Frequently Asked Questions about Online Dating
What if nobody responds to my messages?
Unfortunately, many users will not bother to respond to messages from matches who do not fit their criteria, and some receive so many messages that it becomes impossible to respond to every single one. Don't take unanswered messages as a personal rejection. Instead, consider whether you are pursuing matches with compatible desires. Most online dating services allow you to see what other members are seeking in a match, so you can gauge whether they are likely to reciprocate your interest. It's perfectly acceptable to communicate with several matches at once, so don't hesitate to indicate interest in multiple matches simultaneously, increasing your chances of receiving a response. You might also tailor your messages and profile in order to make them more appealing. For example, overly aggressive messages or messages with poor spelling and grammar are less likely to receive a response.
