Initiating conversation online dating
The dating rituals between men and women can be challenging enough without having to wonder where things like e-mail and initiating communication on e Harmony fall into place.
So let’s take a closer look of how men and women relate to one another online.
So when it comes to initiating communication on e Harmony, Susan, please do not hesitate to send a set of first questions to someone whose profile catches your eye, and continue to do so with each and every one of your matches you have even the slightest bit of interest in.
Not only are most men thrilled when a woman lets them know that she is interested and finds them attractive, but when you start getting to know the men you’ve been matched with, you also may be surprised to find that your attraction for those who you weren’t sure about in the beginning might be stronger than ones you thought for sure would work based on profile alone. Then if there is mutual interest and you have been communicating online for awhile, let him pursue you to the next level—asking for your phone number—then if all goes well, perhaps out on your first date.
Does a woman starting contact take the “thrill of the chase” away from a guy?
Sincerely, Susan, Idaho Falls, ID Answer Dear Susan, Thank you for your great question.
I’d like you to keep in mind that honesty, no matter what the truth, is better than any other version; it’s better to know up front if someone is not interested.
Being closed out doesn’t always happen, so please be strong and persevere.
Some people find this form of communication limiting and want to skip to emailing directly – this is fine if you are both ready to do that but don’t be pressured into anything that you are not comfortable with.All of your matches have been found already to be deeply compatible on 29 Dimensions of Compatibility, which is already a big step in the right direction to become acquainted with people that you’ll really enjoy getting to know—and who will really enjoy getting to know you, too.Equally important, these people come to e Harmony looking for the same thing: an open and honest sharing of information.Luckily here at e Harmony we understand how difficult this process can be so we have developed tools to help you every step of the way. Use the resources available When you are matched with someone and you view their profile for the first time, on the right hand side of the screen you will see a number of options available which you can use to make the initial contact.
You can send an ice breaker which is probably the best way to establish whether the interest is mutual.The other advantage of using the guided communication process is that you will get to view more information about your match including their ‘must haves’ and ‘can’t stands’ and you can even share your personality profiles if you choose to. Stay safe Online communication can create a sense of comfort and intimacy but we can’t stress enough how important it is for you to take your time getting to know your match.
