How To Slide In The DMs, The Unthirsty Way!
Yea, we're going there. It happens. One minute you're scrolling on social media, and the next minute you're caught off guard by the sight of an Angel. What's next? Well, if you're normal the obvious next step is to stalk their social media. Right? Yes! You have a 5 LIKE LIMIT! Like pictures that capture what you like about that person (like them back to back so it shows up that way in their notifications).
Preparing To Slide
If you haven't gotten any play by the person after a few days, then it's time to take it up a notch! Before sliding, you need to figure out why you want to. Is it for a hook up, to link up, just want to chat, whatever it is, you need to figure it out so you can develop a strategy. Also it's for you to get clarity, so you don't get involved with someone having unclear intentions. It's a waste of everybody's time! So to repeat, set your intentions! Answer to yourself: Why do I want to slide into this person's DMs?
Sliding Into The DMs
This is the trickiest part of it all! You want to make contact; but, you don't want to make yourself look like a creep either. First, pick a time to DM! If it's for a romantic reason, DM later in the day, that way the other person knows what's up.
Now if you're trying to DM a business or something secular, the best time to DM is early in the day (that way whatever subject you're bringing to their attention comes up first thing in the morning). Now that you know what time you want to DM, get to thinking about your message. How do you want them to view you? You want to be alluring, charming, and down to earth. When deciding what to type, go for creativity and take your time. Do at least 3 revisions after typing it out. Put effort into your DM to make it good, you only get one shot so make it count!
All right super star, you sent the DM! Take a minute to celebrate yourself. After sending a DM, to get the best results, PUT THE SOCIAL MEDIA AWAY! Do NOT, i repeat, DO NOT, keep checking to see if you got a response every 5 minutes. Go find something to do for the rest of the day to take your mind off of it. Don't obsess because usually when you do that you don't get a response back. Manifest a response by detaching from it and when it shows up, it shows up. Works every time. You're welcome!
