The struggle in the world of online dating is real. Perhaps the hardest part of being successful using it is getting past that initial opening line. If you’re not having much success with yours, dating app Hinge is here to help.

Some of the interesting things they discovered is that the success of opening lines varied by things like where you live, how old you are, and of course, what gender you are.
