From OKCupid:
How to write first contact messages in a way that will actually get you a response

Women have been saying these things for years. Maybe the addition of pretty graphs will finally get guys to listen?

I've been on OKC for years, I've followed all of these tips from day 1 without prompting, and my success rate there is still 0. Much like IRL.

I'm sorry. I know a few people who've had pretty mixed results with OKCupid - I just happened to see a link to that article on BoingBoing this morning.

I only met one interesting guy on OKC and he was married. :( But we did have a very nice e-mail and phone thing until I realized it was stupid folly.

OK, I'm a geek...

Or boring. I read "how to write first contact messages..." and immediately thought of the Voyager Golden Record and the Arecibo message.

So what would a first contact message intended for aliens look like if it was created according to these rules?
