Ask her a question that conjures up a pleasant daydream, or makes her laugh.
See if you are guilty of doing any of the following. ” The crux of most email exchanges is taking something the other person did and saying, “Me, too”! ” Who would a woman rather go out with – the boring lunkhead who asks for her number before he’s had a chance to charm her, or the witty guy whose every email she anticipates with delight? And studies show that confidence and humor are the two most desirable qualities in both men AND women.
Dear X (1) I just read your profile (2) and thought it was really great (3). Anyway, check out my profile (6) and see if you like what you read (7). There’s nothing wrong with a “Me, too” email, but how is someone supposed to respond? ” Establishing commonality is often a symbol of trying too hard to sell yourself. So instead of playing the blame game and pointing fingers at people who take a long time to email, or say nothing interesting, or write only one line, step up and try a little harder yourself.
Just today, I was on the phone with a client who was sharing the same experience with me: “ It wasn’t until she showed me one really GOOD email from a guy that she started to get it. But look at the emails you write back to the boring men.
He asked her a silly question and started grilling her with more and more trivia questions, teasing her about what she might win if she got all the questions right. “It made me funny in response to him,” she replied. They’re just as boring as the ones that you received.
And yet this one guy with the trivia questions was able to bring out your playful side.” The moral of the story is that you are ALWAYS responsible for how you leave a conversation. By being optimistic, playful, interested and interesting, you can almost always transform any evening into a pleasant experience.
