In case it’s not obvious: Demonstrate creativity, intelligence and a great sense of humour • Be totally different to anything she may have received before • Be obviously unique and not a cut-and-paste job • Show that I’ve read her profile and absorbed facts about her • Not be needy!

I have dedicated an entire volume of my bestselling audio series, Finding the One Online to how to write emails just like this.

He has no idea what to write in his first email to you, and he’s competing with hundreds of men for your attention.

Be patient, write a better profile, and learn not to get so frustrated with men, and you can enjoy online dating a lot more.

• The two most attractive women received 83% of all messages.

• The two most attractive women probably would have received several thousand more if their inboxes hadn’t have reached maximum capacity.

As a man, your takeaway is that the competition is fierce, and thus far, you have not been up to it.

Stop blaming Match or women or your city for your failures and learn to market yourself more effectively.

• It took 2 months, 13 days for the most popular woman’s inbox to fill up.

At the current rate it would take the most popular man 2.3 years to fill up his. Well, you’ve seen this a few times before:“Most men compliment the attractive women a lot, they make reference to something in the woman’s profile (you would not believe how many times men mentioned the party tricks and ‘Arrow’ the cheetah from the generic profile I wrote), or they ask a general question about travel or something equally boring.” What SHOULD he write instead?

I contend that as long as nobody is being willfully creepy (I see you, guys in Ferrari hats), this kind of limitation is mega lame.

I know many smoking-hot middle-aged people who are emotional teenagers.

Online dating may be a jungle, but it’s a jungle with a LOT of single people, so it’s best to learn how to master the process.
