We have PMS, men screw us over all the time, and the only thing other guys want is to get in our pants. If the message they send you has nothing to do with your profile, chances are he copied and pasted it. Moving on to something different can be a turn-off. I’ve learned that, with online dating, it’s usually the woman’s fault that the guys we aren’t interested in are the only ones contacting us.
Right”, but at times, it seems there’s no such thing. It just takes a little work searching the right places. But I’ve learned from my mistakes and now my focus in contacting men is based on the following: For most, we want to find our soul mate. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, will turn a guy off faster than a whiny girl. Some of them are guys I was actually interested in. Send him a “hi, I was thinking of you today..” email. When he contacts you, the attention should be focused on the topic of the email.
I have turned-off men that genuinely seemed to be interested in me. You don’t even know this guy, why would you start talking about future plans? And while this may come as a surprise, men actually do not tend to date women they sleep with soon after meeting. Yeah, well, it took me many years to learn this valuable lesson. I’ve received hundreds of emails from men with no profile pics. You wouldn’t believe some of the emails I’ve received from men. Since men think they’re God’s gift to women, they think we should send them a 20 page synopsis on how awesome they are. It either shows he’s not interested or doesn’t have the time for you. Maybe there’s a guy you spoke to a while back and the two of you just never found time for each other, but you still think he’s a cool guy.
Not everything I’ve done has received a positive response. They want to find a girl that they click with and can have a good time with. Once you start making sexy talk with a man, his only thoughts will be what he needs to do to get you in bed. If he doesn’t want to send me a pic, I’m certain he’s either just trolling me or he’s far too hideous for me to even consider. If you send a guy an email and he doesn’t respond – move on.
