Nugget O' the Day: A Lesson in Brevity

I hadn't been on OkCupid in a while so I logged in during my lunch break yesterday. In a matter of 6 minutes I had several messages. These are those messages: 

1. nice eyes ;)

2. hi how are you 

3. hello lovely

I would like to point out that these were not sent via the chat function of OkC but these were  messages crafted by three different men who clearly were so excited to make contact with me that they didn't even finish their thoughts and/or sentences.

With these amazingly interesting and intriguing initial messages it's a wonder why I'm still single. Look at all of these wonderfully articulate men at my fingertips! Oh what to do? How to respond?

1. Thanks.

2. Fine.

3. Goodbye.
