We investigate how long you should wait for a reply when Dear eharmony, I have been chatting with one of my matches. Accept that dating online will involve some chasing. Or is it worse to actually see his name pop up in your inbox, only to read some brief words of rejection? I never played waiting games to avoid sounding desperate.
