time vs. arrow length. eheh heh. *snort* [Aug. 15th, 2005|09:54 pm]
Lindsey Kuper

I finally caved and signed up for OkCupid a couple of weeks ago. I don't think I quite have the hang of it yet. For example, Michael mrr had to show me where the Compare Page was -- I would've never found it. (When I'm trying to find something on a website, I usually look at text navigation first, and then I look at inline links in text. I never look at big, friendly buttons. Am I doing something wrong?)

That there matching algorithm really is uncanny -- I answer questions about things like religion and politics, ethics and sex, and it somehow knows to match me with other people who like Snow Crash and Andrew Bird. It sort of creeps me out. I mean, are we really that predictable?

Right. Well. I don't have much of a presence there yet, I'm afraid, but if you want to find me, you'll probably be able to.

That thing totally makes me laugh, basically every time I log in.

It truncated my gangsta appellation. I joined as a lark, but I DID meet new friends there and I even found a nice Japanese girl....who I click with.

Oh, I bet you can find me if you try hard enough. Display some adaptability.

I am old and I give up easily. I tried 11 different permutations of the 3 or 4 names I know you've used in the past.

I am disappointed by your stalking skills.

(I've used three or four names in the past? Huh.)

Uh, I never went by "act4" or "pumpkinhead". Ever. And "Rock Star Girl" is the name of a song, not a name I go by.

Then I have committed grievous sins in addition to being unable to find your OKCupid name.

Yeah, I got the mail. Request sent!


Sorry for the trouble...I would have NEVER gotten that username or remembered to use your gmail address.

No trouble. I just forgot you aren't as good at stalking as some of my other friends. =)

It's okay; I never would have guessed "cerulicante." What's the story behind *that* name?

The sky is cerulean; he's a supplicant to it; and he stuck an 'e' on the end because he's a pansy-ass nancy boy.

"time vs. arrow length", yes!

Haha, oh mans. OKCupid was (probably is?) really endearing. I made sort of an armchair comparison of a bunch of online dating sites (pfft, I guess you were in the room when I was scoping out World of Datecraft...), and OKC was far and away the most usable and pleasant. I had applied for a summer job there some years ago (I guess summer 2006?), but they apparently weren't ready for summer-only people.

It's the only dating website I'd ever consider using. And I think working there would be all kinds of awesome, although it'd probably be hard to explain their presence on one's resume to anyone who didn't understand about them.
