So why is it that so many guys and girls (yes girls too) fail miserably in avoiding the move from the Inbox to the trash can?
Extensive research into online dating statistics show that there are some set rules that we all need to follow.
Our subconscious tells us that it’s rude not to answer a question so your chances are increased ten fold by just asking.
Unless you are actively seeking a partner of a specific faith, then it is probably a good idea to leave out any religious words in your first message.
Mails that contain these words will get practically no replies proving that intelligence (or maybe just good grammar) is an attractive trait in both sexes.
I know this is not marketing school but, like a marketer, you are trying to reel someone in.
And just like an ad agency makes a call to action, you can too, by simply asking about an interest or even suggesting a dinner date.
That’s not to say you should never mention your religion, but unless it is very important to you, then you can leave it till you meet in person.
Religion is always a bit of a minefield in the dating game and you really need to be careful not to offend anyone or risk being offended yourself.
Whereas as over confidence can often be a turn off in a first message.
