OkCupid

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.

  1. Your posts make me simultaneously miss dating and realize that I’d never survive in today’s dating world. Rock on, girl.

  3. Good luck! It’s nice that you havea phone date before a real date. You can make sure he isn’t a creeper.

  5. Yay, that’s the FUN part of dating

    The phone date thing is a good idea though. I’ve met tons of peple on the internet via message boards, blogs etc, and I’ve seen their pictuers. Often times, when meeting in person for the first time, it’s not so much a shock putting a face with a name (because I”ve been facebook stalking them already, duh) but putting a VOICE with a name.

  25. I’m a HUGE fan of OKCupid.

    Why?

    I met my boyfriend, Erik, on there. We’ve been dating for almost 3 months.

    Another friend of mine met her boyfriend of a year there. They ended up breaking up, but that’s only because they met a month before he was moving to another state – so they made it a YEAR long-distance.

    Good luck!

  27. Oh, and you don’t necessarily have to have a super high percent to be compatible. My boyfriend and I were only 82% compatible.

  29. He sounds like he has a lot of potential. I think that having a close relationship with his family is a great sign.

    The compatibility factor intrigues me. I wonder how compatible my boyfriend and I would be according to that profile.

    I hope your phone date tonight goes well. Give us an update!
