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.
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.
