Why do you favor someone (dating website question)?


Recommended Posts

I get favored from guys who never message me. There's one I'm interested in so I messaged him and am hoping to be more than a favorite, but why would you favorite someone and not message them?


Just curious because I don't favor anyone, I just send a quick note if I like their profile or am interested.

I know why I do it...and it's not because I'm "doing something" with the pictures! haha


It's almost like a place mark because you may be going through a "search" and you favourite someone and then come back to that list and maybe review in more detail and then contact them afterwards. I could contact someone very quickly, but I prefer to actual put some thought into an email, not just "hey".


I have no idea why someone would not contact you if they "favoured" you. But hey, guys take numbers and don't call right?...this may just be the online version of that!

im guessing maybe he is just trying to gauge your interest and break the ice. maybe he has a fear of rejection and its easier to do that than send a message. Maybe he's lazy and doesnt want to waste time sending a message or wants you to make the first move. This is like a "wink" right? I stopped online dating, but if a guy winked at me and didnt send me a message, i would possibly wink back if i really liked the profile. I never would send him a message just for doing that though.

Couple of reasons:


1. He is too shy to profess his interest

2. He has saved you to his favorite list; so that he can revisit this late at his leisure time to send you a quick note

3. He has added you to his contacts queue but currently exploring his options with other ladies and trying to date them first (very unlikely)

I only do it when I'm interested in someone's profile but for some reason I'm drawing a blank for a conservation or don't feel like drafting a message at the moment. Occasionally I'll go back and check the list and actually send a followup message, but most of the time I forget.
