1. Never check if women have read your emails.
Checking the sent box is a recipe for disaster. Seeing who has read your emails and not responded will only play games with your mind, and will often have you jumping to paranoid conclusions that aren't necessarily validated. Many women who are online dating either get busy, or take a day or two to respond. Stressing over whether a message was read and not responded to is nothing more than a wasted effort.
2. Never take it personally.
One must always remember that there are millions of men going after women online. It may seem like you are personally being rejected, but if their are fifty other men messaging the same woman that you are that same week, its not exactly personal, its a matter of too much supply. Instead of questioning why you are not receiving responses, think of what you can do to make yourself stand out head and shoulders above the rest of the crowd.
3. Date, date, and date some more.
