Valentines Day is coming up, it’s a new year, and I figured I would full on into this online dating thing to see what happens. I signed up for OkCupid.com after my friend Kyle (@KyleHD on Twitter) showed me their iPhone app.
So far I’ve sent out 185 messages (on OKCupid and more on Match.com), and gotten 7 replies. One creepy old men and the following 6 replies; I like to call these rejections, but well here is my problem. WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU STILL CHECKING YOUR EMAILS ON AN ONLINE DATING SITE IF YOU ARE IN A RELATIONSHIP??? On top of that, why even bother write back? Just be like the other 178 douchebags and ignore my email completely.
Don’t make me all excited that I have a new message notification on my iPhone only to find out you are in a committed relationship…or worse, on an ONLINE DATING SITE AND NOT LOOKING FOR COMMITMENT…WTF? If you want a hookup go to Adam4Adam or Gay.com or something…Jesus.
Also, I’ve been on Match.com 5 months, and 5 days. I have yet to get a single email, reply, wink, phone call request, anything. I sent out tons of messages every month on that site as well….nada. If I didn’t have Nick/Tuck coming up, I honestly don’t even know what I would have to live for.
(BTW side note: Should this post be titled Online Dating… given it hasn’t yielded a single date?)
Here are the rest of the responses from OKCupid:
