I was trying to be genuine as that what every girl seems to want but i might just lie and unleash my true personality on the second date.
You have to bear in mind that an "average" looking woman will get several emails a day, so you're going to have to find some way of standing out if you're going to get noticed. Also, from what I've been told, women get so many emails that they don't even bother opening half of them. I tended to restrict my emails to women who'd viewed my profile winked/expressed-an-interest. Made it easier to use a genuine-sounding, disarming opening gambit, even if it was largely copied-and-pasted, something along the lines of:
"Hey, I noticed you'd looked at my profile but didn't send a message... So you're either the type of person that's not comfortable sending messages to strange men on the internet, or, you found my pics totally repulsive... etc, etc."
My profile was a very sarcastic dissection of the weird and wonderful world of dating that hinted at a few disastrous dates and contained plenty of observations of the process that gave women plenty of scope to send a message without having to struggle for something to say. It's a tricky tactic - you know that you're going to alienate a large proportion of the women who don't "get" the humour, but I figured that I'd not want to date someone who didn't have a sarcastic streak!
You bought a mirror
No, I found a perfect 10 a few months ago... I'm still waiting for someone to tell me it's some sort of wind-up! (Match Dot Com if you're wondering...)
Likes fat-bottomed girls, comfy saddles and wet-wipes.
