At times, members of Russian Love Match are turned off by vague emails from women on the site. The men worry the lack of details mean the women are blasting emails to as many men as possible and aren't interested in finding a match. Here area few things to keep in mind when it comes to email and the women of RLM.
First, it’s not unusual for men, particularly new members, to receive an overwhelming amount of email. Unlike traditional dating sites, Russian Love Match has significantly more women then men. The ladies know this and therefore try to reach out to as many interesting men as possible. If just 0.5% of RLM's women sent a new member an email, he’d still find 50 messages in his inbox. It doesn’t take much for the messages to pile up.
The lopsided membership base is also behind vague introductory emails. The women know they might not receive a reply to their mail, so in the interest of saving time they send a generic message instead. Once a man replies, the communication will become more personal and specific. It’s also important to note that men send generic messages as well. While it would be ideal if singles wrote personalized messages each and every time, it just doesn’t happen.
If you're feeling overwhelmed by the amount of email you receive, be sure to take advantage of RLM's Black Book tool! It's a great way to organize messages and keep details straight.
