I still haven't been having much luck with my OKCupid profile
. Any thoughts regarding my profile? Or regarding pictures (do I need better pictures or take pictures differently; should I swap my default pic; etc)?
By the way, for a while, I had my default picture the one where I'm laughing at my goofball cousin. I recently changed it to my current one where I'm wearing my fraternity jacket at the zoo. No significant difference in my profile views or OKCupid success.
The way that I normally initiate a conversation is by finding something interesting on a woman's profile, and then asking her about it. Here are some example initiation attempts I've made:
"How's it going? It's awesome that you love adventure and travel. It's always interesting to explore, or see different lifestyles. I definitely have wanderlust. Where are some places you've been?"
"How's it going? You mention that you're going to school for your bachelor's in nursing... I'm curious, what draws you to that major?"
"How's it going? You mention that you like hiking. I just picked up on that hobby a couple months ago. Where are some placed you've been? "
More than half the time, they don't even check out my page. And the ones that do still don't respond to my message.
I've been on this website for 7 months. To date, I've had a real conversations with only two women. Really starting to feel like I'm wasting my time.
Any suggestions that may improve my OKCupid success?
