I messaged mine, but she hadn't logged in since July. :[ Any success stories?

No, but quite the opposite. I msg'd my highest compat score (other than my wife), which happened to be a couple. They were pretty rude so that didn't work out at all. The person things are working out with was actually a 53% enemy compat rating with me, and only 30% friend. Turns out she answered the questions at a time in her life when her thinking was different, and most of the questions she answered she'd answer differently now. Just goes to show that the ratings, though they may have some meaning, aren't a precise rule. Good luck in your search for happiness!

My highest match within a reasonable age and geographical range hasn't filled out his profile. In fact that is true for my top 2 matches. It turns out I'm not comfortable enough to write to them, since they're such unknowns. ;)

I believe in Santa Claus and Jesus, guess these match scores mean something.

My highest match (88%) immediately intrigued me. We listen to the same music, ponder existence in similar ways, and I did not think I'd find anyone in the world I shared those qualities with. Sadly, she apparently quit the site in July. One of my highest matches on okc (globally) lived two doors down from me at the time I messaged her. As it turned out, she was more a friend, but we are still close and had coffee yesterday. So match percentage does occasionally predict compatibility pretty accurately.

I think I messaged my top 10 matches...all with different approaches...Not a single message back. So I wrote a journal about it. Then I got some people to comment on that and made some friends that way...

My highest match is on the opposite side of the country, and has something like 100 people within 100 miles of her that are a higher match than me.

Dec 29, 2008 12:48pm

I messaged my highest match...and we got into a serious fight over the fact that she was just an immature little girl

Dec 29, 2008 12:49pm

I did just to say hello. She probably thought I was a pervert and never answered back.

Dec 29, 2008 12:54pm

My highest match here (not real close, on the east coast) had a long rant on how no one should ever email her. So I didn't.

Dec 29, 2008 12:57pm

^^ seriously, because a username like "vaughnwilliams" really sets off the alarms.

Dec 29, 2008 1:04pm

As a matter of fact I did. Worked out nicely....

Dec 29, 2008 1:05pm

i haven't tried yet. from reading the other comments i think it'll be interesting when i work up the nerve!

Dec 29, 2008 1:12pm

Ok this just sounds like fun I'll have to try it.

Dec 29, 2008 1:12pm

Illustrated, care to share?

Dec 29, 2008 4:06pm

Mine hasn't logged in for over 2 years.

Dec 29, 2008 4:07pm

I like to message my highest enemies. They don't usually write back.

Dec 29, 2008 4:25pm

^^glamoursssss: To answer your question, we met up, my match and I, and despite living 50 miles apart we "clicked" so well that we decided to pursue an ongoing open relationship (we're both poly). It sucks with my work schedule I don't see her as often as I want but we at least talk/chat/text every day. What intrigued me more than the match though (86%) was the fact that she was a 0% enemy too. I found that unlikely, but then and met her and...yea...

Mine too was 0% enemy. And 88% match. ^^ She had only answered 280 questions, so I'm not sure how accurate the scores are. Then again, the maximum match is only 94% or so. I wish she had not quit. Ah, well. Cheers.
