Online Dating: When They Stopped Responding to Emails

Posted by:

In online dating, you’ll sometimes be in an email conversation with a new person and things seem to be going great. Often there seems to be a strong connection and the conversation couldn’t flow better. Then, unexpectedly the person you are emailing stops responding. You might then think, “What did I do wrong? Why aren’t they emailing me anymore?”

This topic, where someone stops responding to your emails, is one that I’ve covered here before. However, it’s one of the areas ...

Too Much Emphasis on Kids in Your Dating Profile?

Posted by:

As a new-ish dad (my son is now 15 months old) I can say that having kids is absolutely wonderful. Exhausting but wonderful. And if you’re like me, you may find your kids becoming your go-to topic for conversations. Which is okay in most cases (as long as we’re not driving people crazy).

However, I’ve helped with some dating profiles recently and I’ve seen people put a bit too much emphasis on being dad or mom and not so much ...

Guy Winks at Me but Won’t Respond to my Emails

Posted by:

The way Match.com works can sometimes create confusion for subscribers. In this case, a woman receives a wink from a man and she’s interested so she emails him back…then he doesn’t respond! What’s up with that? Here’s an example from a reader:

Hi, I have received a wink a couple of months ago from a match guy. He also made me a favorite and “liked” my pictures. I winked back and sent him a note thanking him. No response. A month ...

Dating Someone when the “One that Got Away” Comes Back

Posted by:

Many months ago, I worked with a reader on a struggle he was having with a woman he was talking to. As much as he worked to gain her interest, she never fully returned it. She would go on dates or communicate, then disappear. Or she would seem interested only apparently lose that interest in him a week later. Eventually she stopped responding and while hurt, he did get over her.

I talked about this type of situation in my ...

When Someone You Want to Date Repeatedly Loses Interest

Posted by:

Many of us have been in this situation: you start to talk with someone and may even begin to date, but then they disappear. No more calls or texts and no explanation on where they went. Then out of the blue, they contact you again as if everything is fine and the cycle repeats itself.

I’ve seen people give up all other opportunities just to repeatedly wait on someone who isn’t fully committing and I want to talk about that here.

Are ...

Recovering from a First Date Blunder

Posted by:

There are times where a first date is going great. The two of you are finding a lot in common. Then you say something to be funny or without much thought and realize you’ve offended your date. Suddenly the mood changes and your odds of a second date go from almost-guaranteed to non-existent. So how do you handle this situation?

First off, in my last article I pointed out that many people are overly-critical of themselves. What I’m talking about ...

Avoiding Being Overly Critical of Yourself on First Dates

Posted by:

How do you respond when you think you’ve made mistakes on a first date? Do you think you’re “bad” at first dates? I find many people think this but in reality, they are doing fine.

I get regular emails discussing bad first dates and the desire to recover from a mistake on a first date. However, as I mention in the linked article, a fair amount of the emails I receive are from people who think they totally failed and ...

Safely Dating Multiple People on Match.com?

Posted by:

Some of my most popular articles are in regards to women who are struggling to get the man that are dating exclusively to take their Match.com profile down. This is driven in part because Match shows the last time someone was active and will also show when they are currently online.

For most of the cases in the article mentioned above, a man and woman have committed to date each other exclusively but then the guy won’t take his profile ...

Top 5 First Date Ideas

Posted by:

Planning where you’ll meet for your first date can be challenging, especially early on in your online dating experiences. For me, early on I thought every date needed to be an all-out affair with a very nice dinner and some activity afterward.

As I started to have success and was going on multiple first dates a week, my bank account just couldn’t keep up with my dating life! Because of this, I began to suggest simpler dates, often just meeting ...
