Goes to show you that sometimes a random, friendly person at a wedding could be the instigator of your future wedding.
The "be a guest on my podcast" message
If the attraction is mutual, just about anything works as an icebreaker… even a clumsy attempt to get someone on your podcast.
Charla was a participant on a reality TV show; a detail David used to get closer to her with this text:
"Charla, we spoke a month or so about my podcast… want to get together for an interview next weekend? You can also plug whatever you are working on."
David feels a little embarrassed about it looking back. "I'm such a loser," he says. "I met Charla asking her to be on a podcast." That interview turned into a date, and now they have two daughters. It's a good reminder that stressing over opening lines is totally unnecessary. If you like each other, it doesn't much matter what you say.
The "how have you been?" message
"Leo and I met in fourth grade, so I don't have our first messages," Simonette says. "But I do have his first Facebook message to me." That showstopper reads: "Simi, I haven't talked to you in years!!!! hows college treating you? u like your classes??"
