Once my friend took my advice, she started getting way more messages. Here's the secret: Mention that you're a champion at Connect Four. After my friend included the tidbit about being awesome at Connect Four, she's gotten tons of messages from guys who jokingly insist they can beat her at the nostalgia-inducing game.
