Responding within a couple of hours of their interest will make you look desperate, even a bit creepy.
If you’re responding to another person’s interest, you have a couple of days to think about what you want to say and how to say it.
Listen to what I’m going to tell you now – the recipient CAN NOT know that you are sending them a form letter. I’ve seen some mass messages that men have sent thinking they’re carefully disguised, and it’s enough to make you weep. What I have instead is an equation, and it is perhaps my greatest Internet dating secret.
If I ever get sent to some awful prison in a Midnight Express-type situation, my introductory email is what I will recite in my head to keep myself sane.
Some men put their children on their knee and tell them about the time they scored the game-winning touchdown in the big homecoming game, I will tell my son about the time I created the perfect email that let me meet only fantastic women. Now I pass on the formula to you, guard it with your lives.
I preferred to create from scratch in each email, but my goal for the portion was the same… I never lie and my goal is always completely genuine: find a good girl.
In as funny a way as possible, tell them a little about yourself, accentuating your most date-able characteristics. If you do something heart warming and awe-inducing like teaching deaf kids, subtly drop that hammer. But I’ll warn you, these powers must be used for good and not evil.
They sent a plea with a silly headline like “Look at All You’re Missing Out On! Sure, ten totally ignored me, and the subsequent dates resulting from those five ladies were awful BUT…I got five dates. And suddenly my mission was born: create the formula for the perfect introductory email and send it to as many women as possible. I’ll say it again: Internet dating is a numbers game.
”, then a simple little picture of Shadoe987 and a few sentences about her and, well, it got me hook, line, and also sinker. ”, I said to my cat as I happily entered my credit card number. But I will always remember her fondly for the lesson she taught me: Internet dating is a numbers game. Look, if you wanna send every person you meet online a deliciously personal email that it took you twenty minutes to craft out of thin air – go for it. And they’re not small numbers, they’re really really big ones.
Because of this profile, you may have gotten some notices of “interest” — single people are actually interested in communicating with you.
This means you’ve got a potential date, and a potential relationship, just waiting to happen.
And the world will hate you and a horn will grow out of your head.
