On a serious note, I loved reading your profile and I look forward to hearing more about your volunteer work with the humane society! If so, I’m totally down to hang out with you haha Mexican cuisine is my absolute favorite! Would you like a list of my colognes now or after our first date?It might not sound very romantic, but you can’t argue with stats and figures and following a set of guidelines will probably help you feel more comfortable when sending your first message.Netspeak is the main culprit when it comes to unsuccessful first mails.Whereas as over confidence can often be a turn off in a first message.
I see you went to UPenn; I went to school at Temple University and loved Philadelphia!
Better to focus on interests, or even better, common interests. Talking about your own interests can give the recipient a good idea of what you are like.
It seems this is almost as important as talking about their interests so using any word that describes an interest or hobby is great, once your hobby isn’t too weird.
Our subconscious tells us that it’s rude not to answer a question so your chances are increased ten fold by just asking.
Unless you are actively seeking a partner of a specific faith, then it is probably a good idea to leave out any religious words in your first message.
