If memory serves me, only about 15% of users have more than 500 friends, so that gives you some pretty good insight at to the kind of account this person has. But hey, take your chances, strike up a meaningful conversation.
Maybe something about a post she’s presented or an idea she brought up.
We’ve probably all “met” the online dater who messages us novellas (or maybe we used to be that person). Time and time again, friends of mine feel crushed when they build a strong rapport with someone in writing, yet when they meet, there’s no love connection.
All you need to say in writing is a couple specific things about their profile, respond to things they message you (assuming they’ve written to you), and ask a few questions (see #3).
But seeing as it’s currently there, I see she has a little over 3,000 friends/followers.
Seeing as the average person has about 350 friends, I’m led to believe she likely gets tons of requests and simply accepts them to help get her name out there.
Trust me, you’ll see how people's messages and responses change. Though it may take practice, online dating — and messaging potential dates — gets easier the more you do it.
Anyone can say they dance or read, but what kind of dancing and what kind of books?
Here’s an example straight from a guy's Ok Cupid profile: “I recently finished Augusten Burroughs’ Sellevision and just cracked open Freedom by Jonathan Franzen.
Usually, though, they can see when you last logged in, so what does waiting really prove (aside from showing that you're busy and writing to other people)?
I know that sometimes we log in just for a moment and don't have time to write back immediately.
