If you are one of those whose New Year's resolution is to find a special someone, or if you are already online and looking to connect with one (or more) of these newcomers, you will want to have a solid profile.Zoosk recently did a study of an anonymized sample of nearly 4,000 of their users, and discovered some strategies for how to improve your odds of receiving messages, and of getting replies to your messages.Seriously, your pictures are all a girl has to go on to determine whether or not you are an axe murderer/pedophile/stalker.Care about taking high quality shots and coming off as a put-together gentleman.Online solicitations, where no response need be made if there is no interest, are equivalent to the latter.
Therefore, I have made it my mission over the last year to really decipher the online dating code. Your only goal in the first message is to assure her that you’re a normal guy.
That said, here are the guidelines you want to follow for a successful first message: What I’m doing with my life“…I just like to rock out with my figurative cock out.” The first things people usually notice about me “are usually off the mark.
But mostly it’s that I am pretty unfiltered.” She says she has an attitude so I’m challenging her on that and poking fun.
So, we can see that women are much more selective than men when it comes to responding to messages.
Not exactly Nobel-quality findings here, but it's definitely interesting to see the exact levels of response.
