What is Online Dating Like For A Man?

Online dating is an uncharted territory, for both men and women. But it’s funny how often women wonder what online dating is like for a man? 


The reason is simple; men are complicated creatures. Only a guide like ours can help the ladies out there understand what online dating is like for a man. This actually is a helpful step in figuring out how to deal with a man who you met online, from his perspective. 


And this, ladies, will give you a fair shot at the competition brewing around some of the most eligible men on online dating platforms. 


Here are the top 3 things that a man experiences, on an online dating platform. Take your time, ponder over these and take them in. Then turn right around and see how you can use these insights as your strengths to win that man over!


In this guide, you’ll find out:

  • What is online dating like for a man?
  • Three things that men experience in online dating

Three Things That Men Experience in Online Dating

1. The Number of Messages  

As a woman you’d be well aware of the countless messages you receive on online dating platforms. But here’s the unexpected part….the same is true for men too. The online dating dynamics make it easier for a woman to approach a man. 

Just like men pursue women relentlessly on these platforms, women are not far behind. They see a man they like, and within seconds they press the ‘chat’ button. So contrary to what you must be thinking, men are not waiting around. 

They have their own share of options on the platform. And chances are, if he has caught your eye, other ladies did too. So while a man does not receive hundreds of messages, the act of pursuit is still there. 

But we would recommend that you take this with a pinch of salt..because some very good-looking and successful men have reported that they receive maybe one or two messages from ladies a week. 

Two messages a week is what they like to call an ‘’amazing number of messages’’. 

And now comes the real part. How do you use this to find your potential partner? If you have spotted a profile that you really like, it’s best to drop him a friendly message today. 

If you wait around too long, you’re leaving room for advantage to women on the hunt.

2. The Nature of First Messages 

Probably the biggest turn-off for women on online dating sites is the quality and nature of messages. Plain, cookie-cutter messages with no substance to them are the norm and it usually never works. 

So what’s the case for women? Luckily for men, the quality of messages is of far better quality. It’s no secret that women usually pour in more effort, so this should come as no shock to you. 

This is also where the real dating app inequality lies; men received well-thought-out and crafted messages from confident women. While women usually log on to their dating profile only to find the most random of messages from men who probably didn’t give this a second thought.

But what does that mean for you? Tougher competition. Yes, ladies, you need to bring your A-game on once you spot a Tinder profile that you really like. Don’t just talk about how attractive the guy’s profile picture is, add a splash of what really appeals to you. 

For example, you can talk about any common interests or hobbies, or maybe a similar profession. Mostly, men really appreciate women keeping it real and honest. So just tell him what you are feeling and you’ll have a fair shot. 


3. Lower Response Rates For Men 

This one is probably a no-brainer and you saw it coming. The response rate of messages for men is usually much less compared to women. But if you are a decent woman who’s generally put together, you will have an amazing response rate from men. 

Unfortunately, men, even the best of the herd, don’t have a good response rate. This means that men can pour their hearts into a message, but it would probably get overlooked by a woman due to an overflowing inbox. 

And when men do get responses, it's usually after quite a while. It takes days, weeks, or sometimes even months for a woman to get back to a man on a dating site. This is usually also one of the reasons why men reach out to so many women at once….the ‘conversion rate’ is pretty low. 

So effectively, as a lady, this means that if a man responds to you swiftly it's not because he is too ‘desperate’. Since men don’t have an overflowing inbox like you, his being responsive is just standard. 

And for the good news bit…if a man responds quickly, it could also mean that he sees potential, a romantic partner in you so keep your fingers crossed. 


So what’s the bottom line? Online dating is different for men and women. While there are shared online dating experiences for both genders, men do experience different dynamics. 

Understanding what a man’s online dating experience is like will help you stand in his shoes and approach him effectively. So if you have finally a man who might just be the one, don’t shy away from dropping him a heartfelt message. This could be your day. 

Or if you’re waiting for a man to respond…keep your hopes up. Because they almost always do, unless they have dropped using the application altogether.
