How important is it to write a good online dating first email?
The answer to that may seem obvious, but just in case it isn’t let me say: writing a great first message in online dating is critical to success or failure in your dating life.
You can learn more details on my thoughts on this service in my article on How e Harmony Works.
No matter what service you choose, I hope my advice here will help you with your first messages.
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.
Online dating gives you a bit of an advantage in that you can strategically plan that first message so it hits home with a bit of a punch.
