When trying to spark someone’s interest over email, you’ve got to be fun, engaging and good at creating a rapport, while keeping an element of mystery. Do: be proactive Don’t let that classic British reserve hold you back.
Accept that dating online will involve some chasing.
Additionally, online dating is less competitive than the bar/club scene.
With that said, you still need to put thought into how you are going to connect with someone online.
Don’t: lead someone on If you’re not keen, make it tactfully clear as soon as possible. If someone contacts you and you’re not interested, be respectful enough to send a short and thoughtful rejection.
