I cover my approach writing first emails with online dating in my post First Contact Email Examples.
He was disappointed with the number of responses he was receiving (although I think it’s important to keep in mind there are many reasons you may not get responses, not just how you write your email) As I talk about in my guide, I don’t believe anyone has the dating/realtionships thing fully figured out.
Some of us have more experience or better insight than others but at the end of the day we’re all just making our best guesses.
With that in mind, I’m not saying his emails are bad.
I just believe based on my own experience they can be improved upon because sometimes we make our first emails out to be more than they should be.
Also, I’ll be showing examples similar to the emails he sent.
Because I want to avoid revealing any reader’s identity, I’m changing the specifics of his emails.
I’m not going to change the general tone or point of the emails but I am trying to ensure he remains anonymous by changing some of the specifics.
Here is my reader’s first email to a girl who was originally from the same area as him Lonestar State What’s up?
The first thing that grabbed my attention about your profile was your username…I moved to Seattle from Texas a few months ago…I love it out here but I do miss home a lot. I really liked what I read about you and your interests.
While I do live in the ‘burbs, I am absolutely in love with Seattle.
I try and go to the city whenever I can…it just has a great atmosphere to be in.
