How to write a dating email
My question: What’s the one thing I can do in my Match email to make sure you’ll respond. First thing to consider is something you probably think little about: your subject line. So, don’t send a third, fourth, or fifth message to someone. A third attempt comes off as desperate and obsessed.To elucidate her point, Olivia sent me a screengrab of her inbox. I have had some guys seriously send multiple messages with no responses.If someone writes a great, engaging email, but is only average looking, I may still respond.Just because someone is hot doesn’t mean I’m going to respond, either.Oh, and before she finished, Olivia hand one more It’s Not a Match credo to reinforce: If you want to get my attention, your only bet is to send an email, because that’s the only reason I’m going to look at your profile. In almost every aspect of life, we go after the things we want. Hire a trainer or up the ante during your workouts.The “amazing” and “great” ones get responses even if the guy is just average looking. Of course this doesn’t apply to me, I’m not even close to average looking.Unless you consider a mix of the boyish charm of Ryan Gosling with the smokey masculinity of Denzel Washington average.
It’s advice that I believe applies to all of us, whether we’re searching for a cute older straight guy or an exotic younger lesbian lady. She’s happy to answer more questions, so if you have any quandaries of your own, send them my way, and I’ll see what we can do.
Olivia offers a good deal of advice on what a guy (or girl, for that matter) 50 other guys have asked her “how are you”, “any plans for the weekend”, “how is your week going”, so don’t be surprised when I don’t answer if that’s the ENTIRE text of your message.
