If you make the first move and you don’t hear from him, it's often because he's busy shopping in the internet candy store.
A first email should be short, funny, original, and creative.
The message should include a “test” to make her feel as if she absolutely must reply. I enjoy sports, playing poker, and watching movies.
Without the initial contact, how could he know you might be interested in him?
Why do I believe a woman can and should send the first email while still allowing a man to be the man and pursue her?
The guys have to read through 50 long-winded profiles of women whose profile photos they are attracted to.
Ask any man if he would be flattered if an attractive woman wrote to him first, and he will tell you he would be thrilled.
I learned that she had made a golfing connection with the Doodle-Man and they had been dating for two months.
My girlfriend dumped him (because of his constant self-absorbed conversations) and a week later he emailed me, showing an interest in me.
The male ego likes to know a woman can be attracted to him.
The male ego also does not want to be rejected by sending hundreds of outbound emails to women each week. Men also secretly wish a woman would write a real email to them instead of sending a wink or flirt, which they view as passive aggressive. Whether you are a match or not, you are taking control over your dating life and may have the opportunity to meet the man of your dreams.
Get rid of “texting language" (mobile abbreviations and slang), capitalize all proper nouns and check your email for typos and misspellings. If it sounds like a normal face-to-face conversation, you will come across as genuine and sincere.
