That nice…“John” was the brand name of a diary that she picked up at Staples instead of a live human being.
I have known Sally for almost 10 years and she does not fit into one of those categories.
Sally is relatively new to online dating and doesn’t realize that there is an unwritten code of conduct when it comes to writing emails.
I told Sally that she should have gone back to those Q&A “guided communication” section and pulled a couple of good questions from his answers.
She could have asked him to expand upon his love for dining and cooking.
In a nutshell, before you are given the option to freely communicate with your matches on e Harmony, you must first go through something called “guided communication” wherein you have to choose 4 questions to send to your match.
e Harmony already gives you the questions (or you can ask your own) and all your match has to do is respond to those questions either in their own words or pre-answers that e Harmony lists.
I pointed this out to her and she told me that she really couldn’t think of anything interesting to say…. I told her that it was inexcusable that she could not think of anything interesting to say to him.
Had she been a member of one of the “lower end” online dating services, wherein all you have to go off of is a cheesy picture and a couple of paragraphs of “about me” then I could plausibly understand…not with e Harmony.
Let’s now take a look how we could transform the online dating email example above, into an email that will actually stand out from the crowd and attract someone online. 😉….well, then again, you do share my passion for The Walking Dead graphic novels. Imagine if every word of your online dating emails were given the same care and had the same expertise as the example above?
