Don’t copy and paste
Copying and pasting messages doesn’t work
Read this blog to find out why.
Dating can sometimes be a little time consuming. You need to contact lots of people to make it work, so it’s often tempting to try and cut corners to save time. So some people will send out the same opening message to everyone, without tailoring it to fit the person they are contacting.
If you want to get someone’s attention then you need to make some effort. It’s very easy to spot if someone has taken the time to message you or just copied and pasted the same one for each person. They are usually boring two liners such as “I like your profile. Get in touch.”
So for this reason we strongly advise that you don’t copy and paste messages. This is a terrible tactic that rarely works.
If you do decide to copy and paste, then chances are that you are just wasting your time as well as the person reading the message. You’ll wonder why you aren’t getting any interest and quickly give up.
You don’t need to write long witty essays, just tell them what you liked about their profile, what you have in common and why they should meet you. The idea is to sell yourself and stand out from all the other members on our dating site. If you don’t stand out ( for the right reasons) then you’ll just get lost and nobody will remember you.
It’s so simple really – a little effort and you’ll get much bigger rewards!
