From engagement 📈 to engagement 💍
Ok, so chatting via these various dating apps can be a bit challenging. Like, what do you say when you found yourself a match? Dutch dating app Inner Circle found that messages that don’t show much creativity, such as ‘Hey’, ‘Hi’ and ‘Hello’ only get a 21% response rate in the UK and 12% in NL.
To tackle this they came up with a ban on the word ‘Hey’ and similar words. For every opening that starts with ‘Hey’, they inform the user that it’s not a creative opening and help them a little bit. Resulting in various pick up lines, generated by the system.
