;)"You mention 90% response but you don't mention what type of response, lol Catchy lines are great if they're half way believable, I get some that are quite funny and we both know it's bull, but cute.
But I don't think poor, lonely, desperate but cute would send me in paroxysms of joy, more the opposite.
After all, who the hell wants to grow old w/ a 'stick in the mud' thinker when wit and humor have their way of invigorating our perspectives ..sometimes our souls. My first two relationships off this site were with older women.
They went straight from the hellos to the "Goodnight", if you know what I mean.
If I read what all the girls wrote "I would go insane". But, at some point, I give up and just use a plain catchy line.
Amazingly, no matter how much reading I do, no matter how personalized my first email is most of those girls ignore me????
Was it appearance, or did you read the profile and come across a common bond? Come to think of it - that's why you get responses - because gals like me defend their reasons to use online. Laughter is a good quality, it helps when you're getting to know someone.
you being a complete stranger and all, this works really well!
I think alot of men depend on catchy opening lines.
They go for the guy that can make them laugh, is assertive to the point of being to obnoxious most other guys looking on.
The women on here may say they are looking for substance but that is just not the case, a guy on here has much better chances acting like a complete dumb ass and being funny.
In reality - it's a godsend to all the shy gals who aren't into the night life scene.
