Sometimes (very, very rarely to be precise), I feel bad for harshly shutting down guys on dating sites. No one likes rejection. But then, I rethink my perspective and realize that I am actually doing them a service because I’m directly letting them know that their approach is a failure. If they heed the warning, and rearrange their approach, there are also potentially third party beneficiaries (the other women they solicit).
I think guys believe that if a woman doesn’t respond to their first attempt, their initial message must have somehow slipped through the cracks. While that may be the case in rare instances, a majority of the time, her lack of response is directly correlated to her lack of interest. In other words, NO RESPONSE = NO INTEREST.

Good evening, I hope your day went well. I’m Andre, I’m 28, and I’m visiting newtown, pa for work and I thought it would be nice to make your acquaintance.
It’s always nice to meet a new friend in a new city.
Also, if you’re not to busy this week I would to grab a drink with you and talk. How’s that sound ?

It sounds equally as unappealing as your first request.
