Online Dating: What Is It With Setting Up Plans And Then Not Replying?

There are some people that you will meet on an online dating site who set up plans for a date with you because it seemed like a good idea at the time.

However, they may have only done that because they are looking to set up dates with as many people as they can on the online dating site.

These would be people that they have some degree of interest in.

However, the degree of interest may vary from person to person.

Hence, even though they set up a plan for a date with you, you may not have been on the highest level of romantic interest to them.

They may like you to an extent, but there may be a number of other people on the online dating site that they like more and would thereby prefer going out on dates with.

Hence, even though they set up a plan for a date with you, they may stop replying to you afterward because someone else that they met on the online dating site and they like a lot more than you has either started showing more interest in them or has chosen to go out on a date with them.

This is a common occurrence on online dating sites.

Being that there are so many dating options, there are some people who will set up dates with others on a whim.

They want to keep those dating options open.

However, there is always a priority scale when it comes to who they would really like to go out on a date with.

They will often stop replying to someone that they had set up a date with when someone else that they are a lot more interested in on the dating site starts showing more interest in them or wants to go out on a date with them.

Being that this is a common occurrence in online dating, try not to take it personally.

Being that this person that you set up a date with hasn’t been replying to you, you should take that as a sign that they are just not all that interested in meeting you.

Another reason why a person would set up a date with you and then not reply to you afterward can often be because they may have simply gotten cold feet.

Oftentimes, people become really comfortable when they are chatting with someone on an online dating site.

It may just be easier for them to be who they are or who they want to be when they are communicating with someone digitally.

However, when it comes to the prospect of meeting this person that they have been communicating with on an online dating site in real life, they get scared.

They start making themselves believe that the first meeting will be awful.

They worry that they may say the wrong words or you may not even like how they look.

They worry that they may humiliate themselves.

They may set up that initial date with you with the intention of meeting you.

However, as the reality of meeting you in real life sinks in, they become so uncomfortable with messing up on that first date that they get cold feet.

They are now embarrassed that they don’t have the courage to meet you in real life. As a result, they choose to stop replying to you so as not have to explain themselves.
