I was just checking out ads and debating replying to one or two, when I realized I have no idea what to say! It's really been that long since we've attempted this route, as we have typically stuck to just meeting people at clubs and socials. The occasions that we do contact people it's usually because they will be at a party/social we are attending so it gives us an easy opener.
I was surprised, upon looking, that this isn't a topic that's been discussed in quite a while. So, what is your best opener when replying to ads? Or for that matter, what do you like to see when you get replies?
