A lively takedown of pay dating sites on the OkCupid Blog–simultaneously demystifying the online dating process.
There is a negative correlation between the number of messages a man sends per day to the reply rate he gets.The more messages you send, the worse response rate you get. It’s not hard to see why this would be so. A rushed, unfocused message is bound to get a worse response than something you spend time on.
UPDATE: The takedown was taken down when Match.com acquired OK Cupid.
