“Are dating apps dead?” I found myself asking my single girl squad the other day. Not necessarily, we concluded — but more and more, people are turning to social media to find a date rather than swiping on an app. It makes sense why — on a social media profile, you can get a more well-rounded picture of someone than a carefully curated dating profile meant only to attract (but not necessarily a full picture – it is still just a profile, after all).
So okay, you’ve found a new online crush — or maybe you’ve spotted that hottie from the coffee shop online. You want to reach out — but how? Of course, there’s no one size fits all approach since everyone is different, but here are some general guidelines that will point you in the right direction (and that direction is lurv). Read on for our advice on the best way to reach out on the various social networking platforms.
