We'll e-mail back and forth for a week or two, but as soon as I mention anything about meeting for a drink or cup of coffee or anything, they tend to shy away. Not everyone I've met on here have been like that, but it seems the percentage is increasing. I have had people just disappear during the messaging stage but never once a meet up has been suggested. Sometimes I think some of the people posting in the forums are on a different site.
So I really don't know what to tell you - are you being pushy in some way about the meeting? People are flakey though just put it down to experience and move on. I can't say I've had that problem, a few I have just carried on conversations with, a couple seemed like they wanted to push it along faster and initiated messages everyday, so I went ahead and ask them out.
