I am currently involved in at least 3 active conversations with guys on a dating app, all of whom expect me to check in with them every day and exchange lengthy messages.
Doing this has already made me feel burnt out after less than a week. I am beginning to think online dating isn’t for me? Or maybe I’m wrong, and I have put an unrealistic burden on myself to chat with these guys every day.
But if I fail to respond to these guys promptly enough, within a few hours for example, they double text me.
You don’t have to respond to these guys every day nor have lengthy conversations. You have a life outside of online dating. No need to make online dating a second job or more work than it needs to be.
If they are so desperate to hear from you that they double text you after only a few hours of not having received a response to their message, they aren’t worth your time.
Don’t feel like you are obligated to keep messaging them if they are unable to respect your time and expect you to be at their beck and call when it comes to conversation.
The right match for you would respect your time and not expect you to message them every single day with lengthy conversations.
Always remember that you are in control when it comes to online dating. The guys that you are chatting with do not have a right to your time. When and how you choose to communicate with them is at your discretion.
