This lady revealed in her profile that just because she viewed a man's profile and didn't leave a message doesn't mean she is not interested. She just prefers the guy to take the lead and send her the initial message.


How many of you ladies who use online dating do this or have done this?

Nope. If I'm I terested, I'll initiate contact.

Her strategy puzzles me. I view a lot of profiles where, after reading the profile, I am not i terested. No sense in tease or givin false hope.

Not me! If I visited his profile and didn't write, it's because I'm not interested.

Well, sometimes it takes me multiple vists over a few weeks/years to make up my mind...

Women want men to take charge and initiate contact...which is immature IMO. If you're on a dating site and see someone you like then say hi its quite simple. Girls on dating sites, tend to have higher expectations then in real life. Plus if your pictures suck it don't matter what you wrote in your bio.

I proved that many of times. I put a final sentence in my profile that said

"I just like to add i have a silly turn on and loves when a woman takes off her shoes and walks on my back"


They never make reference to it they just pretend like they never see it if they are attracted LOL
