Internet dating is the Wild Wild West of modern romance. Once in awhile you get a conversation starter that is off-putting and not sure if it’s worth engaging or just ignoring. My friend asked if she should consider speaking with a guy whose initial response is “HRU?” Initially, I didn’t think this was a good conversation starter. I mean he sounded lazy and automated. Modern dating is different because we have all these dating apps that offer too many options (or too little?). That being said, in today’s dating age, should ladies be reading into abbreviated sentences or not? Women are a bit more analytical, which is why I’m curious to hear what men thought of this question.

STREET Q: If a guy’s initial response is “HRU,” should the girl respond or ignore? And why?

What are some good conversations starters? Love to hear from you in the comment below.
