Our Simple guide to being a Marvellous Messenger
Be your best self, never try to be someone you're not. Imagine you've just met this person face-to-face and simply started chatting. Use the same language and this will give your messages a natural, easy-going first impression. If you don't understand something they've said, don't worry about looking dim, ask them to explain! It will be a great conversation starter and make you look interest.
The more messages you send, the more replies you receive. It's the golden rule of online-dating. So, even if you think you've found 'The One', don't set your heart on one person. There's a whole site out there! And when you get replies, never play hard to get. If you leave your response too late, they'll think you're not interested, forget about you and move on, and no one wants that.
Psst! Ladies - there's no rule that men have to send the first message in online dating, so you've got no excuse - make the first move!
When we say send loads of messages, we don't mean the same message every time! Of course you can use the same phrases and lines in the early stages, but as time moves on it's the personal touch that will get you the replies!
Read their profile, pick out some facts about them and ask questions. This eye for detail will always make your messages stand out in their inbox.
So, let's talk.
