Online dating rules etiquette

A good rule of thumb: if you aren’t available for a date within 7 days of sending the message, don’t send it.

NOT-SO-SMOOTH OPERATOR The scenario: “I recently received a message that said, ‘Damn you’re a pretty white girl, you into muscular black men?

It’s also a good idea of avoid projecting into the future and saying things like “We could do this together …”, and when it comes to the sign-off, ‘Yours sincerely’ is obviously out of place, but ‘Love and kisses’ can seem a bit premature.

‘All the best’, or maybe something like ‘Cheers’ is probably closest to the right sort of tone.

By writing this in your profile, you’re telling people that you’re not smart or self-aware enough to write it yourself.You do this by being original and, above all, specific about your interests.Instead of saying that you like sunsets, mention the best sunset you’ve ever seen.Still, navigating the world of online dating can definitely be tricky—what kind of message is clever, but not creepy?What the hell are you supposed to say about yourself in your profile? [pagebreak] OUT-OF-TOWN AND OUT OF TOUCH The scenario: “A guy sent me a message saying that he wanted to meet up for a drink, but when I asked when he was free, he said he was ‘going out of town’ for the next two weeks and that we should schedule something after.” — Andrea, 31 The problem..the solution: If you tell a girl you’re “going out of town,” she’s going to assume you’re busy dating other women.Not only can they keep things running smoothly, but, more importantly, they can show your respect for other Parship members.
