Re: Help! Online Dating Conversation- Having trouble number closing
I just recently noticed this in my own stuff, and now I avoid it like the plague. You HAVE to be careful of when you say "You're welcome", because I have discovered that this response is at times the ultimate way to kill a conversation.
There's another issue, however. Sometimes, "You're welcome" does not kill a conversation. In fact, it doesn't even disrupt the flow of it. So what's the solution to it? You have to be conscience of the flow of the conversation. If it looks like her "Thank You" is about to send the conversation straight into the ground like a kamikaze fighter into your battleship, then you gotta pull that plane up! Ignore the "You're welcome", and continue the conversation on a new tangent.
To answer your question about why you can't number close, I have noticed this re-occurring trend now among all the newbies for quite some time. You pop the question FAR too quickly. Remember, you are on a dating website, and she hardly knows you. She isn't going to just freely give you her number. You gotta invest some time into it, get to know her and have her get to know you, THEN you can try to get her number.
