As I have mentioned on here on more than one occasion the first thing a member will see of you will be either:

#A. Your profile photo – if they are running a search.

#B. Your profile photo and the subject line of your message – if you have messaged them.

So your photo and the subject line of your message carry a lot of weight when you are trying to find someone to date.  We have already covered setting up your photo, but here is how to write an attention grabbing headline.  So here are our tips!


#1. Subject lines to avoid


You need to avoid going for the common subject lines as they just will not stand out in the message list in someone’s inbox.

Here are a few examples:

#A. Well I didn’t know what to put! (Far too common!)

#B. Hey…. (anything starting Hey, Hi, How ya going, How ya doing…. Are terrible!)

#C. What’s up (just terrible!)

#D. saw your message on here and I just had to message you (again terrible!)

#E. I’m the one you have been looking for (don’t ever come across over confident)

#F. You are who I have been looking for all my life (don’t use the life has dealt me a bad card line)


#2. Write the message first.


As mentioned in our post about writing messages we suggest that you may want to write the message first so that your subject goes with your message.


#3. Try to use something from their profile.


As mentioned when we discussed writing the initial message, if you can drop hints in the subject that you have read their profile it will increase the chances of your message being read.  Let’s say they talk about being movie mad in their profile.  You drop a few hints that you like movies in your message and your subject line could be “let’s film a hopeless romantic film together?”, or “I don’t want you to be the star of Bridget Jones IV”.  Or for example they may love skiing, so again you spoke about it in your message and then what about the subject being “Should we try a black run together?”, or “Have you skied down a slope hand in hand?”


#4. So what if their profile doesn’t give much away? Then what?


Well we have come up with a few subject lines and first message lines below that should get you started…

#A. Subject: Do not read this!

First line: Unless you’re going to say yes to a date.  Oh dear looks like we need to arrange that now!

#B. Subject: 5 things you didn’t know about me

First line: Well ok I will give you one of them, but the others you will have to get on our first date.  [Then go on to tell them one really interesting/different thing about you]

#C. Subject: I can read your mind

First line: You had to click read!

#D. Subject: !NEPO TSUM UOY

First line: [Anything you want it to be]

#E. Subject: Open and you won’t be disappointed

First line: [Anything you want it to be]

#F. Subject: I love this place……

First line: which serves fantastic Italian food in a very rustic atmosphere! Dinner there would be my treat.

#G. Subject: Knock, Knock…. Who’s there?

First line: A Hopeless romantic?

#H. Subject: I want to grab your attention!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First line: Great now that I have it here is a little bit of information about me.

#I. Subject: You will smile when you read this…

First line: As I smiled when I wrote it.


#5. Don’t ramble!


Don’t make your first message too long, I would suggest a couple of paragraphs in length. One paragraph to tell them something interesting about yourself and one to tell them why you were interested in their profile.
