I did some searching around the forum, and I failed to find a thread on c-date, so I take the liberty of starting one and hope some of you have some good clues for me.
As you might have guessed by now, I recently signed up for c-date. For those of you who are not familiar with the concept, this is a site designed for casual dating. Making a profile is simple, because there are very few things to fill in. Anonymity is key. You can add a picture, and choose when to un-blur it to a contact; you add you height, figure, hair, eyes and starsign, and that is it. The only thing left is to pick five photos from a gallery that are to illustrate your mood. Evidently, mine is "a bit romantic". Then the page will give you a handful of contacts each day, and these you can write, but of course their profiles have no more information than yours.
The tricky part is how to open when these are the only clues you have?
I have tried a few things: I have tried some remarks on the sign they are, asking if black eyes and blond hair is a normal combination, commenting on their height (I am tall myself), and I have tried several varitites on these mood pictures. This has been pretty much in vain.
Most respones have been scammers asking for my e-mail and money for a plane ticket; two have answered politely, but without giving me anything to work on; and one where the talk is mindless and sad (a poor girl with plenty of issues is not what I was hoping for in my casual date, and now I doubt we can get off that track).
Any ideas on how to open with a funny remark on their profile and get a reply?
