Yeah I used to never respond to 1 word / 1 sentence messages, but now I go read their profile and if I like it I'll message back. I know it's hard to think of something to open with sometimes.

Yes, getting to know him, that's exactly why he sent a one sentence message. I liked his profile and I like him, he's just not into text-based communication.

Ok Tinder specific: What the heck do you say in the first message? I've tried something like "hey, how's it going" to a few matches, but only got one response. I mean, obviously it's a lame message and I'd never do it on OKC but with Tinder, I have no information about these people other than a couple of pictures!

I'm not too good with this either. I think the "hey there" or "hi" is basically about determining if the person is real and intends to respond. I usually say hi back when I get this. I've had mixed results with more specific openers, pretty often I get ignored. So, basically commiserating here!

Gah! It was so good! We hung out for like 4 hours and I only left because I had prior plans (that I was totally late for) and we planned to hang out again. I have crushes on everyone and it's great!

Last winter I had a crush on a customer at work. He'd come in about once a week and we never spoke beyond sometimes saying hi, but we'd always catch each other staring and stuff. Then at some point I stopped seeing him and I assumed he moved away or something.

THEN, I recently stumbled on his okc profile and sent him a message. We traded a few messages and have been texting a little, and we have a possible date on Wednesday. Communication with him so far has left me kind of "meh", but I had a crush on him for so long that I'm going to go out with him anyway. Maybe he'll be better in person?

For me, communication in these modern times always seems kind of meh. If you already know what he looks like and are interested, that seems like half the battle. Anyway, nothing to lose, right?

Well I know that I, personally, really really suck with OKC communication.

Right. I'm hoping he's just bad at text-based communication and can talk about interesting things in a coherent way in person.

I did my own little experiment last week - I was at home visiting my family and went on Tinder. Got a bunch of responses from guys! Meanwhile, where I live, on Tinder no guys respond to me at all. Guys here are so weird.

This city just seems way too small....I re-activated my okcupid, and the first match they sent me was the guy who almost moved into my apartment a month ago...followed by a guy I already dated once.

Second date with this person! We're going to this overlook spot (the bluffs for those of you in pdx) with a bottle of wine. Maybe I'll get some make outs tonight?

Ok did make out, it was underwhelming. I mean any make out is great but it was short and I'm just not super into this girl. I guess I just don't know her at all. We don't even text between dates. So maybe it'll get better as I get to know her more?

buhhhh... bummer! I'd say give it another shot potentially, but trust your gut. Any time I've had these unsure 'am I really that into them?' thoughts early on, it definitely came back to haunt me with a big 'told ya so'.

I'm def going to give it another shot. I'm willing to be proven wrong. And besides just cuz it's not the best doesn't mean that it's the worst. I mean it was lovely and all, I'm just not smitten. But like I said I don't really even know her much so there's not much to go on.

I think it may just be the lack of flirtation that's making it less exciting. I'll be seeing my other crush soonish and I'm more excited about that (even though it'll be after my next date with this person) because there's so much flirting going on.

In similar situations I find that it's usually chemistry that's lacking. There must be a reason why there's not as much flirting, no? Anyway, glad to hear of some positive crush action!
