So my friend Suzan and I have decided that Fridays are going to be about our online dating communications. Be prepared for a little snark, a lot of sarcasm and no exposing of identities.
I totally give this guy props for telling me stuff about him. I think that’s interesting, but I didn’t reply for two reasons. One, what do you say to that? You talk to him about him, and well, I probably wasn’t feeling that chatty when he initially messaged me because my profile was completely blank with a note saying I was on hiatus. Two, his profile didn’t interest me any more than his message. I didn’t see us having a lot in common, so I passed.
Now, is it just me, or do you assume that if someone does not respond, they’re not interested? Or that they’re afraid to answer you? I generally assume they aren’t interested and move on with my life. I left the dates on the message so I could highlight what this guy did.
Since I obviously didn’t respond to his first message, he replies to it and includes his phone number. Because if I wasn’t up for talking to him on a website where my personal information stays private, texting him is a much better option.
Yeah, I passed both times, and have no intention of replying. I feel like he would be one of those creepy nice boring guys that you can never get rid of. Better to not engage.
One thought on “Flirty Fridays: No reply means…give me your phone number!”
If your profile is blank, then obviously he doesn’t follow instructions well. What’s the point of messaging someone who isn’t looking?
