If you want to streamline things, you can pay to see who’s already swiped right on you, but at the end of the day, the you’re going to just have to make the best profile you can and wait. – Writing a nice, funny and intelligent online dating message only to have it ignored; It may not have been nice, funny and intelligent enough. Or it may have gotten lost in the churn, because women get an number of messages that range from “‘sup” to “can I fuck them titties”. So that first date is, literally, a case of seeing whether you and your date have any compatibility at all.
