Being new to the online dating community I didn’t really know what to expect.We chose a playful yet hilarious headline that says to see what kind of responses I would get.So here is my experience and what I have noticed in the POF (Plenty of Fish) world.The guys pursue the women a lot more aggressively than the women pursue the men.Girls get swamped with messages, with an average of 17 messages a day, that means if you are a guy who is legitimately interested in a girl you need to have a snazzy subject line in order to not get scanned over and deleted. ” is just not going to cut it in the online dating world, nor would it really go over well via Facebook or Twitter.Also those bathroom pictures of all those guys with washboard abs are an instant turn off (insert 14 year old flashbacks to the good ol’ Nexopia days here.) This picture tells me (and the other girls) nothing more than that the guy is probably insecure and need a body shot in order to gain my attention.
Now we ain’t saying that all guys are fuckboys but the majority who roam the online dating apps can deffo be classified as fuckboys.
That this guy has really nothing more to offer than the external.
Women are emotional creatures, yeah we all like something to look at but we rather have someone who we can relate to and feel connected to on emotional level.
Plus its far more intriguing to not know what’s going on under that shirt, adds a little more mystery. It’s amazing how many guys would apologize for complimenting me – “Sorry but I have to tell you that you have an amazing smile.” Apologizing screams insecure and if you are comfortable with who you are you will stick by what you say and not be sorry about it.
If a girl doesn’t respond back to you right away, take a chill pill, and don’t keep sending the same message over and over. When it comes to a girl not messaging you back it’s one of two things: One- she isn’t interested or two- she is busy and hasn’t gotten around to responding.
