Do guys have a standard or preference when messaging girls or is it out of desperation like 'I'll message 10 and hopefully get 2 replys?'
- I message girls I'm attracted to (I have high standards)Vote A
- I message average looking girls ( more likely to get a reply)Vote B
- I'm desperate, just need a reply at this pointVote C

Men do suffer from a low reply rate, so many wind up spamming messages just to get a reply and hopefully *a* date. According to the article here...
... on average men get one reply in 25 messages sent while women get one reply in 5. That's based on Are You Interested's numbers, but from what I've read the numbers are similar elsewhere.
I'm more discerning. I only message women I believe I could see myself with based on their pics, profile, and interests. I have never gotten a reply. :P1
