Dating site email etiquette
Share enough to excite and intrigue your potential match, while leaving them wanting more.
Follow this rule of thumb: keep profile answers concise and fun.
It’s also a good idea of avoid projecting into the future and saying things like “We could do this together …”, and when it comes to the sign-off, ‘Yours sincerely’ is obviously out of place, but ‘Love and kisses’ can seem a bit premature.
‘All the best’, or maybe something like ‘Cheers’ is probably closest to the right sort of tone.
Once someone has your name, it’s easy to track your location.
Fortunately, a number of Christian dating services, like e Harmony and Christian Cafe take care of this potential problem by providing “inhouse” email and messaging systems for members to use. And remember the goal is to attract a potential soulmate, not repel them. Email Etiquette Tip #3: Have Something to Say Whether you are meeting face to face or through email, having good conversation starter skills will help you connect with the other person, while helping you ascertain whether they are a match for you as well.
When replying to a match via email, use two-to-three-sentence responses.
If in doubt, it helps to draft an email, walk away and return an hour later to review it, edit it and, when satisfied, hit send.
If you’re match isn’t interested, they either won’t respond or will send you a polite ‘Thanks, but no thanks.’ You can’t take it too personally – she or he hasn’t met you in the flesh! The key is to be open and friendly while still maintaining a bit of mystery.I also remember sending notes to women I found interesting and getting absolutely no reply at all. I may not even notice that whomever she was didn’t reply. These women find something potentially valuable about me, and many of them clearly work as hard on their approach messages as I do on mine, trying to appeal to something in my profile that struck them, working to connect the dots and sell me on the idea that they’re really worth my while.Accept that dating online will involve some chasing.If you find someone who catches your eye, send an icebreaker or a friendly email.
