So I guess I could post this on the OLD board, but... I emailed a guy on match the other day. I normally don't email first but things have been really slow & I did really like his profile so I figured what the heck. I sent a pretty quick email basically " Hi, I liked your profile I would be interested in getting to know you more. etc etc" or something to that effect.


I got a response today (pleasant surprise!) " Hi, Thanks for reaching out, glad you liked what you read. Hope you are having a good week.

Well, that wasn't exactly an exciting response, but I would probably e-mail him again; I just wouldn't keep my fingers crossed that I'd get an enthusiastic reply. It sounds to me like he's maybe just being cautious. If your e-mail was pretty much "just liked your profile," he might have been worried about sounding too eager. And really, if he thought you didn't sound like anybody he'd be interested in, he didn't have to reply at all.

That last line might just be a way to close the e-mail, or it might be an attempt to be a little warmer.

Anyway, what would it hurt to send him one more e-mail? I think his response--or lack of one--will tell you a lot.

Best of luck! :)

I would email back specific things you liked about his profile. Ask about some of the hobbies that he listed and ask what he likes about his job type stuff...yes email back. whats there to interpret??

I agree that he said what he meant.
