So I've got an OkCupid success story. This girl had in her "You should message me if" section that I should message her if I thought we'd be friends. And I totally thought we'd be friends. So I messaged her. And we've been talking. And it turns out that she's a PPKer! I was messaging j-dub!

I just don't get online dating. I've been getting interested messages from people and it doesn't matter how I reply; they don't respond back. I'm of the opinion that I'd rather meet up and find out about someone rather than exchange a bunch of messages back and forth. So I've emailed a couple of the interested guys about meeting up for coffee or a drink, and they don't reply back. So I changed my tactic and started sending chatty emails and theyre sill not replying. what the fizzle. Why bother emailing me if you don't want to communicate or meet? It's a dating website, not a penpals one.

Haha, that's awesome!


That's really fun! I've messaged a few people I realize part of the way through that I've either met or seen in real life. Kind of crazy (no clicking, though, sigh). I need to update my pictures and edit what I say. Anyone willing to look at my profile and tell me what to do better??

A really cute girl who's apparently a 99% match sent me a message. I want to respond but maybe right now I shouldn't? Also, she's vegan so for all I know she might read this which would be pretty embarrassing.

i've encountered this same thing as well and it's immensely frustrating. i've even exchanged quite a number of really awesome messages with people and when it came to actually meeting in person, i didn't hear another word. it's very disappointing. i suppose the only thing i could say is just be patient? the guy i'm currently dating, i mostly just agreed to go out with him because he was so willing to exchange messages and once we got a sense of one another, he asked me out.

I got a message from a complete charmer who was complaining about my having viewed his profile (which wasn't even deliberate) without writing to him. This was followed by another message about three minutes later. Upon checking this guy's questions I found that he thinks the man should be the head of the household, abortion should be illegal, and that there are circumstances under which someone is obligated to have sex (who the hell answers yes to that?). Aaaaand blocked!

Why, why, why are people who are 20% matches with me message me?!

I have scandal for you guys. One of my friends just got dumped and she's super upset. These guys were gonna get married and everything and he changed drastically through out the relationship. Total scumbag, totally full of himself, and he's going out of his way to look like he's "over her". Within one day of breaking up, this forker is on okcupid. How do I know? I see his ugly mug checking out my profile. Ugh.

I looked at your profile lillianp! But I'm not good at offering feedback, it looks good to me!

The piece I wrote for Autostraddle about okcupid should be going up any day now...I hope...I'll totally link it here. Also I have still been seeing the flaky intense anti-western medicine artist girl, even though I am super wary after what happened Saturday...we'll see.

Ya'll can totally critique/check out me too if you like. But I've stopped looking for guys through it for a bit, I have enough I'm 'working on' in real life right now (some of which I met through here though).

Under the spoiler. I don't why, but I felt like putting it in there.

Had an awesome date that ended up lasting almost nine hours. With in the first 30 minutes we had already kissed. We spent most of the next day together too, there was lots of making out. The next morning i felt sad, like im not ready to move on after my breakup. My heart not healed. Wes skyped yesterday we talked for 3 hours, both of us were in tears. We both share we like the other, but both have healing hearts. Its confusing for me. But we're still gonna spend time with eachother, nothing exclusive, and just see what happens. So weird, so nice to open up to eachother, made me feel very close, but sad that its in these odd circumstances :(.

I responded shortly after posting that! No reply to my reply to whatever.

So I'm not insane, it actually is you! How cool that you're writing for AS, and I can't wait to read the article on OKC!

August 31st I was busy packing and I sent a stupid "Packing is the most boring thing ever. Please recommend ways to make it less boring!" to a random person in a far away city with no expectation of a response. And, if I did get a response, no expectation of meeting them ever. But apparently they're visiting my current neighbourhood today so we're spontaneously getting coffee at a place which, it turns out, is a mutually beloved Toronto coffee place. Craziness. Probably just a platonic internet meetup, but still cool because friends are awesome.
