches.

So, it’s the perfect time of year to send lots of dating messages.

Wish them a Merry Christmas

A simple “Merry Christmas” at this time of year will be a good icebreaker and will hopefully get the conversation started.

In an ideal world, they will reply asking you about your Christmas. However, if they are away for Christmas in an area with poor 3G/4G you might not get a reply for a while.

Ask them how their Christmas was

From Boxing Day onwards, you can say “Hi, how are you? Did you had a good Christmas?” Asking questions is a useful way to encourage interaction as people like to talk about themselves.

Ask about their plans for the New Year

If you live close by to your date, you could mention where you are going on New Year’s Eve and ask about their plans. For example, “Hi, how are you? Are you up to much over the New Year? I’m heading to the Red Lion for New Year’s Eve if you are heading there too pop over and say hello.”

Go for a classic message

Complementing someone’s profile text, or pointing out what you have in common is appropriate at any time of year and will show that you have taken the time to find out about them rather than posting the same message to lots of different people.

For example, you could say “Hi, your profile caught my eye, I never thought I’d find a fellow dairy farmer who loves to salsa dancing”.
