for every one awesome person there's a whoooooooooole bunch of either flakes/crassholes or people who are probably totally nice just signed up as a whim, and so kind of forget about it.

the date surfaced this morning, we are still on for tonight. Also, a cute vegan guy asked me out, we might get together next week. He seems very interesting.

I just got a message from some dude on the other side of the country, raving about how we are a 96% match so we're "basically the same person", and he suggested that we meet up. I look at his profile and it's blank and almost none of our questions are answered the same. Sure dude, let's meet up. I'll book a flight right now. Great idea.

Yeah, I live a couple of blocks from people who are 99% matches...so....

I'm talking ice cream with an incredibly cute, seemingly charming lady and drinks with a fella who seems appealing, although I'm a bit less giddy on that front. Also, why is it that two women have asked me out for ice cream (the first one asked, then never contacted me again) and men invariably want to do drinks (my profile says message me if you want to drink beer or eat ice cream, so neither is out of left field) Do men on OkCupid secretly hate ice cream?

My profile clearly states that I don't drink, and I get asked out for drinks all the time.

I think most people just can't function in stressful and awkward situations (dates) without being buzzed.

Honestly, I sort of prefer having a drink in awkward social situations. I just think the gender divide is funny. And it has made me think when I meets woman I like, I should ask her out for ice cream. Women who like women like me like ice cream.

I never thought about an ice cream date, I will have to try to work that in sometime.

So my very first tinder date was last night, and I thought it went well. He was cute, I wanted to kiss him, he kissed me. Got a message tonight from the guy, saying he thought I was interesting and hot, but that it seemed to him I was trying to be into him and not feeling it. And good luck. The message was nice and friendly, but like he decided for me that I wasn't into him. OK. next.

Tomorrow night a drink with a techie guy.

What a totally odd thing to say to someone. Good luck with the next guy!

Yeah I thought so too. Last night I messaged back saying thanks, and that I was sorry I had given that impression, and maybe he knows something I don't know. And take care. Thinking that was the end.

This morning he comes back with "oh maybe I misinterpreted", to which I tell him I thought it was fun and he was attractive. He follows with, oh maybe we should get together again.

And then I decided to be honest, so I said I would go out with him again but I wished he'd just asked in the first place, and that he left me feeling like I'd had a kind brush off.

By now I'm not sure I do want to go out with him again...plus he gave me time to find more matches--I have plans with two of them! Ice cream Saturday afternoon, and drinks next week. Techie guy in a little while! Here we goooo!

Yeah, if you do go out with him again I say be careful, use him for a purpose if need be, but dude sounds like a mega drama queen.

Yep, I'd say tread with caution with that one.

My OKC guy has officially become OKC boyfriend. He's pretty great. Things are pretty great!

Aw, congratulations Ashley!

And Jill, I would definitely tread carefully with that guy. It seems really odd that he pre-emptively dumped himself, or whatever that was. I tend to think if it's not plain sailing at the beginning, it doesn't bode well.

Yep, agree. Two more dates upcoming this week, one with a vegan! Both are poly. Hopefully they both work out and I can be poly too :)

Couldn't it be that JillW's guy is just a bit insecure? Sounds kind of harsh to write him off because he didn't know for definite if he'd been a hit or she was just being polite, and was checking.

Well he did resurface, so now I'll probably go for a date 2.

Meanwhile! Last night met the cutest most friendly poly guy. There was smooches! And we're getting together again Sunday. My vegan date got postponed, still anticipating!

I'm meeting someone I've been chatting on and off with for a while on OKC for coffee this afternoon, but just as potential friends as, well, some good stuff has been happening elsewhere in my life :)

I went for coffee with an okc guy yesterday. I thought he'd stood me up for a bit but when I finally met up with him I kind of wished he had!! Boring.

GUYZ, no one ever messages me on OKC. At all! This always happens every time I come back to it! I think I am doing something wrong. I'm pretty sure I'm physically attractive. Also, pretty sure I don't write the most inane profiles ever?

Dude, that happens to me always! I thought it was just cuz there were so few queers in Long Island so I switched my city to Brooklyn and still NOTHING. what the fizzle? We're both cute as hell! Maybe people are just intimidated by our cuteness. I'll go with that.

Do you have a lot of really specific stuff people can message you about? A couple of my friends call these hooks. I get the most response from stuff that's a little tounge in cheek, too.

Ha! So my boyfriend (whom I met on okc 1.5 years ago) met a new girl some months ago, and we all went out together a few times (we are all open). I also met a guy 2 months ago and while the date was good, I didn't feel it much. But I thought he would be a good match for the girl my boyfriend was seeing, so I put them in touch, they chatted, met last weekend, and liked each other very much! A matchmaker, I am :-)

Mars, if I were a dude in Portland with just a slightly higher match percentage, I would message you. Babe. 100% (I am the woman w/ short really bleached hair from Denver who visited your profile).
I would use the pic of you in the cowboy hat w/ dog or with the cow as the main pic. Sometimes I use adorable animal companions as an excuse to message people.

Also, on the PPK, I get a sense of you being super funny and fun and someone I would want to hang out with. Your personality really shines through your writing here, and it doesn't do so quite as much on okc. I look at what you've written there and think, yep most likely we would get along. Geek out a little more about one or two of your favorite things: flowers, velvet, Ginnie, Star Trek (if you read my profile you will see i am not a star trek fan). Say something about one or two of those things that really invites people to respond. Make a joke or two, if you're inclined.

But seriously, babe.

Mars, I would totally go on a date or a friend-date with you just based on your profile! <3

I'm updating my profile now just for the heck of it. Oh look, I have a message already! It...just says "yes". That's the whole message. Just the word "yes". This person identifies themself as a straight male. Yes what??
