• Hello, and welcome to my test about intial messages sent on OkCupid. Inspired by the large volumes of ridiculous first messages I receive, I have written this test as a guide to what not to start a conversation with. After much sharing of what I considering silly messages, I've realised what irritates many other people as well.


    These questions are designed for first messages you send to people, not follow-up messages or your first message back to someone.
