The slower method is about building trust and rapport.
The best way to do this is to suggest moving away from the dating site to a more personal method of communication.
Online dating is the greatest invention the world has ever seen. You browse profiles, find someone you like and start a conversation.
With any luck they will like you back and you can look forward to a new life of love, romance and passionate lovemaking. In reality, it’s like that game at the fun fair where you have to shoot a row of ducks but nobody ever seems to be able to hit the target.

This isn’t a CV; you aren’t auditioning for anyone, so don’t write it like you are trying to impress. Don’t be afraid of telling people who you are and what you love doing.
