Some women will think of the writer of the profiles below as weird, but…
ideally you shouldn’t be interested in “most” women anyway, but you should be targeting those women with your profile that you believe you will get along and will have a connection – whether you are looking for a short-term dating, a lifetime partnership or anything in between: “About Me: I would hate to bore you by telling you how wonderful I am by attaching to my name a bunch of flattering adjectives.
Users on Ok Cupid exchange about 4 million messages a day.
Of course, they do so with a special purpose — dating — but the interface provides no specific prompt and enforces no limit on what or how much anyone types.
I frequently hear men express envy over what they imagine women’s Ok Cupid inboxes look like.
In their imagination, we are bombarded with eloquent, respectful gentlemen who ask incisive questions to get to know us and make us feel good about ourselves.(If you are a woman who's been on Ok Cupid, obviously, you just scoffed.)It’s time to clear things up.
Or even better, Wikipedia it and ask me an informed question.
Ok Cupid users who opine on subjects they know nothing about exude an unlikely combination of insecurity and arrogance.And in terms of effect, it seems readers have adapted.The best messages, the ones that get the highest response rate, are now only 40 to 60 characters By considering only messages of a certain length, and then asking how many seconds the message took to compose, we can get a sense of how much revision and effort translates into better results.So once and for all, here are the 23 types of messages most straight women (or gay women being trolled) have to deal with on Ok Cupid. They’d might as well write “I didn’t read your profile” or “I’m casting a super wide net that you just happen to be caught in.”This approach is especially obvious when they accidentally paste the message twice.If someone wants to know about my job or field of study, I'd rather they just ask me.So, why not start with a bad stuff – I am impulsive and restless at times, I can’t kill a fly, I cried twice like a girl when I watched “Notebook,” I cuss too often, and stay up way too late way too often. And what made you weak in your knees from joy and pleasure?
