When it comes to netspeak, people don't respond well, so if you write something like "I realy luv wat u r saying," there's a good chance the other person will drop you for the three Rs (this still boggles my mind).
DONT TALK ABOUT THAT ASS
As a man, if you make any physical compliments using words like "sexy, beautiful" and "hot," women don't like that. And as a woman, if you make physical compliments towards a man, he'll assume you're only in it for sex (not part of the survey, just my own theory).
USE A DIFFERENT GREETING
"Hi, hey, hello," and "holla" don't work. Use something a little juicier like "How's it going?" or "What's up" to get the conversation started.
DONT ASK TO MEET
If you ask someone to meet up, give their email address or cell number, there's a good chance they'll split. The whole point of this exercise is to meet someone anonymously at first and if you start asking to meet off the bat, they'll think you're up to something.
TALK ABOUT SPECIFIC INTERESTS
If you enjoy long walks, no one cares really. But if you like getting tattoos while beat up zombies, people will perk up and listen.
GUYS NEED TO SELF-DEPRECATE
Unfortunate but true, women like to "fix" men and if men use words like "awkward" or "apologize" women feel compelled to meet with them and teach them why they need to change about themselves (again, my theory).
LET GOD GO
I know that eHarmony is teeming with radical Christians who love the Lord and all his greatness, but on OKCupid, the opposite is true. Atheists do the best on the site, and those who mention God, not so much. Funnily enough, "Allah," which literally means "God" in Arabic, is acceptable. Go figure.
