If she doesn't answer at all after two messages, you should consider her not interested and let it go. That said, if she is at least acknoweldging your messages with the Smiley emote, she might be showing interest, but she's not a paid member. I would say, send her 3-4 short messages, and if she is interested enough, she'll get a membership and answer you. If she doesn't become a paid member and answer you after 3-4 short messages, move on, as she's not as invested as you deserve for your efforts. And yes, if there's something specific in her profile that piques your interest, tell her and/or ask her about it. It shows that you've taken the time to read her profile.

I personally prefer someone answer my interview questions or send me a message if we've never interacted in any other way. If we've bounced messages in the chat rooms or forums, I'd be open to emote or chat, though, but most generally, I'm not fond of empty emotes.

If we're talking "Close Encounters" type of first contact, I would prefer just about anything over being an involuntary "guest"! LOL.
I specifically meant Star Trek. But I will award you the bonus points as your answer is reasonable.

I prefer an email that is specifically addressed to moi. Second to that is the personal emote. I don't often respond to blank emotes as they require very little effort and indicate to me very little interest.

I dont chat. I'm almost exclusively using my iPhone to access CM.

Definitely!!
Her first thoughts when she gets a message is, Why is this person contacting ME? What does he think we have in common?
And every message you send must provide her a reason to respond: a question, something interesting about yourself, a lavish compliment (but don't get carried away!). There's nothing more frustrating than reading a long message and thinking, What in the world am I supposed to say to that?

I agree... and I believe this should work both ways.
