Even if you followed all of that tips and put a real effort to make everything right, there is still a chance that the person you like won't respond. That may happen for whatever reason, and the first thing you should remember is you shouldn't take it too personal. You may be a truly interesting companion and a good person too, but your hair color doesn't match someone's preferences, or you're just not "a favourite type". Some things just don't depend on us. Don't be offended and don't try to send messages again and again to know the reason, if someone is not interested in talking to you. Just keep moving.
Anyway, there is a lot of fish in the sea, and your love is still waiting for you. So don't give up!
