1st message online dating example
Anyone who’s ever dated online has had that moment – the blinking cursor, the empty text box, the racing heart, and the brain so temporarily empty, it has tumbleweed running through it. Make yourself a soothing cup of tea, and we’ll talk about how to do it right.
This is basic, but sometimes daters forget that the first thing a match will do when they receive an interesting message is click on the profile of the person who sent it.
If you are not getting replies to much it's because you are not good looking enough in your photo's [women tend to flock to the top 20% of guys looks wise on online dating sites and largely ignore the rest] I've seen many experiments showing this, and even done a few myself. I don't look at guys photos until after talking for a while. I have had some unwelcome surprises (like realising after talking to a guy for a bit that he was my mate's cheating ex-fiancé).
"Tell me about yourself" sounds more like an interview question. Within a few hours we'd moved off POF to another messenger so we could share screenshots of the game while we played. Comments on appearance from either side didn't come into it until a few days had passed if I recall correctly. Within a few hours we'd moved off POF to another messenger so we could share screenshots of the game while we played.

My success on POF is next to zero but a lot higher on OKC, must be the percentage match on there that people tend to look at too.
I don't know what to say as my first message on online dating. Never open with a physical compliment unless you can come up with something very smooth/original.
