#3 Reason Why They Didn’t Write Back

Why they didn't message you back Header

You Said it Wrong You Idiot!

You’ve gotta say things the right way!  Do it like I do!  Here, this is a recent OkCupid correspondence I initiated with SexyGirl88.  I then show the same correspondence with the subtext explained…

ME:  Hey

SEXYGIRL88: hey

ME:  Whats up?

SEXYGIRL88:  Nothing

ME:  Oh ya?  Too bad.

SEXYGIRL88:  yeah

ME:  #

SEXYGIRL88:  XXX-XXX-XXXX

Now with subtext translations…

ME:  Hey

[Subtext Translation: Hello, my name is Jim, I’m a cool, successful guy also living in Austin, it’s a pleasure to correspond with you because I can see that you’re a really special woman that any guy would be lucky to be with.]

SEXYGIRL88: hey

[Subtext Translation:  Hi!  My name is Nancy; you’re making me blush!  It looks like we have many of the same interests and it looks like you’d be a catch for any woman!]

ME:  Whats up?

[Subtext Translation:  I saw that one of your mantras was Jim Rohn’s quote: “Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.”  I respect your social interests and I also enjoy living in the present moment! What has your week been like so far? – You see!  You gotta make that shit personal or else they’ll know you didn’t read their profile!]

SEXYGIRL88:  Nothing

[Subtext Translation:  Yes, being present has been the greatest lesson of my life.  I’ve been busy with nursing…  — Did you notice how she left off the period?  It’s not ‘Nothing period’; it’s an open ended nothing.  She’s saying – I’m busy tonight at the hospital, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t be interested in doing something later on in the week  🙂 ]

ME:  Oh ya?  Too bad.

[Subtext Translation: That sucks that you’re so busy, but then again, your work as a nurse must be very rewarding and fulfilling.  Maybe I’ll just have to get myself sick 😉 ]

SEXYGIRL88:  yeah

[Subtext translation:  Ooohh, I like you sense of humor!  My work is very fulfilling, thank you for validating my life choices!  Don’t bother getting sick cause I make house calls also 😉 ]

ME:  #

[Subtext translation:  I don’t mind waiting until you’re free because you’re so great!  But in the meantime, why don’t we exchange phone numbers so we can communicate easily when an opportune moment does arise.]

SEXYGIRL88:  XXX-XXX-XXXX

See how simple it is!
