THINK more about being helpful rather than defeatist I'd consider a one-word response not even worth sending.
If not interested, I'd expect no message or some version of "thanks but no thanks"; if interested, I'd expect something of substance.
In answer to your question I do ask some questions which are clearly being ignored but at the end of the message I finish it off with something funny or nice like a compliment so I don't come across like I want to know everything about them all in one message.
can you copy and paste conversations in these forums or not, due to privacy issues, because then you could see for yourself how dull they are and how I am making an effort."HOW IS ANY OF THAT HELPFUL OR CONSTRUCTIVE ADVICE ON HOW TO RESOLVE THE SITUATION."The Tuff Guy's advice was exceedingly helpful, if you would just do it: 1) ask for digits, 2) ask them why they sent one word replies. I prefer not to wallow in speculation when empirical tests are available. OP...a woman is only replying with monosyllabic responses, then there are a couple possible reasons.1-they have nothing to say, because they have nothing to offer intellectually2-they are just replying to be polite3-they have someone they are already chatting heavily with, and want to keep you on a back burner in case that doesnt pan out4-they are not really looking to meet anyone, just testing the waters so to speak You could try shortening up your replies and only asking a question.
They are still replying so NO i won't move on, I am not asking advice on what to do next I am looking for an explanation as to why they think one word answers is ok.
One of my recent messages just upgraded to a couple of sentences so there is progress, I am just saying what is the point in one word sentences?
I want compatibility and someone who I find interesting enough to be with not a doorknob.
I could try it I suppose but I am a bit skeptical about such a forward approach All joking and razing aside. I personally wouldn't let a conversation go more then 5-6 exchanges without asking for the number as long as things have been going well.
Hello So I am talking to a couple of girls FINALLY I managed to get a few replies so I am thankful of that atleast.Are you asking them questions or just making statements?Can't really expect something like "haha" or "cool" in response to a question.Now I should be taking this as a massive hint that they are not interested but I getting tired of just giving up, I want to make an effort and let my personality shine through and actually date somebody off here for once. Flipper, your next move is, "so let's talk on the phone, what's your phone number? "Why don't you ask *them* instead of demanding speculation? if they wasn't interested in the slightest would they even reply?I know they are not completely as dull as dishwater because there profiles are actually very nice and entertaining to read hence me sending them a message. Please people stop with the easy to write bullsh*t of move on, not interested because like I SAID I'm fed up of giving up.
