    Gentlemen - This is what we are up against on POF...

    So I've been on POF for just over a year. Overall its been a good experience, though recently I'm finding chicks to be super flaky... i.e. get number then **** quickly falls apart, no texting/calling/dates arranged a week or 2 later/etc. Ummm, no...

    Anyway, my sister (no pics) was on POF last year for a bit, met a guy, they dated and broke up and she didn't go back on until a couple of days ago. She texted me and she was like "WTF, you were right about POF". I had told her that since the beginning of the year I had gotten a lot more responses/"meet me" because (I figure), it's the new year, people are looking for something new, "trying out" this online thing, etc...

    She said in the time that she logged on to reactivate her account and see what was new on the site (10 mins she figured), she received SIXTEEN MESSAGES from guys. In the couple of hours since she re-activated she had well over 3 pages (30+ I think) of messages and around that many "Meet me" things. Now, my sister is decent looking, doesn't workout, and is pretty cool girl. Her profile however is garbage (5-6 sentences, really giving nothing to work with, interests are all bands, etc). She said she didn't message any of them back and likely won't based on their messages.

    Either way, it goes to show...

    I wouldn't call her hot (even putting aside that she is my sister). I'd say a bit above average... She did say that the majority of messages that she skimmed through (a lot she didn't even read) were terrible.

    Of course, with that type of selection available it encourages hyper-selectivity and accordingly superficiality.

    It's not only bad enough that your average girl gets a few to a dozen or more messages per day, but 99.99% of all those messages are simply variations of "hey, what's up" and "hi, how are you?" It dilutes the whole effect of private messages. I bet most of them get tired of checking.

    This makes me rage.

    I can say without a shadow of a doubt I am a better catch than 95% of chicks on POF yet recieve 1 message every 2 weeks...if I'm lucky - and it's usually from a total man-beast with 3 kids who lives 100+ miles away.

    That makes me kind of think. I'm nothing but average but occassionaly have attractive (8/10s) message me back. I'm thinking it is because I usually put solid substance into the message. But on the same note, sometimes I send the stupidiest messages to good looking girls and they message me back.

    Fair enough, and that's the impression that I got from my sister. You need to have some substance, wit, and humour preferably related to her profile to at least have a chance.

    There, there bro... Everything will be ok... Do you have shirtless pics up (generally any girl with substance disregards any profile with them)? Is your profile decent? Grammatically correct? Funny?

    These things go a long way from what I've been told. Looks are part of it, but you have to stand out somehow...

    They all probably think you're funny/witty and are at least decently attractive (too them). I'm the same way, nothing special, but I've been told quite a few times that guys can't "flirt" on POF and that I'm funny. Meh...

    Maybe the one's you're getting back are the fake profiles...

    See, I have never believed in this POF **** or online dating. For one, it seems very insecure to need to meet women this way, two, its gay that anyone can message you something stupid, and 3, I already got facebook? WTF is the point of this?

    Any way, I got to hate brah. I am just saying but, one of my mates wheels like crazy and he told me pretty much the same as you said here, that its like fishing with dynomite. Tons of girls are aggressive on it but, the whole falking thing means, your chatting to much and not pulling enough.
