    Default Insane online dating idea...I just need some advice on how to tweak it

    I'll give you the background on how I came up with this idea and then I'll jump right into the advice I need.

    I use plentyoffish every so often when I'm bored and the other day I got kind of tired of having to send out X number of messages in order to get Y number of replies.

    Everyone who's been around the block knows how online game works in terms of males and females. Females receive hundreds of messages per day without even doing anything and males have to look at hundreds of profiles and send out messages custom tailored to each chick in order to get like a 10-30% response rate. Well I figured F* that, I don't have that kind of time to be sitting around writing messages when I know that not every message will be responded to.

    I thought about how I could turn the tables and be able to log into my account and just have messages automatically appear in my inbox the same way that chicks do. I used my programming experience to be able to scrape all of the relevant profiles (age, sex, proximity, etc.) and then email them automatically.

    I did a test run of 100 messages and within less than an hour I already have a 6% response rate. I'm sure the number will be much higher when the responses roll in during the next few days and I'll keep you all up to date.

    Now there are 2 drawbacks to my method.
    1. The messages cannot be easily custom tailored
    2. I am emailing basically EVERYONE with my criteria regardless of their looks, so there are definitely some beasts.

    Those two things aren't as bad as they seem because I can randomly rotate messages so that I have about 5 or 10 different messages going out (not everyone will get an identical message). I also specify "body type" so at least any beasts aren't fat.

    Advice that I need:
    I need to come up with a handful of good generic responses that don't sound like they're generic. I tried the rainbow ruse (cold reading technique) and the responses so far have ranged from neutral to positive. I did, however, get one "What are you talking about?" lol. What do you guys think?

    Thanks!

    This day and age, a lot of people are online. Girls tend to flock to these free online dating sites because they don't want to hassle with drunk guys at a bar slobbing all over them while they are there just enjoying themselves.

    Online however is a slightly different game than the in person game.
    It isn't a waste of time. It's just more drawn out. You have to do the initial message, then work the game to build up to the meet. Then from the meet you may have to work at kissing closers/dating/sleeping with her.

    There are a plethora of books written on online dating. I have a buddy who actually wrote one. His pen name is Joshua Pompey, if you are interested.

    Anyway. good luck buddy.

    Uhm. I disagree.

    When I first moved to NYC I did online dating for about 5 weeks. I stopped doing it because, frankly it became kinda boring.

    I think I got laid on the first date about 90% of the time from online dating, but I stopped doing it because it was more fun to go out and meet women in person - maybe it was more of a challenge to me.

    Online dating is GREAT if you are not getting the results you want, meeting women in the real world.

    I completely agree. As I stated before, it's a different ball park, but it's for some people. It is kind of boring because the excitement of the "chase" isn't there as it is if you go out and prowl the nights lol. But, for some people it's easier.

    If you're a programmer target key words in profiles to generate a pre-determined response. So if a profile has camping, hiking, beach and fires you have one response. If it has clubs, shoes, manicures and fast cars you have another one. Other than that you need to put in the effort up front and it will pay off in the end.

    Personally, for me, an HB is an HB is an HB.

    Doesn't matter if you meet them at work, online, at a club, arranged marriage, Speed-dating, through a friend, etc. etc.

    I would never grow bored with online dating if it consistently lead to great results. But there are problems with online dating:

    1) First off - we all know there are many people that do not represent themselves honestly. Women with old/fake photographs etc.

    2) Competition - Yes, I know by following many books on how to distinguish yourself from the crowd, you can set yourself apart from 90% of the other boring emails that women receive. However, some women are still going to cut you off based on any number of criteria. I still think boring guys that look like Brad Pitt get laid more often than interesting guys that look like Woody Allen.
