A very high percentage of the time, i get responses from women. My trick is to provoke (but not in a hostile way) a response by asking them about their profile and such.
But after a few message exchanges it fizzles out. I use humour, ask them about their hobbies/interests and stuff, but it doesn't get anywhere.
Is there something I'm doing wrong? I think my profile is OK, and I don't have any bad photos.
