What questions to ask in an online dating site
I’ve been seeing this great girl for a month, and I just discovered that her profile is still up.
Should I break things off, or can I ask her to take it down?
If it’s only to say "Thanks, I had a wonderful evening," you could do that the very next day.
However, I would wait several days before contacting the person by phone, because you don’t want to sound too needy.
If I email someone and don’t get a response, can I email the person again, or would that be a turnoff? Maybe the person accidentally deleted his or her email messages, had a computer crash (which happened to me once) or went on vacation.
So let a week go by, then email a simple, polite message saying you would like to touch base, and see what happens.
Many people feel that if nothing happens in the first five minutes, nothing could ever happen, but the reality is it usually takes two or three dates before you’re comfortable with someone.
Is it true that your photo is all anyone really pays attention to?
A lot of people — not just men — have the attention span of 2-year-olds.
I recommend at least getting to a phone call after a few email exchanges and then going from there.
After all, how hard is it to fire a simple “hello there! Consider, however, just how much email the average person receives in a day.
To make sure your message breaks through the cacophony, you might want to brush up on your icebreakers.
