FYI, This post is personal and doesn’t feature much math or free software.
I recently read Ruth‘s “Mamas, Don’t let your babies date some crazy blogger I hadn’t ever heard of” GeekMom column, about how some psycho blogger decided to write about her date with Magic the Gathering Superstar World Champion, Jon Finkel. Apparently they met over some dating site called “OKCupid” and it didn’t work out for them. Boo-freakin’-hoo..
But I’m not here to berate the Gawker blogger(they do enough to discredit themselves). I tried out the site a few weeks ago. I had been in Mexico City for almost 2 weeks and lived by myself in the hotel and yeah, it might make you feel kinda lonely. While watching a Big Bang Theory rerun where they end up hooking up Sheldon with Amy through some dating site, I decided to give it a try.
I can’t remember who recommended it Found it! It was a rather short blurb on Phandroid(Thanks, Kevin!), but apparently enough for me to try it out.
You see, through the site I found this cute girl. Apparently the Al-Gore-Rhythm put us at a 91% match compatibility and 0% enemy. We chatted, a lot, throughout about 3 weeks, she ended up ‘friending‘ me on Facebook and we finally went on a date today.
Unlike that crazy blogger, I could actually write the nicest things in the world about her here, but won’t because I respect her privacy, besides we both think meeting people online is kinda weird and had to come up with cover stories like “Friend of mine gave me her address” (If I told you this story, I lied, heh), and having people online reading our date seems even creepier. We had a lot of fun, and are looking forward to the next date, you’ll have to settle for that.
I know the chances of meeting your soul-mate through some dating site are slim-to-none, but I’d like to think I found my needle in a haystack, as early as it might be to say so. If you’re single, keep looking, and why not give that site (Or any other site) a try? Worked for me, and I’m quite happy with the results.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to get into a shape. Apparently I can no longer handle a couple of Pump-it-up tracks on Hard without sweating and losing my breath. Man, that sucked.
