Started it right, said something nice about her with a clever remark and got her attention. By the second or third message she realized I was mental

If they answer, are you supposed to reply? I'm never sure whether they're actually interested.

Sometimes people just don't keep the conversation up and it stops. You can only talk about how good/bad it's going for you so long. Eventually you have to move on to something else and sometimes people don't have enough initiative to do that.

Your picture sorta made me think this was one of those twisted riddles. I only go for women that have an attention span too short to prevent them from being easily distracted by shiny objects...like taller, richer men with faster porches than the one I own (lousy Z series)

I suggest that you cover yourself with blue food colouring, instead of red.

 

You know, so you look like you're in a band. Chicks dig guys in a band.

They die because you were less interesting than the half a dozen other guys she was talking to.

(Then again, that's if you are a straight male, going by your profile pic, you're almost certainly gay - you look like something out of the cover of a Frankie Goes to Hollywood Album...)

^^ and/or after the first couple of attention-grabbing messages you realize you don't have as much in common with the other person as you imagined, or you find out they can't spell.

Because most conversations are like a much shorter, much faster, version of what happens in real life with most people: There's an initial attraction/appeal, but it quickly dies after both parties (or at least one of them) realize they really don't have much in common other than both being from planet earth and liking the basic things most humans like, such as eating, sleeping, etc...

I suppose it's not much different to having a conversation in real life, except the real-time conversation with "really incompatible" people is harder to get away from, because the body language cues are more noticeable.

Thanks for your comments guys/gals, I'd like to add that I posted this topic not because this frequently happens to me, but rather because It's something I see others asking on a regular basis.

Please, continue to share your thoughts and experiences, but unlike your assumptions - I'm not having a problem with conversing with others. Although, it's funny to hear why you think I am :)

1. Maybe they did a Google search on you and discovered your deepest, darkest secrets... (ie: the background check turned out that you are featured on thedirty.com or something similar).  Kind of like this poor fool http://thedirty.com/2011/04/andy-antonio-giovanni-2/ (whom I have the misfortune of actually knowing in real life by the way; I also can't stop laughing every time I see his mug shot on there). 

2.  Either that or you said something really, really stupid that turned her off and made her lose interest in you.

because people message expecting, feeling entitled to, a conversation just magically happening with out any thought or effort. you have to think of INTERESTING things to talk about. several things. what may be interesting to you may not be to others. maybe i'm a sports fanatic, and you couldn't care less. maybe you're all into music and i just kinda listen to the radio. it doesn't mean were incompatible as people, but often i find folks send some really generic bland thing that i send a really generic bland response to, and thats it. if they had put forth some effort, so would i have, and i think that holds true across the board.

There are few people who are interesting and even fewer who will be genuinely interested in you.  

 

Finding someone who carries both traits takes a lot of time, and you're also on the internet, where societal expectations are moot.

Why do most "conversations" die after 1 or 2 messages?

Because many people admittedly will ignore match and profile data and go by the picture only, attempting to turn physical attraction into more than what it is. After those people talk a short while, they realize there is nothing else to build on.
