So, after reading all about OKC here - last night Dude and I were talking about it and what it used to make the matches, etc. So I got on last night and started to make a profile just to see how it worked. I answered about 75 questions (focusing on finding the "poly" type ones and making them mandatory etc - tips I learned here), took a few tests, and filled out some of the "drop down menu" sections. I've added absolutely NOTHING to the profile yet, no text, no pictures, nothing.

Well, I got my first message:

Quote:
Hey cutie **** here think u sound yummy wanna chat ,cum play? Wanna cum over tonight,hangout I'm in ***** area of (nearby city).


Anyway...
With even the small amount of info that I gave the site it did seem like it was doing a decent job finding profiles for me to look at - some interesting poly bi women not too far away that I could see myself messaging if I ever bother to finish putting the profile together.

My very first message on OK Cupid went like this (I deleted it, apparently, so it'll have to be from memory):

Them: You look really lovely.

Me: Thanks! That's really nice of you to say!

Them: Well you do! Do you mind if I ask you something personal?

Me: Not at all, ask away!

(At this point I'm thinking it'll probably be something a little dirty/relating to casual sex, but there's no harm in letting them ask)

Them: Well my friend has this website, for porn, would you like to work for him?


*Jaw smacks keyboard*

Not what I was expecting in my first message.

Personal boundaries. We needs them.

forgot to add my reply: "I don't have kids, and I don't want any."

Got another nice one today:
"Wanna come to Italy? I'll show you what a really good cappuccino is!"

I'm about 4 countries removed from Italy, and mention in my profile I'm only looking to get in touch with people locally.

I got 2 messages recently.

"hey beautiful how are you? "

That, from a 22 yr old in Michigan. I'm in Massachusetts. His profile said he's looking for women 18-27. I'm 57.

Does he "deserve" a response?

Next message:

(verbatim)

"What'swwhats up gorgeous ngggggWhats up gorgeous?"

OK, he posted that from his phone app, but for goodness sake!

Does he "deserve" a response?

Speaking entirely candidly and with all due respect, if I were 57 and catching the attention of someone who was 22 and ostensibly looking for someone far younger than I the answer to that question would be FUCK YES!


I've gotten my share of freaks too; I got a message from a woman who, after some conversation, revealed that she was physically unable to achieve orgasm unless she was struck in the face. And I dont mean like a little slap, I mean full on closed-fist punch.
