I'm on dating sites and I've noticed that most guys seem to lose interest when I tell them what I study. We'll write back and forth and things seem fine and then they ask me what I study and when I tell them they stop replying or take longer to reply between messages and makes no effort to continue the conversation so it eventually dies out. I study IT, is it really that bad?
It has a nerdy ring to it (some guys won't like that, others will love it), but if they already know what you look like and have talked to you it shouldn't turn them off just like that. Maybe they're bored with the conversation.
