An empty or generic dating profile with little to no info about a person isn’t the death nail to generating conversation.
That being said, it’s important that before you decide to break the ice with this person, you check to see if you are dealing with a fake profile.
You may have been drawn to this person’s dating profile because they have very attractive pictures.
However, do be careful.
Oftentimes, scammers on dating sites will use stolen pictures of very attractive people to lure you into their trap.
A way to tell if you are dealing with a fake dating profile or the dating profile of a scammer is to see if there is very bad grammar and punctuation used in the dating profile essay.
This will often indicate that the person who created the dating profile is not a native speaker of the language that the members of the dating site speak.
Hence, the scammer may be using some kind of internet language translator or using someone who may have very little knowledge of the language to help them construct their dating profile essay.
Really bad grammar and punctuation are telltale signs of a fake profile.
Also, if the person behind the dating profile leaves some kind of personal contact information within body of their dating profile such as an email, website address or phone number, there is a very good chance that this is the dating profile of a scammer.
Oftentimes, scammers will leave some kind of contact information within the body of their dating profiles in order to get people to contact them privately and thereby take them away from the dating site.
This way, the scammers can proceed to take advantage of the person through getting the person’s personal financial information or getting that person to send them money.
Be very careful with dating profiles that have contact information within them.
If this is an empty or generic dating profile with little to no info, breaking the ice with this person may require that you think outside the box.
Assuming that this is a real person, a good way that you can break the ice with them is to ask them an open-ended question about something that they wrote about with passion on their dating profile.
Normally, asking a person an open-ended question about something that they wrote about with a significant amount of passion in their dating profile is the best approach when trying to break the ice on a dating site.
However, if the dating profile is so empty or generic that there is nothing like this within it, then you may have to use the person’s pictures as your guide.
Take a look at the person’s pictures.
Look for a repetitive theme.
If the person has several pictures that show them engaged in a particular activity, there is a good chance that the person has a lot of passion for that particular activity.
You can use this as your guide to asking the right kind of open-ended question, being that you have an empty or generic dating profile with little to no info about the person.
If, for example, you notice that the person posted several pictures of themselves swimming underwater, perhaps even scuba diving, then the person may have a lot of passion for marine life or the water.
You could use this theme as your guide in asking them an open-ended question.
You could say something like, “How often do you go scuba diving and where?”
This is a very strong opening message that relates to something that this person demonstrated a lot of passion and interest in, based on the number of pictures that they posted to their dating profile that showed them engaged in this particular activity.
Referencing something really relevant to a person’s dating profile often gives them a greater motivation to respond than if you were to send a general generic message.
Try breaking the ice in this way and see if you get a response from the person.
However, as mentioned earlier, try not to get your hopes up.
If this dating profile is this empty or generic and with little to no info about the person, the chances that this is a fake profile are quite high, especially when the person has very attractive pictures.
