Nobody ever wants to write back? =(Page 4 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
Plenty of reasons. Many men here don't get many responses to their emails.

1. They get a lot of email.
2. Poorly written emails and profile.
3. Not seriously looking for a date. Just an ego boost.
4. Some women are too picky or have unreasonable expectations.

There are a lot of reasons for this ? first off you are competing with a lot of guys since you're in Toronto and it's really mostly about looks. These women ..the approachable sexy ones ( and yes I know there isn't alot of them on here ) get so busy with the thousand guys competing that you will become just another letter to sort through.
You need to be really creative when you are competing . Make yourself stand out ,

I thought it was funny one time I mailed this girl just to see if she was real ,( Just gorgeaus) , too nice to be in need of a date or had to be psycho or something. So I tried just the hi how are ya type thing , (Nothing it was unread/deleted )
Then I thought okay I'll ask her something about her profile ( read/deleted )
a few more times trying humor I was shot down again ( read/deleted )
Then I thought okay another approach.... I wrote in the mail header "$500"
and in the body of it I wrote wanna go out and have some fun ?
she wrote back with her MSN and asked me to add her :p
I thought to myself ...........Yup ......Just as I thought !

Which brings me to my point If it's too good to be true it is,
If you shoot too high looks wise in here you're fooling yourself ( Be realistic )
and if they appear like normal decent looking and yet still don't mail you back they simply have their reasons .

If you need to know why they don't want to talk to you all you have to do is persist. If they block you then you have a definitive "NO"
