A good image should make them want to click on the message because they're curious.For example:(The nuances of good profile photos are beyond this message ...You might as well find out right away if your senses of humor* line up.*Bonus advice: Please don't just write "I have a good sense of humor" and expect everyone to believe you. It's good to express enthusiasm for shared interests, but don't make them up, and don't be weird about it.

Spark curiosity with the first few lines of your email.
Just like in Gmail, many dating sites show a preview of your message in the inbox.
If we wanted to read your profile, we'd have gone to it.
An online dating message is not the same (thank GOD) as a job application.
