    I've been on online dating for about 10 days or so now- haven't seriously been using it as I'm not convinced by it yet*. However I got matched up with this girl that seems really interesting...just don't know what I should do or say? Also she lives 40mins away.
    That doesn't bother me as such, but I can't really be bothered with that if its very early stages.

    Anyway, it's eharmony if anyone is familiar. You can send 'smiles' or select 5 questions and send them- should I do that or just straight up message her?

    *I much rather meet people in person, rather than online. However I'm a Christian so meeting other Christians can be very hard.

    Honestly m8 it doesn't make much difference what you say, it's 90% looks for online dating. If she isn't interested she will ignore your messages or give one word replies.

    I've never used a dating app but I met my partner online via a message board. You could try that..going into a message board for Christians if that's important to you and just chatting to people.

    But if you're using the app, I'd say a personalised message is better than the smiley or the poll

    Meeting Christians is hard? have you tried church?
