I was reading an article today about online dating and saw this statement “I only contact active members that have been online within the last 24 hours”. I wonder how many online daters do this. Do You?
When I was online dating I did look at last activity time/date. It didn’t rule what I did, but I sure considered it. One day I received a email of ‘potential matches’ and there was one of a man that I thought look interesting. I read his profile and I was even more interested. Then I looked at his last activity date and it showed he had not been active for 6 months. I sighed and thought he must have found someone, so I didn’t contact him.
This man I found interesting kept running through my mind as the evening went on and so I decided why not message him. If he doesn’t answer at least I know I tried. He did answer – plus he had been active but just went from free to a paid account so it was showing his old status.
Luckily I didn’t pay attention to the activity date, luckily I didn’t delete the email, luckily I contacted him, luckily our first date went wonderfully and now we have been married for more than a decade.
So don’t always turn away when the activity date doesn’t look good because you may regret it.
