Alright guys, I'm getting slammed on POF. So far I'm at less than a 10% success rate. I like to personalize each message for each profile, though with these results, and possibly the lack of wit I thought I had, I might switch to a template.
These are the messages I've sent in the last 3 or 4 days to girls. I just moved to NC from Northern Michigan. My profile would on average grab 3 messages a day up there from girls who said they loved it. However, now living in an area with 20 times the number of people, I'm lucky to get a message a week! And I had some help from T-Mal so I know the profile is pretty solid
Thought these might give you guys something to work with, either something to do or not to do. Some of them are obviously better than others, and reading over a few has got me wondering what I was thinking Like I said I haven't had much success but thought these could be of use. For times sake I'm not going to explain what was on each girl's profile, infer from them what you will. Hope they help!
Only one picture!? Your cute No response (Please forgive this one, Im getting worn out)
I'm just gonna go out on a limb here but I'm gonna say your ex-husband was a tatooed twig with the "southern" appeal of a confederate flag No response
I love how confident and assertive teachers are, no matter where you are your still always in teach mode, directing and guiding, even if it's the guy bagging your groceries at Wal-Mart. You just can't turn it off. No response
Hey there! I've ran across your profile a few times now and thought it about time to shoot you a message. I love that your a dancer! I've been known to slide a pretty sweet cupid shuffle. I don't usually like to brag, but when you got it, you got it. No response
You seem spunky and fun, and you share an obsession with pigs! I've been counting down the days until they start flying and I can tell everyone I told you so. No response

Netflix is so going in my interests! That and the fact that you suggest pool and a beer for a first date totally makes up for the fact that you lived in Ohio I love that your an HR person, i think it really takes a special, one of a kind, extraordinary type of person to be in that field... No response (Im in HR)
(She messaged first, saying profile made her smile) Haha, good, that's what it was supposed to do Beach, gym, tan, your just a regular Carolina girl aren't ya... Got a date set for tomorrow
I love your stance on being serious all the time as bad for your health. Laughing at all the stupid little things you do makes life so much easier. That and accepting how much of a goofball you might be. You know what I'm talking about.. (tongue face) No response
I don't know why but your profile cracked me up... It's okay to go to church for guys, you go for Jesus and he's a guy.
And see, I was going for a nice, short and sweet joke, but now I have to ruin it for your character limit. You may be getting better messages, but your crampin my style! (tongue face) (she had a character limit set for messages, to keep the creeps out!) 12 messages total, didnt reply to date request
I couldn't help noticing how intelligent and well rounded you seem... but that was before I read you were an Ohio State fan. And your from Michigan!! You'd get beat up for that where I'm from. 10 messages total, she stopped replying
It's definitely your old age, but don't worry it'll only get worse (tongue face) No response

You spelled quiet wrong... jk (tongue face) but seriously, you did. I like seeing that your from Canada, I'm from Northern Michigan and am still trying to break in this heat! It's like vacation all the time down here No response
