Here’s a new article which I wrote as a special to Yahoo! And while I never write emails for others, the request makes perfect sense. ———————————————————— Of all the things that clients (especially men) ask me to help them with, the most common query involves assistance with writing introductory emails.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.

When I wrote someone once but they didn’t write me back, I usually sent a 2nd email to let them know that I was still interested.
2nd paragraph: I usually started it off by saying; “I agree…, I enjoyed…, I understand what you meant by…” and then followed it up with something from their profile that I agreed with or enjoyed reading about.
My purpose is to try and relate to them, show honest interest, and show them that I am paying attention but not afraid to express my opinion too.
I usually added something specific I read in their profile and comment positively on it.
I wanted to show that I did read their profile and I wanted to compliment them on something personal about them.
