So if you’re interested in watching the entire season of “When Animals Attack”… You say correctly that humor is subjective and that people like funny and original.
But I’ve come to believe that men, specifically, say they want funny and original. But I wonder if there’s anything more to it than my own personal experience.
Also keep in mind that bad grammar, spelling mistakes and poor language are huge turnoffs.
So how do we go about the process of writing emails that will attract our clients the best possible dates?
Our methods combine nearly a decade of online dating experience, with a thorough understanding of how men and women think online.
The thing is, even if she’s interesting, she most likely wrote a whole bunch of clichés in her profile: “I’m nice, smart, kind, warm, funny, honest and family-oriented. I’m looking for my best friend, lover and partner in crime for a lifetime of love and laughter.” (Scary how easy it is to approximate the typical online dating profile, isn’t it? Even a specific response like “I noticed you enjoy biking. For example, if you’re writing to the foot model, you might say: Let’s drink to our fashion careers, Evan Sure, it’s a little goofy, but people actually respond to this stuff. Because it’s different, it’s audacious and, in a strange way, it’s kind of smart. It’s not an idle compliment or a generic, “Ooh, look what we have in common” line. Start your comment in the subject heading of the email, like this… Talk to you soon, Evan If these kinds of emails don’t work for you, no problem. Just keep in mind that the confidence it takes to write an email like that is compelling.
It’s a joke and, as we all know, people like people who make them laugh. I can fix your computer, landscape your backyard and probably even hotwire your car, but, for some reason, Ti Vo programming seems to elude me as well. Playing it safe is fine, but if an attractive person has dozens, if not hundreds, of options, you need to shake things up a little bit to break through the clutter. Interesting piece, which I’ll have to parse at length when I have the time…but it leads me to throw out a theory I’ve been kicking around.
Remember, that’s why she wrote it – because she wants you to get to know her, not because she wants to be told for the umpteenth time that she’s hot. NOT the thing you like the most, NOT the thing you find most attractive, NOT the thing you have in common. It might be how she doesn’t know how to program her Ti Vo. Yes, you think it’s cool that she also likes Robert De Niro movies and skiing in Vail. The sillier and more over-the-top your email, the funnier it’ll be.
Men who treat women as unique and interesting individuals stand a much greater shot of receiving a response. The most interesting tidbit in her profile is the thing that sounds like it couldn’t have been written by anybody else in the world. Whatever it is, take her quirky tidbit and turn it into your pickup line. The most effective way to catch someone’s attention in an initial email is with fiction. Because the truth, as we’ve established, is boring. But does any of that sound like a good pickup line to you? A good joke doesn’t require an explanation – it’s obviously a joke.
Take your time until you see something you really like about her and mention it.
By the way, complimenting a woman on her personality is not being done often, so you’ll definitely stand out.
I invented that move and had to steal that dog from a little girl at the park for that photo op. In fact, not only have we formed many amazing relationships and drastically improved dating lives, but no client has ever requested a refund on our service.
Your first message to her should contain a comment on something you have in common or something you find exciting about her.
Let’s now take a look how we could transform the online dating email example above, into an email that will actually stand out from the crowd and attract someone online. 😉….well, then again, you do share my passion for The Walking Dead graphic novels. Imagine if every word of your online dating emails were given the same care and had the same expertise as the example above?
