Online Dating Game And The Delayed Response
I loathe Game in the context of online dating. While I’m fairly good at it, this form of Game is irksome and frustrating for me.
Yet still I persist and yet still I am faced with the absolute necessity of Gaming online.
I have a system. I work it consistently. It works.
A few days ago I sent out a batch of online messages through Plenty of Fish. It yielded one positive response from a nice-looking blond woman who describes herself as thin. Her photos showed a 7 face and perhaps a slender build, perhaps.
Sidebar – My readers will likely note an ongoing theme regarding my preferences for women who are not fat. Finding a woman who isn’t tremendously overweight is very difficult in my age bracket. Fat is the new average and frankly, it worries me. Worse, being overweight is physically sickening to those who have packed on the pounds, men and woman alike. I will put up with quite a lot of emotional and mental bullshit in order to find a slender woman. Yeah, that goes against the tenets of Game but let’s not forget the ol’ boner test. I simply can’t get aroused with women who are too fat. My Johnson ain’t 25 years old anymore.
The response came two days after I sent out that batch of messages. Two days isn’t bad. Sadly, the message was so terse that it resembled a copy and paste job: “LOL you are funny! Nice to meet you Private Man!”
That’s it. She didn’t even bother to give me her name.
So, I had to wait before responding. There is something of a rule regarding the Game of waiting – double the amount of time it took her to respond before a guy should give his response. Make no mistake, it’s a game but with a small G. Women play games with online dating. Men Game with online dating. There is a clear distinction here.
So, this woman plays games by waiting a couple of days before responding. She’s not doing this intentionally. It’s completely natural for women who use online dating. Given her age, 49 – though she’s likely 52 or 53, I strongly suspect that she’s got a “full and rewarding life” filled with a bevy of activities and friends and sees online dating as an afterthought in her life.
So, I wait a couple of days before responding: “The pleasure is mine…but I am at a loss for your name…”
That’s it. Hell, why respond with something longer when she only sends me less than a dozen words?
I see that she has been online several times since I sent that message and I have actually paid a bit of money to PoF so that I can see if my outbound messages have been read. Sure enough, she had read my message within hours of me sending it. Of course, no response from her yet. She’s playing games. She is wired to play games.
But there is some delicious irony here. In her profile, she says the following:
I have numerous “Viewed me” and “wants to meet you” but for some reason, no emails and I got stood up with no im sorry or I was out of the country, washing my hair, whatever you guys say- just nothing and no response to my email.
OK, she sends out lots of emails to the best looking guys and they don’t respond. She’s over-valued herself in the sexual marketplace. That’s common for women. Red pill men know this. The irony is that she admits to it and then can’t quite get her rationalization hamster up to speed. She’s got a shitty hamster.
For all the women who read my blog and play games when online dating by delaying responses, don’t play games, especially if you don’t like when men do the same thing.
If you delay responses, here is what we men are thinking:
- You’re too busy to actually go on dates
- You’ve put us on a lower priority because you’re seeking a bigger better deal
- You’re flaky
- You’ve over-valued yourself (45 years old is the absolutely latest a woman can behave like this)
- You’re married, in a long term relationship, or just an attention whore.
If you delay responses, you’re simply not worth the mental energy for us to spend a few minutes writing online messages because there are simply too many other women out there.
A delayed response gets you blocked. You’re done. No second chances. Smart men will just move on.
I did cover this in one of my early posts. I incurred the wrath of a persistent rationalization hamster and hilarity ensued.
I do hope that the red pill dating coaches – Evan Marc Katz to the white courtesy phone – tell women that delaying responses won’t get them any dates.
