What's the usual success rate of getting replies to your emails? It's weird because sometimes even girls where the profiles match up perfectly won't reply.
I stay away from generic things in the emails and tend to focus on specific things on there's and maybe joke around or be witty.

I was talking to a male friend about online dating the other day. I told him that what matters on dating sites are pictures, the profiles aren't very important. It's sad but true. I've been on dating sites before and if I liked a guy's picture, I replied to his message. Without even taking a look at his profile. So I think the success rate depends mostly on the way you look and the sort of picture(s) you upload. The first message itself also isn't that important – as long as the girls like your looks. Of course, the first message shouldn't be a copy & paste thing or some stupid "hey how's it going" thing, and sending something personalised is better. But really, the picture is what matters most. To me anyway. I know it's shallow, but that's online dating.0
