It is my experience that most people would much prefer to get a polite, “Thanks for your interest but I don’t think we’re a good match.I wish you all the best.” so they can stop wondering and move on.Saying “no thanks” to every person who happens to wink your way seems rather tedious. You don’t know them personally, and you’re certainly not the only one they probably copy/pasted that message to. Users should focus more on attracting other members of similar core values rather than coddling those they’re just not that into.
Instead of something vague and boring like, what do you like to do?
Ask something more creative and playful, like, what was your favorite TV show in high school?
You should feel good about being honest, I think it’s a generous gesture. And the few that might respond negatively will just confirm to you that they wouldn’t have been a good choice.
First rule of thumb: Always be gracious and honest! If you’ve had a date or met in person: “I really enjoyed meeting you and think you’re terrific, but I just don’t think we have that chemistry/connection that I know we’re both looking for.
According to our experts, it seems like in online dating, it’s best (and easier) to ignore the suitor than take the more chivalrous route and cordially respond.
Hopefully, this is a reflection of the weirdos found on all those other sites that gave us the impetus to create Sparkology.Turns out we're as much fans of humor and personality as you are.Now I understand that women do get something like 300 times the number matches on dating apps that guys do (that number may be slightly inflated), and that it is often necessary to be quick and curt in order to wade through it all.So you've got yourself a match or two, or 200, on the latest dating app.Next, it's time to whittle things down to a manageable selection of guys who are promising and cute—or, for people with simpler standards, who don't look like complete psychos.Then, you reach the point of serious contact, when you message one another to try and decide if he's someone who's actually worth leaving the house for.
