Just wondering what kind of message girls prefer as an opening message ? I know "Hello" and "Hi" don't go down too well but then I thought some kind of cheesy chat up line would be ignored too ? Thanks

You will definitely wish to use the SEARCH feature on this Forum.
There are thousands of threads by looking with terms like "First Message" or similar.
Happy reading. It would take you months to read all the content about this topic.

Use this as a message:

Hello (name), I hope you're enjoying your (day of the week). Then find something on her profile to ask question on such as profession, interests, etc.

You may want to go get a profile review.

The Top 3:

"I would like to take you shoe shopping. My treat."
"I would like to take you for a ride on my Harley." (I see a lot more women claiming to enjoy Harley rides than women who claim they don't)
"I would like to take you for a ride in my Ferrari."

Just attach a shirtless pic and you'll get tons of messages
Do NOT do this. It is against site rules.

This is good advice. Head over to the Profile Review Forum.

Haha, ok thanks for the advice, I don't have a Ferrari but I have 2 Mustangs but I'm not the sort of person to start bragging in a description anyway

Thanks again

The message is irrelevant if the profile is bad.
And yours is pretty bad.
I suggest a visit to the profile reviews forum.

NO NO NO, One seat and one seat only on your chopper. It says I am single, I like being single, I ride my bike alone or with my buddies. If you have a nice bike, take a woman for a ride and get in a relationship. The next thing you know, the chopper has been traded for some big touring bike with fat padded seats and saddle bags for her purse and makeup. Which is the equivalent of trading your Vette for a Mini Van. Don't put it on your profile. If she comes to your house, hide the bike in the garage and cover it with camouflage netting.

Ok thanks for the advice, what's bad about my profile ?

To be honest I'm not sure what to write, in person I talk all day long about anything but I struggle with things where I have to write about myself etc

^^ extremely bad.

op, include a dog picture. chicks love dogs. extra points if he's shirtless. if the dog is holding up a fish he just caught, even better.

If you put a baseball cap on both do you double your chances? Maybe matching sweaters,

Introduce yourself, ask some nice questions from reading her profile. Mention shared interests, close with something that super easy to respond to.

Hey there I'm *your name*, really enjoyed reading your profile. Wow, I see your into *hobby or interest* that's really cool, how long have you been doing that? I also really like *other interest*, it's so much fun when I *explain why you like it*. So do you have any big, fun and exciting plans for this weekend?



DO NOT mention how cute/hot/sexy/beautiful she looks, in a first message mentioning looks comes across as creepy.

Best of luck

Offer to take her shopping for brassieres and ask her what her cup size is.

A Mopar guy with 2 Mustangs? Taking a lesson on how cars work? (jk, Mopars had great engineering).

personally, I'd like, "I know Hi and Hello as a first line don't go down to well...but I sure do." to go along with the d1ckic. Put some Christmas tinsel on and paint the tip red with food coloring like a Santa hat, we're approaching the holiday.

seriously, read her profile, make certain you're a good match and not just shooting for the moon, and comment on something in her profile, so it looks like you care about her personality, not the great "cleavage shot on the bed" picture. Make it personal, and you'll have a better chance. or get shot down anyway.

"By the cup full, Ain't we got fun. By the "C" cup ain't we got fun. By the "D" cup ain't we got fun.

Then you break up:

Mammories oh oh Mammories of the way they were.
