It's interesting that different people react differently to the response rate. Some prefer low rates, some prefer high rate. I think I prefer those with lower rates now. They are more selective and when you get a response, it's more likely to be genuine interest. I've had responses from guys with over 80% rate who seem so interested to meet, then flake at the last hour, literally, and never got to see them. I would say messaging a guy with low rate might get you butt hurt now but messaging a guy with high rate would get you butt hurt later (not in a good way, haha). Messaging a guy with high rate might get you butt hurt now, in the good way, if you want to meet immediately for a quickie.
