I've been on and off OKCupid for about a year now and just got back into it. Apparently I'm horrible at making a profile or opening online because I'm rarely getting any replies and a bunch of visitors.
Here's my profile: on ok cupid under soilworkerMIA
I deleted a lot of stuff because a lack of results. I feel like cocky funny is really who I am but I'm not good at displaying it online.
As for openers I've tried everything, canned openers, cocky funny teasing, using mutual interests to assume rapport.
Here's some I've used recently, all with no replies but they visited:
(me on her music tastes) "melodic death metal huh? my favorite band is soilwork and I just saw killswitch engage last month over in Stroudsburg."
(her going to the same school as me)"Im guessing you went to northern lehigh right? What year did you graduate?"
"omg this site says were like a total match. heres my heart please dont break it. <3<3<3 :P"
"gotta love a girl whocan drive stick you seem like youre decently cool"
"ZOMG a chick who's into metal marry me!!! haha just kiddin. I'm about to go see killswitch engage and shadows fall tonight so it's ironic that I read your profile, (or destiny if you believe that sh1t). Have you been to any concerts lately?"
