So I reactivated my account on okcupid, and I usually get a lot of messages some creepy some flattering but no one I am really interested in. However, (and I find that this usually happens in person too) I found someone interesting who I have common interests with, and normally I wouldn't make the first move because in the past it bit me in the ass, but I did it anyways. I just said hi my name is so and so and I am also interested in legal services too and work in it too. He has been online recently, checked my profile and didn't respond. What am I doing wrong? I'm such an awkward penguin.

There are women I don't respond to because I'm not interested or their messages don't have a lead. Asking Q's is a great way to keep things open. Simply messaging and then ending with a Q and if he responds, respond but end with a Q. If you end a conversation with no lead you have a high chance of blowing your chances. It was an OK message... sorta... better than "hi."
He could have also simply thought you two were not a match. Don't let it get to you. Guys literally have to message 20+ girls just to get one response sometimes.0
