This would normally seem like an easy answer to me, I would just say, it was alright, I worked the entire Christmas day. Except that when ever I give any type of straight forward response like that, the girl just stopped responding in the past. I should note that I have never had much success talking with women, but especially in a dating apps. In this situation I don't know if just being straight forward sounds boring or if it sounds depressing. That isn't my intention, but it's the way I think I must come across since I haven't had any success.
Also in this case she also asked what my favorite present was, except again I won't be seeing any family members for another week. So I haven't exchanged any presents.
I want to send this girl a response that's honest but also intriguing, so that she wants to talk further and eventually meet.
