but I would argue adamantly that is the most time-efficient tool for any form of dating. I've had at least 40 dates since I moved to my new city and close to half of them have (unsolicited) said by our second drink something along the lines of "wow - this is so different from my other dates." Knowing where they're going (I'm cool and "normal", their other dates are IP guys or accountants with zero social skills/confidence) I will either prompt them further or downplay it and change the subject to something that I'd talk about on a "normal" date.There are several factors that you need to realize to maximize your efforts.I have a few buddies on Match (ranging from lawyer and doctor to valet at a 3 star hotel) and none of them know how to properly target and email. Yes, it takes some time to fire off a custom email, but there is a pattern than you can draw from and once you get the hang of it you can crank out a funny and effective custom email in under 5 minutes. But Match is awesome and should be an important part of your arsenal if you have the right characteristics.
If you want to attract a quality partner, you need to show why others should choose what you are offering over everybody else.
And without learning how to write perfect online dating emails, you will never have the perfect sales pitch.
I intend for this to be a "living thread" that I'll add to as needed.
My main point is to pep talk you guys and demonstrate what kinds of emails work well.
The Arch Deluxe was nothing short of a marketing disaster.
