BAD (2nd email):
So, what does a man have to do to get your attention and maybe even a conversation out of you?
Get over yourself.
I noticed from your profile that we have quite a few things in common. Like you, I’m a foodie and enjoy trying out new restaurants in the city. Do you have any new favorites?
I moved into the city 2 years ago (from Chicago). I live downtown and love it here. How long have you lived in the city?
I have to say your picture caught my attention, you look beautiful. Let me know if you would like to chat, would be great to learn more about you.
So, why is the GOOD email…GOOD?
“Richard” did the following, and so should you (both guys & girls):
And of course, always SPELL CHECK :->
