What Can I Say to Get a Reply E-mail?

22. December 2009 by Daniel 0 Comments

A frustration we sometimes hear from gentlemen is that a particular Russian lady has not replied to their messages. There is a number of reasons why a lady might not reply right away – keep in mind that the ladies each have their own lives and responsibilities to attend to.


While we can’t guarantee that a lady will reply, there are a few things you can do to increase the likelihood that your e-mail will catch her eye when she does come online. Here are just a few pointers.


Keep it Short and Sweet

If you send a Russian lady a block of seemingly endless text as your first message, she is not likely to read the whole thing and she is even less likely to reply to it. Don’t write a novel in your first message. Keep it simple by telling her you like her and would like to get to know more about her. Perhaps make a comment on a mutual interest you both share. Diving into details too early won’t leave much to be desired.


Stay Honest

It can be tempting to embellish a few details here and there when talking about yourself in an online forum. Some gentlemen fudge their height, weight, or age. Some may make embellishments about what they do for a living. Keep in mind that your Russian bride is going to like you for who you are and not for something you claim to be. This being the case, honesty really is always the best policy. It doesn’t mean that you necessarily have to divulge all of your deepest secrets to a lady. But being honest about who you are will save you from getting caught in a lie.


Be Polite

Always remember to put your best face forward in an online forum. This goes as much for the words you type as it does for any images you post. Being a gentleman will get you far, especially with Russian women, who value a chivalrous man. Being forceful or vulgar, in contrast, will make a lady lose interest in you very quickly.


Remember to take things slow. Ask her about her life and things that interest her. Compliment her. As things progress and you get to know each other, you can then take the conversation to a more informal level.


Don’t Jump to Conclusions

It is particularly easy when corresponding with a foreign lady to misinterpret her words or actions. Occasionally, gentlemen will relate concerns to us about something a lady said to them online that seemed unusual in one way or another. More often than not, these incidents are the result of cultural misunderstandings or turns of phrase that become skewed in translation. It is best to try to figure out for yourself what it is that a lady is trying to say before jumping to conclusions. If you are not sure, ask her and give her a chance to explain.


Follow these basic guidelines and your chances of getting a reply and hitting it off with a Russian lady will be much improved.
