So if you’re interested in watching the entire season of “When Animals Attack”… You say correctly that humor is subjective and that people like funny and original.
If my photos pass the creep test check out my profile. Hi, my name is [Name], I wanted to start off by saying that you have a beautiful family.
I'd like to know your thoughts on [Interest in her profile .... I know how busy you must be, so I will keep this short, but I noticed we had some things in common, I've been [listening to the same music she likes, watched a TV show she likes, working out ... Family comes first, but I wanted to know what you enjoy doing if you'd have time to relax by yourself?
There were no lame clichés that men still think work. We kept the emails short, to the point, and they were original.
We were also aggressive in suggesting we get together soon.
Remember, that’s why she wrote it – because she wants you to get to know her, not because she wants to be told for the umpteenth time that she’s hot. NOT the thing you like the most, NOT the thing you find most attractive, NOT the thing you have in common. It might be how she doesn’t know how to program her Ti Vo. Yes, you think it’s cool that she also likes Robert De Niro movies and skiing in Vail. The sillier and more over-the-top your email, the funnier it’ll be.
Men who treat women as unique and interesting individuals stand a much greater shot of receiving a response. The most interesting tidbit in her profile is the thing that sounds like it couldn’t have been written by anybody else in the world. Whatever it is, take her quirky tidbit and turn it into your pickup line. The most effective way to catch someone’s attention in an initial email is with fiction. Because the truth, as we’ve established, is boring. But does any of that sound like a good pickup line to you? A good joke doesn’t require an explanation – it’s obviously a joke.
The last point we need to make on introductory emails is to ask a question, preferably at the end.
This gives her something to respond to and helps get the conversation going.
Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s not because I’m ashamed of what I’ve got.
