I often just send a gif or a meme.

But is it a good idea to just text: you've been quiet! if you didn't find me interesting, just let me know. at least I can save us some time

FYI, I text to at least 4-8 women per week. Most of them are funneled from my dating apps, a few only from real-life meets. The latter, however, definitely has more success.

ALSO, it's been 50/50 for me that when I ping someone up, she either tells me she just has been super busy (which I then just route to a phone call + vibe check) or she at least decently tells me to fuck off/not interested. The former between these two had at least legit reasoning, one is her mother being sick from covid, the other just super busy because of her demanding job

And I know 90% of the time, she just ain't interested BUT pinging has worked for me. I also truly believe that if anyone really likes you, they will message you/communicate with you at any cost but again, some women really do suck at communicating.

So I'm just asking

These simple questions:

  1. What do you generally do to "reads" or unreplies that's now about 3-4 days old?

  2. Is it ever a good idea to be straightforward about it? I do hate the ghosting culture but it's also not my job to promote anti-ghosting

  3. What has been your experience w/ low replies?

I know it depends on the context too. E.g.: plate 1, who I only dated once, went silent for 1 week. I was patient and had other rotations, but I pinged after the 1st week (with a silly meme) & found out she was having family issues that needed her attention.

Also if I spam too much, I become desperate. I've lost a few good contacts this way. Do you have a template?
