I'm curious, so this definitely isn't the first time I've had this happen but there's been plenty of times I'll get a date with a cute/decent looking girl off tinder or any of the sites who may be very cute or even decent but the problem is they don't have much in common or they just don't talk much. Like they'll respond but don't do anything to further the conversation and give one word replies or just flat out generic responses.
I hate being in those situations because I think it puts pressure on me in the sense that it's all up to me to come up with interesting stuff to say all the time or else it'll be quiet and awkward. I just don't understand how some are "interested" but don't make any attempt despite agreeing to a date. Funny thing is they'll claim you're the boring one when they don't do anything but the reality is, they're the boring one. And I try not to talk about myself the whole time, but it's hard not to when they don't say anything and don't even say much when you ask about them.
I usually give the person a chance as sometimes a person is more talkative in person than on the phone, but guys when you're in these situations, do you still try to date the girl and let her open up or do you end it and look for someone else?

It's not unusual for any girl of a certain age to have nothing to say. You learn when you're young to waffle on for hours and do all the talking. Just open your mouth and let your guts spill out is the phrase we use. Girls usually love just listening. It helps if you know how to make things funny and interesting. Eventually they grow comfortable with you and start brightening up. Got to treat them with kids glove the quiet ones though. They're quiet for a reason. They don't trust themselves not to say something daft so patience is the key word. Build them up. Beautiful roses are boring buds at the start until the sun shines on them. Never judge a person harshly. Could be a diamond inside bursting to get out1
