Ok gentlemen, in this installment of Thai Online Dating 101, we are going to tackle how you should be writing your subject lines and messages. Messages: For your actual message body, I stick to the same guidelines as above. After the subject line, I only do 1-3 more sentences.This, a long with your profile photo, is going to forge your first impression. Long and drawn out messages are detrimental in my opinion.First impressions are even more important in online dating than they are in a face to face encounter. Don’t try to be too funny, too clever or fit too much into the subject line. These girls are getting lots of messages and many have limited English skills.
Attractive girls receive even more attention online than in person, so you have to make your message count. There are two main strategies I like to use for my subject lines. I like to give the girls something simple to answer in my messages to get the conversation moving.
Subject Lines: For the subject line on Thai Love Links (note there is no subject line for Thai Friendly, so I just use the first line of my message as my subject line) I like to keep it short and sweet. I either like to go with a humorous/flirty subject line, or a more direct subject line. Humorous subject lines are good to grab attention, and show the girl some of your personality. I say something nice about them, while also complimenting myself in a joking/playful manner. I like to throw in some Thai and use “Phom suay maak! ;)” This gets very good responses and sets the playful tone for the conversation. Play with the suggestions above and see what works and feels comfortable for you. It can be anything from their name, to where/what they study, where they live, etc. I have found from experience that many Thai girls with less than stellar English abilities view this as meaning sex. Something short and sweet to get them to open the message is your best bet. Don’t say anything too sexual early on unless you are only looking for a quick one night stand with a less than “proper” Thai girl. My message strategy for success all laid out for you.
I am a flirty and fun guy, so I use the subject line to convey that. I have a shaved head, so I like to tell girls “You have very pretty hair. If I want to keep it extra playful, and the girl has sunglasses on, or is wearing a hat, or something in the photo that stands out, I will tell them that they must give it to me. I think you must give them to me.” is good to use in place of asking a basic question, or a long with it. If you tell them you want to meet for drinks and to have some fun, they may take this as drinks and sex. Feel free to mix and match phrases and see what works best for you.
Show them that you have some character, and are not just copy and pasting the “You are so beautiful” or “Will you have sex with me? Be careful not to get too elaborate or clever though, as many girls will not understand them. Most girls will understand that you are being playful, and even if she doesn’t, you said nothing to offend. I like your hair.” Hair and smile are generally the features I focus on. So basically, 1-3 additional sentences in the message body consisting of some combination of a playful joke and/or one to two basic questions. If you have any questions/comments drop them in the comments box below and I’ll be sure to answer them as best I can.
The words you choose for your email subject lines can have a big impact on whether or not the hard work you’ve put into your email will pay off.
Spending a little extra time on your subject line will help you boost email open rates, avoid the junk folder, and get your message in front of the right people.
Before you hit send on your next email, here are 12 tweaks to consider: What good is your subject line if people can’t read it?
Make sure your subject line doesn’t get cut short by keeping it under 50 characters (the sweet spot on the desktop) or about five to seven words.
If a girl has a lot of photos in her profile, you can make a joke such as “So many photos. Often they will respond with something like “5555 I not model, I work in office! I use the emoticon (which I would NEVER use back in the US) to help convey I am being playful. A sample might be something like: “What is your name? ;)” This gives them something to answer to make them more likley to respond, as well as something funny to set the mood.
Emoticons are fine to use in Thailand, though don’t abuse them. If I feel like being more direct, I will go with something simple such as “I like your smile. It also gives you an insight into their personality and English ability, depending on how they respond.
