the waiting game

Postby scott85 » Thu Feb 12, 2015 5:17 pm

so I found a girl I really like on okcupid

she was online at the time, I sent her 2 messages, 2 days ago. she hasn't logged in since

I've been thinking about her all week. having thoughts like maybe she just hasn't logged in, maybe she found someone else, maybe she did it won't work out (might hear from her after v-day)

kinda driving me crazy :)

eeesshh if you are going to try online dating, you are first going to have to relax as many women will flake on you, play games or look nothing like their profile pic, same goes for men...if it shows this woman hasnt been online in 2 days, just give it time..do NOT be too eager and send her 100 messages as that makes u look needy and desperate..best thing to do in terms of online dating is send out many messages to many different girls, this increases your odds and doesnt have you just depending and waiting one one girl to message you back..

u said u found a girl u really like on OKC or that you found attractive?if she is attractive, you bet she has hundreds of other guys messaging her too so keep that in mind..u really have to sell your self with your profile and appear different or charismatic to these women to get their attention..there are guides online to help you out..

I've spent a lot of time on OKC, but I could also easily go a week or more before logging back in. Generally, at least in my experience, I won't respond to someone who
1) hasn't read my profile
2)writes "hi" and that's it
3) writes "Hi, I liked your profile" but says nothing about what's in the profile to move the conversation forward.

I know the OP is almost a year old but perhaps someone might find this useful.

Good luck
