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.Cane, I've tried your method here for about a week now, so it might be too early to tell. (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.)
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?
