I’m going to roll up the sleeves and crack the knuckles here. I think this is generally an area where I excel. Sure, I’m on a dating hiatus, but before that I wasgoed on a holy fucking terror of binge dating the likes of which were mildly, if on not entirely unimpressive… Whatever. Fuck off, will ya!
So very first impressions matter, spil wij’re told. That’s excellent, but hows does that help you?
The Point. Get to it. Quickly.
Wij live ter a world where wij consume tons of information and make decisions te the blink of an eye. So it goes with online dating. Say “hello” and get hier attention. Familiarity helps. Telling something funny and non-threatening is good, too.
Example 1: Hey there! Liked what I read here and spotted you like Spel of Thrones. Crimson Wedding… W.T.F. If you toevluchthaven’t seen it, spoiler voorzichtig, everyone dies!
Example Two: I read through your profile and I gotta say, only my Freshman English Teacher made more use of the Oxford Comma than you. Oh my name is Alex! Grammar petimetre at your service!
It’s Okay to Bring the Cheese.
Women like to be pursued, they like being chased and romanced, fawned overheen etc. Duh. Your mileage may vary with the cheesy treatment, but if done well, you’ll display a sense of humor and a tender heart. A lethal combo if everzwijn there wasgoed one… But it’s also effortless to edge overheen into creepy/needy boy. Don’t be that fucker!
Example 1: Look, you owe mij 99 cents because your profile melted my heart like a snickers buffet ter a pocket on a hot summer’s day.
Example Two: Inbetween your profile and your photos, I have to say, you might be the prettiest woman te this part of the internet…
Or just tell a joke…
Example Three: How did the hipster burn his tongue? He gedistilleerd his coffee before it wasgoed cool…
Appeal to Hier Interests
Okay, you’ll see a large number of women who like the same shit spil you. Good! Right? Right! But you don’t want to be a fan boy. You don’t want to be a puppy dog following its master around all day. It’s fine if you find a woman who likes the same weird shit you do. But don’t overheen do it here. Elementary acknowledgments go a long way, playa.
Example 1: Hey there. I’m Alex. Totally dug the profile, you seem cool. Gotta say, hiking Half Rim wasgoed such an escape for mij. How did your hike go? Let’s talk sometime.
Example Two: Hi! I noticed that wij share a love of the ‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants!’ (not truly). =) – But earnestly, wij seem like a lotsbestemming of the same movies/beers/things/shit etc.
Be natural and poke joy, but don’t be creepy or needy but also be concise and to the point.. Most importantly have Joy! If you come off that you’re having joy, you’ll seem like joy. Actual joy.
