Dating site emails that work
For example, an online retailer could connect hip trends to the older generation.
A subject line like, “Ten Trendy Styles Even Your Grandmother Thinks Are On Fleek,” could get a smile from your readers and encourage customers of all generations to open your email. Think of movies that relate to your business, or famous quotes that you could incorporate into your subject line.
Again, you'd think these things would go without saying.
In the world of dating apps/websites, there’s so much competition out there for cute girls, your opening line can make or break whether she will engage.
It's presumptuous to list a bunch of unrequested information about yourself in your message, because doing so assumes that this person already thinks of you as a candidate.
Instead, as with good tip #5, use the message to ask about him/her.
Get noticed for who you are, not what you look like.
If we wanted to read your profile, we'd have gone to it.
An online dating message is not the same (thank GOD) as a job application.
Talking about yourself, at this point, should be limited, and related to the person you're interested in.**Bonus advice: Never, for the love of god, describe yourself (whether in your profile, or in messages) as a "kick-ass" ANYTHING. A few years back, the OKCupid blog posted a really helpful index of what kinds of messages get responses — and which ones don't.
Let me tell you, nobody on that site is reading it. There's lots of good stuff here — write using real words and real sentences; don't compliment their looks up front; bring up specific interests.
If you think your subject line is borderline offensive, don’t send it.
