Men do this too! I have experienced this many times with guys.
People in general are flakey now a days. Things move fast. One minute they are interested in you, the next they have already met someone else. Plus a lot of people are still weary of online dating and stuff like that. So they may have a profile, but may never meet anyone from it.
Some women will use the excuse that they have a boyfriend, because some guys honestly won't leave them a lone if they say they are not interested. Some guys will continue to harass them non stop. I had a guy once who I told him I wasn't interested in him (because he was saying some pretty creepy things to me), and then he continued to message me for 2 YEARS!
I never answered any of the messages, but he would say things like "This is the anniversary of when we first spoke", "What would we be doing right now if we were together?". Stuff like that, really freaked me out!
if a woman doesn't reply to you, it's because you don't stand out.
when i dated online, i got tons of messages... but i only replied to a handful of them and had actual conversations with only two (one of whom is now my boyfriend).
what made his message stand out? he took the time to write a proper message and didn't abuse the English language; he also pointed out some of the things we had in common, which showed that he actually read my profile and cared about getting to know me as a person.
if she's leading you on/really has a boyfriend/is a jerk, she's not worth dating anyway. that said, lying about a boyfriend is a really good way to fend off unwanted advances from creepy types.
We're picky and we have options. I put a profile on a dating site this year, and I got over 200 guys trying to communicate with me in the first few days. I could never respond to all those messages. I ended up communicating with only three guys out of all those who contacted me.
Women do not reply to guys who do not attract them physically or do not seem a good match for them, the same reason why men do not reply to us. For ex., I am looking for a Latino taller than 5'9", because I am obsessed by Latinos and I love dancing salsa, bachata and reggaeton. I lived 3 years in Latin America. My ex and all my recent boyfriends were Latinos. I have a lot in common with them culturally as well, apart from the strong physical attraction. So, if a white guy who's 5'6 with a beard or bald (not my type) sends me a message, I will not waste his time or mine. I do not reply.
Either they have tons of guys like you already blowing up their inbox, or you didn't put enough detail in your first message for them to want to reply to you, they're not interested in you, or they're a fake profile.
If they lie about having a boyfriend, it's probably because they want to reject you but not hurt your feelings. If they're being mean... there could be a number of reasons. It depends on the circumstances.
Different reasons all the time... they may have changed their mind about whether or not they find the person attractive, the conversation might have died, they might be really into someone else at the time, he might be being a total perv, he might be being a jerk, they might have just swiped right to get a higher number of matches, they may have gotten Tinder for a confidence boost... as to why some girls lie about having a bf-it's bc they're assholes. I would never do that. Why be mean to a random guy? I wouldn't unless he was being a prick first. I'm nice to people even if they're rude unless I feel that they've gone way beyond being a jackass
Men always complain about chicks never matching with them or ignoring them, and ladies always complain about getting swamped by guys and having dudes send dick pics and stuff. Why can't it just be 50/50 haha
They're probally have a lot of guys like you already messaging them so that's why they don't respond. Them lying about having a boyfriend is just them trying to reject you but they don't want to be mean. Them actually being mean could be a lot of different reasons.
I think a lot of women on tinder at least, like the idea of a guy swiping right for her and it boosts her confidence. Tinder.. not quite a dating site which is probably why you get mixed results conversation wise. Generally it is so easy to lie and say all this shit over the internet because you aren't face to face with that person. That's what i think at least
