If I send a woman a compliment and say what my name is and all I get back is "THANKS"

You better believe I'm saying something nasty back. I get so sick of woman sending back that THANKS nonsense when they can just delete the message and block me.

Why waste time sending that ladies if you are not interested???? It's called DELETE and BLOCK

Is this really something to start a thread about? They're probably being polite. Women are taught to say thank you when someone gives them a compliment. Is this the real issue, or is there something else that's upsetting you?

It could be a lot worse. At least they weren't rude, or didn't message you back: "keep away from me, loser", or something. If you take a small thing like this so badly, maybe online dating isn't for you? Weren't you enjoying it, for awhile? I seem to recall some threads about some successes you had.... You seem a little stressed at the moment, though.

I have my good and bad moments but i just had when I get a message back thinking she is interested and it's nothing but a thanks. They are going to pay for sending that message to me from now on.

How easy is it to DELETE and BLOCK??

Do your messages contain anything other than "Hi, my name is ... and [compliment]"? If not, that could be why all you get back is "Thanks"

How do you intend to punish these women who use good manners on you? What abuses are you considering?

Totally agree. If I was on a dating sight and someone said "hey, my name is Joe...you have nice hair" the only response I could think of would be "thank you for the compliment"

How in the world to you expect them to answer you? It MIGHT be that by communicating back with you, they are putting the ball back in your court to see if you are interested. From what I've heard, some guys put little effort in because all they want to do is find an easy lay. Next time try asking them something about their profile to show them you have read it and are interested in them.
