OK, that may be a slight exaggeration, but an immediate response makes you appear an easier catch in the man’s eye, subconsciously lowering your perceived value on the site.That may sound awful, but in reality men enjoy the chase. It can be frustrating to resort to tactics and game playing, but remember that you want to give the perception that you’re in demand, so take a bit of time to reply, especially at the start of a conversation.So here is my honest opinion about where women go wrong when it comes to online dating profiles.
As I learn all too regularly, there is a fine line between being funny and just plain scary.
And one (me, obvs) should avoid that line when it comes to dating. ) I like it because 1) It’s a clever play on a name for another internet dating service and 2) It’s a little joke about Judaism, which you know I appreciate.
In my view a username can only achieve one of two things.
It either produces no reaction whatsoever, or, worse, rings alarm bells.
I’ve rejected a lot of you, and have been rejected by a lot more of you!
I also like to think I’m a relatively emotionally intelligent chap.
Don’t reply immediately, but do reply relatively promptly, and start to make a connection.
After all, you never know where that connection may lead!
L here and ready to bring you the scoop from the internet dating websites. I may be one year older as of a few days ago, but I’m as immature and judgmental as ever.
Which is why I’d like to use our time today to judge fellow online daters on one thing: their usernames.
David Silver/Say Anything- Nothing makes me weak in the knees like a casual reference to late 80s/early 90s pop culture. I usually get so excited I’ll message something CRAY like, “Meet me at the Max in 1 hour? ” or, “Diane Court here.” Bagel Meet Bagel- Surprise, surprise. A visit or message from Mark3456 or jbt78 or Cardinalsfan may not catch my eye as quickly as I_shot_the_Sheriff_forreal. Because honestly, what people say in their messages, and their profiles, is way more important than their username. We’ve already done a post or two on profiles and messages, but rest assured, readers!
