A friend asked me what I thought was a strange question. First, you must realize most of your messages are not going to be answered.
He wanted to know if he could send a second message to a woman online if she didn’t respond to his first. If one out of 10 messages gets an answer, you are doing OK.
Or you may look forward to meeting a match from a dating site all week, only to find that, although your date portrayed himself accurately online, you’re disappointed when you meet him offline.
People are complex, and the reasons why we do or don’t hit it off with one another can be unpredictable.
For a new startup, the best way to assure survival is to file patents or other intellectual property to keep future competitors from copying your success.
We default to friendly over controversial, even at the risk of sounding dull.
“We have so much in common,” says one character in the movie Best in Show, exemplifying what first-date strategies yield.
However, if you do not get a reply, you can certainly send another message if you like.
Do not waste time analyzing why your message failed. There are three types of follow-ups I like to send, all of which have worked wonders for me. I’m not sure where I heard of this one first, but I find it works particularly well with younger women.
