Sample dating site messages

Today I received the following messages on a dating site:

"Would you be up for a 3sum?"

"Hi beautiful" (this person had no picture or personal information)

"I thought I would have heard from you by now" (followed by a copy and paste of their previous message)

It's not all doom and gloom. I like life.  But it is difficult to see any merit whatsoever in these messages.  Firstly, if you are going to invite someone to have a threesome, spell it correctly!  Secondly, whilst telling someone they are beautiful is quite lovely, surely you can't expect a reply without offering them a picture or personal information.  Finally, the third message is fairly confrontational in my opinion.  It also suggests expectation.  In addition, the copy and paste of their previous message is not only a tad lazy, it's also rather odd.  Are these approaches really going to work?  No, they are not.

On the plus side, dating site interaction is providing useful writing fodder and offers a worrying insight into the human psyche.
