How do you get her attention?

After being happily married for 20 years and then suddenly widowed, I am rusty when it comes to meeting new women. I find myself in a world that is very different, even alien, than what I had ever experienced. After all, coming of age in the 70's, everyone's attitude towards sex and relationships was so different, and instead of gradually flowing with the changes I find myself dropped in a world that seems to be the exact opposite.
The last time that I was looking to meet someone, the bar scene was today's on-line dating, or is it that today's internet is yesterday's bar? Either way you say it it is the same, I guess. Of course being by nature a very quiet and shy person, I was never that successful at the bar scene meeting women, and now it seems to be holding true at the internet also. So, the big question, the $64,000.00 question is, how do you get someone that you like to notice / talk to you? Am I that boring? I can't seem to write an email that has ever gotten a single response from a single female here. I know that this is a number game like sales, but while I don't do mass emails to thousands of members, I have emailed several women that interested me after reading their profile. What am I doing wrong, do I need to come up with some snappy pick up line?Do I lie? I don't know, but it seems that writing what you honestly think, and being honest and up front doesn't seem to work.
Well, I'm thru whining , but I do welcome any comments, especially from women to this. Thanks

Dave - really tricky esp on here.. statistics are stacked against you. All I can say is write proper emails.. don't have to be long.. refer to something personal in her profile if you can ... you could have the majority of it fairly similar but personalise it in some way to each person you mail.

Have to say though ... its bloody hard for everyone!!!
