    How to start an Instagram conversation with a boy or girl

    How to start a chat on Instagram

    Now that you understand how to use the Instagram dedicated to private messages, you are wondering how to start a conversation on instagram with a guy o how to start a conversation on instagram with a girl, since you would like some advice on how to approach this person in the right way? Then you will be happy to know that I have several general suggestions for you in this regard.


    The first thing you need to know is that there is no 100% "right" way to start a chat with a girl or a boy, but surely you can start by taking a cue from the content that the person in question publishes. For example, take a look at her profile bio Instagram, or even at photo that he recently published: maybe in addition to the photos themselves, there may be some Captions accompanying person and you could use the information in them as a starting point for an interesting conversation.



    Of course, if it's someone you don't know very well, it might also be useful to look at them stories that he publishes, to understand what type he is and what his interests are. Taking a cue from this information you will surely find the right idea to start the conversation.

    Once you've found the starting point to start the conversation, you need to try to make a good impression, especially with the first message. In this regard, try to be original and don't use clichés: write a message trying to arouse the interest and curiosity of the person you want to chat with, perhaps even asking a question at the end of the sentence, to stimulate the continuation of the conversation.

    Still talking about the form of writing, I want to remind you that this is very important: in the Instagram private chat there are no character limits, therefore, I suggest you avoid using abbreviations and any type of SMS-style language. This is not only an aesthetic question, but also a necessity, since abbreviations could lead to misunderstandings of the written text.


    It is equally important, to make a good impression, take care of the spelling and grammar of your messages: it might seem obvious to say it, but a message full of errors certainly does not make a good first impression.

    Last but not least (indeed!), Always remember to be kind and polite, Over which patient: If you have written a message to a girl or a boy and this person does not reply immediately, do not insist on getting an answer immediately, otherwise you could be "annoying" and cause this person to have a negative feeling towards you.
