So, capitalize on this technological advancement, and engage with your paramour by using colorful images. For example, imagine you are talking to someone you are interested in dating. A simple Hello would be an excellent way to start a conversation, but it may not guarantee a reply. However, a picture of a cup of coffee and some breakfast would be a sure shot way to get their attention and get the ball rolling.
