Emailing for Love

In the realm of online dating, it’s not just about finding the best site and then finding the perfect matches. While you might think that the first date is the first impression you will have with your potential partner, it’s actually the first time you communicate with them that can guide you to love or not. In most dating sites, you’ll get the chance to email your prospective date before you even meet them, but are you doing all that you can to impress?

Emailing can be a hard way to talk to someone. Without the ability to see someone else’s facial expressions or to understand the way they explain things, it can be hard to figure out what’s being said…and what’s not.

What you do want to do is be as friendly and positive as you can. This first email isn’t about the things that you don’t like; it’s about creating the possibility of a date or just a meeting. You want to talk about things that you noticed in their profile, perhaps give suggestions for things you might want to do together, etc.

This is your time to create a mental picture of yourself for the person on the other end of the email, so try to be fun and show your true personality. If you’re having troubles with writing this initial email, there are plenty of sites and tips out there. And don’t forget to read it back to yourself before you hit send!
