Ive read things on the internet that supposedly say 80 or 90 percent of guys do the same things wrong in writing their online personal ads, and they say the wrong things when they send someone a message on those sites. Im probably most likely one of those guys that does slight things wrong, not realizing it...saying the same things, and not doing or saying enough eye catching stuff, yet, I do whatever I think using common sense, and not sounding boring or perverse....with authenticity, yet highlighting the good things. Does anyone have any insight into this concept? There are things on the internet that charge you 100s of dollars to tell you secrets that 90 percent of guys dont know about how to build their online personal ad, but in this economy, who's going to fork that money out over and over to do that. Has anyone here had success at dating online, or writing the perfect type of personal ad, or saying the right things in your first email to the lady or guy of your choice?
