What Makes Girls Respond On Tinder? Girls Reveal The One Thing That Will Always Make Them Respond On Dating Apps


With ghosting becoming more common than ever, the only thing that's more offensive than having someone make a B-line for the exit without so much as a sayonara is being disqualified before the games have even begun. If you're having some trouble getting girls to respond on Tinder, fortunately, all hope is not lost.

At this point, it's safe to say that dating apps are basically the wild, wild west. If you aren't looting like a bandit, then you best believe that someone else with a bit more game is going to ride in on their white horse, rounding up all the goodies for themselves. When it comes to convincing the girl of your dreams — or at least, one you think is cute enough to hang — not to ghost you from the start, there is a bit of effort involved. But surprisingly, not as much as you might think. The truth is that the large majority of women have probably decided before they hear from you whether or not they are buying what you're selling. It seems the first message is the most important when it comes to winning over girls who may be a bit more on the fence about their interest level. According to a couple of Reddit threads and some lady friends of mine, there are some steps you can take to up your chances of hearing back from Becky.

Remember, at the end of the day, "getting someone to respond" doesn't need to be your focus because more often than not, the people who are interested will respond. It never hurts to get creative, but whatever you do, don't send a crotch-shot — unless it's been specifically requested of course.
