    What to do when online dating is slow…

    So I have recently set up an online dating profile on the site OKCupid a few months back. I’m looking to get into my first real “relationship” ever, and I am not the most smooth or confident person at first. Online dating seemed like a safe yet fun way to start building towards something special, so I gave it a shot. Over the past few months, there have been a few profiles that I have stumbled upon that I have been really interested in, enough so that I would even message these girls basically saying “Hey! How are you?” or “Good evening! How’s it going?” Simple things like that. The problem isn’t that they haven’t responded, its that they aren’t even online (their profile says when they have last been online; nothing creepy or weird). Every time I’ve had somebody I’ve been interested in, nothing has come of it at all. My question is, when online dating is slow like this and I’m generally not an outgoing person, what else can I do to build in a relationship in a fun and safe manner?
