Just as you got your head together and wrote a solid dating profile, you’re going to have to compose that all important first email, and even if writing is not your strong suit, we can help you get through it.
I don’t understand why people have to change their etiquette just because they are behind a computer screen.
So you’ve decided to spend some time (and maybe a tiny bit of money) on an online dating website.
I delete messages with the usual, “How are you doing”, “I like your pictures” and nothing more (not even a name). That would never happen in a face to face meeting, right?
I don’t understand why people have to change their etiquette just because they are behind a computer screen. Any kind of “line” smells like 4-day old fish; it stinks!
Just like flirting in person, you don’t want to go overboard and “attack” a total stranger with your bone crushingly perfect email introduction.
Responding within a couple of hours of their interest will make you look desperate, even a bit creepy.
If you’re responding to another person’s interest, you have a couple of days to think about what you want to say and how to say it.
If, on the other hand, you’re writing to someone whose profile you’ve seen and makes YOU interested, rejoice — you have even more time to work on your email.
Approach your intro letter as if it were a business letter or a college essay — something important that is worth spending time on. You don’t want to sound like an idiot, and you must be sure to put your best foot forward.
