So what if hot chicks get deluged with awfully mean and awfully written emails – they’re hot chicks. I was a little surprised at your ruthlessness, but hey, I’m a hot chick. (I’m working on a catchphrase here.) This week’s lesson from Olivia is far more practical. When you get a lot of emails, it’s very easy for most of them to just get lost and drowned out, even ones that I liked. I TOULD YOU about the power of the second email months ago, and I’m happy to see Olivia agrees.
I asked her one question, and the response I received was pure gold. When you’ve got a bunch of emails to choose from, it’s pretty hard to select one that, in the one moment it has to advertise, offers only the word “(none)”. So, generally I’ll go back and find their original message, reread their new message, look at their profile, and decide whether to respond. I actually think it’s not a bad idea to send two emails to everyone you write, if you feel like spending that sort of time on Internet dating, and don’t mind veering dangerous close to serial killer zone.
My question: What’s the one thing I can do in my Match email to make sure you’ll respond. First thing to consider is something you probably think little about: your subject line. So, don’t send a third, fourth, or fifth message to someone. A third attempt comes off as desperate and obsessed.
To elucidate her point, Olivia sent me a screengrab of her inbox. I have had some guys seriously send multiple messages with no responses.
No, there will be no more stories of woe, no more pleas for sympathy for the complicated predicament of being an attractive lady online. That might sound like a lot of time, but it generally only takes 10-30 seconds to read a message.
I read your emails, and I get it: you don’t give a shit. When someone starts off saying they’re emailing me again, it’s like I feel bad for ignoring them and thus I pay more attention to them.

Just because someone is hot doesn’t mean I’m going to respond, either.(The ladies call me Denzel Goslington.) In closing, I’d like to thank our lovely Olivia for this very instructive session.It’s advice that I believe applies to all of us, whether we’re searching for a cute older straight guy or an exotic younger lesbian lady. She’s happy to answer more questions, so if you have any quandaries of your own, send them my way, and I’ll see what we can do. Oh, and before she finished, Olivia hand one more It’s Not a Match credo to reinforce: If you want to get my attention, your only bet is to send an email, because that’s the only reason I’m going to look at your profile. I was curious as to what your real opinion is of online dating.
