This is my very first question ever, so please bear with me if this has been asked before. Why is it so tough to get responses from women on dating sites? I feel that I am quite the eligible bachelor but I can't seem to get responses, or the responses I get are lame/uninspired. Before you begin to ponder my question please know that I've done my homework and I am aware that usually the most desirable of men tend to have luck with dating online. While I don't consider myself to be that awesome, surely I'm above average? Quick about me:
-I am reasonably attractive
-Make a lot more money than other guys in my age group
-Slightly above average height
-Dress well (I'm aware that this is subjective)
-I never send out dry initial messages, I try to entice women with a question based on what's in their profile
So what are your thoughts? Does race place a hand in this? Is it me that is the problem? Should I temper my expectations?
than men, and that perhaps I should make more of an effort to meet people in real life because so few women take online dating seriously.
Most Helpful Girl
I've never done online dating myself but my friend just recently tried. She tried free pages so there may be a difference, but she got 43 mails during the first 24 hours and she didn't even put up a picture yet. However most of the mails were just damn weird, so it may just be kinda to filter out the real ones.
I don't know what you are writing but really don't try too hard. Just introduce yourself and say you found her profile interesting (maybe specifiy what you found interesting) and would love to talk sometimes. Don't use any pick up lines, jokes (unless it come very natural to you), make inappropriate comments, comment on her looks... just keep it simple.
Also look over your proflie again. Do you some 'never evers' . Even with some of the good mails she got, she looked at some of the profiles and some guys said stuff like "I would never have children" "I would never move outside of the city" but well she wants to, so she didn't even respond.1
