Many of them view my profile when I send a message, so I know they read it, but rarely do they respond. I have fairly decent pics, but I wonder if I'm just not that attractive at all? Usually i'll send a well thought out message that asks about something written in their profile, but this still doesn't help.

Being Online sometimes isn't all that Fine, @rwd324, for it seems you almost have to "Weigh" every Word that you Say.
Perhaps it isn't your Pix at all, but How you Approach and even Broach a First Time Impression Saying. Say something Simple like a "Hi, how are you?" Tell her own Profile Pix looks Great.
With Changing things a Bit for you with another Bite, this "Horse of another color" deal Could pan out better for you in the Long Run in Getting to know someone or at least Getting them To... Respond.
It's Sad to Say but even a word such as "Riding" can be a Misunderstanding Today.
Good luck. xx1

Either keep being patient or call it quits. Because there are Absolutely NO guarantees whatsoever that they will ever respond to you because they get bombarded with large volumes messages from other guys that aren't of quality that they may start ignoring them all or start deleting them all entirely. Other times profiles are simply fake and fabricated or dummy profiles or catfish profiles, and this is especially on the free online dating websites.
Therefore don't soley rely on the internet for dating. Do Not put all of your eggs in a single basket.
Go out there in public and work up your gut to talk to women and girls. Malls and Shopping Centers, Libraries, Gyms, Groceries Stores, Coffee Shops, best to talk to groups of 2 or 3 of them at the same time. Don't be so nervous and just be chill about it. And don't focus so much on shit like rejection, since that's completely unavoidable.
Learn the whole concept of game and picking them up, shit like instant dates, being spontaneous. Invite them to go eat or drink or do something fun with cha, you have to give them an incentive and create an incentive and interest for them to go chill and hang out with you or dine out with right there on the spot.
Day game is ideal for beginners compared to try to pickup ladies at the bars or nightclubs, dance clubs, etc., besides night game is mostly for hook ups anyway, and if that's not what your looking for learn about daygame how to have and hold interesting conversations and capture the attention of women or girls during the day. Exchange numbers, etc.
It won't be easy, but like I said earlier, Don't Put All Of Your Eggs In A Single Basket.4
What Experts Said
It's not that you are not attractive it's that they have already gotten that message a hundred times. The point of a message is to get their attention not take a genuine interest in some stranger you have never met. Save those for an actual date. I would of said, Hey I will make you a deal, I will go out on a date with you if you pick me up on your horse. This message expires in 24 hours. The goal is to make them laugh for a few seconds... if you get a reply with a LOL or HA HA HA you are in. Try it. Don't be afraid to ruffle some feathers. You need to be different.7
