Successful Online Dating #3 – Write Great Emails

And today’s tip number three!

3. Write Great Emails

OK, you’ve joined a dating site, you’ve searched for other members who fall within your specified categories, and you’ve been presented with a page of matching profiles.

You’re eager to fire off a few emails…but what on earth do you say in them?

Re-read my tips from earlier in the week about creating a great profile and apply the same rules to the first email that you send to another member. If it looks like you can’t be bothered to say much or that you’re sending the same one line message to several people, then they probably won’t bother to reply. Personalise each method. Tell that person a little about who you are and why you think you might both be compatible – respond directly to what you’ve read in that person’s profile – sound interested and interesting and you’ll get an email by return – sound boring and downbeat and you’ll just be ignored.

Of course, not all dating platforms (Tinder, I’m looking at you!) allow for this kind of interaction at first, but at some point you’ll have to get chatting!
