He’s written over 200 online dating emails to women with few responses. If you’re wondering why women are not writing you back, check out these tips.
I am on multiple dating sites and have sent out more than 200 messages to the various matches and search results with very few responses.
I do take time to write my first message based on her profile. I know I am not the life of the party type of guy but have never written anything crass or presumptuous. I am tall, slender, maybe even athletic, and have a full body picture on my profile. None of my pictures are home mirror photos and none look like selfies. And yes, all are fully respectable.
What might I be doing so wrong?
I do consider the possibility of making the error of living in Panama City, Florida. Moving just to find dates is a bit extreme, although that is now a serious consideration.
