If his message is personal in nature and obviously written specifically for you, then that’s a very good sign; he has clearly taken the time to read through your profile and there’s something there that has appealed to him.
On the other hand, if you have received something that seems like a generic message probably sent out to dozens of others, then this isn’t quite so promising.
Any woman that has used an online dating website will at some point have asked herself the question “does he really like me?
” It can be difficult to gauge someone’s interest in you on a dating website, because you can’t use the normal signals you might pick up on in an offline environment.
If he appears to be hanging on your every word and is genuinely interested in what you are telling him, then that’s obviously pretty positive.
If the first date went really well, you both agree to meet up again, and within a day or two he contacts you to arrange something, then it’s probably safe to say that he is interested in you.
If he really seems interested, then it’s probably best not to second guess the situation; you should just assume he is being genuine and go with the flow.
In either case, there’s some evidence to suggest that, at this early stage, he is in some way interested in you.
If he has contacted you via your profile on a dating website, then the style of his message should give you some clue as to just how interested he his.
However, it isn’t an entirely uncommon situation that the first date goes really well, but things cool down a little bit after that.
