"Christian Rudder is mild-mannered in person. But in his official capacity as the president of OkCupid, an irreverent online-dating site, he likes to provoke.
Mr. Rudder is particularly interested in the divide between the mates people claim they want and their actual online pursuits. Witness the actions of 35-year-old heterosexual men on OkCupid. These men typically search for women between the ages of 24 and 40, Mr. Rudder reports, yet in practice they rarely contact anyone over 29"


...picture for a moment if I emailed nothing but men under the age of 43... *crickets*

More from Mr. Rudder:
"On how men and women perceive attractiveness online

Age is a huge variable in online dating. Women generally like a guy to be the same age as them up until the guys hit about 40. But when you flip it around, when you look at how men perceive women, it's pretty much a just straight ticket vote for 20, which is the lowest age I looked at in my data set. So even 45-year-old guys rate 20-year-old women the best. It's a very pervasive opinion among at least the people on OkCupid."
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're gonna do it whether I think you should or not ;-)

Stream of consciousness:
You feel music is necessary (but cover bands and arena shows not so much)
Live local (more encompassing than just 'buy' local)
You have great lips
You wouldn't feel awkward at mpls photo center...
or at the Turf Club
Active doesn't require extreme
You're snuggly
The idea of replacing the grocery store with the farmer's market doesn't befuddle you
You're OK with the fact that I just said befuddle
You begin sentences with the word 'so'
Eels
You have sexy facial hair
You're not hung up on society's propaganda that men must date much younger women (see above)
You've seen the movie 'What Maisie Knew'
Ken Burns
No matter your age, we look like we're about the same age
You've read 'Silent Spring' or 'Black Boy'
You unapologetically own a Bee Gees album
Or maybe Pink or Linda Ronstadt...
Nowhere in your profile do you tell me you are attractive or good at sex

You can extrapolate something of my personality from my unconventional profile (this is really the only reason you should message me, if we're being honest)
