What’s your favourite use of the word crucifixion in the work of band Memonto Mori? [well, we’re not saying it’s foolproof, of course if the person you are messaging isn’t into metal or vegetarianism then you may be wasting your well-spelt words. The optimal first outreach from a woman to a man is just 50 characters long, according to this post.
Why do women only respond to a small percentage of emails? Let’s say you were asked to select one of the cows in the field to pet.
Because most of the emails are horribly written or the guy sending it has a lousy profile. Chances are you would select the purple cow simply because it’s the only one that stood out.
But it’s what the stats show: “Mentioning your religion helps you, but, paradoxically, it helps you most if you have no religion.” Cupid reports.
Taking all this advice at once would mean that a practically irresistable best first message ever would be: Howdy. Amazing, I’m listening to some right now as I rissole carrots for a vegetarian souffle.
I don't usually start off a post with the impact points right at the beginning.
But I want to lay these out first -- because they're so vital to solid message writing -- and we'll get into the "whys" and the "hows" in a moment.
#2 – Avoid physical compliments General compliments work well – but pitching in with u r hot in the first message is statistically proven not to work. Not surprisingly men tend to do this more than women. #3 – Use an unusual greeting This surprised me but I guess it makes sense. Words like “awkward” and “apologise” get higher than average response rates.
Apparently starting with a generic Hello or Hi made people slightly less likely to respond to your message. #7 – Consider becoming an atheist Well this is an odd one.
Only a small percentage of emails that are sent by men are ever opened by women. What if, out of that crowd of cows, one of them was bright purple?
