Here’s the deal with the messaging thing, a lot of people have their own theories on how it works, what works best, etc. Others try pick-up-artist “negging.” Some send ridiculously long messages about their background and their overall philosophy and what they’re currently doing with their lives.
This will help spark an idea about where to take the message.
Bonus: you’ll find out if you truly want to message this person or if they’re just drawing you in with their physical appearance.
Three sentences are all you need to write in a first message.
I’ve been doing the whole online dating thing on and off for years now and let me just say, I’ve had the entire range of good, bad and ugly messages arrive in my inbox.
There was a time I even created a blog to showcase some of the best of the worst because I felt the world should share in the horror with me.
This past week alone I’ve gotten enough poorly executed messages to make me want to curl up in a ball of being-alone-forever.I try not to lose hope that there can be some genuine connections made through meeting someone off of the internet. I have even made several lasting friends from some of my experiences.When it comes to sending messages many people freak out.They want to say online dating sites give you profiles to work with.Thus making an introduction easier and far less intimidating.If rejection happens it’s not as personal or awkward (usually).
