I Was Challenged to Try Something New...Game On, OK Cupid!

My fellow blogger, Great(ish) Expectations, took some time to write a bit of advice on the whole Mr. Ballsy situation and she recommended (albeit in passing) that I join OK Cupid.  The original intent of this blog was to chronicle the ups and downs of dating and trying to find love...and to also accept dares and try new things.  BUT I haven't really done anything crazy since I signed up for the Millionaire Matchmaker. (fail)

SO- I took her advice and I signed up for OK Cupid.

So far the highlights are that it is free and it made me legitimately laugh OUT loud all night.  This could be a new guilty pleasure like reading InTouch or Life&Style magazines...nothing to put too much faith into, but it sure passes the time!

I had to answer questions about everything from politics to education to family values...but there were some hilarious/irrelevant questions peppered in there.  A few of my favorites included:
- "Do you believe in dinosaurs?" - I said YES and that it was mandatory for the other person to also say YES. Really??  Is this something couples fight about?
- "Would you ever consider a serious, long term relationship between three people?" - I said NO, duh!  Three can keep a relationship if two of them are dead...or something like that.
- "If your partner had a sexual fantasy that you could not fulfill for anatomical reasons, would you encourage them to pursue this fantasy if it involved sex with another?" - What in the Fuckety Fuck? I said NO, of course....but is that really something I need to be thinking about when finding someone to date and potentially fall in love with?
- "Does No mean No?" - And in the options it actually said, "NO- people never turn me down."  HEH!?! Well, I said that No ALWAYS means no and that it was mandatory for my partner to agree..."I'll have the Soup Du Jour with a side of date rape?" No WAY, JOSE!

Other notably awkward questions involved appropriate punishment for rape, belief in suicide, if big girls have more fun, and if I would ever date someone who grows weed in their backyard.  AMAZING!

I also learned a lot about myself when ranking people in the "QuickMatch" setting.  This feature essentially allows you to rapidly look through profiles and rank them 1-5stars based on first impressions (pictures and/or self made profile).  Everyone that you rate 4 or 5 stars is saved in a special mystery box and if they like you, too, it will email you or some shit.  ANYWHO- this is where I learned two very important things about myself:
1) I am a sucker for a foreign accent
2) I am going to hell

I rated guys 4 or 5 stars for the following reasons tonight:
- From France
- Owns every season of Gilmore Girls (I am not sure if this is SEXY, but totally intriguing)
- 6'5"
- Cute dog
- Dresses well
- And maybe like 2 that I just genuinely liked what they had to say in their profile

I rated guys with only 1 Star/Skipped them for the following reasons:
- Listed "holding hands" as a top interest
- Having children
- Paraplegic (Hell, Party of 1- yes I know!)
- Talked about "knocking someone up and moving into a trailer" in his ABOUT ME section
- Having a picture of his mom in his profile picture
- Soldiers (yes- I support our troops...but I just can't get into a relationship with one...its either because of the long distance or the "trained killer" thing...)
- Looked like he was wearing lip gloss
- People with "mug shot" type pictures

OTHER FUN FACT??  Apparently I need to move. 
As it turns out, I live in the WORST possible state to find a perfect match.

  1. Lool I see you're into french men; I don't mean to burst your bubble but french men sometimes are like a little bitch and I should know because I live with them. They get upset over lost shampoo like Ross in Friends, spend more time in the bathroom like 2 hours SERIOUSLY and hit on anything that might resemble boobs; EVEN MAN BOOBS! But I'm just saying you know...;)

  2. With your "best states" matching options, I am a little concerned - all states with high NRA membership populations, ergo, high on the independent military/militia types. Yikes.

  3. Hahaha! That site is sooo funny I know... You know how you can look to see who has been looking at your profile? Well there was this one guy who honestly looked like a serial killer sociopath, and I showed this girl at my work and it made her shudder... The next day he messaged me commenting on one of my favorite movies (There will be blood) and saying how brutal and great the ending was... I was sooo creeped out! I kinda wanna meet him just to psychoanalyze... would that be wrong?

  4. I am a total supporter of meeting the creepiest people on there just to ask them "WTF, Dude?" Here's what you need to accomplish this- a friend who is never more than 20ft away with a cellphone and the numbers 911 already dialed in the phone. HAHA!

    Seriously- I am considering going out with a guy who is still in college because I miss it so much AND he hit on me....AND i have always wanted to be a cougar (since my 24th bday)! Would that be wrong?
