    Default Does nobody has any sense of humor in those dating sites

    Hi,

    I decided to hit a few girls to practice my skills over text. As I am on experimental stage, I decided to use funny openers and see how they react. I messaged around 10-15 girls and got 6 responses in 12hours. However, 5 out of them were completely negative. Only one girl said that she has never laughed so hard in life and actually complemented me for taking time to draft my initial skills.

    So I customized every message according to the girls profile keeping the base same. Even at the end just to be safe I wrote "Well if you are still not smiling, then I don't think I want a response from you"

    I got responses like

    "You forgot to take your medicine it seems"

    "Seriously, get a life...blocked"

    Yea...you aren't the only one buddy. I think girls look at online dating in a different light than guys do. Also they are bombarded by losers so much they don't even read most of the messages. At least you get responses! No one ever responds to my messages haha

    Guys don't be naive, some of those openers in the forums arn't for online dating. Compliment her on her profile is a great opener. Openers arn't ''Oh I'll say this to start a conversation'' they're are but in online dating, if that's the first thing you message her, it seems wierd.

    I personally would compliment her first, then toss in what ever opener. Example:

    *I see this cute girl's profile, she is very photogenic and enjoys taking pictures of different thing. The pictures would also look nice.*

    I would message her something along the lines of:

    ''Hey, I enjoyed running through your pictures, you seem to be very photogenic. The way you take your pictures gives you this rather artistic style. I'm sure you have a nice sense of style aswell, haha.''

    If I get a response I would then toss in an opener after a bit of chit chat. Like:

    ''Tell me something, when you look at my pictures.. does it make me look like a drug dealer ? *wait for her response* Okay, because I had like three different people telling me that, I honestly don't get it. I mean come on-.. *insert story or w/e*''

    To me, texting is always cheesy to read its like in the third person in my head. That's why I rather do it in person or on the phone. Because such openers can just be wierd to read. In person in the right moment, their fine.

    Good luck.

    Well said ablindman9, my thought was basically they get so many messages everyday, and every girls profile says they reply very selectively. So how do you stand out? You need to come up with something different. I mean every other guy who writes something more than hi, whats up, etc will be complementing her looks.
    Still anyways, very new to the game so learning as I go. My next will be something different.

    New, but you're correct. Since girls do actually see these things everyday. Here's a true fact.

    Girls got their friends to tell them they're good looking, on facebook or in person ALL the time, doesn't matter.

    They also have guys who compliment them on the obvious.
    Nice clothes, looks, hair or material.

    Then they'res the smarter ones (Us) who stand out with their compliments. The compliment on their vibes, senses and what they appreciate. Here's an example to tie it all up.

    Girls complimenting targer: ''You hot, smoking, beautiful .etc''

    Random guy complimenting target: ''I like your hat, that's a nice shirt, hey's what's up, I really like your style.''

    Then their are the ones with actual knowledge (Us, or the guys who are ORIGINAL)

    ''Sorry, but I have to say you have a wonderful sense of style, it really stands out. I like that.''

    Being Original is what's going to get you notice like You_Said_So said. Being Original basicly is doing things people don't usually do. Like the example I gave you. I complimented her on her sense of style, who does that anymore ? I also said I like it at last, showing I appreciate it.

    Its all word games, brother. Good luck.

    Pretty much sums it up, thx ablindman.

    BTW number closed on the girl who gave me a positive response. Will try to built some attraction with text and then ask for a date.

    I'm having the same problem. The humor doesn't seem to translate well over text. The nice thing is that the handful of girls who do reply tend to have a good sense of humor. Regardless it gets tiring to write messages to countless girls so I figure I need a new approach so I'm going to try what ablindman suggested.
