That's certainly a valid argument but I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. I had a good experience with someone on here that started with "Hi how are you?" messages.
Oh ok well I guess it depends on who you ask. I like to know about a guy before I even talk to him, and the profile is a chance to do that. When I see a guy with no information at all, I assume he:
1. Doesn't really want to find anyone
2. Doesn't want to make an effort.
In most cases, it's been pretty much on the money. One or two haven't been that way, but that's not enough for me to spend time on any future blank profiles.
I just refuse to spend any more time on making first contact than they did.
They contact you first? I'm not clear on what you mean by this based on the OP.
Now as far as sending the second message - that was an experiment, as I said, specifically to prove the point.
Ok, I assumed this was about first time contacts...not people you've already established conversations with. Nevermind.
