A CNN piece just came out talking about how to write your first internet dating message to get the highest chance of a response.

The two writers are women (one works for MTV the other at Psychology Today), so you’ll have to keep that in mind when reading.

They’re obviously giving you a womans perspective which might be a little bit different from the advice you’ve been gettin’ from yours truly and the rest of those people teaching you how to have more success with women.

And of course I do disagree with their comment “If there were a magic formula, some genius would have cracked it by now.”

Guess they haven’t heard of Insider Internet Dating yet. 🙂

Take a look at the article here:

Here are the points of note I got out of the article:

  • Let a woman know you’ve read her profile, using words like ‘notice that’, ‘good taste’, ‘you mention’ according to them, yield a high response rate.
  • It helps if you mirror her writing style since we like people who are like us.
  • Complimenting a woman n her physical looks makes a guy come off creepy.
  • Keep your emails short and to the point. They suggest 3-4 sentences.
  • Include something in your email that makes it easy for a woman to respond back.
  • Dont take it personal if you don’t hear back, there could be a variety of reasons.

Critical is fine, but if you're rude, we'll delete your stuff. Please use your PERSONAL name or initials and not your business name and do not put your website in the comment text, as both come off like spam. Ask good questions, have fun and thanks for adding to the conversation!

  1. They do make a few good points, but you’re right. It’s the classic “never listen to what women say” scenario for attraction. What they tell you they want, and what they grab hold of in reality can be two very different things.

    btw, don’t underestimate target=”_blank” in your in-text links 🙂 Maybe it’s just me being lazy, but I hate having to flip back and forth between reference websites in the same window LOL

  2. Its all a numbers game. I will only pay special attention on an email to a women if she gives me some initial feedback. Because a cute girl has at least 50 guys emails her every day and may not even get a chance to read your email.

  3. this is why its important your message stand out…. if you’ve done a recon profile like i teach, you’ll see the messages women are getting (important so you know what NOT to send).
