So these are the types of 1st emails I've been sending out on online dating sites with absolutely no responses:
Hey hows it going? I like your profile so I thought I'd say hi! I like your first date idea too! So I noticed that you're into movies like me! what's your favorite one? Mine would have to be bridesmaids. I love me some comedy! What genre(s) are you into? Well feel free to check out my profile and let me know if you'd like to chat a bit more.
Would you respond to this email? Also could you maybe tell me (in your opinion) why do you think this is a horrible 1st email and maybe what I should do differently to get responses please? Thank you in advance for any feedback!

Subject line: If this subjec line catches your attention...
Body: Now that I have your attention on my email (cheap trick, I know), how do you feel about socks? chewing gum? Alright it's lame...but what's a guy gotta say to be unique and catch your attention? What brings you to the dating site? Looking for a dream guy? A fun fling? Forever man?
-Catch her attention first, however that may be, in the subject line...
-Be quirky/ good humored
-Inquire about her in general to initiate convo.
-Hope for a spark.
It really boils down to personality compatibility. (;
My boyfriend had it much easier. I happened to click on his message...it was pretty simple. After that, I read his profile where he'd mentioned movies he liked. I responded, including a line from a movie he' mentioned and we hit it off pretty immediately and still do. We went out on a date that week and 3 dates quickly after until we agreed that we both thought we'd do well in a relationship because it fit so well already.
You just keep messaging.
Most guys told me they barely got responses. My boyfriend said something early on about he was shocked I'd responded.
Girls in general tend to be flooded. 100+ messages a day can be overwhelming and even disconcerting...knowing how many potentially good messages you're missing. Finding tha much time and attention is impossible, so you eventually start looking for subject lines that stand out and hoping you don't skip the wrong one over lack of interesting subject line.
Good luck! Hope you find someone! ^__^0
