“10 Fatal Online Dating Errors That Men Make”

Post to Twitter

Below are excerpts from the Top 10 email turnoffs for women in bold, with a bit of editorialization:

1. Don’t ask her how much she weighs. Apparently some people don’t like getting this question from strangers. Go figure.

2. Don’t email her seven times asking her why she hasn’t responded to your first email. She might be busy weighing herself to respond to your previous query, and the additional six e-mails could be a distraction from this.

4. Don’t send her a nasty email if she hasn’t responded to you after several emails. While it may get her attention, it is unlikely to make her want to date you.

5. Don’t ask her if she wants to have sex with you on the second email exchange, and don’t send her dirty pictures of you. I actually think asking about sex is less rude than asking her how much she weighs, but it might seem a little abrupt. Some women might welcome the directness and the dirty pictures, if dirty signifies “nude.” If dirty means unwashed, or engaging in sexual activities with “my ex, that bitch,” this may very well be a turn off to many.

9. Do not email-stalk her. Always trenchant dating advice, I’d say.

    The tough truth is she probably will never respond to your email, if she hasn’t already… Save yourself the time and move on! If she hasn’t seen your message yet, then at least haven’t hassled her and will *maybe* get a response!

    I STILL cannot believe how many guys send pics of “themselves” to women… Look, if its an adult site, dedicated to swingers or something like that then mmaaayyybbeee it’s OK..

    Nice top-10 list Ann…
