How Can I Increase My Chances of an E-mail Reply?

28. December 2009 by Daniel 0 Comments

It is sometimes the case that a gentleman does not immediately receive a reply after sending an e-mail to one of the Russian ladies featured on Russian Love Match. A gentleman may check for new messages frequently as he waits days or weeks to hear back from that one particular lady who has captured his interest.

 

It is important to keep in mind that each lady has her personal obligations that may prevent her from replying right away. While we cannot guarantee that every message will generate a reply, there are ways to tweak your messages to increase the liklihood that a lady will not overlook your expression of interest.

 

Here are a few tips. 

 

Keep it Short and Sweet

If you send a Russian lady a block of seemingly endless text as your first message, she is not likely to read the whole thing and she is even less likely to reply to it. Don’t write a novel in your first message. Keep it simple by telling her you like her and would like to get to know more about her. Perhaps make a comment on a mutual interest you both share. Diving into details too early won’t leave much to be desired.

 

Stay Honest

It can be tempting to embellish a few details here and there when talking about yourself in an online forum. Some gentlemen fudge their height, weight, or age. Some may make embellishments about what they do for a living. Keep in mind that your Russian bride is going to like you for who you are and not for something you claim to be. This being the case, honesty really is always the best policy. It doesn’t mean that you necessarily have to divulge all of your deepest secrets to a lady. But being honest about who you are will save you from getting caught in a lie.

 

Be Polite

Always remember to put your best face forward in an online forum. This goes as much for the words you type as it does for any images you post. Being a gentleman will get you far, especially with Russian women, who value a chivalrous man. Being forceful or vulgar, in contrast, will make a lady lose interest in you very quickly.

 

Remember to take things slow. Ask her about her life and things that interest her. Compliment her. As things progress and you get to know each other, you can then take the conversation to a more informal level.

 

Don’t Jump to Conclusions

It is particularly easy when corresponding with a foreign lady to misinterpret her words or actions. Occasionally, gentlemen will relate concerns to us about something a lady said to them online that seemed unusual in one way or another. More often than not, these incidents are the result of cultural misunderstandings or turns of phrase that become skewed in translation. It is best to try to figure out for yourself what it is that a lady is trying to say before jumping to conclusions. If you are not sure, ask her and give her a chance to explain.

 

Sticking to these guidelines in writing your first messages will greatly improve your chances of sparking a conversation with a lady you like. Write to some of our ladies now by logging on to RussianLoveMatch.com.
