Start an Single Sikhs Conversation

"Hi" will sometimes get you a response but it might not get you the response you expect. Here are some conversation starters that might help!

1. Pick one thing on their profile and make it fun.  Make it fun in a light-hearted way. Show the other member you have taken the time to read their profile and see if they have the same humour as you .

2. Feel free to ask a personal question. Everyone loves talking about themselves, and trading personal stories is a great way to get things rolling (and will give you something to talk about on the first date). Just keep it light. "What's the most embarrassing thing you did in school?" is fun. "What's your deepest regret?" is not and maybe a bit intense.

3. Type this sentence: "So, where should we get together and meet?" You already know that this person likes you, because they were interested in you or sent you a message, etc. I guess the overall point of dating on Single Sikhs is finding and meeting your perfect Sikh soulmate in real life and not finding a pen pal.

4. Send an invite in emojis: Using tiny pictures instead of words somehow makes writing a long message in an essay less intimidating. You're also displaying your prowess with an iPhone and testing their ability to translate pictures into words. Three birds. One stone.

5. Try a total non sequitur like, "Hey! Where have you been?!" I don't exactly know why, but people really respond to this. Maybe because it acknowledges the silliness of online dating without explicitly complaining about online dating, which can come off as a bit rich since you are, you know, online dating. Maybe it's because it shows that you don't take yourself too seriously and are maybe just a little bit kooky. It's sort of like falling down as soon as you walk into a party: It's scary for a second, but breaks the ice so fast and so thoroughly that everyone can let their guard down.

6. "What's the best movie/book/meal you saw/read/ate in the past year?" A specific question about something someone will remember with fondness is a lot more interesting to answer than, "What do you do for a living?" Also, maybe you also loved that book/movie/food item, and now you guys have something in common and are going to be watching rom coms!

These are just some of the tips you can use to either strike up a conversation or some questions to ask whilst your getting to know one another, but being yourself is very important and you should never try and be something that you are not.

Although these are useful tips, sometimes the other member may not respond in the way you thought they may or not at all. This can be for a variety of reasons and it is important to remember your Sikh soulmate is out there waiting for you and the right message to be sent to them.
