Studies show women are less likely to reply then men. Primarily because they are overwhelmed by texts from friends, family, dating sites, work, etc. So I am glad to see this. I have always used my own method, two tries over a few days and then I move on. I understand timing, getting busy, emergencies and all, but if someone is SERIOUSLY interested in making a connection they will respond politely and indicate there availability. Otherwise I won't waste my time or yours if you are not ready. Its about confidence and respect for my soul and yours.

Dating and politics. It's a hot topic when it comes to matters of the heart. A POF survey shows women are less tolerant of differing politics than men.
