Being on a dating website without sending a message is a little like going to the supermarket without any money, or bank cards.

However, sending a message can be quite daunting if you don’t know what to write and if you are scared of rejection.

We have put together a collection of templates that you can adapt and send to potential dates to take some of the stress out of the process.

The funny profile

Some people put effort into making sure that their sense of humour comes across in their profile. If you were impressed with their lyrical prowess, this is the message for you. Hopefully they will take the opportunity to see what they like about your profile.


“You profile really made me laugh, it’s good to see someone who has a cracking sense of humour.”

Shared hobbies

One of the fantastic things about joining a niche dating website is that you will find people enjoy the same hobbies and interests as you do. If you find someone who enjoys the same thing as you, then you can use it as a way to open up conversation.

“Hi, I see that you’re into [insert hobby/interest]. Have you tried [insert something related to your shared hobby]? I’d love to give it a go sometime if you’d fancy joining me?”

Don’t I know you from somewhere?

If you are pretty sure that you have seen your potential date somewhere before, then this is the message template for you.

“Hi, I know this might sound strange, but I think I’ve met you before. Did you go to [insert school/ social event]?

Shared friends

Similarly, you may find that you vaguely recognise someone as a friend of a friend.

“Hi, how are you? I think I’ve met you once before. Are you friends with [insert name]?

Suggest meeting at an event

If you are heading to a popular event like a festival, or a show you could see if they are going too.

“Hello, I saw that you are interested in [insert interest]. Are you heading to [insert event]? I’m going to be going there with a group of friends if you fancy saying hello”.

Suggest a date

This option is good if you are keen to get straight to the point.

“Hi, I like your profile and think that we would have loads in common. I wondering if you would like to meet for a drink sometime?”

All of these ideas are just suggestions, so feel free to write whatever you like as long as it isn’t rude or offensive.
