    Men. I'm glad I was able to read this... I'll try to stay away from email like that from now on.

    Either am not a hottie or I have fewer issues than the average girl... but the most this will get from me is a smile and a thank you

    It sounds too generic and canned... but I will give it points for sounding all cool and casual. I believe I can supply better worded emails and private messages if I dig in my inbox enough...

    I'm going to try this out. But I'm going to add the girls username after I say "Hey". That way it seems a bit more personal.

    Sorry Maestro, I see several things wrong with it.

    - Don't talk about drinking. (they might just assume you're just drunk writing them. Its not flattering.
    - Your first sentence sounds like a generic pickup line. Girls hate "pickup lines"
    - Don't ask to be forgiven about the stuff you write.
    - Don't say: "Now that i have won you over...". Its borderline arrogant (not to mention kind of creepy).

    For the longest time I didn't put much consideration into the "Subject Line". Those days have changed as of immediately. Now I'm more inclined to believe they can serve a vital role in your success.

    Before I would use subject lines like: "This is my subject line" or "Curious to know more"

    Well no wonder they never got read. The subject line isn't compelling. It didn't create curiosity or anticipation.

    Below are some new one's I recently made up.

    SUBJECT LINES TO USE:

    Wait! You're about to MAKE a HUGE mistake! Don't do it!

    It's that time again.

    Fools rush in…

    Mixed feelings about writing this…

    Did you get a warning?

    Hey, you'd better stop that right now!

    Oh no you didn’t!

    (I know these posts are outdated, but people are still reading them--as I found myself doing tonight.)

    Actually, Rezn8 is on to something here: always use a clever subject line or your message will most likely be passed. For example, subject lines such as 'hi," "hello," and (as stated above) "this is my subject line" draw little excitement and show no creativity. As a matter of fact, think of the hundred other "hi' messages she gets during each log in and make sure you avoid being just like those other hundred.

    Instead, you should be innovative with your subject lines; try things that are off the wall--though not raunchy--and see what happens. Like many others have suggested it's hit or miss, really.

    I've used 'Uh Oh...', 'Oh My...' ,'Snickers' and 'Snoopy' and sometimes 'I'm curious...' as the subject line, and get a decent response on POF and other sites.

    Here is an opening email that gets pretty good replies from HB, and it matches my humorous profile:

    "Well,

    I'm not too good at writing emails to people I don't know, so bear with me.

    There was something about your profile that caught my attention, I'm not sure what it was but I'd like to find out. Something tells me that you might be more than just a cute face. {add some personalization here if you comment on her profile, e.g. Maybe it was your taste in music and hiking that did it. }

    I'm willing to bet you a doughnut that you're getting about 500 emails a day from loser guys that say "Hey beautiful, ur soooo sexy. Wanna do it? I'm a 35 year old sewage plant worker with three brat kids. On the upside, I finally have a chance to move out of this RV park."

    [Sometimes I switch it up with 'bet you a doughnut that you're getting 500 emails from 65 year old men offering to be your sugar daddy....']

    If that's the case then this email should be *really* refreshing for you.

    I'm not one to talk about myself, but I'll say this: I'm 45, attractive, an artist, adventurer, Mad Scientist (The good kind!), and have my life together. And I'm funny..... really funny, so be ready.

    Worse case? You seem like you might make a cool friend, so lets get together for drinks or coffee.

    X

    The comment about her cute face is the only AFC thing there, but sometimes I change it to 'intriguing profile'

    X
    SMILE , and Don't care.

    I myself, like the OP, have gotten untold amounts of online box. the thing I dont like about OnlineDating is the frauds, as well the women just seem to be TOO easy.

    In any event, in the case of introductary emails; short is ALWAYS better.

    The longer your email in length, the more power you are giving to the person; so as to say "hey look at all this i typed for you." this is not much unlike my lengthy response; but where as mines is purposely used to convey my opinion, yours will convey desperation.(or maybe I convey that same desperation in this matter, oh well)

    your first email. should be no more than 2 sentences. exp=

    sentence1:
    Hey, I saw your profile, you seem "interesting"(if they are sexy)
    or
    Hey, I saw your profile, I like your "style"(if they're not all that)

    sentence2:
    Check out my page, I would like to get to know you
    (if they are sexy)
    or
    Check out my page, maybe we can get together to have a drink
    (if they're not all that)

    put your name at the bottom, and your golden.

    Also. I have never put much thought into subject titles, but "WOW" may be a little to much in my opinion. what really make you say wow? is it really that serious?

    I like what Rezn8 said by "thinking out the box" as far as titles go

    But keep in mind: NO ONE LIKES SPAM!

    A few titles I would be inclined to use:

    OK..= letting them know everything is going good so far
    I see you..=letting them know you like what you see
    lets see..= tying to see what can happen between you too
    drinks?..= lets them know you are willing to meet them.

    I just made the above examples. the last one I believe is about as good as it gets; coupled with my 2 sample phrases= thank me later!



    power to the powerfull
