I believe that most men understand women will not initiate first contact or ask for a date. The problem with this traditional approach to dating in the online world is that the online world is geared for actively participating, two-way communication.
If you want dating success in the online world, you will have to at least initiate some form of communication. Posting attractive photos and writing a captivating profile is a passive form of communication.
It is the brave few that muster the courage to actually send a message consisting of more than two sentences. This direct and active form of communication grabs my attention
and creates intrigue.
I do my best to reply to the brave few who take this route and would encourage more women to do it.
You can still leave the "asking out" part for the man to do.
