So there I was doing some online dating. I sent a great first message, but does anyone else get responses like this?

I send a message with a good question about something they say in their profile to incite a conversation with them. And by some miracle that person actually messages me back.

But their response is just a simple answer to the question I asked them. Just one or two sentences explaining and no follow up questions to continue the conversation.

Do I take from this that they just are not interested? Like they are not interested in a conversation, but they want to tell me what underwater basketweaving is (or whatever their hobby is) just to let me know.
Or are they interested but just as awkward at making/continuing conversations as I probably am?

Should I ask another question? A one sided conversation can be pretty tough. What would you do in this situation?

Am I going about this all wrong? I heard that people want more than just a message saying 'hey'. So I try to make a witty message and usually ask a question about their profile. But with a simple answer message, it becomes difficult to continue the conversation with this dead fish conversationalist.
