I have been online dating for a while, and I honestly don’t understand guys who just right “hi.” Not, “hi, how are you.” Or “How is your weekend going” or even “I hope you are having a nice day.”
None of my male friends will admit to doing this, and I would honestly love to ask these men why they do that. Do they just message every profile they see “hi” and hope that of the hundreds of women they message one or two will message them back? And on the off chance that someone DOES message them back, does the conversation continue and is it a quality conversation?
Are these guys even selective of who they say “hi” to? Do they read profiles? Do they even look at pictures, or its it just like shooting a machine gun at a flock of ducks and hoping you hit one?
I am also curious about IF women ever message them back and what happens after that. Maybe one of these days I’ll say “hi” back and see what happens. If that is the case, I will take notes and report back.
Most of the men who say “hi” have the type of profiles you would expect–no effort in their profiles, poorly written, uneducated and socially awkward. However, once in a blue moon, I will get a “hi” message and be pleasantly surprised. Like a guy who is good looking, well educated, with a sufficient and grammatically correct profile. For these people I am so tempted to write back “you seem like such a normal, smart guy! Why are you just messaging women and saying ‘hi’?! Put a little more effort into it!”
