If they did respond did you end up messaging for days, if not weeks, before they would consider meeting you?
If you did get to meet, did you find that they didn’t match their photo?
Even if they did match their photo, did you find that there was no chemistry?
That’s a bit of a long-winded way to meet the wrong person...isn’t it?
Wouldn’t you rather find the right person in a natural way, straight away? If you found them, wouldn’t you want to know that they want you to approach them and, better still, know what to say in order to strike up a conversation?
