Are you using the same writing style and casual humor that you have in your profile ? I would focus more on a good match by doing an advanced search and then messaging themwith your own writing style and ideas. So there should be a good description of you on your profile. With that noted , your first message reasonably could be: "Hi, I've seen your profile and I would like to meet you. They can read your profile, and respond with a "Yes" or "No".

Lets meet Sunday at Mc Tavish coffee pub at pm for one hour. So there should be a good description of you on your profile. With that noted , your first message reasonably could be:"Hi, I've seen your profile and I would like to meet you.
On the other hand, a paste job or one-liner will not be welcomed - unless you are very clever, very very good looking, or obviously filthy rich, from your profile (and I'll pass on guessing where you fall on that scale with women). -sowrite The way I write depends on the profile of the girl but generally I have less humor in the message than what's on the profile. I never really evaluated what I was doing but I take this approach as well and it seams to work for me. If she has tattoo's I'll ask her to meet me at a tattoo convention. I saw your profile and loved the fact that your into art. Check out my profile and if I peek your interest let know and it's a date. Woman with a one sentence profile don't get a response from me unless I really think they are hot. Thought you were smoking, would love to know a little more about you.
Cowboy is correct that the note is only a small part of the picture. My car starting might only 10% depend on my starter and battery working, but they have to be in decent shape for much to happen. Don't send the message and assume they will just show up though. Their's an art exhibit in our area I've been meaning to check out. If I don’t get a response I don’t take it personal, for all I know she doesn’t date guys who are not catholic but her profile say’s nothing so what can you do. I avoid coffee/tea dates unless there is nothing else to do.
They seem to have this floating mentality that there's always going to be somthing better on the next click. Don't discuss chess moves and linguistics lolunless you are looking for that in a woman.

No matter what anyone tells you, getting a response is 99% to do with your photos. If you go to too much effort and don't see any positive results you'll get very demoralised very quickly.So if I come across a profile of a girl who seems really interesting, should I tell her what my name is and ask her hers? I also tried two approaches in messages: one is to write a long description about myself, past, future goals, miscellaneous, and also sent very brief one-liners. As this is my first time ever on a dating site, I don't know if girls want a lengthy introduction or don't have the time and prefer one sentence.1. Make sure based on what she's writing that she'd be open to you messaging her (if there's any indication).2. If she doesn't like your photos / fancy you then it makes no difference at all what you write. At the risk of sounding a cynic, don't set your sights too high on internet dating.People get dates without pictures, with bad pictures, etc., so decide who your audience is and promote yourself, as you are, to them.From your original post its sounds like you tried two extremes. Writing a novel about yourself can look odd or desperate, and the vast majority won't reply anyway so why waste your time on a monologue.
