Beth was 76 when she lost her husband of half a century.
By the time she’s done reading it, she’s learned that you are adventurous, you’re in good enough physical condition to windsurf, you love to travel, and you’re financially able to swing a fabulous getaway – all without having to write “I love to travel” or “I’m adventurous, physically fit, and financially stable”.
If you fail to do either of those two things, she’s instantly moving on to the next guy.
But if she likes what she’s seeing, she’ll keep reading – and more importantly, she’ll be way more likely to respond to your message.
If you just write “I’m a general contractor” and leave it at that, you’re missing an opportunity to forge that connection.
And remember, the more positive feelings you can inspire, the higher the likelihood of her saying “yes” to a date.
Having high expectations exudes confidence, and confidence is an attractive trait.
