    What's up with that... he swiped right first, and when I matched him and messaged "rawr", he said "shut up". I get the post-right-swipe regret/ignore, cuz I do that too, but why be rude? My attitude when I do that is almost apologetic lol. Was my greeting rude? Just wondering, cuz the second guy I said "rawr ;)" to said "oh"

    Some guys get tired of the silly messages. It's not your fault. Maybe you caught him on a bad day.

    I've encountered some guys who use the phrase "shut up" as an expression of mock-disbelief and approval. I don't get it though. icon_rolleyes.gif

    They seem to be from the souf

    generally on Tindr, it's better to start with actual sentences before resorting to animal sounds :p

    (not that I've had much of a track record on there myself)

    Direct, ENGLISH language conversations are tough enough....why introduce another layer of mud into the mix with the ignorant euphemisms, animal noises and colloquialisms that get lost in translation between points A and B, as well as generations, cultures, etc?...

    Sounds like you have run into some pretty bad responders. If I got the "rawr ;)" I'd probably say something along the lines of "And here I thought all the dinosaurs died off with the attractive guys on Tindr, good to see both of my thoughts were wrong ;)"

    What time did you message them? My phone is super loud when I get a message, if I'm trying to sleep I usually won't respond.

    Some guys are just jerks, especially on apps like Tinder, where they can be as mean as they want to one guy just because... They probably see there's tons more they can try to get. I don't understand it, but hey, there's better guys out there. I've found those rude guys as well. Some don't even bother responding.

    Don't feel bad about it, just ignore it. Maybe try sending actual words and he'll respond.

    Yeah that was really rude of him, but I understand some guys getting tired of silly greetings. I get them a lot too, but a lot of times I just ignore them or I'll just say thnx. I think the best way to start a conversation if you are interested is saying "Hello, how's it going? :-)" or something along those lines. icon_biggrin.gif

    Usually if someone matches me first and doesn't message me, I assume he changed his mind and I don't message him, unless he's really cute and I bank on the possibility that he's simply too shy... then I start with "matching and not messaging?? what bottom behavior is this??" lol
