What should I be expecting from OKCupid? Assume my profile is just fine.

I'm a thirty-something single man in Seattle. I've only started using OKCupid like... yesterday. Let's assume for the sake of argument that my profile is good, with decent photos and well-written prose that accurately conveys who I am and what I'm looking for. What are your tips or tricks for maximizing the potential for meeting someone special? For example: Should I only be sending messages to women that I have over a 90% match with? Should I always respond right away if someone writes back (or miraculously writes to me out of the blue)? Should my initial message be a simple couple of paragraphs asking questions about things they wrote in their profile? What worked or didn't work for you?
I really should just relax, right?
