‘Women have a tendency to write too much because we enjoy reading long profiles. Imagine you are doing an icebreaker introduction where you have to sum yourself up briefly.’ Most people want to find someone who can make them laugh, so show people you have a sense of humour.

If someone has taken the time to email you and ask questions, it’s important that you reply with the same care and consideration.
