How to initiate contact on a dating site
: A man will jump over a lot of hurdles to sleep with a woman that is hotter than himself, or at least, hotter than the other girls he's slept with.
I will go as far as to say that you are denying yourself the only reliable indication of his interest.
Women are forever trying to figure out a man's intentions by reading between the lines of texts, interpreting things he said, or things he didn't.
This is usually too difficult to warrant the effort it takes, but it is entirely the wrong approach for another reason: there are all kinds of men that are willing and able to lie their way into a woman's pants - yes, even yours.
If you find yourself having difficulty determining a man's level of interest because "first he said X, but then he said Y," or even if you know exactly what he is saying and are sure he is interested, stop yourself.
What a man says is the worst possible indicator of his interest: you need to pay attention to what he does.
