Ladies I know some of you get barraged with e-mail every day from all sorts of guys good and bad. But what does a guy write that makes you stop and say let's open this one? I know it's not some cheesy one-liner and a simple hi is boring. So how does a good man get you're attention besides having a great profile picture?

Your face 9 times out of 10 is the reason they don't. Having anything else comes second.

I open them all - and if they aren't a novella I read them all. However in all honesty I answer very few. The reasons vary but here are a couple:

1. Hi wanna chat - nope
2. Read your profile and we have a lot in common - nope (if you went to my profile this is not what you would write as my profile isn't filled our)
3. Call me if you wanna get together xxx-xxx-xxxx -nope
4. Coming into your area for business would love to meet new people - nope (you wanna find someone to bang on your way through)

Most of the time I get responses, due to a few things.


I NEVER start my opening message with just "hi" a little creativity goes a long way in making people want to respond. Think of a good conversation starter

Actually read their profile and make sure to point out pieces of common interest

(this is pretty much why I only message people) if you read something in the forums and want to comment on them in private make mention of it in your headline.


now follow these few tips and still don't get responses and you'll do fine kid.

The most common are those that are on a thread that start an email conversation about a thread we've both been stalking. I respond to these and exchange conversation best with these.

I'll respond to any of them politely if it is evident that someone put thought into their email, if they are long distance I'll offer up virtual friendship only.

OP, if you really want them to read your emails, just print them out and place them on their pillows along with a pic of your junk. Remember, if you're not stalking, you're not trying.

The real question is once you've read the profile of a woman that is attractive, you have some things in common, you think alike and who is probably getting slammed with e-mails, what greetings make you stop and say "I think I'll open this one"?

Half of the time I do not open my mail. It's 99% (insert smiley here) followed by "hi". "We share the same interests", no we don't because mine is blank. You wanting to screw me isn't a shared interest. The emails I have responded to were sweet. Average size paragraph telling me about their interests, what made them write to me, and interjecting questions into the email.

Do you really think a subject line makes a difference? As long as it's not perverted it's fine.

Easy Queen. It's obvious that your e-mail shouldn't be perverted. What I'm asking is say you come home and open your DH mailbox and you have 15 e-mails to go along with the 30 or 40 you've gotten over the last week. You look at pictures and there are some decent looking guys but that only narrows it down to 20. What makes you open one over the other? If it's what's in the subject line then that's what I'm asking you. What does a guy put there to get you to open his over the other 19?

If I'm reading my mail then I read all of them. You're not asking about a subject line. You're asking how hot does a guy have to be in order for someone to open his mail. This is turning into another nice guy thread. I can't tell you what attracts other people. What attracts me to a person has no bearing on what attracts the women you are emailing. The only thing you can do is email them and see what happens. I have only answered 2 email out of 100 probably. If I want to talk to someone I will email them.

If intrigue is what one is looking for - try simply putting:

No thank you


If a woman didn't write you she's going to wonder what the heck you're talking about and open it to find out.

You might want to take a look at who you are sending these messages to. Look to see when the last time they were on-line that is a common mistake some people make, they send a message expecting a reply but the other person has not been on for days or weeks.

Also look at their friend's list and number of gifts they receive if they have lot's of friends and lots of gifts chances are they are receiving tons of messages.

Op...........different things for different women I would suppose.......but obviously I could of think of 3 possible reasons

1.) they know the sender
2.) the title was funny, interesting etc
3.) they though the sender was attractive.......

because that's all they know BEFORE THEY OPEN IT
