My experience with OKCupid has been somewhat frustrating. What can I do to improve my profile?

I joined OKC about four weeks ago. I have messaged approximately 60 women, and about 7 have responded. I've gone out with 2 of those who responded, but there wasn't a real spark with either one.
Is this normal? I understand this is a numbers game, but a 10% response rate seems like a poor return for the amount of effort to put into this.
So with that said, I feel like there's something up with my profile and/or pictures. Women will visit my profile after reading the message I send them, but there is almost never a response.
My messages are usually a pithy sentence followed by a question acknowledging one of their interests. I keep the initial message very short. Generally I follow the suggestions in this thread
So fellow askmefites, is there something I need to improve on my profile?
