Being a Gentleman While Online Dating Gets You More Replies

A man being polite and messaging a woman back right away while online dating.

For guys who are online dating, it’s no secret that it can be a bit of a numbers game. How many woman do you match with, how many woman do you message, how many women do you reply to… It all takes a lot of time and it’s hard to know how best to spend yours when all you really want to do is have a good conversation and meet up with someone. That’s why this next bit of information from the online dating site and app Zoosk, should help you out a bit… be a gentleman.

If you’re wondering where to focus your efforts, instead of messaging new people or making new matches, reply to the people you’ve already messaged first. It seems like a normal thing to do but a lot of men overlook it.

According to Zoosk, if you want to get a reply back from a woman and keep the conversation going, reply back to her messages within the day.

– Men who message women back in the same day have a 62% response rate.

– Men who wait a day to message a woman have a 50% response rate, which is a 24% decrease.

– Men who wait two days before responding have a 45% response rate.

So don’t forget to turn those app notifications on and stay on top of your messages. When it comes to online dating, the two day rule definitely does not apply.
