Internet dating how to write a message
A one-sentence message probably isn’t saying enough, but you also don’t want to send a novel.
Responding to a few items in a person’s profile will take somewhere between three and eight sentences; if you find yourself writing a six-paragraph missive, work that delete key.
Sorry pal, but she’s not gonna be into you, no matter how hard her floppy hair makes you.
Do you live in Tennessee and are up for some long-distance chatting but she’s in New York and wants someone local?
If we wanted to read your profile, we'd have gone to it.
An online dating message is not the same (thank GOD) as a job application.
So you’ve caught on that “hey wuzz up” is generally understood to be an unoriginal message. However, copying and pasting some bizarre, rambling message isn’t going to trick someone into thinking you wrote all of that for them.
Again, you'd think these things would go without saying.
Online dating: It is not that hard, and yet so many people make it so hard.
Talking about yourself, at this point, should be limited, and related to the person you're interested in.**Bonus advice: Never, for the love of god, describe yourself (whether in your profile, or in messages) as a "kick-ass" ANYTHING. A few years back, the OKCupid blog posted a really helpful index of what kinds of messages get responses — and which ones don't.
Let me tell you, nobody on that site is reading it. There's lots of good stuff here — write using real words and real sentences; don't compliment their looks up front; bring up specific interests.
