Tell me what *you* do and what your friends say that do. Just to clarify, I send email to girls who I am interested in regardless of whether they looked at my profile or winked or not.
I never wink at girl, either, always send a short email to get them to look at my profiles.
He may, however, start to lurk around your profile when you are online, and he could potentially send you a note. I learned to feel secure within the avenues provided by the dating sites I used. He is now forced to make a decision - either email or get off the lily pad. Letting him make the next move will toad proof you this round.
At the end of the day, if you get a creepy vibe at any point in the process, try another pond...there are plenty of Toad Kingdoms out there. If you return his wink with an email, you give away your power too early in this game.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...
You’ve just joined that Online Dating Site you promised in your New Year’s Resolutions, huh?
Even after reading a woman’s online dating profile, there’s no real way to know if she is going to be interested.
Most dating sites offer you the ability to send some flirty, noncommittal messages to the men you find attractive.
The most common and suggestive of these is the “wink.” When you choose to “wink” at a man, that man will be notified how a woman picked him out and showed interest in him, and if he opens the “wink,” he will see you were the one who sent it. Can sending a wink actually ruin your chances with a guy? They might not like a wink as much as they like an actual message from a woman, but a wink is better than receiving nothing from a woman.
And women on dating websites make this matter even worse because, as a general rule, women don’t send out a lot of first messages on these platforms.
Most women are too busy responding to the flood of messages they’ve received to spend too much time browsing for new men to talk to, and women have at least as many problems as men when it comes to marshaling together the nerve to actually send out a full message to someone they find attractive.
