Examples of good online dating emails

I’m not going to change the general tone or point of the emails but I am trying to ensure he remains anonymous by changing some of the specifics.

Here is my reader’s first email to a girl who was originally from the same area as him Lonestar State What’s up?

I would also hesitate asking a woman where she’s originally from in a first email. You seem like the kind of energetic, open person I might get along with.

I get why he asks but some people are more sensitive about risks with online dating than others so I’d save it for a later email. I love staying busy, and I can usually have fun doing just about anything. Would you like to chat sometime…or since you like brunch so much, maybe meet in the city at somepoint?

He was disappointed with the number of responses he was receiving (although I think it’s important to keep in mind there are many reasons you may not get responses, not just how you write your email) As I talk about in my guide, I don’t believe anyone has the dating/realtionships thing fully figured out.

Some of us have more experience or better insight than others but at the end of the day we’re all just making our best guesses.

Here I started with his basic premise but also ended with that.

He provided me with three emails he wrote and I reworked them to be closer to what I would have written.

I believe I’m great at making almost anything fun…even a boring cup of coffee.

I’d love to have the opportunity to prove that to you.

The first thing that grabbed my attention about your profile was your username…I moved to Seattle from Texas a few months ago…I love it out here but I do miss home a lot. I really liked what I read about you and your interests.

While I do live in the ‘burbs, I am absolutely in love with Seattle.
