Default can somebody explain okcupid to me

as if i'm a your 65 year old uncle trying to get into facebook. i respond to girls who message me stuff like like "Hi ;)" and get no response whatsoever. then i read a bit into it and find usually you need to be more terse with your responses and ask dumb questions. still no responses

but ok, it's the guy's job to ask first right. so i think a good place to start is messaging the girls who rate me five stars or whatever warrants a "like" on their part, and still, no responses whatsoever

i understand girls have a bloated inbox in proportion to guys but you can't even get back to guys you've actively shown interest in.

the culture of this site is just very weird to me. i have a date on friday but she's kind of like a robot

basically it's where women go to be hilariously picky about their prospective dates

at this point even the people looking for fucking have other options and ok cupid is basically for idiots who want to filter their choices in men down based on lengthy questionnaires so they can find someone that likes exactly the same stuff and has the same opinions about everything

Isn't that what you should be looking for?

My gf (over 6 years now) hates everything and everyone too and is antisocial and is also hypochondriac (which I am) and has an anxiety/panic disorder similar to mine and we generally have very similar interests (except video games which she couldn't give less a shit about). We might commit mutual suicide someday soon but I can say I've never gotten along better with anyone.

I dont think having the exact same taste in pop culture is necessary at all. I think having the same approach is good but its not a dealbreaker if she thinks swans or shoegaze is crap.

It would be incompatible if she had exceptionally bad taste, and im talking about someone who watches ALL romcoms and NOTHING else. Talkin bout how good failure to launch is. I HAVE met a woman like this

This girl I dated for like 6 months, she watched French canadian shows that are the equivalent of like big brother. Well except worse really cause its more about finding a "mate". Anyway they're all extremely vapid people of course so naturally the only thing a sane human being can do watching these is to make some ironic comments about them and how fucking pathetic they are, and she got mad at me for "being so negative" (I mean I am negative but you HAVE to be about something like this). That's when I knew we were likely doomed. Looking back she's the worst person I've ever dated and that's saying a lot.

she thought she was very cultivated and once I don't know why Andy Warhol came up and she had no fucking idea who he was or what pop art was. I mean I don't give a shit about ether really but you're 27 you've been to college, you consider yourself "cultivated" and you have no vague fucking idea who Andy Warhol even is? fuck sake... I'd have felt different if she saw herself as a moron but she kinda looked down on me for not having been to college. Whaddabitch.

Yes, I feel better just having talked about it.

Online dating is weird. It sounds too easy, like I cant believe you could get laid that way.
From my 20 year old perspective the internet is like the opposite of sex.

i've had a lot of incredibly bad dates because of OK Cupid and every single one of them were unbalanced women with some kind of chip on their shoulder because they get a lot of attention on ok cupid even though they are average looking fat people at best

You're telling me I could get a date without that horribly awkward part where you have to ask in person and open yourself to painful rejection and more awkwardness?
There's no way.

You have to suffer through that part to get a chance at having your dick sucked

what part of this thread, or anyone's experiences, ever, leads you to believe this

there's still the awkwardness of asking people stuff or saying hello and never getting a response ever

and as opposed to other dates i've had, the OK Cupid ones feel more like a boyfriend audition instead of two people having fun with each other

Asking out girls online with a whole database of girls seems pretty easy.
Just be like "Would you possibly fuck me?"
No? Okay, Next.

Until someone says "Maybe if you buy me dinner"

Getting rejected in person is so much harsher especially if you have to see that person again

i'm wondering how much weight to put into the match %s... i'd hate to be non-cynical but anything above 80% does seem pretty spot on with somebody i could be with.

and the other thing about OK Cupid dates is that you've already gotten an answer for every single question you could possibly even imagine asking so there's a real dampener on conversation you can't be like "so what do you do?" or "what movies do you like?" or whatever, because it's already something you read through before you said hello

I AM SO FUCKING BITTER

Apparently I'm pretty attractive. Im just socially retarted and horrified of rejection.

So maybe online dating is for me. But Im super skeptical. Like, whats the catch?

I mean you really can't be picky. But if you're online looking for dates I don't think you would be
