We have to see how words & actions fit over time, at least over a month or two, which I feel was certainly one of the other lessons here.

Internet dating may suck for men, but from talking to my sister it seems far worse for women. Sure, you get messages, but many of them are one-line demands for sex, impolite or abusive, or just weird. I have received very few messages on OKC (none in my geographical or age range, either) and never had any answers to my messages, but at least all the messages I got were polite and intriguing.

It's not a dreadful message, however he is not actually coming across that nicely to me, either - and I work with a much more limited dating pool compared to the women he's likely writing (given that he is composed 30 of them and that his profile is fairly generic and focused on dating younger women, Iwill say there is good chances that he is writing really desirable women in their own mid-twenties instead of zeroing in on women likely to like him as much as he likes them).
So, when men become rude and insulting it is the fault of the women? How dare they not respond to any or all messages (which as all posters have stated are much higher in amount than messages males receive). Every girl is expected by law to react to every guy who posts to her, whether that be sexist, whether it be a one word sentence, and never say anything impolite (The definition of impolite online including not reacting, reacting and politely refusing the offer, responding late, reacting.....pretty much any answer which is not "Do me now!" Can bring in women a tirade of abuse online).

And perhaps, just possibly, in50 messages there is going to be a message from a guy who read her profile, and wrote a message that represents this, and is precisely the type of man she would wish to really go.
