Some people are not as good about asking questions or feeling comfortable about asking questions. Think of interviewers – some are just naturally good about making others comfortable and asking the right questions that make it easy for them to open up – like an Oprah. You seem to have this skill. Others feel uncomfortable about asking probing questions or when they ask it comes out sounding awkward to them. It might be that they want to know, but do not know how to ask without it sounding too personal, crossing line.
This is an example of what I am referencing
I've brought it up once to one guy I had been talking to for a few months because it still felt like he didn't know that much about me, and he responded well.
Sounds like he does not how to go about finding about you – not that he doesn’t want to know you better.
You could help them. Switch it the other way – thank them and say wow you really filled me in about the type of person you are. Is there something you would like to know about me? If there is too long of a silence prompt them a bit more – think of something you would think is important for them to know about you – maybe something like what sorts of things I do on vacation, on the weekend, my family --- It might not be that they are not interested – they just do not have the skills to interview in this way. I think a lot of doing this stuff over the internet does cause some social angst and decreases many people’s skills in the social areas so if you are good with these skills no reason to try to help them along.
Question – have you met any of these guys in person? They could be a completely different in person. Talking in person is completely different than via the internet. I agree with not lowering your standards, but maybe you help prompt a few of these socially awkward men. Maybe that is all it is – they could be great guys in all other ways. One thing (which you probably already know – but being a mom I need to say) – if you meet these guys, do so in a public place; some of them are out just to hook up – so if you do get one that is suddenly interested in finding out about your personal stuff and seem very smooth, I’d also be careful. Doesn’t mean that they aren’t interested, but it could mean they know how to get a girl interested in them.
