Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi OKC readers, trying to create the ideal profile is making me
neurotic. Should I be sincere, or should I go the joke route
Oh wait, before I go any further I am ashamed for all the boorish
dickheads around, plus they make it hard for all the non-creeper,
non-boorish dickheads. While I'm at it I also apologize for the
sport exhausts, backward hats and bare chested photos.
Anyways, since you are reading this you should probably know that
there is a decently high chance I will see you in real life and
there is a very, very high chance - unless you're a total recluse
that is - that you will see or be seen by someone who's profile
you've seen on here. I mean when I joined this site, I saw people
on here I already knew!
I would say I spot one of you at about an average frequency of once
every two weeks. Now, I have never, never approached one of you and
said something as doltish as "Duh..Hey, I saw you on OKCupid",
which would be kind of jarring, worlds colliding and all,
especially if you are with other people and you don't want them to
think you, desperate you, are whoring your sad self out on some
sleazy website - but I kind of want to say..."Hey, Just Hi", so
what we need is a sort of secret handshake or an
That way we can cut the awkwardness when you without any warning
come face to face with someone who you didn't plan to meet but who
pictures you've seen and you know what job they have and if they
like cats or did a masters or lived in Paris and who's favorite
books and music you can rattle off.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm writing a Bollywood version of Glee, it's called Ghee.
I am also available to critique your profile and help you fix it so
attract the right kind of person.
Rule 1) No matter what you look like choose your body type as
Rule 2) Avoid saying stuff like "I just want to meet someone and
get it over with it".
Rule 3) When you list "The six things you can't live without" don't
list "great sex". Do you know how much pressure that puts on a
(Also don't list oxygen and water and shit like that, ok
Rule 4) Okay this one is real. Don't say only you want to date a
certain race or a person of at least a certain height. It is just
hopelessly shallow. If you are shallow don't advertise it.
Corollary to Rule 4) Don't list all the types of people you don't
want to hear from. It just sets the wrong tone for a site where you
are trying to meet people.
(...more rules to come ...)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
At times I am really good with connecting with people. I don't know
if it's a Toronto thing or what, but we are used to being very
abrupt, but a lot of people are reaching out and I try not to cut
people off when I think they want a little airtime.
I will also name your business or write a headline:
Hip Hop car wash: Gz Up Hose Down
Vietnamese Resturant: Pho Shizzle
Obituary: Memento Maury. RIP Povitch
Exotic Dancing + Deli: Hot Sluts and Coldcuts
Rug store: Carpet Diem

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
