A Guide to Writing the Most Generic OkCupid Profile Ever - Each OkCupid profile prompt is another chance to form a connection via a mutual interest.
A friend of mine recently signed up for OKCupid for those who might be unaware: an online dating site and was constantly telling me about all the bizarre and pathetic lines guys try to use on her via instant message. She would very blatantly shoot them down and yet they would continue to message her. I started thinking about it and had a thought: I wonder how far guys would go to get a date or a hook-up. And so, my OKCupid adventure began… I set up a profile using the picture of a cute girl I know. Everything mostly looks fine. Now comes the fun part: the bio. I wanted to make this so idiotic and unappealing that no one in their right mind would show interest in this girl. If you are hitting on her after reading her profile, you have no interest in anything intellectual whatsoever. This girl clearly lacks the ability to read and write. She also makes an off-handed racist comment. Why would you show any interest in her? Finally, she spends a lot of time thinking about kids! So, by reading that bio you would assume most guys steered clear right? Within 6 hours, my profile had been viewed over 400 times and 39 guys had messaged me. They just saw a cute girl and went for it. Others, not so much. What in the world could that mean? Not only does he not question it at all but he gives her his cell number! She tells him that she spent Halloween getting fingered by her cousin and he uses that as a segue to talk about trick or treating with HIS cousins. Sorry, buddy, cousin-fingering has to be a no-no. Look, guy, there is no way you want to hang out with this girl. This guy started off with a terrible line so I knew I could push this one a little further. He asked for a secret so he got the story of a c-section birth followed by a questionable adoption. He even grossed out a fake girl. He did ignore some serious spelling errors. He should have gone after the mom, though — she seems cool! He sent about 30 more messages asking for my number and insisting that he was serious. Have fun out there!
