It’s a guilty pleasure for myself and my colleagues.
They usually trade inappropriate pictures or messages amongst themselves, while categorically denying that they are even on the website.
However, where most of the conversation is fluff, I have known guys who are obsessed with how it all works. I also know that sadly, the “best of breed” girls, the “Perfect 10’s” of the world more than likely does not have a Ok Cupid profile.
They send hundreds of messages, they have systems for responses, and they always seem to focus on some minute flaw or detail as means of disqualification. I do not see the girls at the Merchandise Mart dressed to the nines checking their phones for guys on Ok Cupid. Due to the advent of Catfish (note: for those unfamiliar with the term, look up Manti Te’o), spam bots who want you to send them money to their online sex chat rooms, and just people in general who embellish their profiles to a point, I don’t really believe much I see online. I always look for profiles that have full body shots.
Not to worry, I have the snarky personality to back it all up. I’m not a dating expert by any means, but I do know enough to be dangerous.
Also, to my future partner, if you are reading this, I don’t mind talking about it. So without further ado, my first article will be about…Ok Cupid. Most of my young single friends have Ok Cupid profiles.
