Dating is complicated enough on its own; when you add in the confusion of online dating sites, it can be just plain intimidating. There is a technique to navigating the virtual playing field.
Not to mention effective: Each day, an average of 236 people who met on e get married. So, how do you go from logging on to finding your perfect match?
The shortest messages get the best response rate; the reply rate goes down as messages get longer.
This is likely because an initial message serves mostly to make your profile available to the other person.
Your Profile Picture It can seem difficult to stand out in the vast sea of online daters; the best way to do so is by creating a great profile—and be sure to always include a photo.
If someone is new to a site, his or her profile is often featured in the community and the person becomes inundated with e-mails.
So, assume that your interest hasn't had time to open your message.
You need to show your interest right away; in the world of online dating you never know how many women one man has contacted, and how quickly the others may express their interest.
If you contact someone and haven't heard back in a week, it's OK to send a second e-mail.
