Text messaging online dating
I’m a night person, also, believe me — but I learned my lesson about being a night-person-who’s-online-dating, so message in the day or early evening if you're looking for more than a booty call. Recently, I helped a guy friend set up his online dating profile and when he started to get matches, I learned he didn't write to any of them (until I stepped in). I suggested the same things to him that I did above, and now he has three coffee dates planned.
Trust me, you’ll see how people's messages and responses change. Though it may take practice, online dating — and messaging potential dates — gets easier the more you do it.
Of all the responses we had, over 40% said that bad spelling and grammar were a real turn off.
One user even said that badly spelled emails would get an ‘instant delete’ from them.
As an avid dater, online and off, and as someone who used to work for Dating Coach Evan Marc Katz, helping clients write their profiles, I saw many common online dating mistakes.
For instance, I just looked at another random guy’s Ok Cupid profile.We asked our e Harmony Advice regulars to tell us what annoyed them about messages they received from their matches and , as expected, they had some strong opinions about what makes a good message – and what makes a very bad one!
