Match.com’s VIP Mail, and Why You Shouldn’t Use It
You may have noticed a brand-new feature on Match.com today. It’s called “VIP mail.” Basically, it’s a “special” message that you can only send once per week. The idea being that whomever you send it to will be impressed and flattered.
Funny thing is, when you start composing a VIP mail, they show you some tips on the side for writing a great message, and one of those tips, illustrates exactly why you shouldn’t use this feature.
If you have done your homework, and know how to send a great online dating message using conversation nuggets, you won’t have to send a “limited edition” e-mail to her to show her that you’re interested. You’re already way ahead of the pack.
And isn’t it a bit presumptuous to be that interested in a girl? I mean, even if she knows how to write a great online dating profile, you should have enough great prospects that you still want to meet her in person before you’re expressing this much interest.
So, time will tell, but I don’t see this feature as being important in your online dating arsenal. Stick with the fundamentals. Extra bells and whistles like this are just a distraction.
