Basically I suck as much at online dating as I do in the offline world. I struggle to keep conversations going, lack creativity, get nervous and don't reply. I come up with some great openers and that's it. Anyway someone please help me with the below conversation. This mutual match on Tinder is a solid 10.
Me: Hey xxx! Do you like pickles?
Her: I like gherkins
Her: Do you?
Me: Haha yeah! How can you not like gerkins! Snooki style
Her: Snooki style haha
Me: xxx strange name. Is it French? (clearly not French)
Her: No it's Hebrew
Me: I know, just kidding ;p. It;s biblical is it not?
Her: Yeah it's biblical
Me: Yeah...I recently found out that my name has Hebrew origins. And there was me thinking it was Australian haha. (True story)
Me: Your profile says you live 5 miles away. I'm going to take a wild guess....XXX?
Her: XXXX (where I live)
Me: Haha really! I'd never have guessed! I've g2g, my friends outside. Speak soon x
(My friend actually was but of course I flapped it and haven't spoke to her again in like 1 week)
I guess I should have Number Close here at least. Someone please give me a routine to re-initiate this conversation and fill my creative void. I know I can go further with this one and I actually have good game when I get rolling but I rarely have the confidence. I've been on 1 Okcupid date, have a great profile and get loads of likes from fitties but lack GAME right now! Any help?/
