What is so disappointing to me is that when we are matched with a guy in our age category (& they do seem to be few & far between) they don't seen to be interested in the least little bit. Wouldn't you think that if a "match" is indicated, they would take a moment to view our profile, say hello, ask a question or two. There had to be something that generated the match; why not pursue it a bit? I wrote to one of my few matches & asked if we might try messaging. The response was kind of like, "I guess so; perhaps; well, maybe" Whoop-di-doo! I really wanted to jump right on that one! WHY ARE THEY HERE???!!!
At least they've responded to you and by their lack of enthusiasm, have let you know that they aren't interested. Don't let it get you down. They weren't worth your time anyway. If you have to "pull teeth" to get someone to respond to your request, then don't waste your time on 'em.
