Golden rules of internet dating
Dating is complicated enough on its own; when you add in the confusion of online dating sites, it can be just plain intimidating. There is a technique to navigating the virtual playing field.
Not to mention effective: Each day, an average of 236 people who met on e get married. So, how do you go from logging on to finding your perfect match?
The shortest messages get the best response rate; the reply rate goes down as messages get longer.
This is likely because an initial message serves mostly to make your profile available to the other person.
So, assume that your interest hasn't had time to open your message.According to a recent report, over half of Brits lie about their appearance in their online dating profiles. Apart from if you’re in a relationship, which leads me too… My friend Susie once had a guy open with: ‘PHEW’ – and then continued to tell her that he had just survived a crash landing on an Easyjet flight from Amsterdam.Other things people lie about: their jobs, their pets, their salary… The object of your affection will find out eventually. I can’t tell you how many of my friends have gone on Tinder dates and discovered the guy they’ve wasted a week of their data flirting with has in fact got a long-term girlfriend. We’re still presuming this is a lie, and a bad one at that.Make a Move In your initial e-mail to a potential partner, it's crucial to indicate that you've read his profile and took an interest in it.According to Ok Trends, the top three phrases in initial e-mails with the highest response rate are "you mention," "good taste" and "noticed that." So, describe something that resonated with you from his profile, advises Spira, but avoid physical compliments because "they seem too clichéd." And keep it brief: Ok Trends found that the ideal first message length is only 200 characters, or one minute's worth of typing for the average writer.
