Strange how in the world of dating we have always been told that self confidence is extremely attractive, but the opposite holds true with regards to online dating.Putting yourself down or being a little shy or awkward can come across rather endearing.Surely, one of the things any online dater would want to know is what type of first contact message is most likely to draw a positive response.Should it be humorous, should it be factual, or should you just introduce yourself?
And this couldn’t be more true when it comes to contacting someone online.
Online dating gives you a bit of an advantage in that you can strategically plan that first message so it hits home with a bit of a punch.
Unlike an everyday face to face meeting where the words just tumble from your mouth in no apparent order.
Our subconscious tells us that it’s rude not to answer a question so your chances are increased ten fold by just asking.
Unless you are actively seeking a partner of a specific faith, then it is probably a good idea to leave out any religious words in your first message.
