You found an interesting profile during your online dating search/swipes/etc., so how do you start the conversation with them?

Most online dating sites have localized page content that attempts to draw in those searching Google/etc. locally (e.g. “Toronto Jewish singles” or “Toronto Jewish dating”). In most cases, these pages are programmatically created and are essentially a large browse directory that follow the lines of dating profile parameters (e.g. pages created that are organized by city, religion, etc. and usually with a mix between them all as well).
The kids over at Global Dating Insights (a decent resource to keep in touch with what is going on in the digital dating industry) introduced us to the Mark Cuban-invested dating app called Courtem.

When BBM opened up to Android and iOS users, it was known that it would come along with advertising. For example, in Android, your “Invite” notification may light up and it will be a “Sponsored Invite” – i.e. an ad that most likely leads you to an app download. You simply “Accept” or “Ignore” the “Invite”. If you accept it, you’re eventually led to the app download.
