So you’ve set up the perfect online dating profile with your best profile pic. While there’s plenty of fish in the sea, you want to catch one.And it’s hard to get the girl (or guy) if you never communicate.
Don’t feel you have to sell yourself or introduce yourself too much – as we’ve said, they’ll definitely visit your profile and read about you there. Plus, the shorter your first email, the more intriguing you’ll be. You might say you’re busy and leading a fun, full life, but if you’re sending emails at 9.00 on a Saturday night, how busy can you be..?
Similarly, if you claim to love your job but the time stamp on your message says you sent it at 9.30 on a Monday morning, your reader might doubt your career ethic.
No traditional greeting at least earns the reply rate of 27%.
Overall, more informal standard greetings did very well.
Stick to neutral hours, like lunchtimes and early evening.
Ideally, write it before you leave the house to do something interesting. Have fun writing your emails, and enjoy the process of meeting someone new.The easiest way to start a conversation with anyone new is to ask a question, so include one.Tailor it to their interests or their work, or even one of their photos.It might sound strange, but no one wants to hear these physical compliments.Data shows words like “sexy,” “beautiful,” “hot,” and “cutie,” do not receive many responses.That way you’ll be in a positive mood, you won’t be tempted to write too much, and you’ll be too busy to keep checking for a reply. And when you do, we’ll be pleased to receive an email from you, telling us all about it.
