Most of us have attempted to “Slide into the DM’s” that’s no question. The real question is were you successful? Now this all depends on what one is trying to achieve, but, for this case lets say the goal is to retrieve a phone number. Recently Twitter has changed the direct message character count limit to 10,000! Realistically that doesn’t matter because if your personal goal is to get someones phone number and you couldn’t do it in 140 characters what makes you think you could with more? (Yes that’s a Challenge) But how do you achieve your goal? Well that’s what the Chipper staff is here to do, be the ultimate wing man!

  • Approach, don’t come out guns blazing man, saying things that are rude and inappropriate. Be respectful, you’re already showing interest by initiating the conversation.
  • Know when to stop, don’t sit there and message her 7 times because she isn’t responding. She most likely saw it and is ignoring you. Harsh truth.
  • Have a base, don’t message some random woman because she’s “fine”  make sure that you’ve talked to this person already. Chances are if you’ve talked to her before she won’t mind talking to you again.
  • Be yourself, don’t try to be someone you’re not. If they’re going to invest time into you, you should be who you really are.
  • Compliments, (self control guys) don’t sit there and talk to her about how curvaceous she is or about how “hot” you think she may be. (Smile, eyes etc.)
  • Keep it simple, if you’re gonna go for then do it short and sweet.
  • Keep it PG
  • Don’t be a weirdo
  • Start it off with either something funny and dumb, or something short and to the point.
    • Example #1: Are you copper and tellurium? Because you are CuTe
    • Example #2: Hey

(Chipper staff is not responsible for any misconduct of the above information, nor do we encourage the act of “Sliding in the DM’s” unless you’ve succeeded in such an act. Then good job bud.)
