Why Your Message Isn’t Getting a Response

Ross Felix, a commenter on David Evan’s blog, Online Dating Insider, brought up an excellent point: 15 mil users / 1.32 million premium members = 91% of the people can’t reply to your email without upgrading their membership.

That’s right, if you didn’t get a response to the last message you sent out to another member, don’t take it personally: 91% of the users are unable to respond to you. Wow. I’m surprised it’s that high of a rate.

Maybe I’m surprised, because I know that if you try to get winks on first, and limit the energy you expend when you do write messages on, you will have much better odds. There may be a small percentage of members who can write you back, but Match is still the best dating site, IMO.
