looks like there's an interesting new dynamic when doing searches now, that describes the likelihood of someone responding to you. Surprisingly, it seemed practically all guy profiles I saw were labeled "replies often", whereas the majority of girls profiles I saw were labeled "replies selectively" or "very selectively"? Anyone care to agree or disagree with my observation? It may have been just the bracket of people I was looking at.

^^ My guess is that it's based on percentages. Replies often could be 75-100% of the time. Replies selectively could be 50-75% Very selectively could be 0-50%? Also no one is sure how far back this goes (replies throughout your entire OKCupid experience, replying last week, last month?) The goal is to get better conversations with those more likely to reply.

Ugh, mine says I reply "VERY SELECTIVELY" and I'm like... what?

This might have to do with the fact that I delete threads and then get a *new message* from someone and maybe it comes up as a new message, and sometimes I don't reply to THOSE?

I really don't know, because I reply to practically everyone...

Happy to be very selective :) (as of now).

Since a lto of guys seem to be hornier than chicks (I know, some chicks will disagree...) they tend to send more retarded messages that don't really require an actual response.So I agree.

Perhaps we're seeing 'weird results' because there aren't enough statistics yet. Give it about a week and we'll see who turns green... or red ;)

Also consider that some people might be getting an extremely large amount of messages and not have the time to reply to them all, could you be replying to ALL your messages if you receive thousands?

It is an interesting addition. I don't know what mine says but it could be "offensively selective." As far as guys versus girls, Idk, well I'm ridiculously, almost dysfunctionally selective. It must be biological. Anyway, I wonder if you guys ever got a message from a girl saying "hey hottie, would you like me to go down on you?" I ::actually:: got that exact one yesterday if you can believe it. I think that is why girls don't respond as often. Well actually, I lied, I did respond but it was "um... no."

My response would've been more along the lines "sure, just let me lace my vag with arsenic real quick..."

Maybe this speaks to the fact that women work harder than men. While all the men are playing on the net when they are supposed to be working, the women are actually doing their jobs. Thus, they have LESS overall TIME to reply to admirers!!

If I had a job where I could be on the net, I'd totally sneak okcupid and pacman time when it's going slow.

P.S. Moopt. Heeey baby! Want some tongue action??

Or maybe it's not that women work harder, but rather that women take so much longer to do everything than men do, and work is no exception.

Oops, can't say that, can I? That would be sexist! :O
