I recently went back OD and have had no luck, loads of guys I'm just not interested in about. I get a message over the weekend from someone who I like the look of, however since then we've been exchanging messages but his are of the 'have a nice day' and 'morning' type, no effort to get to know me and zero mention of meeting up. I've received the 'hope you've had a good day' message this afternoon but haven't bothered to reply...his profile say he's seeking a relationship but this aimless chit chat is pointless right, or should I give it more time? I'm getting so bored once again of the OD thing.
Good for you! I've done OLD in the past and found it better to be the date instigator rather than waiting for a request. Meeting up swiftly is a good idea - weeks of messages is just a big waste of time IMHO
I agree, then I think maybe they'll be better in person! That's the bummer with online, at least meeting in real life you know instantly if there is attraction, how you get on in a conversation etc, so much easier.
When I did OD I did a survey out of frustration and asked everyone who had contacted me and a few random ones whether they had any intentions of meeting or used od as a method of virtual interaction. Only 2 out of about 40 said their intention was to meet. Most used words like 'Im happy to have fun on here' 'it's nice chatting on here'. My conclusion was v few men on OD want to meet. I didn't ask why they only liked chatting as it made no difference to the outcome.
Od for over 1 week now and the chit chat on text is so annoying. Met up with one guy who hasn't bothered arrange another date, so I'm chit chatting wit other guys, but its frustrating and seems pointless.
Well, he's offered me his number and I have suggested we speak on the phone, I'm not just going to transfer our one sentence chats to text, I really don't have the time for flaffing about - so will see if he 1) agrees to chat and 2) is any better on the phone.
