Holy crap, no wonder women don't reply to messages.
I wanted to test something, so I made a fake account on OkCupid of a female with three solid pictures (HB 7.5-8). In a 25 minute span, I already got 16 visitors and 12 messages. Most consist of "hi, how are you?, I like your profile (even though I hardly wrote anything) but I like your pics more!, etc. One even wrote to me as a 36 year old who's in an open marriage and is interested (I put the age as 19), lol. I did one good message so far, and another decent one (but the decent one came from a 42 year old that lives in Canada haha).
Point is, I can now see why girls don't reply to a hell of a lot of messages. So many of them are AFC types and uninspiring. Just sucks for other people who actually take the time to read a girl's profile and message about it. Even if you send a good message, it can get lost in that shuffle of mess, lol.
Always be honest with women. That's the true meaning of a PUA.
