What would be some good advice for writing intro e-mails when meeting people on online dating sites? Topic: Help writing an online dating profile
June 16, 2019 / By Fortune
Question: I find it really hard to write introductory e-mails on an internet dating site. I try to keep them brief and friendly, and I also try to end with an icebreaker type question... though I try to reword that so it's not so impersonal, ie. "If you could see anyone in concert tonight, who would it be?" rather than "What kind of music do you like?" Generally, I either get terse responses, with no follow up question to keep the conversation going, or no answer at all. I did have someone respond to one saying, basically, "Wtf? Why would you ask me that?" But I thought that was obvious... something about his profile caught my eye, and I was trying to start a conversation. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Don't say anything that some one else would say. Be original and to the point. You need to attract their attention right away. It is really up to you to think of what you think would work best. Try different things until you find intro emails that work.

The majority of dating sites (90%) are pretty bogus. They hook you in with pictures of women that have no intentions of ever dating you or anyone else. Then they bait you by showing you all of the available porno sites in which you have to pay for. The few guys I know who have used them tell me that they are worthless. The few legitimate sites (Yahoo, Match.com etc.) have women telling you they want the Knight in shining armour, walks in the park blah blah blah. Of course they know what the man on the site really want and they use that to their advantage. You might be able to find an older women or two who wants a young stud (that seems to be in vogue these days), but you will rarely find a girl your age as they already have there pick of the liter, so to speak. My son has just completed his thesis on electronic dating (he's a behavioral psych student), and he has really discovered a lot that is not only wrong with the process, but also the deceit and trickery that is used. Frankly, you may have to do it the old-fashion way and head to the bars and the clubs, if you're the stud you think you are you shouldn't have any problems. However, if you are going to one of these sites. place your own ad, attach a good picture and you might be surprised at the responses you get. Make sure that the women who respond send you a pic, and make sure its legit. Woman can be just as deceitful as men if not more so. Good Luck and happy hunting

People who are registered on online dating sites are looking for relationships. If you want a bonk, just go out to a club and pick up whatever u can find.

Rule number one..don't give your life story in the first e-mail, the person will think you got issues. A nice compliment to start :) ----------------------------Cool Sites --------------------- http://www.OneRush.com - Urban Social Network, Extreme Dating http://www.MeJab.com is a place for people to vent.

Hmmm...on those sites, you virtually have nothing to lose as long as you haven't met in person, so go ahead and send him another short, friendly e-mail if you really are interested in him. A really good way to get answers is to ask questions that you KNOW they will want to talk about. With guys this can be hard, but try to find things they are interested in and then ask them to expound on the subject. Letters that just say "What's up?" don't really require an answer. Don't worry about it, if he doesn't contact you again...there are so many more out there. I speak from experience. I was writing to 15 different guys on Match.com, until my husband-to-be winked at me. A week later, I was letting all the others go, since we met and fell in love and I wasn't interested in writing to anyone else, ever! Perhaps this guy has already found someone...it happens. Don't give up, and have fun!

More than likely he is either married, or has lied to you about the majority of the things you too talked about. A friend of mine was in your situation and continued to press the issue of meeting the guy and when she did he was unemployed emailing her from the public library, no car, living with relatives. Not at all the successful Marketing Executive for walmart that grad from Troy state, that she thought he was. So I think you should move on. Try eharmony, usually sites that people have to pay money to join are better for meeting serious guys...
