It's a 'do as I say, not as I do'. Parents use it all the time.

Happie, I just tried it and you are spot on. First one up had a headline of "can any one smell old trout". A sense of humour at least.

Munters? Ouch that's cruel.... I must be lucky then because out of the forty suggestions on my match list, only four have left me thinking whaaa? On my chemistry list, I've mailed the top three on previous occasions anyway. Didn't get anywhere but hey, that's the game...

Dave - I googled that headline out of curiosity and it brought up an amusing POF forum thread from 2009. Shouldn't have done I know, but it made me smile. Almost as much as the "worst kissing experience" thread always does.

Tigger - you're probably right. What I don't get is that 95% of all the women who want to meet me, favourite me or message me are up to 30 years older than me, live in Wales and are seriously overweight. I mean, overweight enough for me not to get my arms around their upper arm if I met them. OK, not all, but enough.

What does that say about me? No answers thanks as a punch in the mouth often offends.

I like your way of thinking, I might just start saying hi instead of putting the effort in to try and get a response, the effort gets tedious when a response is rarely forthcoming

Op, you have received must be the Holy Grail of many people on here, acknowledgement from someone they just might end up kissing. A message, any message, is an open invitation for you to proceed to the next stage of the woo-ing process sent by someone with the same thoughts of romance and love on their minds as you have. Getting that response is something a great many men on here would give their eye teeth for. The fact that the message says only "Hi" matters not a single jot regardless of what a profile may or may not say.

A profile is nothing more than a CV submitted for a job as a boyfriend or girlfriend and just as few new employees in any business will ever live up to the letter of their CV's after they start work, so it is with people on here. If you wish to find yourself waking up next to someone you don't know yet, the best chance you have to do that is to answer each and every message, regardless of content, and treat it like the girl of your dreams has found you at last. My advice is to count your blessings for each and every message received and shout halleluja to the skies as I always do............HTH.............GP
