As some of you have read on Twitter, I joined OkCupid a few nights ago while watching TV with my roommate. She’s been a member for a couple of months, I was bored, so she convinced me to sign up too.
I don’t know how familiar you are with the site, but once you register, you fill out a profile describing yourself and then you answer these questions. Most of them are pretty funny and actually make me laugh out loud. Based on your answers they will match you with people who will supposedly be compatible.
So I answered the questions… my top match and I are 94% compatible and 0% enemy. Good thing he’s attractive.
I emailed him. He wrote back and ever since Sunday we’ve been sharing witty banter back and forth. I let my roommate read our emails and she said, “I already like him!”, which, Yay! because I like him too! Not that I need her approval for the guys I date, but it’s nice to know that he really is coming across as a funny, smart guy in his emails and it’s not just in my head.
His good qualities: He likes karaoke, sushi, live music, wii boxing, and running marathons. He also has an amazing job and he’s close to his family. All good things.
He finally asked for my phone number yesterday and I believe we have a phone date tonight. I’m getting nervous already, but I’m also very excited. All the other guys I’ve been talking to online haven’t been too much to get excited over. This guy, though? I think I already like him like him. It’s a good feeling.
