The last time I got a "direct and honest" message, it was a guy telling me I look like I don't get laid much and should find a tutor. It's one of my favorite messages for how ridiculous it is though. (Not the same guys)
For the sake of my blog, I thought it would be interesting to see what
would happen. In the first minute, it was up to 900 people. Outside of "promote me", if I put up a
new photo, I would get more messages and about the same amount of views in a short amount of time, so I
didn't really need it.
Would I do it again? No, probably not.
I tried it again and it was a COMPLETELY different result. I think they changed the format. In the original version, I think you weren't able to see who the "2,231" people were. This time, they show little photos of the profiles and if you click a ton of them, you'll get your money's worth. I did it for a third time without clicking the profile pictures and got zero messages, so clicking the photos means the most. (And no, Okcupid didn't pay me to say this.)
60 messages and almost 200 views? I'd say it is totally worth the $2.00 I paid.
I received a message from a guy and when I saw his profile, I instantly thought, "Wow, this is a really bad profile. I'm getting PUA vibes." I Googled a portion of his profile and what do you know? It gives a list of a TON of profiles (not his). This really is one of the worst things you can do on your profile. It gives nothing about how you really are, just that you hate people and have no personality.
