It seems there are plenty of men looking on these sites but hardly any saying hello! In my bio, I basically state I am a “retired jetsetter who still wants to have fun, but do it on a local level.” I’ve read a bunch of profiles and tried to reach out to men who were my equals, both in lifestyle and dating goals, but these guys haven’t responded.
” How am I supposed to take these emails that I’m getting? Thru events from LA Weekly, thu email lists like Thrillist, thru random happenstance at the gym, at Ralphs, on Sunset Blvd, at the UCB Theater, thru Meetup.com, thru friends’ house parties, thru work friends, and business networking, thru set ups, thru matchmakers, thru singles organizations, church or temple. But because “real life” doesn’t always provide enough opportunity on a week by week basis.
If you want a better online dating experience, you have to learn three things: how to write a better profile, how to flirt with men and keep them interested, and how to initiate contact with the men YOU want in a funny, confident way. My way far more effective than anything you’ve done before and it beats the hell out of more trial and error and frustration.
Literally, just went through all the Finding the One Online material and found a boyfriend in 1 month.
I live in a Northeast US city where the ratio of men to women is around 1:6.
When I decided to try online dating (at the urging of some friends and Evan’s blog), I went in with the mindset that I was looking for quality not quantity.
Do not assume there is something wrong with you or your profile.But one thing I know from 7 years of doing this job is this: a great profile and witty email doesn’t necessarily equal a great guy.And generic profiles and emails often mask amazing personalities.If you’re 29 and cute, they’re going to be coming out of the woodwork – 55 year old men from 100 miles away, telling you that you’re beautiful. Men copy and paste emails because such a low percentage of women write back to them.It’s a bad strategy on their part, but you have to understand that they’re FAILURES and be a little more sympathetic to them.Below is a list of reasons I know occur simply from talking to the girls I dated or from talking to friends.
