No Reply? Here's Why

Here's a post from OnSugar blog Rantings of a Single Girl.

I know when it comes to online dating, my techniques aren't perfect. I'm sure I do a lot of things that are "wrong" in the online dating world. One thing I have never done and will never do is send a message that you can't make sense of.

What am I talking about? Messages like: "hey." or "r u married?" or "u have a nice smile. so waz up?" I think that's the biggest complaint I hear from women in the online dating world. Nothing turns us off faster than to get incomplete and hard-to-comprehend messages.

Not only are these messages hard to reply to, they just don't make sense. I know it's nerve wracking to come up with the first or second message. I really understand that. But if I can take the time to study someone's profile and come up with intelligent questions, then so can you.

So while I'm at it, I'll just throw my second message pet peeve out there.

To see what it is,


Not only does the short message turn me off, but so does a message with bad grammar or spelling. I'm not a total grammar-Nazi. Lord knows I'm not perfect when it comes to grammar and spelling. Yet when someone messages me with mistake after mistake, I start to think that they just don't care. Kind of like writing "r" for "are" . . . could you please just take the extra two seconds to type the 'a' and 'e'?

So here is the bottom line, gents. If you are wondering why women aren't replying to your messages, take a look at the content. The solution just might be in front of you.
