The Best Time to Message a Woman Online

A woman texting

Starting a conversation with a woman while online dating can be a bit of an artform—you want to say something that catches her attention, makes her feel like you’re interested but not obsessed, and entices her to write back. But did you ever stop to think it might not be what you say but when you say it?

We all know that when it comes to love, timing is everything. As it turns out, online dating is no different. According to data from the over 38 million members on the online dating site Zoosk, there’s actually a prime time for when women use the site. So, if you’re looking for a quick hack to help you get more responses, you might want to pay attention to this online dating sweet spot:

The best time to message a woman online is between 9:45 and 11:00 at night.

Why? Because most women use online dating sites between 10:00 and 11:00 in the evening. If you want your message to be at the top of her list (or better yet, if you want to catch her while she’s online and start chatting) that’s the best time to say hello.

And it may give you a real advantage. According to the same Zoosk data, the majority of men use online dating sites between 9:00 and 10:00 in the morning.

So next time you’re about to press send, you might want to take advantage of this small online dating hack and wait for the evening. It might just get you noticed.
