Dating just seemed…exhausting. When the ex-BF and I split a year ago, my plan was to add a few more cats to my collection and take up tennis and crocheting. And it worked. I learned to play tennis well enough to a doubles league, and I am the proud owner of a scarf I crocheted myself decided to postpone the cat influx.
Best of all, I took some trips with my kids, caught up with old friends, and tackled a stack of books that had been gathering dust on the nightstand. So after a friend raved about OkCupid, I decided to give the dating site a try. Nothing serious. I started the -up process on Sunday afternoon, right before heading out for a few hours. I had just enough time to pick a user name and a photo.
I came home to eight messages and 78 likes—all based on a fuzzy photo of me with my kids cropped out, my age, and my user name. Deep connections there. I added a few more pics and started answering the seemingly endless questions OkCupid asks to determine its matching algorithm. I answered about 30, and skipped at least a dozen. None of them had bothered to read my profile as far as I could tell.
From browsing the site, I saw plenty of guys with whom I had high match ratings, so why were all my so-called enemies the only ones I was hearing from? Turns out if you click like on the profile of someone who also likes you back, you get a little pop-up encouraging you to get in touch. I made a mental note to him. I also got a nice surprise. While clicking through profiles of men who were listed as a strong match, I came across a guy I recognized from college.
I scanned through his profile and we seemed to have a lot in common. He replied right away and we made a plan to meet for drinks a few days later. If I was going to do this dating thing, I wanted to give it a fair shot. Unlike the messages I was getting, I worked hard on mine to make them I hope amusing and relevant. Only the single dad wrote back. By the next day, I had racked up more than likes and 43 messages. Flattering, sure, but the shallowness and total lack of effort my admirers were putting forth was wearing on me. After getting a series of increasingly creepy messages from one gentleman, I decided to disable my profile for awhile.
