Q I have all these flirty messaging threads on dating apps, and they never go anywhere once I suggest taking it offline. Am I doing it wrong? A
It’s not you, it’s the app. Online, most people never follow through. But to up your odds, try this: (1) Put a note in your profile that says, “I’m not here to make friends online. I want to meet IRL.” (2) When you’re chatting, set a time limit, like 20 minutes or 10 messages, and stick to it. When you hit your limit, tell him if he wants to chat, you’d rather do it over a cocktail. (3) Don’t wait for guys to ask you out. Just suggest a time and place you’d like to meet in person.
