Olivia’s answer to my question can help any dude or lady who tries their hand at internet dating. I mean, two random digits are better than just tossing out a “Hey,” or an alarmingly creative “Heya,” right? ” fellow kinda intrigues me, like if you opened his email it would just go on listing a bunch more racket sports. And only Well gang, I hate to say I told you so, but — actually, no I don’t. If I haven’t responded to your second attempt, I’m clearly not interested.My question: What’s the one thing I can do in my Match email to make sure you’ll respond. First thing to consider is something you probably think little about: your subject line. So, don’t send a third, fourth, or fifth message to someone. A third attempt comes off as desperate and obsessed.
An online dating message is not the same (thank GOD) as a job application.
Do: Play the Game Like it or not, dating is a game.
In order to be successful, you’ve got to play to win. Your job is to recover quickly, get back out there, and always play to win.
When responding to your match via email, use two-to-three-sentence responses to any particular subject.
When in doubt, follow this simple exercise: After drafting your email, save it, and then walk away from the computer.
