we just wanted to help women stop making mistakes and get the men of their dreams—and that’s what we still do now, 20 years later!Today, Ellen is married with two children and lives in New York, and Sherrie is married with a teenage daughter and lives in New Jersey.You may not be interested, but you can’t just pretend that the person isn’t standing there talking to you. So we have developed all manner of ways of saying no thanks, in what is hopefully the kindest way possible. And a couple times, women I have written to actually have replied with nice no thank you messages. And – here’s the odd part – a little uncomfortable.
You want to make the best first impression you can for your potential match.
With the online message, you don’t get the benefit of a shy smile or showing off the product of all that time in the gym.
If you think you’ve found the girl for you, skip the winking or flirting and go right for the email.
Girls get hit up on online dating sites all of the time.
But when she writes back, when she makes eye contact, then the rejection becomes personal and I have to think about it.
I’ve been there before, searching online dating sites and coming across a profile of the future Mrs. The stress alone can freeze some people up worse that if they had to say hello in person.Because emailing a man is nothing more than starting a conversation, you may think, "Why not?"However, once you decide to email an interesting guy, you may find yourself thinking, "What do I say to him?Most times, she’ll ignore you unless you look semi-datable in your profile picture or your description reads like a romance novel.It’s also one of the reasons why I stress that you take the time in preparing your online dating profile. First messages in online dating are like first impressions, you only get one and a bad one will get you shut down fast.
