(Addition 23 nov 2012. I'm staying on for the tests. And friendly chats.)
It's like this: About a year ago, I had mail in my inbox from a dating site: "we have matches". Hey, I don't belong to a dating site! Spam? Junkmail? I unsubscribed. Time passed... The same again! *Another* site. Had I accidentally hit some adverisement button? I unsubscribed. The third time, I mailed them. "but you filled in a form (on the net), and you PAID!"). Someone has given me a "present". Unsubscribe me please, I don't want the money back.
Then OkCupid turns up... and OK, I'm starting to get curious. I look. Someone has taken the trouble to fill in a lot of questions. And tests. Not all truthfully, of course. But someone who knows me *very* well.
I ask my family, friends, even my husband. Denials, anger, laughter, accusations.
I ask advice. "Unsubscribe". The next time heaven knows what kind of site it will be. "Change your password and e-mail". I've changed my password, no good. I'm not changing my e-mail. 1/ It's been with me since 2000, 2/ It probably wouldn't do any good
I fill in other questions that I feel I can answer truthfully.
Some of the tests are fun. I like being a Basset or a Bloodhound. And a genius at English. Please don't belive everything. But maybe it's me who's wrong here...
Is someone doing this out of spite? It's a long time since I had a spurned lover, I've been married for years.
Is someone trying to "help" me? I've been married for years. Thank you, but no thank you.
Is someone hoping I will be unfaithful? I don't do adultery, sorry.
The people at OkCupid *seem* serous. IF I should ever be singel again I'll keep that in mind. I'm old-fashioned, though...
