Keep in mind that women on the Internet will talk with a lot of other men, not just you.
So, call her up as soon as you can, politely introduce yourself and then work your way up from there until you ask her out on a real date and she agrees.
After all, you don’t want to end up going on a date with a woman later on down the line just to see her react unpleasantly because she expected you to look very different from what you really look like, do you? Let her know that you’ve read her profile and find her very interesting. If you end up exchanging emails with a girl that you like, make it a point to get her number early on.
As mentioned in the previous tip: honesty is key – not just in your words, but in your photos, as well. Statistics show that women on dating websites are generally more mature than the men on them. With that in mind, you should always send out emails that will make a great impression on them. Then, ask her to read your profile and to only reply if she finds you very interesting, too. If you just keep sending emails back and forth for too long, she might start seeing you as nothing but an online pen pal and then get sick of you after a while. If you have already gotten to know each other quite well over the Internet and if you have already gotten her phone number, then make it a point to call her within the next few days.
I’ve left it open on the off chance that a girl will message me first and I’ve had a few, just not ones I’m interested in (ie, not fit).
