It’s Time to Get to Know Your Matches

Featured Blogger: Christina Voors It becomes a routine. You swipe left, swipe right, and acquire your matches.  Now is the time you are supposed to get to know these potential partners, right?    Unfortunately, far too often these matches are left in a deserted pile of  unfulfilled communication. Perhaps it was due to a simple text killer, such as ‘k’ or  ‘cool’, that ended the entire conversation. Maybe it was simply due to disinterest in  the conversation at hand.     No matter what the cause, it made me wonder: how many of these failed  connections could have been really great in person? Who have we missed out on  because we didn’t have the chance to get to know the person on the other side of the  screen?    Well, it’s time we discuss some tips and tricks on how to best ensure that you don’t lose out on some great opportunities:    Ask open-ended questions: If it can be answered with a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’,  rephrase to encourage longer answers.  For example, instead of asking ‘do you like  your job’, rephrase into ‘how do you like your job’. Simple changes can bring forward a much more engaging conversation.    Share music: It is amazing how much conversation can be opened up by  sharing music you enjoy. It brings a deeper level of communication, discussing how  the songs did or didn’t resonate with you and why.    Go off the beaten path: Some matches will have an influx of messages, all  more-or-less the same. These become easy messages to ignore, as they feel …
