But you don't want to be a fan boy

A good online dating message

But ideally you

The word pretty is a perfect case study for our point. So first impressions matter, as we're told. Totally dug the profile, you seem cool. First, try to include something in your first email to prove you read their profile. You might think that words like gorgeous, beautiful, and sexy are nice things to say to someone, but no one wants to hear them.

Tone down the Netspeak Netspeak is the main culprit when it comes to unsuccessful first mails. Gotta say, hiking Half Rim was such an escape for me. Mails that contain these words will get practically no replies proving that intelligence or maybe just good grammar is an attractive trait in both sexes. Your mother always told you so and you never really believed it too much, but the fact is that first impressions really count.

You could always spruce it up a bit and go with a foreign greeting, but make sure you know what it means otherwise you could come off looking like a bit of a Del boy. Women like to be pursued, they like being chased and romanced, fawned over etc.

But don't over do it here

It is also worth noting that most often discuss this from the point of view of a man contacting a woman, since that was my experience, but my hope is that the thoughts here are helpful to anyone. The email should be the bait to get someone to view your profile. Talking about specific things that interest you or that you might have in common with someone is a time-honored way to make a connection, and we have proof here that it works. Honestly, we've been using some of these for years and they're all pretty great. You have to keep your weird factor low.

But ideally you should just disbelieve the whole thing. But don't over do it here. This is an example of how sometimes profiles are too short and give you no clues to who the person is. But hehe, while still effective tends to sound a bit like a supervillain. Don't miss the helpful advice of our Tinder guide.

With this type of profile, I always felt like simply asking them out on safe date in the first email is fine. There are openers for a variety of different situations and types of girls. Give anything longer than three sentences a good, hard look before sending.
