Plus, if rejection happens, it’s not as personal or awkward (usually).Here’s the deal with the messaging thing: a lot of people have their own theories on how it works, what works best, etc. Others try “negging.” Some send long messages about their background and their overall philosophy and what they’re currently doing with their lives.This will help spark an idea about where to take the message. I can totally get down waxing all philosophical like while watching Arrested Development and drinking mugs full of coffee. (I think it’s on Amazon Prime so who knows if I’ll ever see it).
I’ve been doing the whole online dating thing on and off for years now and, let me just say, I’ve had the entire range of good, bad, and ugly messages arrive in my inbox.
There was a time I even created a blog to showcase some of the best of the worst because I felt the world should share in the horror with me.
Grammar mistakes speak poorly of your professionalism and education.
If you have grammar mistakes in your first message, the person you are interested in may view you as less educated and less professional. Whether you are making a pun on words or mentioning something funny you saw in the person’s profile, showing that you have a sense of humor will make you look more attractive.
If you find an example with any of those mistakes, make sure you do not use it. People like other people who have a sense of humor.
