I spent too much time blindly follow good-intentioned advice and not thinking for myself early on when dating online.So better to listen to your gut and break any “rules” (such as keeping the email short) when you think it would work to your favor.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.
According to Ok Cupid, “Saying ‘Hey’ in a first message is almost equivalent to saying nothing — this greeting has an 84% chance of being completely ignored.” That first exchange sets the tone for the rest of the relationship, so you should go beyond one-word openers and say something to give your date a laugh.
This advice may still be helpful for sites such as e Harmony or Chemistry.com, however these services guide the communication and there is less “emailing” early on.
Writing the online dating first email is the area where I made the biggest mistakes for the longest period of time when I was dating online.
Online dating can be unforgiving and for many of us it is easy to make mistakes without even realizing it.
I hope the steps included here are helpful for you in avoiding problems in this area!
