So someone finally visited your profile… that’s great news.
But they didn’t message you… are you not worthy or were they not interested?
Or maybe they just don’t want to speak first.
That happens a lot, more than you’d think.
It doesn’t hurt to be the one to send the first message.
But what do you say?
I’ll make it easy for you, say this (feel free to copy and paste it as is):
Hi, I noticed that you stopped by for a peak at my profile but didn’t send me a message. Just in case you’re shy I thought I’d send you a friendly hello and get the ball rolling.
That was easy and painless…. honest.
I’m sure we share enough in common to at last hold a conversation for a while and I hope you’ll message me back soon.
Hope to hear from you soon.
You can just copy and paste the whole message above and use it as is, or change it up a bit to me more your own style.
The key is to send the message, without commitment or clinginess.
Who knows, this person could become a great friend or the next true love of your life!

This isn’t a rare thing that’s happening to you. Most women deal with this because the guy they’re dating doesn’t understand your view of your being together.
And it doesn’t really matter that you’re not alone in this, most women have gone through it too.
