They sent a plea with a silly headline like “Look at All You’re Missing Out On! Sure, ten totally ignored me, and the subsequent dates resulting from those five ladies were awful BUT…I got five dates. And suddenly my mission was born: create the formula for the perfect introductory email and send it to as many women as possible. I’ll say it again: Internet dating is a numbers game.”, then a simple little picture of Shadoe987 and a few sentences about her and, well, it got me hook, line, and also sinker. ”, I said to my cat as I happily entered my credit card number. But I will always remember her fondly for the lesson she taught me: Internet dating is a numbers game. Look, if you wanna send every person you meet online a deliciously personal email that it took you twenty minutes to craft out of thin air – go for it. And they’re not small numbers, they’re really really big ones.
I read your emails, and I get it: you don’t give a shit. When someone starts off saying they’re emailing me again, it’s like I feel bad for ignoring them and thus I pay more attention to them.
So what if hot chicks get deluged with awfully mean and awfully written emails – they’re hot chicks. I was a little surprised at your ruthlessness, but hey, I’m a hot chick. (I’m working on a catchphrase here.) This week’s lesson from Olivia is far more practical. When you get a lot of emails, it’s very easy for most of them to just get lost and drowned out, even ones that I liked. I TOULD YOU about the power of the second email months ago, and I’m happy to see Olivia agrees.
When I joined a few years ago, it was for one girl: Shadoe987. So lovely, so innocent, so eccentric in her spelling choices.
I had taken a half-hearted swing at Match a few years previous, so they had me on their “bother to the point of certain insanity” email list.
The internet is still abuzz from INAM’s shocking expose, Match From a Hot Girl’s Perspective. Here’s Olivia’s suggestion: I honestly don’t mind when someone emails me twice.
In fact, just today it was reposted on the Huffington Post! In fact, I probably respond to more second emails than first emails.
There was just something about Shadoe987, she was so…attractive, so wholesome, so forgiving. Who knows where she is now…maybe living in Paris with her playful yet reliable husband who’s taught her more about wine than she ever imagined. Because after I didn’t hear back from Shadoe987, I emailed fifteen or so other women with a far less carefully crafted message and you know what? It is more likely that the person you’re writing WILL NOT write you back, no matter how charming and eloquent you are.
The kind of girl who would absolutely not judge you for being duped by yet another promotional email from a company you had no interest in. Believe me, Shadoe987 got every bit of my charm and eloquence and she didn’t even thank me before she was killed under that tractor.
In this article I am going to teach you how to write online dating emails the same way a marketing guru would, and follow up the presentation with an example of a perfectly written email.
