When you decide to email a man, keep the email brief and don't overthink it. Here's an example:

Hey IronMan95,

I enjoyed reading your profile. It's pretty impressive that you've done two Ironman triathlons  which ones have you done? I'm a runner and have ran a few marathons … Anyway, let me know if you'e interested in talking more. Have a good one!


This email is polite, short and to the point but still casual and light. She attempts to connect with him based on their mutual enjoyment of endurance sports, while also squeezing in a compliment, a question that can generate more conversation and a request to chat. You'll also notice there is no flirting and no chasing. She's simply starting a conversation that may turn into him asking her out.
