To save you time, write an introduction about yourself that includes information about yourself (where you live, what you do, etc.). You might include a URL to a video about your home town as a fun way to introduce yourself. Look around the Internet; most localities have some type of introductory video.
Every time you reach out to a new partner, go to your Notebook and add your pre-written introduction to the text box.
Click the + icon and add your introductory note to the chat!
The better your first message, the more likely your partner will respond. And this tip saves your a LOT of time!
