It seems that with dating sites and social media being so prevalent, finding someone has become even harder. It's so easy to "meet" lots of people, and talk to them all at the same time. Everyone seems to think that the next one that comes along is going to be better than the 10 they're already talking to. How do you keep someone interested when you're one of many? My title asks about keeping a guy interested, but I'm sure girls probably do the same thing.

With guys you basically:
Talk about things both have in common
Talk about trying new things
Don't down him
Hear him out and BY GOD ASK HIM QUESTIONS AS IF IT WAS A NEWS PRESS CONFERENCE.
Don't have do most of the talking text bk " ok, I guess, etc" that's a boring person.
Make sure you understand what your doing and make clear. What I mean is dudes on auto want you. Be lust of actual relationship by default. Make sure make clear that your just want to be friends until you feel something may spark from it.
Lastly try not over think things, read too much into it or bring your insecurities to the table that's a turn off, that's not cool, and we'll get uninterested quickly.7

Seriously though, what has dating truly come to when you can't even keep someone's attention? This is the thing that really frustrates me the most.
The only thing you can do is try to talk with them about stuff you are passionate about. I find people like passionate people. I know I do. Even if I don't have an interest in the subject, hearing their passion for it always makes me happy.
I also think that showing interest helps. If you show a guy you like him, I think he will be more likely to like you back. I don't think playing games is really the way to win. Maybe not be incredibly needy, but don't give in to everything either. Try to strike a balance but with each interaction be positive. If that makes any sense.
When you meet, make it memorable. I find most people will meet at the same places. In my city there is a park where people meet all the time. That gets boring, especially if you have been online dating for a long time. Try to do something unique. That will peak their interest and make you stand out :)3
