I’ve been on Match for a couple weeks. And from my first week, it’s gotten better. I think it’s because they verified I was real? Maybe? But I’m getting more responses than I was.
I think the only thing that is somewhat baffling is almost all the guys I’m talking to (including HS dude) is they want to share about themselves. And share more about themselves. Which isn’t bad, but do you want to know anything about me? I try to put tidbits into messages and there is never elaborations or questions about learning anything about myself.
So dudes who are online dating, ask about the girl. You like her, yes? Then ask about her life or something that caught your eye! Don’t make it about you and don’t let her make it about herself. It’s a balance act. Share something about you, expand and have a discussion, but move onto something about her.
