POF Opening Lines That Work [On Just About Any Woman!]

Struggling to get a response from attractive women with your current POF opening lines? You’re not alone - getting quality women to respond is no easy feat.

In fact, dating app AYI’s statistics show the average guy has to send 114 messages just to be 99% certain that you’ll get one reply.

What if we told you the quickest and easiest way to get the responses you want doesn’t involve writing dozens of messages? In fact, it’s as easy as pressing three keys - “control”, “C”, and “V”.

That’s right - copy and paste. And we’re going to give you some killer examples of POF opening lines that actually work, so you’ll be setting up dates with attractive women in no time!

Messages That Work For Any Woman

If you’re one of those guys who has been leading with “Hey, baby” or “ur beautiful”, you already know that doesn’t work.

To get a response from the most popular women (read: hottest) on POF, your opening line has to accomplish several goals:

  1. Grab her attention - her inbox is crammed full of messages from guys just like you.
  2. Pique her curiosity - if she doesn’t feel an emotional connection to your message, she’s going to move on to the next one.
  3. Asks her a question - you want to make it easy for her to respond, and the best way to do that is to ask her something that’s fun to think about.

These examples check all three boxes, and they are personal enough that she thinks you’ve read her profile, but not so specific that you can’t use them on just about anyone:

Example 1:

This message works because you’re paying her a light compliment that’s not based on her looks, and you’re asking her a question that’s fun to think about and answer. But both the compliment and the subject (travel) are broad enough that it works on anyone.

Example 2:

Here’s an example of a message that’s slightly challenging. “Interesting” is kind of a neutral comment - you’re implying she needs to prove she’s someone you want to know better. That’s an alpha male move that really works - you know you’re the prize, and she needs to show she’s worthy of your time.

Most people love to talk about themselves, and this gives her the chance to do just that.

Messages That Work For Specific Women

Once you’ve found an attractive woman you want to message, all you need to do is rapidly skim her profile to see if she has any common interests that you’re targeting with specific messages.

Here are some examples of POF opening lines you could sent to any women you find who are into skiing, wine tasting, or reading “nerdy” books:

You can write messages like these for any common interest or scenario you find in profiles, like traveling or photos taken with a cute pet, for example.

The more frequently you find it in the profiles you browse, the more you’ll be able to use your carefully-crafted message.

The structure of the message is pretty simple:

Connect with her on an interest of hers (ideally one that you have in common), and then ask a question geared toward the topic at hand (skiing, hiking, reading, etc.)

Research has found people feel more comfortable with other people who remind them of themselves, so connecting via a similar interest pays off. Comfort leads to trust, which leads to saying “yes” to a date.

As you can see, crafting the perfect Plenty of Fish opening line isn’t about thoroughly reading every profile and painstakingly creating message after message for each girl that you like.

It’s about finding a message that works, and using it again and again.

Just one caveat… POF doesn’t like copy & paste. If you do too much of it, you could get into trouble. So what we recommend doing is just changing one word in each message. That’s all it takes to stay completely under the radar.
