So there's this girl I have a date with off okcupid this Friday who asked me to text her and she wants to go on a date but she barely initiates conversation and when we do text, we have the most boring, generic conversations ever. Now there's a chance she could just be quiet through texting but talkative in person. I've had that happen before and vice versa.
My point is when you have a date or hang out with a friend even, conversations shouldn't be 100% effort from 1 person and 0% from the other. It's not that I expect the other person to be constantly talking. I'm not terrible with starting a conversation but at the same time if they do nothing to further the conversation and it's quiet until I talk again then I get bored fast. It's painfully annoying because it's like I feel like I have to come up with a script of things to say each time I see them as if I'm interviewing them. I've has this happen before where a girl well say let's go on a date but then when we talk about other things she'll be like right, haha or yeah and those are literally the only 3 words coming out of their mouth.
If someone's like this, how do you handle it? Do you ask them why they don't talk much? Sometimes they could just not he interested but then they could also just be very shy. It's hard to tell.

Your the guy. she's just along for the ride. Everything depends on you to make the date and conversation interesting. She just like other women expect the guy to do all the work. If you don't or she's bored, you stop hearing from her and she talks to someone else. This has been my experience. But maybe I'm dating the wrong women and maybe you are too.0
