Yes, it’s true that self-sabotage is one of the reasons why online dating isn’t working!Okay, some people may not mind this as much, but if you fall into this category and you aren’t getting any good dates or messages, then I would back off a little.It demonstrates that you are genuinely interested in learning more about the person. I hate to tell you this, but talking down about yourself is not going to get you a date. People come to the internet to find someone they match with, not someone they can be a therapist for.
But is this a positive development or something to be concerned about?
Is online dating making the world better and dating more effective, or is something important being lost or sacrificed as a result?
I’m not saying that you need to respond within an hour, or even the same day, but I would at least make an effort to reply back no later than two days after you received the message.
Show the other person that you are truly interested in them.
