First of all, when searching for a potential partner, it’s important to keep a few things in mind: 1. In the long run, will it really matter if someone is 5’8 vs. Many women think that making the first move might make them lose the upper hand at the get-go or seem less feminine. Again, we need to go for what we want in life, and it starts here.
And there are plenty of things about me guaranteed to cause daily match surfers to lunge for the “next” button – as in, we know that a substantial percentage of American women don’t find bald guys attractive, period. Since there’s nothing I can do about some of these things (short of leaving Denver and joining Hair Club), I decided to go straight at the issue as best I could. Here’s how I began: The great thing about Match is the chance to meet women I might never encounter otherwise.We exchanged a couple of e-mails and I was thinking that maybe I’d like to meet her in person. I’d love to get back into it, though, but haven’t so far because I hate doing things alone. I have historically hit periods when, as a result of where I lived or the structure of my daily life, I had a hard time meeting women, but I’ve never had trouble getting dates when I was actually around eligible women.I knew as I hit the send button that I’d never hear from her again. I tried to play it straight, using my profile to tell the wonderful women of the 5280 who I was as best I could – what I do for a living, what I do for fun, what my interests are, and so forth. My experience, though, has begun to make me feel like an untouchable.So if you don’t send the first email, that perfect match you’ve noticed may never find you. As for what to include in the email, it’s actually pretty simple: 1.Something about his/her profile that caught your attention; 2.As history has it, when people defected from My Space to Facebook, that online community became a dust town.
