"Expecting" an answer just seems unrealistic - when so many seem to go unanswered. I could see sending a message "just because" a random thought occurred to me based on their profile and it amused me (and might amuse them).

For the record, PorcupineTree's message would have gotten my attention, amused me, and (if the profile was interesting to boot) gotten a reply. (It contains punctuation, humor and science trivia.) Then again, I am a science geek... (and am pretty un-gross-outable when it comes to bodily functions)

Me: poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" V-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (23+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (4+ yrs) and MrS's BFF
Lotus: "it's complicated"
SLeW: platonic girlfriend + BFF
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.
