Improve your online dating success
For many people, communicating for the first time with someone they havenít
yet met can be stressful and confusing. Others may actually find online dating
easier than meeting people in the traditional way. Whichever side you fall in,
we hope that the following tips will help you find the right words, tone, and
pulse to send the appropriate message to your online match.
Starting the conversation
If you are the first to initiate a communication, keep your message relatively
short and simple, but always include an interesting fact about yourself to
draw curiosity (and trigger a reply).
Example: Hi there! So we are both Greek island lovers Ė which is your favorite
one? (Even if you havenít been to any islands recently, you can follow up with
subsequent messages about your favorite vacation spots.)
Emails, closed-ended or open-ended?
The closed-ended email gives a hint to the other person that you are not
interested and he/she should stop emailing you. You should end your
closed-ended email with something like: Itís nice that you like the Greek
isles. Take care.
The open-ended email should always end with a question. The open-ended email
indicates you are interested in further communicating with the other person.
Hereís an example: It sounds like you are quite a music lover Ė what types of
music do you like to listen to? What is the last concert you went to?
Good timing is key
Similar to any human interaction, timing is key - but the rules of online
communication are different. You do not need to wait five days to respond to
an email, but you do need to wait more than five minutes. It's a good idea to
vary your reply time, and be aware of how long he/she is taking to reply to
you. An interesting note: replying to online messages on a Saturday night may
not send a good message (and people, especially ladies do notice these
Typos and syntax
People have different standards for grammar and syntax in the online world. In
the beginning, try to pay attention to the grammar and syntax of your messages
(this way the other person knows you are proficient in writing a complete
sentence). Itís not a bad idea to do a spell-check or spend a couple of
minutes to proofread your message. After you have established a comfort level
with each other, you can be more casual with your writing style and use lower
case, slang words, and just establish a more laid back communication.
Very soon, you'll be flattering prospective matches with your engaging emails.
