(Quote) Dawn-58330 said: Honestly, if a man really wants to get my attention he should bypass the emotes and go directly to email. A properly crafted email (not a long one) catches my attention. It says that he is interested enough in me to invest some effort and time in real communication. It is also confident and bold. Sometimes we dance around with emotes and it is all too timid for this often cruel world, right?
Dawn, while this may be true for you that probably does not apply to the majority of our users. Based on the numbers of emotigrams sent and read as well as the continued comfort level of texting and the fact that so many of our "member stories" specifically talking recieving an "emotigram" leads us to believe that they are an effective starting point to communication. But of course everyone is different and not all preferences and rules apply to all people 100% of the time. So it is important to try different things and also be open to any signals somoene might be sending you even if it is not your preferred way of being "wooed."
Just as in the real world it is always surprising what gets people's attention. One of the couple's we feature in our videos her attention was grabbed because the guy had a photo(s) of him doing hand stands. Some girls might think that is goofy/lame others goofy/cute and there in lies why meeting and dating is so hard! :)
