I do pretty well with women in person so I don't put much effort into online dating, but I did take the time to make a good profile so I leave it out there. I get maybe 1 or 2 messages a month from women I'd definitely be interested in meeting.
The problem I'm running in to is that women seem to either not know how or not want to have a conversation. Typically what happens is the woman will message me, say hi, maybe give a compliment or ask a question. I'll reply, say hi, make a plaful joke, ask them a thoughtful question expanding on something interesting their profile. She'll respond back with something lame like "IDK, what about you?" or she end the conversation, if you can even call it that, with "oh yeah thats funny haha". Doesn't answer my question, doesn't ask me a question.
Is this typical of online dating? I talk to hot women all the time in person and even if they not interested in me romantically they are usually willing to chat for a few mins even if I just stopped them at the mall. What makes online dating so weird?

I don't know about online dating specifically, but... one thing I realized is people who are very good at socializing and communicating in person tend to suck at it online/in writing, and people who are good in writing/online suck in person (or aren't AS good or AS talkative in person). All of my friends are outgoing in person, but when they email me it's short crap and they halfway respond... it's just offensive and not like how they are in person. I am the opposite--I barely talk in person, but I can write you a book.
Maybe you should try writing women back and asking for their number so you can have a brief phone conversation instead of trying to have written exchanges back and forth.0
