It happens occasionally that I'll get a positive reaction to my initial message. Usually, the girl will say that I'm funny and then write a line or two. My messages tend to be more on the guage of 1-2 paragraphs or 4-8 lines. But even if I make her laugh again, I still only get a line or two back as a response.
I know women get a lot more messages than men so is this just something guys have to deal with in online dating? Is there a way to captivate an attractive girl's interest to the point where she's writing back equivalent length messages?
