Re: She messages first? What to reply with?
Whoa! Sarcasm needs to be playful, that's just straight up shutting her down. Sarcasm has NO place in online dating during the first few messages unless you have really mastered it. It WILL back fire and you WILL lose a chance to learn something more valuable than "Ok, don't use sarcasm".

Let me give you some examples from my recent inbox of women who messaged ME first:
Her [Referencing my "career"]: Zombie Hunter eh? Must be fun..
Me: It is kinda fun. It's tiring when I'm the best at what I do though. Any idea how I can wipe off the blood and unwind?
She went straight into telling me that she can massage and clean up messed pretty well. Went better than expected! =)
Her [New girl, similar opener]: Catch any zombies lately? Your Mexico pic is crazy!
ME: Yeah my pic sums up my personality pretty well lol. By the way, your interests are pretty kick ass! Hot yoga or just regular yoga?
I catch lots of zombies. I see a lot of them roaming around [Her town] so even I don't go there. You're not one of them are you?!
Here I referenced her profile and used it to continue conversation. Simple and it works!
In the two messages, the women simply found something fun about my profile and used it in a message. Try and throw things into your profile that women can easily pick up and use as hooks to open on you.
