Writing messages on dating sites
And avoid texting shortcuts like the letter u for the pronoun, and the letters u-r; they don’t fare well in first messages, with the exception of “haha” and “LOL.” Include a few specific interests of yours; messages that do almost always get more responses than those that don’t.And work in a positive reference to one of their passions; showing you read their profile can score you major points.The words (if you can call them that) are the top nine worst words to use in an opening message.Mails that contain these words will get practically no replies proving that intelligence (or maybe just good grammar) is an attractive trait in both sexes.So, do you have any advice for how to get my message to stand out? Most dating sites have a flirty option which allows you to express your interest without having to actually message a person.(On How About We, this is the “I’m Intrigued” button, on OKCupid it’s a wink.) In general, this is not a good way for a guy to approach a girl on an online dating site.
This isn’t a cover letter for a job application; there’s really no need to be formal.It might not sound very romantic, but you can’t argue with stats and figures and following a set of guidelines will probably help you feel more comfortable when sending your first message.
