9 Real Reasons Why She’s Stopped Talking To You | Thought Catalog
It really is a nuisance when someone takes light years to respond to a . in the dating game to say anything so she just slowly stops talking to. Same thing though - she just literally stopped responding or messaging. Online or on tinder I can see that they're still active too. Try setting up a date sooner, it may seem like the conversation is going well but eventually. Dating. When a match stops replying. Our resident agony aunt, dating expert Charly She's been online and viewed my profile but still not responded to my last.
I didn't do it very often, but if I waited a week and sent a short "Hey, haven't heard from you in a while so you might not be interested, but just wanted to say I still would like to go out for [date] with you. No, most people who actually want to go out on dates don't need to keep it online for so long.
Unless you also want a pen pal then it doesn't really matter. No, that's the best way to do online dating in my opinion, the first real life meetup is very important for figuring out if you are actually compatible so it needs to be not long after the initial contact in my opinion.
Honestly, I'd say ignore it and concentrate on the half that doesn't flake out. It would be one thing if this was happening a majority of the time, but half the time?
The "epistolary courtship" of online dating doesn't really offer this way of face-saving for either party. Also, you should meet in person sooner, not later. That girl will always have a potential date lined up if she wants. If you're getting multiple replies that don't materialize into dates, chances are you are a backburner option for that girl and she has more interesting people in the queue at the moment.
Also, some people really do just like to flirt for the ego boost. A minority of the women you're exchanging messages with may never intend to meet anybody for an actual date. People would do this all the time in real life if they could. In real life, social conventions force you to acknowledge and talk to people around you as a formality. Now you don't exist to them. No remorse because no visible consequences and thus no guilt or repercussions. No, this is not true. The OKCupid blog has no way to know which women are "most attractive.
It's only natural that women and men with higher overall star ratings get more messages, since both of those facts are caused by more people being interested in them. Oh yeah, you're anonymous, so you can't answer that, but it's important. If you're in NYC, the simple explanation is that any reasonably attractive woman around your age is likely to be receiving so much interest at any given time that she just won't be able to continue every conversation.
You're lucky this only happens "half the time. Focus on the half of women who are continuing the communication; don't dwell on the others! Usually it was when a message dialogue went on too long without any meetup, either because the guy didn't ask or I didn't see a natural opening to.
And in the last instance it was just before I was hiding my account when things went from casual to exclusive with my current boyfriend. I'm pretty sure it's not personal. My only advice is that if you want to meet someone, ask them out on a date within around 3 messages.
Maybe they're flakes, maybe they're not interested, maybe they got back with their boyfriends, maybe they're married, maybe they're just looking for an ego boost, maybe they're busy, maybe they have too many emails, maybe some other guy is a 6'-4" fighter pilot. Nothing you say indicates you're doing anything wrong.
Yes to a couple of them finding someone else - not half. Also - and this is why I used to just disappear - you probably have said something that didn't sit right with the other person.
You not noticing it does not mean it didn't happen. I can give you 10 examples off the top of my head - each time the guy had no idea he'd done it. The few times I tried saying "hey, thanks, but not interested anymore" I was completely attacked.
Got repeated emails calling me a bitch, etc. Again, I can give horrifying examples of how not well guys took that email. Your best bet is to stop having email conversations and meet sooner. By four emails, I'm over it unless there's a reason we can't meet. Reduces the chance of saying something innocuous that turns someone off or pushes a tentative yes to an enough-already no I'd actually be really interested to read the emails to see iwhere it went wrong.
I think there are four very specific things guys do wrong dating online - and that's after the four critical profile mistakes. I can't speak to women's errors, I haven't dated them.
- Effortless Encounters
Happens a lot on okcupid because of the public answers to questions. Amazing how many guys believe in creationism and are against gay marriage or in some other ways their values conflict with mine.
Another thing that happens is I reread something and realize it's fairly subtle code for something I'm not interested in. When there are tons of references to not wanting something serious right away or getting out of a relationship or just wanting to have fun, etc that combined with other things can lead me to believe the guy is actually looking more for casual sex than a relationship.
I actually think asking someone out after 3 or 4 emails is ideal. I'll often drop off communication after a certain point if I feel like the guy is never going to ask me out. The blog did not say if it was Quickmatch only, where profile content would be a confound.

They made it sound like they considered photos only, in isolation of everything else, but they really didn't write anything about their methods so I can only give them the benefit of the doubt that they controlled for profile content somehow. And the basic idea is still probably valid; the most attractive women get bombarded with messages and it probably does have everything to do with how hot they look in their photo. The point at which you're asking them outthree to four emails, is perfect.
Just keep trying and remember people are flakes. I actually got positive responses from women because I was polite enough to send emails saying I wasn't interested or that I'd just met someone I really liked and I don't play the multiple dating game. Basic reply I got was thanks for being so upfront and honest because most guys just quit communicating.
So I'd say this is pretty normal behavior on OKC and most other online dating sites. To answer the post, I think being on the fence has been my biggest reason to disappear the few times I've done it. I think the woman contacted me first in most of those cases, and while I felt flattered enough to respond initially, for a few different reasons I didn't become interested enough to continue.
A couple of people wrote me very long messages that felt like a chore to read and then answer; a couple more were far enough away that a real-life visit seemed unrealistic; and in a couple of cases I'd already suggested meeting for coffee, which was accepted but sort of unenthusiastically, so I didn't bother writing back to confirm a date and time.
The emails have gone on for a while and there's been no concrete suggestion of meeting. I'm not on OKCupid for penpals, sorry.
I'll do the legwork if I'm really crazy about the person. But if I'm on the fence, and they never say anything, I usually just drift off. I've been messaging with a few different people and someone else has made the jump from "person I've exchanged a couple emails with" to "person I am enjoying the crap out of in real life".
Unfortunately, I am wired for monogamy. Even if the other thing isn't technically exclusive, honestly I just don't have the energy to continue pursuing other people if I already have someone in my life who I'm having fun with.
The reason I drift away rather than talking it out is that I think it's important to remember that exchanging a message or two is not a commitment.
And it's more important for me to protect what remains of my fragile sanity than for me to protect the feelings of someone I've never met. But the bottom line is to not take it personally, because people flake out. But this sort of thing bothers me too. I understand ignoring messages from people you've never communicated with, but I also find this sudden drop off from people with whom there was actual back and forth correspondence to be rude and immature.
Better to let someone down than to flake out and leave them wondering. It's laziness on their end, in my opinion. Do you think that's rude? How are two strangers exchanging informal messages or emails meant to wind down the conversation?
9 Real Reasons Why She’s Stopped Talking To You
How would the ideal person on OK Cupid handle this? And when she never replied at all — realizing that our connection was potentially dead in the water. In hindsight, I spent WAY too much time stressing and analyzing my rollercoaster of emotions. Ten years later, I now know that worrying about it was a waste of time.
Unfortunately, there were no clear answers then and there are no clear answers now. There are countless reasons a girl goes MIA. Instead, focus on a plan of action to get the conversation going again.
Give her a day to reply before you send another text Assume that your message was delivered successfully. Or maybe she just became bored of the conversation. Regardless of the reason, hitting her up again within 24 hours almost never yields good results. They decide not to message for multiple days, weeks, or ever again — even if this was the first time she went cold. One reason guys do this is to avoid appearing needy and desperate. I wish the world worked like that.
Hit her up within a few days and follow the ideas below for your message. Your natural inclination may be to double check if she received your message or repeat the same topic. This is especially true if your previous unanswered text was about trying to setup plans. She may have not been comfortable enough or excited enough yet to commit to a date. You pushing again without addressing those feelings through positive emotion, see below will often yield another silent response or no commitment.
Because if she went radio silent after your first invitation, you have to make the second one count. Women can feel awkward about telling a guy off twice. So why blow your chances by rushing it? Sending a couple more playful messages will shift the vibe and make her feel more secure about your connection.
A lot of guys think the remedy is to talk about commonalities and get to know each other on a deeper level. She can do that on a date with you.
You want her to experience positive emotions such as enthusiasm, curiosityplayfulness, passion, and get her laughing her ass off when she reads your texts. There are countless ways to do this: Use more descriptive or emotional language even when talking about normal things. Make everyday conversation more intriguing. Use words that paint a picture or evoke powerful responses.
