The chances of someone replying to your messages are significantly higher if they've already shown interest in your profile.
Be selective. Filter your search by interests, hobbies, age, anything you like! The smaller the pool, the more likely you will find a match who truly suits you. Therefore making it far more likely you'll get a reply.
Stop playing this like its a numbers game. Love is not a numbers game!

Fortunately, hard work pays off. And you'll notice immediate improvements by following this strategy.
3. Use Icebreakers That Break The Mold
Do NOT write a cookie cutter message that you send out to 1000 people.
We REPEAT, do not write a cookie cutter message that you send out to 1000 people.
It is so obvious that these messages are canned. It stands out a mile.
Why? Because women see a different variant of the same message over and over and over.
Spend 5 - 10 minutes crafting a unique message that is specific to their profile.
1) Look for something unique about him/her in the profile.
2) Write something about it
3) Re-write it, making it funny
4) End with a question that they can't help but answer
5) Keep it short and sweet. Less is more.
And make yourself a promise right now that you will NEVER write a "Hey" message again.
