Quick background: I'm online dating, and I've been sending a bunch of messages. No replies. I look up all the tips for writing better messages, and I'm already hitting on all of them. Yet, no replies, ever.
The consensus is clear: I'm an ogre. My question to you is: how can I not be an ogre?

You're not an ogre, I swear. You've got great eyes and a bright smile, your skin looks great, and the light eye/dark hair combo is always a winner. But the thing is, women get a LOT of messages every day on dating sites, so even if they do like you, there's a good chance they're just not going to end up replying to you. I met my last boyfriend online and apparently he almost never got messages back, even though his profile was hilarious and his pictures were really really nice. Online dating is just shitty for guys.
What I'd recommend is getting a different hairstyle/haircut. To be totally honest, what you've got right now isn't too flattering. Check out some pictures of "nice guy hair" on Google Images or something and see if there's anything you like and think you could manage. Maybe get some more stylish clothes (again, do a google search for something like "nice guy clothes," spend some time looking for anything that might appeal to you). That should help give you a bit more of an edge.2
