Ok Cupid’s data shows that men receive replies to about 20-50% of their online dating messages, depending on their attractiveness — and I’m going to go out on a limb and say most would like to move that number up to 100%.While sometimes it’s your profile that makes women think twice, I can also attest that your message itself can kill your chances of a response.Sent about 50 emails to girls on there (with personalized info about what I saw on their profiles). - if a chick doesn't have a paid account, she can't reply -- try IMing instead if she's online - be more strategic about what you write.

Average response rate from women of the same age is about 4 percent.
