So emailing one JDate man a day isn’t as easy as I thought it was. Obviously, it’s easy to find men – doing a basic search for a man within an 11-year age range within 40 miles of my home turns up 166 names. And that’s kind of a narrow window; obviously, if I expanded my search range I’ll expand my options.
That’s not the problem.
The problem is that JDate just doesn’t give me anything to go on. Frankly, I find the Relationship questions useless.
Hi. I see you’re looking for someone with whom to go to the movies. I like movies . . . want to go out?
Why, hello – I see you’re looking for a long term relationship. Well, so am I!
Greetings. I see that your perfect first date would be to chat over a cup of coffee. Well, what a coincidence – so is mine!
And the Basics – the About me section isn’t much more help. Usually there’s just not enough there to help me out with a sensible email. Unless someone’s mentioned a common interest or occupation, it’s a struggle to find a good intro.
I wish that JDate had some icebreaker type of questions similar to OKCupid or Match. Even trivial stuff like favorite movies, books or foods – it would give me a little more material.
The problem is that, when I send an email, I like for it to reflect why I’m interested in emailing HIM. If they want to read about me, they can go to my profile. I know that when I receive an email from someone on an online site I like to know why they chose to email me.
Just my two cents’ worth.
