In a word, you have to make the apps and sites a priority if you want them to work in your favor and help you to meet that special person.
In many cases, the more active you are, the more likely you are to find someone.3. Another reason why you may not be having much luck in the digital dating department is that your dating profile is empty, sparse and/or unfinished. On the flip side, if you’re wondering why dating apps and sites aren't working for you, another reason may be that your profile is way too long.
And it’s important to keep in mind that a scant profile will yield scant results, since an incomplete description or missing pictures will make you appear as though you’re not taking dating very seriously, aren’t truly interested in meeting someone special and that you don’t have time or energy to make dating, or a potential partner, a priority. And rather than coming off as well-cultured and interesting, you simply look overbearing and long-winded. An additional reason why this kind of dating may not be working for you is that you’re not taking the initiative to message people on the app or site.
Remember, no one wants to read paragraph after paragraph about the entire history of your life, so opting for a few key sentences is the key toward having a profile that will capture someone’s attention. And while you may think that you should be approached first, sending the initial message actually shows someone just how confident and assertive you are—both of which are appealing qualities.6. And speaking of digital conversations, another reason that you may not be having any luck on the dating apps and sites is that you’re not personalizing the messages you’re sending.
It’s not that it’s impossible that he was busy, or accidentally deleted your email, or had an emotional crisis that caused him to abandon dating for awhile.
Rather, it’s that, 99 times out of 100, a guy who doesn’t write back to you is a guy who isn’t attracted to you. Because women – especially younger women – receive infinitely more emails than men.
It’s not my place to judge, but everyone’s entitled to his/her preferences.
