Question
Hello,
In on-line dating, one tricky part is what to talk about when you contact a member for the first time. As attractive girls receive loads of messages from guys, to get a better response and stand out , what should I talk about when I send a message to a girl for the first time?



Thanks a lot!

Answer
try to express creativity/uniqueness....be genuine,playful, but not silly; if she says something of interest in her profile that you notice or agree with, tell her; then just offer that you would be interesting in conversing/learning more; other approaches, like the following, make you stand out from the crowd. 1) "congratulations, (dating site name)is pleased to announce you are the winner of this year's "BEST (eyes/smile/lips, pick one)AWARD, Congratulations!....2) "one way to (city where she lives) please"....so, that's 3 different beginnings you can use...

Life experience can really be the only teacher in this area; however going through the experience is not enough. What is necessary is a real awareness, sensitivity to, and reflection upon what has happened, what has been lost, what has been gained. Getting beyond one's own insecurities and subjectivities, and seeing the experience in the context of the bigger picture, are essential stepping stones to learning and loving...ps..azure announces CT matchmaking service..for more, go to wishuponastar-ct.com
