Interesting subject lines for dating sites
To elucidate her point, Olivia sent me a screengrab of her inbox. I have had some guys seriously send multiple messages with no responses.
I don’t know what they’re thinking, but clearly they can’t take a hint.
I asked her one question, and the response I received was pure gold. When you’ve got a bunch of emails to choose from, it’s pretty hard to select one that, in the one moment it has to advertise, offers only the word “(none)”. So, generally I’ll go back and find their original message, reread their new message, look at their profile, and decide whether to respond. I actually think it’s not a bad idea to send two emails to everyone you write, if you feel like spending that sort of time on Internet dating, and don’t mind veering dangerous close to serial killer zone.
You may think this applies only to men looking for women, or folks trying to attract someone a bit out of their league – but that isn’t so. Most captivating subject line in that assortment goes to…the guy who wrote “86”, I guess? I’ve just gone from spending 10-30 seconds on your email and probably not even looking at your profile to a few minutes thinking about you. But you gotta handle the second email just right (for suggestions, follow the link). A third email is a little too Bates Motel for Olivia’s tastes.
It’s advice that I believe applies to all of us, whether we’re searching for a cute older straight guy or an exotic younger lesbian lady. She’s happy to answer more questions, so if you have any quandaries of your own, send them my way, and I’ll see what we can do.
Oh, and before she finished, Olivia hand one more It’s Not a Match credo to reinforce: If you want to get my attention, your only bet is to send an email, because that’s the only reason I’m going to look at your profile.
Again, please keep their identity a secret Click on the "Continue" button search with your zip/postal code.I have never sent a third, fourth, or fifth email, but now I kinda want to, just to see what happens.As long as what happens isn’t the cops showing up at my house.I’ve never responded to someone based solely on looks, though it’s difficult to say exactly what will make me decide to respond or not.
It’s a combination of (in order of importance) content of their email, what they look like (whether or not they’re at least somewhat cute enough they could fall into that nondescript “becomes more attractive after getting to know his personality” category), and content of their profile.
(Can not add link because I totally made that up.) But as we suggested last week, we are not done with Olivia, our resident hot chick. When I go through my inbox, I do read every message.
