The best way to receive more responses is to make your self description exciting, interesting and most importantly truthful. Be open about yourself, let people know what's really important to you, share your thoughts and feelings about life. Profiles with photographs receive 7 TIMES more E-mails than a profile with no picture (let face it you would do the same wouldn't you !) TIP: The more you write the better it will stand out, one liners simply don't work, eg: "I like to have fun and enjoy myself" not exactly exciting is it? Look at your description as if you were browsing and ask yourself if it would catch your eye! Also do not use capital letters as on the internet this is classed as shouting.
