Want To Help Me Write My OkCupid Profile?
May 17, 2012 § 10 Comments
I think it’s time for a shake-up on my dating profile. I haven’t been very active on it lately and I haven’t been active on the dating market in awhile, period. In my experience, success begets success or in other words, I either get a shitload of messages all at once or complete tumbleweeds.
Since I’m in the tumble-zone, I’m game for whatever. You wanna get nuts? Let’s get nuts.
In the past I’ve considered simply writing the worst profile ever but for whatever reason I get writers block on OkCupid. As a writer, I should be able to eloquently and beautifully describe myself, who I am, my soul and my desires. Instead its more like “Hi there, me Kenny, so horny.”
Instead, I am down to experiment with some different ideas for dating profiles. Is there anything that you think I should try? Anything you’d be interested in seeing what would happen? I’ll possibly do it and then show you the results. I don’t mind being a guinea pig and I am willing to embarrass myself and bring shame to my family name.
If you’re unfamiliar with OkCupid, here is the format of the profile:
What I’m doing with my life
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The six things I could never do without
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m looking for
You should message me if
Then of course you put up photos and answer questions. I might be willing to try some new photos out too!
Should I write something really honest or just have some fun with it? Should I write from the perspective of perhaps a famous person or a hipster or a banana? I don’t give a crap, just tell me!
Also, if you’re a girl in the L.A. area, why haven’t you hit that “CONTACT” button on the left? Send me a message! Or even if you’re not in the area, I got time to read an e-mail.
Oh and if you want to satiate your curiosity, you can find my profile here. If you’re a dude or if you’re my mom, please don’t click that link and make it awkward. But do suggest what you want me to try out because I’m single and ready to tingle!
