I know this is not marketing school but, like a marketer, you are trying to reel someone in.
And just like an ad agency makes a call to action, you can too, by simply asking about an interest or even suggesting a dinner date.
Ideally, though, you’ll have some sort of common interests and once you’ve picked up on that then a conversation, or better still, a date could be just around the corner.
Our subconscious tells us that it’s rude not to answer a question so your chances are increased ten fold by just asking.
Unless you are actively seeking a partner of a specific faith, then it is probably a good idea to leave out any religious words in your first message.
Now that you’ve read the rules you should be able to craft a grammatically correct, unusual, and not overly confident first message that has a pretty good chance of getting a reply.
As we said earlier, it might not be the most romantic approach and a little analytical for some, but if it gets results then what’s to lose?
There are fewer outlets for dating advice for guys than there are for women.
That being said, I I just joined Ok Cupid on your recommendation, and I have to say you were very right about it being a buyer’s market for ladies.That’s not to say you should never mention your religion, but unless it is very important to you, then you can leave it till you meet in person.Religion is always a bit of a minefield in the dating game and you really need to be careful not to offend anyone or risk being offended yourself.Better to focus on interests, or even better, common interests. Talking about your own interests can give the recipient a good idea of what you are like.It seems this is almost as important as talking about their interests so using any word that describes an interest or hobby is great, once your hobby isn’t too weird.Strange how in the world of dating we have always been told that self confidence is extremely attractive, but the opposite holds true with regards to online dating.
