The rules for online dating amazon
Employers are expected to close the loop when someone sends them business correspondence, which is what a job application is.
With online dating, there’s more of a cultural norm (among most people, at least) that if you’re not interested, there’s no need to respond to say that; it’s okay to just delete the message.
Given that, it’s just the smarter option for women who don’t want to field a bunch of hostile and insulting messages not to respond to people to say “thanks but I don’t think we’re the right match.” Now, it’s certainly true that some job applicants also respond to rejection with hostility, but (a) they’re far less numerous than in online dating, (b) the intensity of the hostility seems to be lower, and (c) it’s part of the job in that situation to deal with the occasional whacked out response to rejection.
This means that you have to consider your market, what you’re looking for and what makes you, specifically, attractive to others.
OKCupid, for example, is structured more heavily towards casual dating and hooking up.
It takes very little to accidentally give the impression that you’re bitter and resentful and as we all know, there’s nothing that makes panties evaporate faster than complaining about how often you get stuck in the Friend Zone.
You have to treat your dating profile as an advertisement; you are, after all, selling yourself to others.
