1. Geography can determine which openers are best

New Yorkers like openers that suggest “escaping reality”, while people in Washington, D.C. prefer talking about fast food, according to Business Insider. Chicagoans like to talk about 90s pop culture.

The worst openers, statistically speaking, are hey, what’s up and other similarly boring openers.

2. Women tend to be more patient

Also according to Business Insider, women are more patient after a match takes place; female response rates drop by only 5 percent when six hours go by without any messages being exchanged. If men don’t get a message within the first six hours, however, then their response rates drop by 25 percent.

3. Add an element of vulnerability

If you throw a line into your bio that says something like ‘I’m really bad at karaoke’, or ‘I’m completely and utterly addicted to Game of Thrones, it can help you come off as more likable according to Men’s Health.

It’s kind of like the crack on the Liberty Bell; the imperfection makes it more endearing.

4. Don’t be the “feeler of feelings”

GQ described this pretty funny archetype you should avoid:

About him: “I’m a dreamer, plain and simple.”

Says he’s looking for: “My muse, my Helen of Troy. A woman who wants to stay up all night smoking Gauloises and talking about Keats.”

Is actually looking for: A woman who will listen to him talk all night. While listening to music. That he wrote. About his ex, Heather.

5. Convey the right tone

Your bio, photos and opening messages should blend together to give the other person a sense of your personality.

According to Mashable:

It’s a challenge as a novelist to convey characters in meaningful ways — it’s no less demanding for a person writing, or reading, dating profiles. It’s key to read between the lines to get a sense of whether the person seems well-adjusted — pleasant, friendly and reasonable, someone you would be drawn to if you met him or her in person, even if you didn’t know her top five favorite movies.
