Quoting GentlyWoman

I am not disappointed, Kate.  I have indeed seen a few of those and am not surprised that you have as well.  They do come frequently from scammers, and, IMHO, the real members that send them are using some sort of quantity theory.  I don't find it terribly offensive, just impersonal and unmotivated, "ergo" not motivating at all.  

 

Still, I generally only respond to a wink from a paying member if it looks like he may have a cute butt, and so it wouldn't matter if he's a shallow cad :)

 

@ Theo...I saw a recent poll where guys voted 7 to 1 to date the shy versus outgoing girl!  Big interest, though it was pertaining to women met in real life, and I suspect when dating online, we need to be a little more aggressive toward our interest than our typical grocery-store wink wink nod nod.  I think it's important to remember that men can be shy too.



Hmmm, I've sent e-mails and haven't even gotten a "Thanks but No Thanks."  Maybe besides the wink they could come up with the 'No Thanks Wink." That way it doesn't even really comply with real communication, but makes you appear less rude....LOL!

Quoting Theo592000

Bill...you should respond because it might be from one of us shy girls.....a wink means "I like your profile but I'm too scared of rejection to send an email"   :-)

The NOD....do you mean like a head nod? I nod my head to strangers as a way of saying HI...but I LOVE GW's fill in the blanks....lol  You could be onto something......

 



I could have called it the FIB for(fill in blanks) rather than the NOD as in(a wink and a nod); but that surely would have raised some eyebrows. lolol...

Quoting Ekaterina35

GW, sorry to disappoint you, but the "original-one-fits-all-template" emails are already being used. Have you never received one of those? I have. And not just from scammers, but from real members. Feels like someone is trying to send you a message that you are speial, but not really, because you can generally tell if the message was composed for you. That's probably why I do not mind winks at all.

Like MMad LLibs, maybe our lazy button can fill in the blanks randomly for us.

 

Dear ___, 

I lay awake all ___ thinking of you, your ___ smile, and how interested I’d be to ___.  

I ___ed your profile, and my ___ swelled with ___  when I first saw your photos.

How ___ you looked in that ___, with those two ___s on your ___!

 

I can't wait to ___ with you. Write soon.
