My sent emails XXVI

Unlike the normal format of most of ‘My sent emails‘ posts, where I essentially post a response to something that landed in my inbox, this post is prompted by the discussion going on in the comments of this post where I said:

…I send out quite a few random cold-call emails. Compliments on profiles (as I said, this started things with my last boy), appreciation of photos, comments on posts they made, questions about interesting viewpoints, sometimes simple appreciation for their presence etc. I do it with no expectations, just because I feel like it. Sometimes I get no reply, sometimes a quick exchange, sometimes it leads to a conversation… and sometimes, I hit the jackpot! You never know.

I thought I would throw up an example of just such an email that I sent recently.

Hello CutelyConstructedNick,

I just wanted to drop you a note to say that I am enjoying your posts, and I think your profile is excellent also. Your thoughtful contributions are quite lovely, and in the scheme of things, also very brave. Kudos.

I look forward to what comes next.

    Brave? What makes a comment (or a series of comments) on an online discussion board “very brave”?

    He was making himself vulnerable in his posts without any fear (or maybe with fear, but doing it anyway). I see that as emotional bravery, especially in a forum where there are those who might attack him for it. I admire that quality.

    Well your last try out was not bad. This one is even better.

    And you could sneak the topic of your cooking in there, just casual like.
