Hi forum buddies, I have a few quick questions for you: whats the most appropriate way to first initiate contact to someone on CM? Either in a message or Emotigram whats an appropriate message for first contact?
Thoughts from my own experience...
Send an emote or a message about something that caught your eye in their profile... something about who they are, what they love...
Do not send a message stating anything about physical appearance- hey beautiful, hey sexy, you're hot, etc. For some (many?) women serious about finding their "one" this is a TOTAL turn off. It is also best to quickly move past the "How are you?" "What are you up to this weekend?" stage. That gets boring rather quickly and the lady will lose interest.
It is also important that emailing not go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on.... you get the point. Get face-to-face as soon as possible (as soon as the lady is comfortable and knows you're not a creep.)
Offer your number first and recommend that she block her number until she is comfortable with you... chivalrous to the extreme!
Blessings on your search!
First and foremost, if you don't bother to look at my profile before sending an emote or message. Chances are I will not respond. It bafles me why people send things out without even reading a little bit about the person.
Most of the time I respond to emotes with a short message. Blank emotes most of the time are ignored.
What gets my attention the most is if you take the time to write a message. It doesn't have to be long, but it shows a little more effort.
