I think we should get to know each other — we can email at first if you like, but let me know if you want to talk on the phone — sometimes its better to hear each other’s voice. We share so many interests — I’m a teacher, too, and I love playing tennis on the weekends. You have gorgeous eyes, and your smile absolutely made my day.Let’s email a little bit to see if we’d get along well.
Whether you’re responding to someone else’s email or initiating one yourself, you have a chance to hit the ball out of the park and make a perfect first impression, or totally kill any interest in you this person may have had.
One thing is for sure — as the cliche says, you only have one chance to make a first impression, so the pressure’s on.
You need to reveal facts and values about yourself, again cloaked in humor or slight self deprecation, but the point is — be interesting.
Just like being interviewed for a job, you want to show certain important things — yes you want this date, but you must remind the potential date that you have value, that you are worth something and should be considered for a date for other reasons than the bare fact that you “need a date”.
Couldn’t help but notice your interest in black and white movies.
