I know that this is a forum for women, and that I am a man, but I would appreciate a woman's perspective.

I have tried internet dating in the past to no avail. One of the things that I really need to work on is the emails. I know that I need to mention something about their profile, but what else should I put in? Also, I'm a bit stuck for what to put in for the titles.

Any advice greatly appreciated, thanks.

HELLO Thank you for this question. I am shocked at what men send in their first contact. Do NOT start the email about the picture. COME ON how shallow does it sound to start with how much you like their picture. REALLY who cares. Tell her about yourself. Your interest, hobbies and the ones in which you both have common interest pay particular attention too.
Give her a couple stats about yourself. Job, Travel, kids, etc. Tell me how it works out for you.
