Well, if you are messaging any woman who catchs your eye without regard to any common interests or life experiences (age, education, religion, whatever), then you're not going to get a lot of responses. After all, they're probably going to look at your profile and think "Why the **** did this guy message me?" If you swing at every pitch, you're going to have a low batting average.

Good God, your analogy sucks. This isn't baseball. It's not, "three stikes and you're out". In this game, you swing at every pitch until you "hit it" (pun intended).

Are you ever right about anything?

Re: Online dating thread

Here's an OKC example from back in May when I first started using this:




ME: After a rigorous brief review of your profile it seems that we both enjoy running marathons daily and swimming with polar bears, looking forward to our trip to Paris in a hot air balloon.

Her: U so need to share whatever your on bc that plan frickin rocks

Me: I'm in the parking lot testing the balloon right now,pack your bags although you don't need much,flip flops and a hat for the sun.

her: Flip flops it is, heels wouldnt work, should I grab the beer.. Btw will we have phone service? Sent from the OkCupid app

me: no phones,cant you live without facebook for a few weeks? lol YES grab the beer,I like Stella,I'll get m&ms and icecream.

her: Wasnt worried bout FB, I have peeps who would call fbi, u know.. No m&m's gotta grab skittles, then we're set... Lets get it...Sent from the OkCupid app

me: You seem cool I'm glad we started talking. Hopefully you're not actually a serial killer in real life but if you are I'm fast so I'll just run

her: You can run, but im an excellent shot.. I might give ya a head start..lol.. Dont think they let serial killers do what I do, but u never know.. Hahaha u have a great sense of humor, im sarcastic like crazy, so its refreshing.. Sent from the OkCupid app

me: Sure,I'll bring you 16x20" poster of me,you can throw darts at it lol. Seriously now,i agree,they are evil,thats how they build Vegas. I used to play poker online for a living so I'm pretty good with nrs,odds etc.

her: I stay far away from casinos.. They love me.. Haha damnit I have to go cook, im starving..Sent from the OkCupid app

me: So listen,let's meet up sometimes ,have a couple cocktails with cute little umbrellas and we can talk more about the evil casinos conspiracy.

her: Cute umbrellas? Hmmm sounds fun.. Lol.. Will u be the one who takes up half the parking lot w ur hot air balloon? Sent from the OkCupid app

Next time I lock up a date or at least a long convo I will post here. I can say right now they'll be the complete opposite of what OP and BL are doing. Then again, I'm not looking for the types of girls they are either. The grammar makes me want to stick a sickle in my eyes.

Also looks like OP posted his phone # by accident, send in the clowns!

despite your aforementioned overuse of played out pua schtick, this is actually a very, very good conversation. excellent job of opening, transitioning off of the opener, having fun/playful conversation, building comfort by sprinkling in some 'real' conversation about your life, then getting the number. perfectly done imo.

this type of conversation is soooooo different from what all the other toolbags on the site who are messaging her on there are saying that shes just naturally gonna be interested in you and wanna find out more about you.

wtf is wrong with you?

The point is that randomly messaging any woman you find remotely attractive without regard for anything else is going to lead to a lower percentage of responses (contact) than being selective and messaging people who actually interest you.

I think the point is that percentage of responses is a lot less important than the absolute number of responses. Getting a response from 10 out of 100 people is better than getting a response from 5 out of 10 people.

Sure, but the poster was wondering why he was getting so few (almost none) responses. Sending messages to very young women who are 10 years younger than you and have nothing in common with you is one very plausible explanation.

Yes, his main problem is he is not completely comfortable with lying yet. So he will still be eclipsed by other guys who tell bolder lies, which are make them more attractive.

How am I doing? Well, let's change that to what I'm doing. I just came back inside to get a drink of water. Bout to head back out in a second to continue inflating the balloon. Go ahead and start packing your bags, you won't need much, flip flops, a hat for the sun, and if you have any cheer leading outfits, make sure to bring those.

Don't worry, I mean, does it really matter if we fall madly in love with each other during our trip, or before our trip? We're splitting hairs here.

No falling madly in-love lol

Roundguy, are you disagreeing that if you message any woman, you will get a lower percentage of responses? It seems like you are saying that instead, the absolute number of responses is more important.

So instead of "This is stupid", what you meant was "This is correct."

Garcia, the history is that this is like a baseball game, three strikes, you're out. It's not.

Swing at every pitch. Percentage of hits is irrelevant.

I don't send messages to females I don't seem to share at least one similar thing in common with. I mean usually its that one interest I hit em with in the first message. Also I'm not only sending to 22yo's. My search criteria is quite wide if you ask me, 22-50. But I'm not gonna be sending messages to 30 somethings with graduate degrees. I'm still in my 20s in my head and have the baby face to match. Have you seen the average 30 something female on POF?
