Dating no reply
I was messaging this girl on for about a week, we exchanged numbers, she told me to give her a call. We analyzed over 500,000 first contacts on our dating site, Ok Cupid.I was SUPER hesitant about doing online dating because of the stigma, at the time, of online dating. I was new to San Diego, didn’t know anyone, and thought WHY NOT. Fast forward to 2 months after I moved to San Diego, I was messaging with this girl on Plenty of Fish, she gave me her number, and asked me to call her so we could have a conversation on the phone first. HOW ABOUT IF I OFFERED TO PICK HER UP FOR THE DATE? Females, appropriately so, should be hesitant and error on the side of caution/safety when meeting guys online.The perception of online dating at that time, was that it was for losers who couldn’t find people in real life. I know it’s hard to believe now, because people sign up for 3 stupid dating apps a day, but back in 2006, it was like “Are you seriously doing online dating? Had a great conversation, we coordinated a date for the next week, and I offered to pick her up, to which she accepted. No, because she would probably think I’m a serial killer who wants to isolate her and chop her up into a million pieces. I miss the days when it was okay for me to call a girl before the first date, where I could offer to pick her up, and take her to a nice place for dinner.Great question , it’s actually the reason I started smashing the keyboard to write this blog tonight.
And as I say this, people are reading this, and they’re saying “But Steven, that’s just how it works, get over it.”, and you’re right, it is.I was actually called out, fairly, with one of my own blogs a few months ago with a girl I went on two dates with.1.) I need to follow my own advice better 2.) Don’t date girls that know about this blog, it may come back in your face with a link to a blog about how not to be a douchebag when online dating 3.) Stop being so charming, modest, funny, strong, smart and modest on the first dates.You might think that words like are nice things to say to someone, but no one wants to hear them.
