We get asked all the time: What should I say to that woman I matched with on Hey! VINA? Luckily, it’s easier than ever to communicate with your vinas, and we’ve got some tips for you right here:
A LITTLE LIGHT STALKING NEVER HURT ANYBODY
To create the perfectly personalized first message, you may need to look around your new vina’s profile a little bit. Read her bio again, check out her quiz results, and read her answers to the 3 essential VINA questions. You’re bound to discover something interesting about her that you’re genuinely curious about or find something that you didn’t realize you had in common! Both are fodder for a great first message. 😊
JUST SAY “HEY!”
There’s no reason to get fancy with it! Just say hey, introduce yourself, and ask her meet up. Chatting through the platform forever won’t get you your new best friend. You have to meet up IRL. The best way to do that is just to make plans right away!
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF NEW FEATURES
Lucky for you there a ton of new-ish features you might not have taken advantage of yet, but that can definitely help you craft the perfect first message to your new vina!
- Communities – Swiping in a Community guarantees you have something in common with your match! Simply tap the “VINA” on the top of the profile swiping page and choose your Community. Your stack will be updated with vinas in that Community! Matched with a vina while swiping in the Yogi Community? Ask her to try out that new class with you.
- Personalized introduction messages – Your introduction message from Olivia at VINA is now personalized! The message now takes you and your match’s quiz answers into account. She’ll tell you what you have in common and take the guesswork out of choosing a first vina-date!
- New quizzes – Hallelujah! We are now rolling out new quizzes so you can get to know your vinas even better through our app and have something to do while you wait at the dentist. 😉 Now you can message your vina about her results (are you a Venus or a Saturn?) and compare answers.
Hope these tips help! Now go forth and message all the vinas!
