    I’ve had profiles on online dating sites for a while, and since I’ve recently lost a lot of weight I’ve noticed my profile has received more attention. I’ve even gotten a few responses. However it soon fizzles out I’m guessing b/c I’m not good at talking to people. Is there a way to improve your social skills?

    Start talking to people at your work or school (I dont know how old you are) It might help

    Please provide age range and gender

    the key is not to engage in live chats…because when you don’t know the person and don’t have much to go on it can get very boring very fast. Heres what you do, don’t respond to the message right away, think of your response make it witty if you can, go back to their profile and find things in it and try to relate that way but don’t lie or fake it..like if they say their fave movie is American Beauty don’t pretend to like it too (unless you do) just ask why it is their fave. people love to explain why they love the things they love, it brings out happy passionate feelings which makes them feel good about talking to you. ask them about themselves people love to talk about themselves, don’t make it sound like an interrogation, give room between questions. when they answer pay attention to the answer and bring up some of the info indirectly next time you chat so they know they’re not just another profile

    And try to stay positive in your conversation, DONT COMPLAIN about anything, no body likes a negative nelly, before you send your message read it and eliminate anything that makes you sound negative. GOOD LUCK : )

    Don’t beat yourself up. Your probably fine talking to people. I have a lot of friends, was married for over 20yrs, family, I love to meet new people even join social event groups etc. My point is I am having the same issues. I get emails and then they disappear off the face of the earth. It seems there isn’t many sincere people on these sites truly looking for a relationship.
