Dating over 40 rules
We all know when we’re getting a boilerplate email from a company that wants our business, and similarly, people can sniff out a little Control C/Control V action just as easily.From this, the folks at Zoosk concluded that while copying and pasting the same message to multiple women may seem like a good way to save time, it “Hey is for horses.” Ever hear that quip from a grandparent when they overheard you using this most casual of salutations?If you have a problem with spelling and grammar, that’s fine.But lucky for you, we live at a time in which there are plenty of tools that check errors and improve how we come across in our writing.You’ve seen a woman that’s pushing all your buttons, and then some.You message her because you’re eager to make a connection, and things are going great.
Dating app and site Zoosk did a little research on their users and happened upon an interesting truth: 87% of good-looking guys with compelling profiles were striking out with women because they were sending the same generic message to multiple people.
Those first poetic little messages will make or break your conversation, so it’s imperative you get it right and don’t make painfully simple mistakes.
Based on my conversations with a professional dating adviser and several female friends who are users of a dating app, it’s clear that a sloppy barrage of messages can undo all the work you put into your profile in almost no time.
So great, in fact, that she expresses an interest in meeting up with you.
The problem: You have an out-of-town wedding, then a business trip, then your parents are staying with you for a few days, and it’s going to be a couple weeks before you’re able to meet. You probably shouldn’t have messaged her in the first place.
