Initiating more conversations

Women are becoming more confident about initiating conversations on dating apps, too. Of course, we always had apps that only allowed for women to start the conversations, but across many platforms, there’s been a surge in women sending that first DM. In fact, the research showed women sending 28.5 percent more first messages in January of 2021 compared to January of 2020. That’s a massive jump. Additional figures show that women get rewarded for being bold, getting a response 2.5 times as often as men do who sent the first message. So maybe as ladies told their friends about their success sending that first message, their buddies jumped on board.
