As I discuss in my free online dating guide, successful online dating relies in part on making great first impressions.
Whether the first impression is in the photos you select for your profile, how you describe yourself, or the first email you write, taking time to make the best first impression is important.
Sure, it’s a pain to actually read through profiles and send unique messages to each person, but aren’t you here to find a date?
Learn a little something about the person you’re messaging, and reference that in your communiqué.
Responding to a few items in a person’s profile will take somewhere between three and eight sentences; if you find yourself writing a six-paragraph missive, work that delete key.
We can tell when your message is copied and pasted to multiple people.
The next stage is either to sit and wait to be contacted by a potential date, or to look through the site and proactively start sending messages to potential dates yourself.
“Hey gurl, luv ur pics” is not going to get a response.
More likely to get a response: A message that is directly responsive to several things in the object of your affection’s profile.
From this mysterious place, you start a conversation, and learn about each other as you go.
When scanning a girls online dating profile, it’s best to operate in much the same way. Online dating for men is a numbers game, and the more messages you’re able to send out, the more chances you have to make a connection during the time you have available.
