(Now, that I can go out in the field with no problem I don't really have the patience for online game as much anymore (The first month into game I did a fair amount of online game with an absurd joking asshole profile that did a good deal better, but it's too bad because this style is closer to how I am naturally.)

    Anyway,

    I think this might depend on the area of the country in which you're located. My results have been sub par for what I'm use to and of the responses I've gotten all of them have been transplants.

    So far I've had 3 total respond (A 6, 6.5, and a 7). Two of the women messaged me after looking at my profile the other one I made first contact.

    On Plenty of Fish I've contacted 14 total and 7 of them have read the message and one has replied (the other contacted me first). Of the 7 who read the messages 3 just outright deleted them.

    On OK Cupid, set up the same way, plus one DHV statement, I've contacted 12 and had no replies. Although, I did have one contact me first, but it seems this wasn't due to the C&F profile, but the DHV statement (which doesn't usually seem to work online, so I'm scratching my head here).

    Other things to note. In the interests section I did add some very general interests and I have a few pics of myself, a social proof pic, and a pic doing something active. Is there anything specific you should or shouldn't include in the pics or interests section?
    Can you post a link to your profile and sample messages for analysis? Can't really know whats wrong till ppl see what you've been doing.

    Actually, I looked through the posts again and looked up his POF profile. He's rocking a few pics that make him look like a smart ass. Whereas mine just have me looking good. It's most likely a perceived congruence issue. I'll swap out a few pics for something better.

    Sorry for the premature post.

    EDIT: What about excessive God this and God that profiles, do you guys even bother? Oh, and what's with those profiles that are really close to everything you are, but then you can't get the girl to give you the time of day even though so much matches?

    I don't really bother with those if they don't pay attention, my attentions are very valuable and are better spent else where, and if you keep insisting then you come off as needy or attention seeking and that's not good.

    Yeah. I was just wondering if anyone knew why this happens. My only theory on the matter is commonalities are in the comfort zone domain and it's an issue of failing to spark attraction. Normally, this results in being put in the friend's zone, but online means a pass because she already has enough friends regardless of what it says she's looking for having.

    My POF response rate is up to 30% now. Funny how a little change can fix things.

    Now, I just need to find out where those 8's, 9's, and 10's are hiding online.

    Great stuff. Any advice now that POF makes you enter an Intent on your profile? Right now I have it at "looking for a relationship", but I dont want to seem like im taking this too seriously. Simultaneously i dont want to look incapable of having a relationship.

    You really only have two options out of the five they present you with, that's why there's a big gap between option 3 (which is the one you have) and option 4. I would suggest try have #3 for a while see how that goes, then try number 2 for a while and then at the end compare which you like better.

    Going back to something that was brought up earlier in this thread (running low on chicks to message), has anyone tried messaging someone who had previously not responded to a message of yours? Whether she stopped during a back-and-forth or didn't respond to your first message. Any rule for this (i.e. Don't do it)?

    Good to know how much leeway there is, if any.

    EDIT: Also, why select "no" for "Allow a user to see that I viewed their profile"?
