Alan Parsons Project - Don't Answer Me

...'cause if you do, the shock of getting a reply might kill me.

After sending out a blizzard of emails over the last few days and getting one reply so far - and a quick reply at that, telling me she didn't think the chemistry was there* - I started wondering again about what it takes to get a reply. Considering that I write respectful emails and my reply rate is abysmally low, I gotta wonder - who's answering who?

So here's the question, or rather one for each gender. Note that quick replies count, as she has to open the email to send one, but winks and autoreplies do not.
Men: Approximately what percentage of emails you've sent have you gotten a reply to?
Women: Approximately what percentage of emails you receive do you reply to?

The results of this poll should shed a little light on the subject, and tell me if I'm doing something wrong, or if scarcity of replies is just a fact of A.F.F. life.

Thanks for your input all...

*P.S. How do you tell if the chemistry is right over the Internet?

UPDATE: OK, you guys are killin' me here. Two votes?? I guess you're taking the title literally, huh? Well, don't. Get your ass down here and vote or say something, would ya?
Men: I've received replies to less than 25% of my emails.
Men: 25 to 49%
Men: 50 to 74%
Men: 75% or more
Women: I've replied to less than 25% of emails I've received.
Women: 25 to 49%
Women: 50 to 74%
Women: 75% or more

I got over 150 emails in my inbox in less than 2 days. Needless to say, I don't have time to read them all. There needs to be a creative subject line or the email needs to be from someone I may have already chatted with. Emails that I have read and responded to usually included some evidence that they took the time to read my full profile. Also, I'm more likely to look at the emails that have tasteful pics on the profile. Seriously, how many cocks do really need to see in my inbox???
