an opening line......


After reading several blogs around here, I see that many women are frustrated by alot of the emails they get from men...such "hey lets get together and %^&*".....or "lets get together and slam ham".....of course I prefer the old country western song "why don't we get drunk and screw"....lol, just kidding...
While I find these one liners stupid and slightly offensive, and somewhat humorous, it does bring up a good point, which is slightly related to my last post.
What is a good opening line in an email, that does not make a guy sound like a scumbag or jerk?
What in an opening email or message my grab a woman's attention and say...hmm...this guy sounds interesting....maybe I should email or message him back.
I think because their are so many stupid men out their that use these one liners, the rest of us semi-intelligent(maybe)men get grouped together we the morons. I realize it is probably difficult for women to distinguish one from the other also....maybe that is the answer....how is this for an opening line...
Hello..I am not a weirdo, stalker, homicidal maniac, nerd, dork, moron, stupid, unemployed,live with mama, scumbag, jerk, uneducated, suicidal, clingy, obsessed, drug addicted, alcoholic, std carrying, whinny, arrogant male..
How's that for a turn on???
I am sure I have missed some adjectives...
I look forward to hearing some of your thoughts...

I can only speak for myself, but emails that are honest and polite and make me giggle always get an answer. Some mails don't even get opened I just delete them from the title line. As you say there are some scumbags on this site. But there are lots of nice fella's too. Like yourself. xx

I would say that a good opening line would be complimentary and something honest. I guess something like" Hi. I enjoyed your profile photo and think that we might have some things in common. Let's get to know each other and see how it goes". But that is just me. I need to know someone somewhat before I would meet them.

I think if you put in your profile "Hello..I am not a weirdo, stalker, homicidal maniac, nerd, dork, moron, stupid, unemployed,live with mama, scumbag, jerk, uneducated, suicidal, clingy, obsessed, drug addicted, alcoholic, std carrying, whinny, arrogant male.. " that it would be amusing and someone that I would want to speak with evn more. I don't think that it would be a turn on, but it would spark my interest.

You forgot the adjectives that describe what you're wanting, and your status (single, attached and/or married). With all of that, I think you've got everything covered.

possibly attached w/a psycho-ex? Oh boy. You better leave that part off. They'll run from you w/that in an email. I would.
