I'll just finish that certification project that's two months old...
Deadline over. Now I have to find something to do? Man....
Guess I'll just have to be more annoying to all of you.

Also - why do I keep using OkCupid? All the matches I see have been the same for months and those I've messaged have completely ignored me. Disheartening! I must be ugly! WAAAAAAA!

Current Mood: silly silly

Now I am sad. I take it all back! You are a very handsome man who should feel great joy and satisfaction regarding all aspects of your life!

my ex roomie used www.plentyoffish.com. i mean, srsly. she's a troll and she got responses. maybe you should switch sites. haha.

I think it is more likely because she's female. Females get messages far more frequently than men. So, it's possible my messages were just ignored.

Boourns. I even read profiles and ask about interests and everything.

i've had the same problem with okcupid, as well as other sites, and *i'm* a girl...

I get the same (lack of) reactions, and I know I'm a handsome devil. I did get some response from someone who'd just started running a marathon. It was neat, but she's totally Not My Type.

I think women become resistant to dating sites because of the jerk abundance.

You know, it could have something to do with the MonkeySphere...

I suspect it is because many people on OKCupid aren't there to make a love connection. They started a profile for fun, to take quizzes, to answer question after question, or to simply have a profile highlighting their narcissism out there for the world to see. I mean, that's what I use it for. :p

As a gal who gets many messages from guys on OKCupid, and who ignores pretty much all of them, I can say it really has nothing to do with the individual guys. I'm just not interested in keeping up correspondence with more people when I don't even feel like I have time to see all my friends. (And I'm lazy.) Plus, my profile says I'm seeing someone. I'm not sure what these guys want from me.

Do not be disheartened! There are women out there less lazy than I who will surely see that you are an awesome man who is worth their time. :)

oh. yeah. you're a regular Quasimodo.

OKCupid is worthless. There, I said it, and I'm not taking it back.

Okay, maybe I will retract a bit and say it's only usable if you're a woman and you don't mind getting some really weird mismatches. Considering you're fit, talented, and all that jazz, the only answer must be that the people you get just are on it to waste time and nothing else.

I hope this doesn't sound bitter, I just find the site very counterproductive.

i have no idea why i keep going back there either. there are parts of me that are really insecure and meeting face to face for the first time after talking online is so daunting to me. can't i just meet someone who already knows what i look like?

sheesh. silly thing.

and i'm sure you weren't fishing for compliments, but ugly you are not. :P
