I spent too much time blindly follow good-intentioned advice and not thinking for myself early on when dating online.So better to listen to your gut and break any “rules” (such as keeping the email short) when you think it would work to your favor.
Online dating can be unforgiving and for many of us it is easy to make mistakes without even realizing it.
I hope the steps included here are helpful for you in avoiding problems in this area!
I would write overly long and, in my head, witty emails that very rarely received responses. My rule here is very simple: keep your first email very short.
Once, I wrote no less than two pages based on a girl’s heading to her profile. I thought I was making conversation but all I was making was a girl scared. Give anything longer than three sentences a good, hard look before sending.
For example, in the Profile 3, creating an invitation to have a drink that looked like a travel itinerary might work well if she had mentioned enjoying creativity or if her profile was very creative.
