That makes sense. I need to add more details into my conversations. You nailed that one for sure. I tend to try and keep things short and concise. I guess I figure people are like me and don't want to read 2 3 paragraphs.
Here is an actual example of a conversation.
"I liked what I read. I hope your not TOO shy. I'm really looking for an adventure buddy. Since I'm sure you probably deal with alot on a dating website I'll be straight with you. I want to go out with someone new and grab a drink, play some arcade games, do some mini golf. Nothing more nothing less. At heart of what is to do something new with someone new." -me
"Hey. Well to match your up front attitude, I am not really looking to date right now. More meet cool new people to hang out with. I am pretty new to the area, so friends is much more appealing than dating.
What kind of video games do you like?" -her
"For me personally, I don't care if its a date. I'm more then happy being friends but I am a flirt so I hope that's alright. As far as video games? Haha Well its one of my favorite hobbies. I'm into a lot of things including guitar, drawing, painting and photography BUT video games are high up on my chart. I'm into just about everything from adventure games to competitive shooters. I think what draws me in to gaming is the art but I also enjoy the challenge/reward you get. Do you have specific games your playing right now?" -me
