First message on a dating website

As I discuss in my free online dating guide, successful online dating relies in part on making great first impressions.

Whether the first impression is in the photos you select for your profile, how you describe yourself, or the first email you write, taking time to make the best first impression is important.

There are several reasons I’m for short first emails.

With online dating, the first message can make or break your chances of a successful first date.

There’s not too much to work with here aside from asking travel questions which, by looking at her profile, probably already happens in every email she receives. I know this looks like nothing but I’ve had success with these types of emails (my wife being the best example…although her profile was actually good!

You can learn more details on my thoughts on this service in my article on How e Harmony Works.

No matter what service you choose, I hope my advice here will help you with your first messages.

I would write overly long and, in my head, witty emails that very rarely received responses. My rule here is very simple: keep your first email very short.

Once, I wrote no less than two pages based on a girl’s heading to her profile. I thought I was making conversation but all I was making was a girl scared. Give anything longer than three sentences a good, hard look before sending.
