Most dating website recommend a first step in communication — the introductory e-mail.Whether you’re responding to someone else’s email or initiating one yourself, you have a chance to hit the ball out of the park and make a perfect first impression, or totally kill any interest in you this person may have had.One thing is for sure — as the cliche says, you only have one chance to make a first impression, so the pressure’s on.
The first thing you should know about introductions in dating websites is that its a good idea to take a little time to respond to an interested person.
Just like flirting in person, you don’t want to go overboard and “attack” a total stranger with your bone crushingly perfect email introduction.
Responding within a couple of hours of their interest will make you look desperate, even a bit creepy.
If you’re responding to another person’s interest, you have a couple of days to think about what you want to say and how to say it.
So you’ve decided to spend some time (and maybe a tiny bit of money) on an online dating website.
You took the time to write a great online dating profile of yourself, including your interests, what kind of person you’re looking for, a nice photo of you, etc.Because of this profile, you may have gotten some notices of “interest” — single people are actually interested in communicating with you.This means you’ve got a potential date, and a potential relationship, just waiting to happen.If, on the other hand, you’re writing to someone whose profile you’ve seen and makes YOU interested, rejoice — you have even more time to work on your email.Of course, balance is the key — don’t wait too long, especially before writing to a new interest.Remember that other members of the same website can see the profile that interested you, and someone will likely earn that person’s interest first.
