what is a good way to introduce myself,


You can start with your name. Women usually want to refer to you sometimes in the formal.


like its alot of guys on here fronting and looking for one night stands..


Gee, does that ruin your game?


so its hard to stand out from the pack.


Even harder when they don't know your name.


cause im genuinely looking for love.


You're too young for that kind of commitment. Look for passion and ride that wave for a few months.
When you're 25, then you can tell women that line, you're genuinely looking for love.

This isn't helping you stand out.

God ? Come on man this is the 21st not the 1st Century.

He's American, they say things like that. There's a very popular English YouTube person who happened to mention once that he's an atheist, and he got dozens if not hundreds of comments saying things like "I can't watch your videos now I know you're an atheist, I'm so upset".

Anyway, that's another discussion entirely. My point is while "I love God" would send most people running for the hills in this country, that's not necessarily true in other cultures (and the US is a different culture, despite the common language).

Hopefully you can get some useful tips, Bcaesar720, but there's no one right way to make a first approach. Tastes vary too widely. Some love to be paid compliments on their appearance right off the bat, while others find that creepy. Some like to sent a goofily humorous message, while others find that frivolous.

Hand to God (Yeah, I'm an AMERICAN I wrote GOD), complete sentences with proper punctuation will go a long way.

Your profile introduces you on here. Pics are a key. Put on a shirt and hopefully find a friend to take some pics NOT in a bathroom mirror for starters.

Learn how to do a thread search in the forums. Try first contact or first message.

Use like three periods at the end of it... Like you are waiting for their reply...

Or don't... Female friend on here finds that really creepy... For some reason...

I like your profile and alluring and concise nice work.
Its key that you send out many messages just for practice so to speak so it will become less awkward for you to talk to women.
I would say pick your top three and then send messages to 20-50 other people and once you are more comfortable writing and responding to people go after your favorites =)

Have fun and talk to them like they are your best friend in your messages which comes with time and writing a lot.

One of the best responses I ever got from sending at a string of random messages was at this time my first date section said "I am into having sex before the first date."

This cute woman had a profile that ended "If you are a fun, nice guy who is in no way creepy shoot me a message."

I responded "I read your profile and I seem to meet all your qualifications except for one...I am a mild to moderatly creepy."

She responded back "Oh that is too bad as this is probably my biggest one but its OK because I'm also into sex before the first date."

I responded back "I was just joking about that I am a man of integrity!."

She said "I wasn't..."

lol I started to question how much i really wanted to meet someone who was willing to have sex so soon but I ended up blowing it accusing her of dating a sworn enemy. She was cute but I am happy with the way it turned out.


Oh and never add a person to your "favorites list". It sends them a message and it can be incredibly offensive to think you are one of someone's favorites.

Good luck!

Mention something in her profile to show you have read it. Put the focus on her.

Changing the intention on your profile might help... .... ...


Intent Bcaesar720 wants to date but nothing serious.


Love is serious stuff

Yes...just be yourself. You don't have to introduce yourself until there are a couple emails goin back and forth...a simple hello...how are you? I really liked ur profile. If your interested in talking to me, hit me back...short, simple, and to the point. If a girl likes your pic & profile, you can pretty much say anything...just no mini novels please.
