I've been back online trying my best to message guys. I'm finding most of my messages go unanswered. I know that that's basically online dating in a nutshell and that I should just keep trying. But what should I do to get more guys to take a chance on me?
I have plenty of pictures up, so it's not that I have none.
Guys what makes you want to talk to a girl online? Anything that I should include in my profile to make me more approachable online?
Ladies, do you have any tricks for getting guys to message you?

Most unanswered is normal.
Are you getting a message back like 1/4 of the time, or way less?
Make sure your pictures are accurate... but good. If they're just selfies or cellphone snaps, find that friend of yours who is in to photography to take some good SLR shots in makeup with natural light.1

I get 30-40 msgs everyday on pof.
I don't write much about myself on my profile.
I keep it super short describing my personality/myself and that's it I don't try to explain myself there. People tend to not read long ass introduction.. I mean that will help them get to know you better but unless they're completely attracted to you, no guy will spend his time reading the whole essay.
And picture is very very important.
Let's face it. Guys pay +80% attention to girls pictures. Her career, education come wayyy later, majority of them even careless. They have to like your pictures first before anything.
Put pictures of you in makeup, hair done nicely. Lighting is important too pictures with good lighting look way much better. show them picture of you smiling, having fun at bars, restaurants, parks, traveling like show them how you enjoy your life, give them some happy positive vibes.1
