Many emails before meeting online dating
I've done everything from less than 24 hours to messaging with someone (we still currently are) for over four months and not meeting up yet.
Ideally, I would say around a week, or maybe a bit less.
No, according to American researchers, the tipping point comes between 17 and 23 days after the first message is sent.
They conducted a survey of 433 online daters and found that the longer they waited to meet a match in person, the more likely they were to feel let down.
Then we chat more, I ask again and she still doesn't want to meet. She's still really nice but I don't care to keep "fighting"My answer, less than a week. I really like talking and getting to know guys first.
I can often get a sense of whether someone is right for me or not before the first date. Personally, my conversations last about four to five messages back and forth until I ask them out for coffee or drinks. Sometimes when things are busy in my life I wish the on site messaging could go on a little longer, although it's usually 2-3 messages before making plans.
If they agree, I'll continue talking to them until then.
Of course, exchanging a barrage of emails – even phone calls or Skyping– can seem more secure.
You can ‘get to know’ someone from behind the safety of a screen.
If I message him first, I wait for him to respond and then ask in my message back.
I know I'm late to this but in case anyone is still reading this, here's a story: I checked a guy out last night, wrote him a message, hit 'send' and got a message from him right back.
