The Secret Rules to Online Dating

I'm still looking for that someone who can converse with just a bit of intellect. Maybe online dating sites aren’t the place to look. “Do you Ride Motorcycles” waited the two days (as I guessed ) before responding to my question of , ”Where do you like to ride?” His reply was that he liked to do gardening

So I visualize him poppin’ wheelies with his motorcycle in his garden to turn over the soil instead of using a tiller.

When I asked “No Tattoos” , “On a scale of 1-10, how tolerant would you rate yourself of others’ thoughts and beliefs if they differ from your own?"  His reply,” Green eyes! Green eyes are my favorite.”

These are not isolated examples. It happens quite a bit. I make sure I do not ask a question in the body of a paragraph and if there is more than one question I even number it for them so they can see there is more than one question.

Is there another rule to online dating that I’m missing? The "Do not ask direct questions"  rule?
And if someone does ask a direct question are you supposed to  follow the "Be evasive or just reply with some random answer" rule?
