    Angry The classic "Hey"

    I made an account just for this question (and for the fact that this PUA site has the best community I've ever seen).

    So I'm using POF, and sorry if this has been brought up a lot (I'm new to the site) but what the hell am I supposed to do with all of these "heys?" Usually, I ignore them, but today, I pretty attractive girl contacted me with that one classic word.

    Her: "Hey"
    Me: "I prefer grass..."
    Her: "What?"

    It's killin me.

    So are the women that respond that way really dumb or just bored / lazy. Also, how do I go about responding from this? Should I just give her brain time to figure it out, am I being too lame lol, or what? My profile is decent and I'm no Keanu Reeves but I'm decently attractive. I'm new to the whole online dating thing so any help would be appreciated. I've read a few things on this site before signing up, so I have the profile down and a good header / photos that get attention, I'm just bad at responding to the one liners when they contact me first.

    Default Re: The classic "Hey"

    Women think that you should chase them. That's how the game is typically played and that's what they expect. So when a woman messages you it's an ioi, but it's not going to open the conversation up.

    Solution? If a HB you're interested in sends you a message like "Hey" to start the conversation, you send her basically an opener. Something that will break the ice and get things moving along.

    You're already in a better position than if you had sent her a cold opener because she has sent you a message. Just getting a message from a HB in the online world is a major IOI.

    It took me a second, but when I figured it out, I laughed pretty hard at your response to hey. It's witty.

    I'm on POF as well, much better than okcupid. Glad I upgraded. Anyway, I usually tease them a little with things like hey or hows it going, I'll say something like "Is that the best opener you have? :-p" and then introduce myself. Or if she just opens with "hows it going" I'll reply like "I've been told I'm pretty darn good."
