Online dating lame

Has anyone else ever experienced a similar situation in online dating?

If you want to exchange numbers in the first message, what will you expect to do on the first date?

Editor's note: Brenna Ehrlich and Andrea Bartz are the sarcastic brains behind humor blog and book "Stuff Hipsters Hate."

Think of something more interesting to say, for God’s sake. “I have a girlfriend/I am married, but …” She is a blow-up doll name Trixie?

After a month of only getting two messages from men that were not my type, and receiving no response from any of my "matches" (there had to be over 40 at that point), I enlisted feedback from my friends.
