What Not To Talk About With A Prospective Online Date

Dating online is immensely popular. Why? Because it’s really easy. You simply browse until you find someone, then shoot them an email.  Therein lies the problem though… since it’s easy, guys tend to make the mistake of writing the same old boring claptrap to women time and time again.

Understand – women get TONS of email from guys on these dating sites, especially if they are attractive! If you want to separate yourself from the crowd of losers vying for her attention, you have to make sure you say something different and unique.

Here are 6 things you should avoid saying at all cost to a woman, because they will make you looke like every other lame schmoe out there trying to get a date.

1. NEVER SAY: “I just came across your profile”

This line has been used over and over and over again, and its boring. It will do nothing to engage the girl you’re writing to or make you stand out from the other losers who are emailing her.

Remember – EVERY guy tends to say stuff like this.

And the worst thing is – you are stating the obvious! Of course you came across her profile, otherwise you wouldn’t be emailing her, would you?

2. NEVER SAY: “I figure that I probably won’t hear from you, but…”

This is a sure-fire way to never hear back from a girl, because you come off as insecure and lacking confidence.

Understand that confidence is the number one thing that attracts women, Therefore, by saying this, you’re doing THE EXACT OPPOSITE of the thing which attracts women.

Instead, turn it around. Say something like “I can’t wait to hear back from you – but I’m super busy, so please be patient if I don’t get back to you right away.”

3. NEVER SAY: “I’m not what you’re looking for, but…”

Let’s be clear – self sabotage is never good! You may think you’re being endearing by stating you’re not what she’s looking for, but in her mind she’s thinking “Uh genius, then why are you even writing me?”

If you’re going to write a women who’s looking for something you’re not, go in with confidence.

You can’t email a woman thinking you’re not going to get a response. That’s a waste of your time AND hers!

Always take the position that you’re EXACTLY what she’s looking for, even if you don’t meet the specifics she states in her profile.

4. NEVER SAY: “If you decide not to write me back, can you please take a minute and tell me why?”

Again, saying this is communicating you’re expecting her to REJECT you. And it really reeks of desperation.

Not only that, but you’re also asking her to bad-mouth you and point out what’s wrong with you TO YOUR FACE!

That is not healthy, and it doesn’t build confidence.

Most of the time, women don’t reply to online dating emails because they’re not paying to be a member of the site, and CAN’T respond even if they want to.

If you don’t hear back from a girl, don’t linger on it. There are plenty more women to contact who WILL respond back.

5. NEVER SAY: “Would you like to join our swingers group sometime?”

Okay, for real, if I even have to explain why this is so wrong…. forget it.

If you are in a swingers group and looking for a girl to take along, there are SPECIFIC websites to find girls who are into that. Saying anything overtly sexual or off-the-wall right off the bat is not a good way to start things off.

Focus on being funny, charming, and engaging. Not a creep. Women get too much of that already from being online.

NEVER SAY: “I wanted to see if there was more to you than just another pretty face.”

Can you say “cliche?” I know you can! This is probably one of the most used lines by guys trolling online dating sites. Seriously, guys think they’re being clever by issuing a “challenge” like this, but it’s just as bad as saying “Can I buy you a drink?” at a bar.

Its true, you should try and challenge every girl you contact to engage with you, but the best way to do that is to be funny and interesting, not cliche!  So you could say something like “Okay, did you hire someone to write your profile for you, because you seem to be too good to be true. You’re not really a creepy guy with acne who lives in his parent’s basement, are you?”

See how much better that is?  Remember: Online dating success is about standing out from the crowd. Before you send any more emails out, read through it and ask yourself what seems like every other guy would be writing? Then change it!
Do it and watch your success skyrocket.

Avoid Cyber Stalking – Netiquette for Rejecting Profiles

Dating services online can be a fun place to meet new people, but because of the anonymity involved with dating online, you run a certain risk that the person you are striking up a conversation with isn’t exactly who they say they are. Breaking off an online romance or even simply rejecting a profile emailed through an online dating service can be tricky if you don’t do it with some finesse.

Cyber stalking is defined as unwanted contact or threats via email or instant messaging. Cyber stalkers can be relentless, sending mean and inappropriate emails so many times in one day that you no longer look forward to checking your email. They can also send pornographic material or even viruses disguised as apologies (Which you are more likely to open.)

Take heart, there are hundreds of online dating sites, from free dating services online to monthly or yearly membership dating sites, so don’t give up, just learn the netiquette involved with saying “no” to a profile sent to you via adult dating online.

Online dating tips for saying “no thanks” include:

  • Do not send a reply. It is very bad manners not to open an email, but once you have and would not like to have further contact, just do not reply. In internet language this is a common form of showing no interest, and is considered appropriate.
  • If someone whom you have not replied to keeps sending you emails, use the sender block on your email, that’s what it’s for.
  • If you are in a chat room and realize that the person you are chatting with probably isn’t a good match, tell them so nicely and wish them well. Wait for a reply and kindly sign off.
  • Always be kind and polite, but say nothing that could be construed as an indication that you might change your mind. Cyber stalkers, like “flesh and blood” stalkers, often believe that the other party did something to lead them on, even if you didn’t, so leave no margin for error.

Always report this sort of abuse to the online dating service. A reputable company that provides adult dating online will censure or terminate someone who has reports of harassment.
