this may be good advice for those who are considered reasonably attractive by societal standards (or perhaps maybe even merely not un-attractive) but there is a segment of the population who is for the most part undateable.the constant rejection inherent in online dating for those of us who are not considered desirable is a huge negative to one’s self esteem.

Here’s the difference: When you write to him first online, you’re making an introduction. You’re not telling him how much you have in common. Just because you get emails from guys does not mean that they are the men that you want.
It’s the equivalent of a guy saying something funny to you at the bar. You’re literally writing a short, funny paragraph designed to break the ice. From here on in, you don’t have to do anything except mirror his efforts. If you’re dissatisfied with the quantity or quality of men in your inbox, the answer is simple: take control of your own love life. Write a cute email to one new guy a day that YOU choose. This appears to be another example of cherry-picking customs to suit our needs.

I’m sure that’s what many people think about me, and that’s certainly what I think about Charly Lester, London-based “blogger, journalist, dating expert,” and Huffington Post contributor. Lester and I’m sure she’s a nice person who feels strongly about what she writes.
And most of my peers do – we tend to agree on 90% of all advice – even if we have different ways of saying things.
We’re literally saving lives out there, just through the power of words.
