    Straight to the point..

    How do you start conversations with girls on POF?

    Don't want the typical "hi, how are you?"

    I'm not the typical guy wanting one night stands and all that stuff, just genuinely want to get to know them and see what happens.

    To hell if I know; I tried all sorts of sh*t to get a response, but got nothing. Honestly though, POF is perhaps *THE* worst dating platform out there, reason being is few people take it seriously, those that do are usually only looking for sex (even if they proclaim otherwise), and people's expectations are set so high that if you're not a 10/10 in appearance you're likely to get overlooked.

    That all said, you have the right idea. No bog standard messages. Find something in their profile/pics that stands out, and go in for a statement + question. Maybe you've visited the same country or enjoy the same sports, but there's usually something to bounce a conversation off. If their profile is crap don't make too much of an effort, just drop a message and move on.

    I agree and I advise to go with this advice as well. Well formulated, SpiritSharD.
