Dear DC Douchebag,
Email subject lines are for the general subject of the email – they are NOT for the actual text of your email. For example, the following is a flagrant abuse of the subject line:
Now, I know this doesn’t seem like such a terrible crime (and in the grand scheme of your DCD tricks – it’s pretty low). However, it’s a flag – a big red, DCD, waving flag that the recipient of said email is warned…they are walking in DCD territory – be alert.
This email says several special things about you, my little DCD friend:
- You are lazy
- You think you’re too important to send actual proper emails with a REAL subject, greeting, message, and closing (not that tricky, I promise)
- You don’t think your potential companion is important enough to even bother with an actual full email – you didn’t even write “hey” in the subject line. C’mon boys, it’s three extra frickin letters and a tap on the return key. (Your potential date is TOTALLY worth a tap on the return key).
- If this is how little effort you’re putting in at the beginning of the “relationship” – sweet Christ – imagine how terrible you will be when you actually feel comfortable!!!
So, buck up – take five extra seconds and write an actual email…OR…and I know this is going to sound crazy, but stick with me. Why don’t you just CALL the girl??? She’ll appreciate it and you’ll avoid this doucher mistake.
Love always – your guide to living a douchebag-free life,
