    Even though I send messages to girls, I never seem to get many responses back. I think it's down to one of two things:

    - My message
    - My bio on my profile.

    I was wandering if anyone with any experience/success on it could help me out. This is my opening line:

    "Hey I'm X, I'm psychic. You are blah, like blah, blah and blah... cool huh?"

    The "blah's" come from things on her profile. What is wrong with that!? It's funny and shows that I've read what she's put but put it back to her in a different way then what she probably gets all the time.

    This is my bio:

    "Ok.. the truth is, I can't do it any more, I cant just go around messing around. Quite frankly I'm 23 and it's boring. I've been unfairly branded a b*stard, mainly by myself and possibly a bit of a ladies man, mainly... er ... by myself too.

    But now I'd really just like a nice girlfriend, who likes dancing like a mong in front of me, watching DVDs on a couch, playing with my hair, giving me a stupid name and also repeatedly drags me into the bedroom till I get annoyed by it.

    If you are in fact any of those things, you are allowed to get in touch with me, not touch me, get in touch with me
    ."

    It's funny, shows I'm laid back and can take a joke and like to have fun.

    Where am I going wrong guys?

    Would love any help. Thanks

    I've met thirteen women from a mix of POF and OkCupid. My reply rate is about 60%.

    Unless you're incredibly witty restrict the profile information to just a few of your interests. Don't say 'no fatties/single Mums' or such like. Less information = Less likelihood of offputingness.

    The message doesn't really matter unless it's insane or offensive sounding. If they find your pictures attractive they'll reply.

    If you're the Asian guy in the profile that someone posted (I'm pretty asleep like) then try to deAsian yourself a bit, put some flattering pics up, get buff and go for women your own age man ffs.

    Also, this makes you come across like a douche. This is one of your criteria:

    Must not have messaged users looking for intimate encounters or sex.

    Yet you say about yourself:
    Not Single and Not Looking
    pliants isn't seeking a relationship or any kind of commitment


    About me
    i’d really just like a nice girlfriend


    Your bio is riddled with contradictions. Do you want a relationship or not? Make that clear. If you don't, then take that BS out and uncheck the Must not have messaged users looking for intimate encounters or sex box

    You come across like you don't know what you want with a bad attitude.

    Are you 31, 28 or 23? I just can't work it out.

    This opening paragraph needs a complete rewrite as it would just put the reader off before they get to any of the (not terrible) parts of profile body.

    Who the f**k is this pilants guy!?

    That's not me!

    I'm clearly not 31 or 28 because my profile on here shows I'm 23!

    Obviously this weirdo has copied my bio...

    Yea. Obviously. *cough*

    Think you need to decide who you are before making a profile!

    ALWAYS attack a girl. Nothing major. Don't call her a fat whore. Just attack her though.

    No point saying "You're fit" when they get that 500 times a day.

    I mean why would "pliants" not copy OP's profile considering OP's success rate?
