Oh, and this one was quite amusing for a first message: "Hi, do you have a driving licence? If so, do you mind if I ask a favour?"

Yeah, sure, I'm going to give a ride to some stranger who just happened to ask me.

Default A message I sent

Well, here is a message which I sent to one woman who said she, ”enjoyed the simple things in life like the way the air smells when it rains.”

Now I should make it clear, I wrote this in pure humor and not expectant of any reply.

”So you enjoy the way the air smells when it rains? Well, technically, it's how the air doesn't smell.

When it rains, dust, dander, and odor particulates are cleaned from the air by the falling water droplets. This reduces the amount of ”smell interference” from multiple odors. Thus you get an amplified sense of what remains in the air, meaning ”fresh air.”

Gross fact: Because of this amplified sense, this is why farts smell worse in the shower.”

Why would you send a first message 'not expectant of any reply'?
And if I were that woman, I would not think that was funny.

True, true. But I got a smile out of it. And as it seems, so did she.

Her reply:

”haha! first time any1 started off with a fart joke! =P”

Different people respond in different ways. I'm just happy she got a little kick out of it.

Honestly, I never expect anyone to reply on OKCupid, even those who say they respond frequently.

"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)

Very interesting. I'm also pretty un-gross-outable (great word!) but the mentioning of farts in a first message would not amuse me at all! Well like PorcupineTree said, that just goes to show that people respond and react differently, the recipient of the message seemed to take it pretty well

Yeah, that message wouldn't have amused or attracted me at all, either!
