She’ll be looking for her purple cow – that one email that stands out like a sore thumb. That one email that makes her say “I’ve got to get to know this guy”. You need to create an email that accomplishes the 3 golden rules of an online dating first email… I tell you what – if you respond back to this email with a time for me to contact you on IM, I’ll show you a guy that’s NOTHING like the other guys on this site.
After all, most people’s profiles don’t exactly give you a ton of material to work with, do they? Ask yourself if what you’re writing sounds completely original.
So how do you cobble together something from a pile of nothing? If not, the person you’re contacting probably has 10 emails just like yours sitting on the computer screen. Even though you’re writing to someone out of the blue, do so with the belief that this person would be lucky to have you. Your profile ultimately does the selling; your email just has to pique their interest.
She’ll have 50 messages from men on the same site you’re signed up for.
Most of the subject lines will read something like “26/m Boston” or “hey there sexy”.
Sure, she’ll probably open a few of those, but after a while, they all start sounding the same.
She’ll get bored of reading the same nonsense over and over again.
But I’ve come to believe that men, specifically, say they want funny and original. But I wonder if there’s anything more to it than my own personal experience.
But when it comes to acting on that statement, most of them don’t. In fact, I think I’m posting this on JDaters Anonymous.
How’s about instead of exchanging perverted pics, let’s talk about what we’re looking for in a partner over some drinks this weekend? I read through your profile and, as you will notice, we’re both looking for the same things in a partner. And, let’s face it, I’m a pretty darn good looking dude!
