    I'm not 100% sure if Tim just kinda validated my point or not? :hair: LOL

    Let me say, there are obviously some awesome people on OKCupid, like anywhere else. You two are both awesome and each deserve someone wonderful. I'm telling ya though, looking at OKCupid, 80% of the female profiles read that way to me. They come off like very elaborate planed projections of themselves and so many of them are similar in that regard. I find it annoyingly competitive. It's added an elaborate first step to the dating process. It places the users in an awkward position of over-thinking before just saying hello. Technology is wonderful, the internet enabled Michelle and I to meet eventually marry and have a beautiful kid. I'm not saying I'm completely opposed to the idea of using the internet to locate a good date, I'm just saying that particular site does not impress me.

    I don't know...... maybe its the current generation of twenty somethings that I fail to understand, maybe its just being single in general that I have lost touch with. I'd accept those criticisms, they are likely fair. I'm just being honest, from the outside looking in, I don't envy you all, it's like the tools that are supposed to simplify things have only served to create an initial step for everyone to obsess over vs. just getting straight down to business and you know, actually talking to each other. It's difficult enough to know what you want when you are young and trying to figure it all out, the tools should help you narrow your search vs. giving your an impossibly large number of terrible options to weed through.

    I just re-read this
    "Look guys, I'm a prize, I'm brilliant, I read all the time, I enjoy eating all kinds of exotic hipster food, love expensive wine, I'm working on my second graduate degree, and I'd love for someone to take me places, travel the world with me and be my Prince (be good looking, funny, brilliant, financially better off than me)....But..... I really don't need a guy because I'm just so gosh darn independent and brilliant and sophisticated all by myself, but come on, be my Prince anyway, I'll likely talk down to you to make you feel unimportant because I'm a woman that has to let you know how unnecessary you are to validate my own independence, but you know, I'm awesome and I deserve a Prince that will want to take care of me anyway...." Insert cute image, possibly with a tasteful amount of cleavage, and wait for the suckers to line up!

    And I have to say, this is one of the best things you've ever written. ;D

    Skipped reading most of this thread. Just wanted to say that fuck I love OkCupid. I first talked to my current girlfriend through there after being introduced to her by a girl that I met through OKC (and went on a few dates with, but it was clear we were more friend-compatible than romantically compatible). She "introduced" us by sending us each others OKC profile links.

    Spoiler: been dating her now for almost 11 months. Just got back from our first joint vacation. Talk of moving in together as well as larger things.

    Thanks OKC.

    I met my wife back in the early 90s via a multiline BBS I use to run out of my house. I don't know if I could do it today though. On or offline dating seems to have become really complicated theses days.

    Fudge, I'm three messages in with this girl and I already told her that I hang out with furries. This is why I'm single.

    I'm just reading this thread for the first time and a couple things stand out to me.

    #1:

    eventually I'll commit to one if we can figure out how to make our independent lives work together.

    ^^^ THIS ^^^

    If you can't both be yourselves and fit together doing so, whoever doesn't get to be true to her/himself will initiate the breakup, in any of the various forms that initiating takes on.

    #2: I hope I'm not the only one who lol'd at Magic's 1 fitting into 0 comment.

    #3: Beard Attraction Syndrome comment by Jokke should become an article.

    Beard attraction should become someone's thesis.

    Last night I went on the first date with an aerial acrobat. I have decided not to call her until tomorrow. She has an unsettling obsession with her dog, but other than that she's very cool, and she speaks polish.

    Aerial acrobat that speaks Polish. My vote is yes. She sounds like fun! Maybe her dog is really awesome. :P

    Meph, you stand on the precipice of dating legend. "So guys, this one time I went out with a Polish Aerial Acrobat with a dog fetish..." DO EET, but The aerial acrobatics didn't happen without pictures....

    Ugh, my cousins all have dogs like that and they're all TERRIBLE. Except the one that they keep the hair short on. He's pretty cool.
