gotta love the tried and true argument of "this isn't a dating site." Coffee shops aren't dating sites, but people meet their SO's there all the time. Gyms aren't dating sites, yet people meet their SO's there all the time. Star Trek conventions aren't dating sites, but people meet their SO's there all the time. The bus stop where you see the same girl every morning isn't a dating site, but people meet up that way all the time. My point being this: a "dating site" is really anywhere where two people can meet and interact. There aren't a whole lot of prerequisites in terms of the venue in which two people meet, so i disagree with all the people using that as an argument for why those girls don't respond to you.
In my opinion, they probably followed you because they were expecting to follow you back. Guys get a lot of hate for being harassing/perverted and what not on here and elsewhere, and some of it is justified. But lets not forget women too have a vice, and that's attention. GaG isn't a whole lot different from facebook, in which you'll see girls with like a 1000 friends, when in reality they may actually only have real interactions with like 12 of them. It just looks good to have a lot of followers. That being said, if you only messaged them yesterday, give it a few more days before making a call one way or the other
some people here follow you because they like your opinions, photos or personality, not necessarily because they wanna get to know u. not that u aren't great, but not everyone wants to make that effort.
With me, I sometimes forget to check my messages and I'm not online for very long amounts of time usually. I try to get back as quickly as possible, but sometimes it takes a while. Also, if I don't refresh my browser I do not receive notifications.
I have done that. When they follow you, it means they would like to read your posts in future, but it doesn't mean that thy wpuld like to be friends with you necesaarily. Its like reading an author's work, but no intention of befriending them.
Just because they follow you doesn't mean they want you to start pming them without any reason. They may simply like what you posts and whatnot and it's not always about being attracted to you and what not. Perhaps you need to start a conversation better rather than just say hi or hello. Have some content to it man.
