Online dating turn-ons #2: Showing interest in ME

As I promised to put a positive spin on my internet dating experiences and talk about online dating turn-0ns, rather than turn-offs, I’ll do my best to flip this one on its head.

So I-dated-someone-you-know Boy and I have exchanged a few more emails but to be honest, I’m getting a bit bored already. Which doesn’t bode well. The last three emails from him have been a little pedestrian. And in them he has not asked me ONE question about me. So my guess would be he’s not very interested in me, and as a result, I’m not in him either.

Humphf.

So where’s that positive spin? Oh yes: A tip for the boys: If you want to get her attention and get her interested in you, ask her questions about her life, interests, pastimes, dreams, etc., etc. Make the questions original and you’ll score extra points. Not just ‘so what do you do for fun?’. Yawn.

Find things on her profile that make her different and ask about those. Show her that you find her interesting (and for heaven’s sake, be sincere about it or move on) and she will be flattered and find you increasingly interesting in return.
