You’ve got mail (on Wed, Fri, Sat, and Sun)

Improving your online dating strategy and results may be a simple as waiting until the right time to press send.

Online dating outsourcing service Virtual Dating Assistant analyzed more than 2,500 messages that they sent for their clients and found that messages sent on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday had around a 50% lower response rate than messages sent on the other four days of the week.

The online dating experts say that timing is everything — while emails sent on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays had twice as many responses, they sent emails:

  • after business hours on Wednesdays
  • late in the afternoon on Fridays, when people are least busy at work

And they never, ever send emails on Friday evening, because the last thing you want people to think is that you’re alone and at home on a Friday night with nothing better to do than troll online.
