How To Answer Online Dating Personals Correctly

The current trend, online dating. We can all find online dating pretty easily with the help of big dating sites like simplyclicked,, friendfinder, etc. The fact that you can join as many as you want does not hit the point. The point of being successful in attracting your targets.

Generally, men will make the move to answer personal ads and women put up and select from a long list of responses. The only way for men to be successful in attracting a girl is by examples. Earlier, I wrote a 3 part series, showcasing examples taken from Lorina about how one can answer online personals wrongly.

Today, I have gathered good examples for guys on how to answer online dating personals correctly. Try out some of the examples. Modify the names a bit and reuse them. See the difference. =)

  1. Yes.. witty and charming at the same time.. that’s the way
  2. If you will call me Mon Cher ( sp? ) I will do all your biddings. I used to be 7ft tall, however my evil twin brother, the disfollically challenged (hairy ) one, he chopped me off at the thighs, and thank god doctors were creative. Now, I am a very normal looking 5’8. Much to my parents dismay.

    My castle, unfortunately, due to downsizing it has become an apartment, but even the apartment is OLD. There are different Faucets for hot and cold water. Not different knobs, different Faucets. I have a thing for Christina Ricci… does that count?? I can Salsa, Merenge, and I am sure, that with a little help Tango and Waltz and Ballroom are just around the corner. Could you be that coach? Okay, so there is alot to say here, however, if you reply, I have a better wit and pictures I can send. Interested so far? I hope so because your picture was fantastic, Love the Boa.

    Until we chat….. Gregory

  3. This guy shows appreciation towards her humor, doesn’t mention where he works, how tall he is, how old he is, or what he looks like. Sounds cool and calm and not desperate.
  4. I’m always interested in people who strike me as potentially wackier than myself, as I find that to be a rare situation…… hey, I never said I was modest… *lol*

    anyway, if you be interested in learning more about the exciting and adventurous nuances of me, then please…. order now! We’ll even throw in a free set of Ginsu Knives…. =)

    ok…. I’m too tired right now to even realize if I’m funny or not, so I’m gonna go get some sleep….. yes, it’s only midnight, but some of us has been slightly sleep deficient lately…..

    anyway, nice pseudo-chattin with ya…. hope to hear back from you sometime….. oh yeah – I’d be curious as to where exactly you’re located…. I just moved to (name of town located north of Philadelphia) about a month ago, and seeing as how you’re north of Philly….. well, it all starts adding up to something suspicious, if you ask me….. =P

    Take care, Jonn (yep, J-O-N-N… nobody ever gets it right….)

    by the way, I would attach a photo, but I’m too lazy to do so right now (plus it looks like I’d hafta come up with some kinda profile thingie… and I don’t wanna hafta deal with legions of adoring females…. *lol*)…. however, if ya email me back at my normal email address, I’ll be happy to oblige then…. okeley-doakeley?

  5. Notice how this ad doesn’t sound desperate at all.
  6. Hi.

    We should meet.

    I like long walks on the beach in the moonlight.

    All right, you probably didn’t think that was very funny.

    I stumbled across your ad and I see that we have quite a bit in common. Punk, flea markets, retro-tv, etc. Unfortunately, the one thing we don’t have in common is the city we live in. I’m in Rochester. Upstate New York. I know what you’re thinking… “Blecch! Upstate?!” Trust me, it’s not as bad as you might think. Or maybe it is. I don’t know. Well, if you’d care to respond… you know what to do. I’ve got an ad as well. I’ll send it along with this message. It should also have a photograph of me.

    Oh, I almost forgot. I’m in a punk band and I’m making our website. If you want to check it out for kicks: The Runs


  7. Short, funny, to the point.
  8. And so, you may ask yourself, who is this man, who felt compelled to respond to my ad?

    Well, I’m a SWM, 6’1″, 180 lbs, and 28 years old. Never been married, never had kids, don’t drink, don’t smoke. Don’t watch tv. I like to shoot pool (I’m very good), rollerblade (I suck) and go to school. Working on a master’s degree, then a PHD, in Electrical Engineering.

    I work full time as an engineer, at a sponge factory. (Really. I am not making this up. I mean, who would ever claim that?)

    I have a wonderfully fulfilling existence, with the exception of miss right, who seems to elude me at every step. (Perhaps she has some type of portable cloaking device, I’m not sure)

    I am intelligent, goal-oriented, motivated, attractive (sorry, I don’t have a picture online, I will try to get one if you like) and hilarious

    I would like a chance to e-mail back and forth a bit, and see what you are like.

  9. Lorina was an Austin Powers fan and so this email appealed to her taste. Though it may sound a bit off to others, talking about stuff related to what she likes will help build better first impressions.
  10. Alas, I’m not bald. And I don’t have sharks with lasers on their head.

    But I do have an evil empire which spans the globe, bringing terror to countless millions. Or I will soon… when I get off of my butt and build it. So.

    Your description definitely stands out from the countless “tired of the bar scene, looking for the right man” variety. If it conveys anything about your personality, then you’d probably get along well with my little group of weirdos. We’re post-college quasi-nerds, floundering in the intellectual wasteland of the Real World, facing the horrific realization that it’s much harder to meet interesting people when you aren’t in a place packed with bright, outgoing people around your age. So, if you are looking for other oddballs to goof around with (or help conquer the world), let me know.

  11. Long but this is everything an ad response should be. Realistic and intelligent at the same time.
  12. HI there!! Lemme tell you right off that bat that you have no idea how sick I was of seeing all kinds of adds from all over the place that would say stuff like “Moonlight walks on the beach”, “Romantic Dinners by Candlelight” and all that kinda stuff.

    Don’t get me wrong though. I’m not saying that I’m not romantic either. Just like you said. Romantic stuff like that just happens. It’s not something that you can really plan on. I know that I’ve learned from my own experiances that different things are more romantic with different people. Shoot….I’ve had a good time just sitting with a girl on my patio looking out over the snowfall. That doesn’t mean that I’m going to want to do that with every girl that I date. Know what I mean? I think that you follow me.

    Anyhow….now that you got me rambling (just excited to find someone that thinks like me hehehehe). I’m a smart, realistic kinda guy. Most of the people that know me tell me that I tend to “grow” on them. I think they mean that in a good way, but it makes me feel like I’m some kinda fungus. If your looking for a very sexy, hot guy that’s going to tell you everything that you want to hear just so he can get you in bed….I’m not the guy your looking for. Don’t think that I’m ugly now either cause I’m not…trust me. I can be brutaly honest when I think it’s neccesary. That may sound like a bad thing, but it’s not. I just like to express my feelings about someone. You know that when I compliment you or tell you something that makes you feel good, it’s coming from the heart and I’m not just talking out my ass so that I could get in good with the girl.

    I’m very much a fun loving guy. I like to go out on the weekends to see bands at Brownies Plymouth or Reeds Blue Bell and places like that. If I’m not at a club on the weekends I usually go to a local bar or some other hang out spot to meet with all my buddies. I love shooting pool, playing/watching hockey and music.

    I in no way ever get all sexual when I talk to a girl unless it’s someone that I’ve known for a long time and we both know that it’s all in fun and aren’t going to get offended by it. I do LOVE a girl with a sense of humor. I have a good sense of humor myself and the more warped the better. My favorite comedy show is Uprights Citizen Brigade and favorite web page is and (have to go there if you never have) as well as

    I know that you fit my bill, I don’t know if I fit yours though, but that’s ok cause it’s good to see that there are girls out there like you. Vital Stats (hehehe): 25 male, 6’0″, 210lbs, black hair, brown eyes. Live near Norristown (thought not actually in it). I work for an executive office suite in Wayne, PA. Here is the only real difference that I’ve found between us thus far…I go to the gym and lift weights about 4 times a week and I like to eat relativly healthy, though I’m no health nut….trust me. I just like good food (seafood, veggies, etc)

    Don’t know what else to say right now. I really hope that you get this email and that I hear back from you.
