    Meaning of message on online dating

    I’m a woman who is new to an online dating site. Recently, I sent a “like” to one of the guys and he replied with a message of “Thank you”. I am unsure what this means. I am leaning toward thinking that this means “thank you, however I am not interested” as it doesn’t really seem to be an invitation to further conversation. Thank you for any feedback you may have for me.

    It means he’s not interested.
    However he didn’t want to be rude by not acknowledging the “like”.

    If someone is “interested” in you they’ll generally ask you some questions and initiate a conversation.
    There are some people especially women who tend to have a negative view of “likes” “flirts” or “emojis” as ice breakers.

    It conjures up an image of someone scrolling down a list of profiles and simply hitting like (hoping) for the other person to make contact.
    Men are notorious for hitting the “like” or “cute” button without putting in any time or effort to connect.

    If you “like” someone’s profile it only takes a minute to state a couple of things you liked in it and wish them a good day.
    At least they’ll feel as though you actually read their profile and didn’t simply click on “like” because of a photo.

    Don’t allow yourself to become emotionally invested in anyone you haven’t spent significant time with.
    In a world with over 7 Billion people rejection just means NEXT!

    Yes, it’s quite clear that he isn’t interested. If a guy is interested in you online, at the very least, he will “like” you back. But most likely, he will message you, trying to get to know you more. The fact that he didn’t either means a) he has very poor social skills, or b) more likely, he isn’t interested.

    @dashingscorpio: ‘Men are notorious for hitting the “like” or “cute” button without putting in any time or effort to connect.’
    Isn’t that exactly what she did?

    I agree, most likely he isn’t interested. Or maybe he has other more interesting conversations going. Anyway, for men and women alike, if you want a response, dont send a like, send a message that encourages a response (e.g. has a question).
