Dating Sunday, aka the busiest day of the year for online dating is fast approaching, and tbh, we're not quite as prepared as we'd like. Hilarious, curious or adorably awkward, whatever your flirting technique, we've gone and done the hard work for you! 

*music plays* *it’s the final countdown*

It could be the sage stuffing still clouding our brains, or the back-to-work blues, but nailing that first conversation starter, right off the bat can be tricky. And this Sunday, 6 January or 'Dating Sunday', we're likely to more potential matches than on any other day year and we need to bring our A game. 

But help is at hand, we've scoured the internet and collated the sparks that will light all sorts of flames - funny/cute/weird, whatever their vice.  

From fire memes to low-key messages, scroll on for some surefire conversation-starting inspiration (try saying that a few times).

 Write: Please tell me you have a better NYE story than I do!

When you want to show off a skill that's not already advertised in your profile pics...

When dental hygiene is really important to you...

Because your NY resolutions are equally reflective of your soul (and basicness)...

Ask: What’s your least basic resolution? Mine is trying to find and eat more Milky Way Midnights.

When you want your agenda to be clear from the start...

When you want to show your entrepreneurial side... 

When you're keen to get your height across ASAP...

When you want to communicate you can be a bit of a mess, but also are down with some healthy stuff...

Write: On a scale of one to Nature Valley bar, how messy was your 2018?

When you'll do anything for love...
