Message for online dating
One contributor was able to double his response rate (from 5% to 10%) by writing bespoke messages.Potentially double your response rate by being personal.
For example, after you’ve gotten the green light to meet up, be with a message like, “I'm free Friday, or if early next week is more convenient Tuesday works too.” You want a firm commitment to a specific time (for dealing with flakes) but to let her know she’s the ultimate decider.
And remember: you’re not just trying to time to meet up. Are they genuinely into you, or just responding to the attention? It’s also important not to misrepresent yourself for if (and when) you meet up with someone.
Getting past the pleasantries and straight into a real exchange is the best way to figure out if they’re interested and you should be interested. As Jack Donaghy once told Liz Lemon: Be open, confident, and positive.
What money can’t buy: the tool kit to write solid messages, get quality conversations going, and get dates. This is the most challenging aspect of the entire messaging game. You simply don’t have the time to start the conversation at “hello.” You need to dive right into the second act so you can decide whether to ask them out before they disappear.
The second act is getting to the kind of fun, playful exchange that allows you to share some kind of emotional connection with the other person.
