There are a lot of risks when it comes to dating sites and apps that go far beyond an awkward dinner date. Even just by creating a profile, you’ve supplied personal information about yourself that marketers, advertisers, and researchers will pay big bucks to get their hands on. According to VICE’s Motherboard, a modest amount of 70,000READ MORE »

I’ve been doing the online dating thing for a few years now, and after having suffered through one inappropriate message that did nothing other than objectify me too many, I started explaining to men why “Holy fuck, you’re sexy” or “You’re hot” were not appropriate ways to approach strangers, be it in person or online.

Having resolved to return to the fray this week, I did so with a vengeance – to decidedly mixed results.

Michelle Markowitz apparently had the same experience on Tinder that I had on OKCupid: Eventually, you begin to realize that not only are most of the potential matches exactly the same types of guys with the same types of baggage, they’re usually also incompatible (which is OK!), but often in a way that is borderline-if-not-definitely… READ MORE »

Residents on New York City’s Upper West Side attempted to prevent a wine bar from serving alcohol in its outdoor seating area because too many “internet people” go there for dates after meeting online.

The online dating scene is rough. Sure, it’s a great way to meet people, but we use the term “people” loosely, as some of the individuals we’ve come in contact with still seem to be in their primitive forms. Obviously, first impressions count … but not to these idiots.

Online daters are always eager to share their horror stories — and, oh, do we have them! But, I feel like if your bad OKCupid date makes the New York Post, you’ve reached a whole other echelon of horribleness. A 22-year-old St. John’s University student, who wishes to remain anonymous, shared the grizzly details of… READ MORE »

Let me preface this by saying that not all of my online dating experiences were bad ones. I met handful of nice, normal guys who weren’t for me and one nice and normal enough man to have a 6-month relationship with. But there were also so many who weren’t nice or normal. There were soREAD MORE »

Found on OKCupid: This 45-year-old “small business owner/failed comedian” who posted a profile picture of himself in blackface. The caption noted that he was dressed this way for Halloween. (And why OKC didn’t censor this photo in the first place is beyond me.) According to Jezebel, this charming  lover of karaoke who “personally identifies with” READ MORE »

It’s that time of the year when people are having drinks outside, couples are PDA-ing, and I’m re-activating my OKCupid profile. I have a notorious reputation for constantly deleting and reactivating that damned profile. I believe in Internet love! No, I’m a misanthrope! I want to find my soul mate! Soul mates don’t exist!

We culled messages from our own inboxes, OKCupid, Kill Me and The Worst of OK Cupid. After the jump, see what Joan, Betty… READ MORE »

Last night, my friend J. forwarded me an email that had been sent to a friend of hers from OkCupid. “We are very pleased to report that you are in the top half of OkCupid’s most attractive users,” the website wrote to J.’s pal. “The scales recently tipped in your favor, and we thought you’d… READ MORE »
