For example, change “What are your plans for the weekend” into, “So what kind of trouble are you getting into this weekend?
You show that you’re interested in knowing more about the person, but still not perfectly sold, and you close with a question that hooks her for a response – a question that that nobody could resist answering: After sending this perfectly crafted message, you wait.
Do some quick Wikipedia research on Africa, or whatever she responded with and try to find in her response (or profile) that allows you to “keep the conversation going.”It could be that your potential date is simply a bad conversationalist, doesn’t have a lot of time, is dumb or shy, hates messaging, or is following some kind of weird dating advice that tells them to avoid revealing interest out of the fear that they will scare you away.
There are so many reasons that she could have given you such a short, uninspired response.
But, of course, writing a one-word email in response to her one-word message isn’t going to do much in the way of building interest and attraction, so you will need to craft a short sentence or two along with a good simple question.
With short responders, always follow up with a simple question, but phrase it in an interesting way.
