Here’s an example: “I really liked your profile…up until I saw your political affiliation. ” Or this one, which started with a negative, “Only one thing poses a problem. Nevertheless, if quality rules in your mind, the possibilities are substantial.” This guy is sabotaging the relationship by pointing out an age difference that might not even matter to you. I hope this helps give you a little more clarity about decoding online dating correspondence.
These guys write a version of their profile essay in an email to you. I certainly didn’t get Brownie points for trying to do what I thought was the ‘right’ thing.
Confused in Pa, MJSAs a guy, I've been tempted to do this once or twice.
I'm not saying i was a betterperson than the girls, but their line of conversation gave me a sense that wewe're not going to click yet they'd drone on and on.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...
They can specify who they are looking for, by gender, age, location, income and interests.
Some sites allow for chats online, message boards and more specific searches or profile matching. Some sites broadly offer something for everyone; others are geared to specific interests.
But these guys have chosen to write their essay in the body of an email instead of where it belongs…in their ‘about me’ section. I immediately blocked him from being able to contact me, and I reported him for harassment to the dating site. If a guy says ‘contact me if you’re interested’, you should do just that.
Ah, the guy who writes a thoughtful email, highlighting some key points from your essay that resonated for him. Okay, in all fairness, this ‘Sam’ was exceptionally rude (and not a great writer).
