How To Respond To Someone That Gives One Word Answers?
One problem I have occasionally with talking to girls online is some give one word answers, but they continue to respond. Here is an example..
Subject: Milk With Ice
Me: Hey there...no serious have you ever tried it?
Her: No, never have...
Me: lol..you don't know what your missing. Ok, do you like brownie with or without nuts?
I was using the convo structure from another post. In general, how do you respond to posts that only give you short answers with not much material to work with?
put a little bit of content in your messages
you're asking closed ended questions. Try more open ended questions that cannot be answered with a simple one word answer.
I make the good girls bad, and bad girls worse;
nice guys are last 'cause Iím always first.
Iím a freak show sucker for how it feels;
turn the girl next door into hell on heels.
Iím red-white-blue tattooed and just donít care;
Iím the all American nightmare.
-Hinder, All American Nightmare
First check your grammar: you'RE missing, brownieS with
Simple things like that are noticed
Second, Cane's topic was a template. Not every girl is going to fall in line with it, and you shouldn't expect them to. You could reply with something playing off the fact that both choices are 'plain' or 'safe' - bring in something from her profile. I'm not really into canned responses, so you'll have to figure it out from there.
3 options I can see
1 - as above ask open ended questions - well just set them as statements.
2 - too many one word answers = timewasting...NEXT her
3 - Funnily I think its one of the few times a NEG online can work. Praise her for her in-depth responses - it may just piss her off to take action
I would choose nr 2
Dude, those messages are monstrously weird. That can appeal to certain types of girls who will "play along," but this particularly girl was almost certainly thinking:
"What... the... fuck... is this guy talking about? Are these questions leading somewhere that actually makes sense? I'll at least answer to find out... I hope so, otherwise this guy is just weird as hell."
bro.... you never ask a woman if shes tried milk with ice..... its obvious that when milk and ice are put together.... they make ice cream....
try my opener its in the online game forum
I don't think the milk with ice is bad in the subject line, but then your message has to have at least something in it to get her to respond. I believe Canes thread has a generic friendly "hey there" for his message.
I would through in at least something that shows you read their profile.
How old are the girls you're pursuing?

But if you try an oddball question like that on a woman who's 25-35yo, it's going to come off as a bit juvenille.
Also, don't run opener after opener after opener. If your opener doesn't 'hook' the target, it's time to move on. And the fact that she replied with a one word answer indicates she's trying to be polite, but isn't sufficiently interested IMHO
Watch your grammar and usage
When messaging girls online make sure to use words you can spell and that your usage and punctuation is right.
Mistakes like "Your right" is quick way to DLV and blow out of set with many girls when you're messaging. Also, avoid filler words and try to choose words that will stimulate their emotions - keep the energy high.
