Your friend could have probably gotten an even better response rate with a less generic message but that takes a lot of time. I think it took my wife 6 months to friend me And in regards to your comments about age, I’d say that’s true online and off.

If you try online dating, you likely have questions: The cliché is that women get a ton of messages. I get a lot of messages, but I have no interest in 90% of them. Seriously, if you put anything sexual in an introductory message, I think you’re an asshol E.
The majority are boring, clearly copy/pasted, and do absolutely nothing to start a conversation. It’s hard enough to date someone who lives in a different borough of NYC! Maybe if you’re hilarious, gorgeous, AND bake macarons.
