Communication

To GIF, Or Not To GIF?

Pin it

It comes as no surprise that we now have to navigate another communication trend in the ever-evolving world of online dating: The GIF. A few months ago, Tinder added the option for its users to send GIF’s to each other, a trend jumped upon by numerous dating apps since.

While we are all a sucker for a good GIF, the question is how does one fit into our (obviously perfected) dating banter? Luckily for you, we have found the perfect GIF for each awkward/sexy/interesting scenario.

Here are a selection to keep in your back pocket:

“Hey, you’re really cute and I would like you to initiate conversation please.”
