My emails have been very original like "Hi how are you, you look nice, I would like to get to know you, have you had a good weekend". Any Idea on how I can improve on sending opening emails to girls. I used to write Hi, I found your profile intriguing. I did not like getting the canned "tease" or "icebreaker" if that's what you call it.
I wasn't a huge fan of the first words mentioning my looks.
I know, "men are visual" but it felt a little objectifying to have that be the very first part.

• Constantly answer your phone or send text messages • Don’t talk enough or make an effort with conversation Most importantly, and perhaps the best advice of all, is to be yourself and relax.
What you write should indicate (a) that you've read their profile (b) you have an interest in something about them by asking them a question (c) you keep it short (a few lines), light, and positive and (d) you have a sense of humor.
Do not talk a lot about yourself unless you are asked about it. Refer to the person's name (or user name), details about them, etc.
The chances are your date will follow suit and you’ll be in for a fabulous first date.
