You tell your best stories and try hard to be interesting.
You spend a lot of time and energy wondering what the other person thinks of you.
However, you can still do a lot during those early stages of checking each other out to boost your odds of making it work for you!
Weave them in naturally, conversationally, so that your potential dates does not feel under pressure.Also try not to ask more than one question per email. Try to let your text flow organically and practice the format beforehand if necessary.Literally millions of people (including me) who first met online are now married, and psychologists are starting to examine these relationships. One independent study surveyed almost 20,000 Americans who met their spouse online.If you meet online does that tend to make you more or less compatible? Those of us who met their partners online will find the results encouraging. In fact, people who met online were slightly less likely to divorce and scored slightly higher on marital satisfaction.” (Bohannon, 2013, Online marriage is a happy marriage). scientific support for what many of us have known for years – meeting someone online can work.Here are some ideas on how to approach this situation.
Honestly, normally you should talk about yourself but in this case it seems that the person either struggles to communicate or they are not interested enough (yet).
Now you should not read too much into the answer you get from this, as some people will spot it as a potential trap, others will take it seriously, and most people will try to be casual in their response. If you were asked that question by a complete stranger are you more likely to say “I’m looking for some fun dates and nice times leading to something more potentially.”, or are you more likely to say “I’m looking for a life partner to spend every moment with and share everything with.”The truth is most of us do want a life partner, but saying it seems really desperate and clingy.
You are looking for responses such as “If I meet the right person”, “I’m open to a relationship”, “I’m open to possibilities”, “A long-term relationship is a possibility”, “I’m not looking for anything casual.”.
More like “what do you want to know” when I haven’t asked the questions along those lines.
I generally say I like the same things (I get specific), tell briefly about myself and invite them to email me back. To me, it’s a little odd that their responses are so short but I will say that getting contacts/winks/responses is a good thing.
As I discuss in my free online dating guide, successful online dating relies in part on making great first impressions.
