How to write dating email
Anyone who’s ever dated online has had that moment – the blinking cursor, the empty text box, the racing heart, and the brain so temporarily empty, it has tumbleweed running through it. Make yourself a soothing cup of tea, and we’ll talk about how to do it right.
This is basic, but sometimes daters forget that the first thing a match will do when they receive an interesting message is click on the profile of the person who sent it.
Don’t let yourself fall through the cracks and be just another forgotten conversation — follow up within a few days to see if you can get that person’s attention and nab a date.
If your follow-up email doesn’t get a response, it’s time to move on.
However, don’t wait too long (e.g, a week) because you’ll risk getting lost in the shuffle even more.
If you’re messaging a woman, that’s even more likely to happen because she could be getting 40 messages a day.
Anywho, just thought I’d follow up to see if you’d be interested in grabbing a coffee sometime. You want to keep your tone friendly and casual, not butt-hurt because you didn’t get a response on the first try.
That’s why it can sting if you don’t hear anything back.
If it’s just their dazzling smile or their sparkly blue eyes, that’s fine!
If their profile made you laugh out loud in the middle of Tesco, say it.
If you despaired of ever meeting a woman who loved football (even if you question her choice of team), say it.
The easiest way to start a conversation with anyone new is to ask a question, so include one.
