Openers response rate test on POF
I decided to do a test with some of the openers that others have posted on here, I sent out 5 of each opener below on pof, and then waited 48 hours. Here are the results:
Email #1 (response rate: 1 out of 5)
Do you want to play a game?
Email #2 (response rate: 2 out of 5)
jesus christ you are gorgeous! I just had to email you and introduce myself... my name is venice143, and I'm guessing that your name might be Angel since you look like one
Email #3 (response rate: 1 out of 5)
After a rigorously brief overview of your profile, I wanted to let you know I have already married and divorced you in my mind.
Thanks for all the wonderful imaginary memories... you will always have a special place in my heart.
p.s. You can keep the beach house in Florida as long as I can have the puppy and my CD's back.
Email #4 (response rate: 3 out of 5)
I have to be really honest and say that for the life of me couldn't find a woman on here who fit what I was looking for... until I came across your profile. To find a beautiful woman is one thing, but to find one with such a great and interesting personality... well, that's rare and I'm happy I found your profile. I'm just about to head out the door, but maybe we'll talk again sometime. Oh, before I forget I wanted to ask you what your favorite Alanis Morsette song is?
First one sounds a little creepy...like a serial killer or something.
Second one sounds too needy, you sound like an AFC who she receives compliments from every day.
Third is not too bad, shorten it a little, but otherwise good.
Fourth...its okay, a little on the "needy AFC" side but since there's a takeaway I guess that compensates.
The first email "do you want to play a game" does come off as creepy and I would not use it again. The second email "you're gorgeous" is too simular to emails girls receive everyday, I've had a recon account before and mostly it's just guys complimenting girls on there looks. The third email "married and divorced" is too confusing, because they either think what is he talking about or they get offended, but I do think that there is a good hook for girls who do get it, but those are few and far between. The fourth email "have to be honest" did the best I think because it came off as sincere, but I agree it is somewhat afc, however it did get the most replies out of the 4 openers I used.
Firstly, sending out 5 of each as a test is way too small of a pool. The results might give you an idea of what might work or not, but then again you can get the idea of what might work just by Reading them eg "do you want to play a game?" reminds me of the dude from saw.
Test each one on 50 chicks for much more accurate results. To do this, I'd set up a profile in a different city to where you live and whack the emails out. On pof they have a filter apparently for copy and paste mails so I'd change a word or bit of punctuation on every 5 emails. This should get past the filter.
Secondly, the response rate isn't everything. Some guys use messages that get a response, albeit a shit one like "yeah" "lol" or something equally crap, which gives you no room to work with. It's better to get a lower response rate, say 50%, but with all those girls into you, than a 90% response rate of which will lead no where.
go with the one that works BEST...AFC? who gives a fuck! do what works and that INCLUDES AFC behaviours

I think there's something sweet and endearing about email number 4......But in my opinion i would remove everything related to you thinking her profile is so great. and inject a take away with some humor.
Try something along these lines.

I'm just about to head out to jump into piles of leaves with her, maybe if you're cool I'll tell you all about it. :P
I've actually now been testing this myself, on okcupid and pof....so far 5 for 6. With a weird yet funny response. her response:" I wonder if this beautiful and interesting personality chick is cool enough to let you put it in her butt though? Good luck! "
get owned!!!!! hahahahaha
