And the goods are still odd

Robert Stacy McCain explains why OKCupid is simply no place for the self-respecting female:

According to OKCupid, a majority of their users are liberal. This makes sense, because it is so unlikely that anyone who actually knows a liberal would want to date one. The kind of guys who vote Democrat are such dangerous creeps that women who know them in real life avoid them, and so these weirdos end up on OKCupid. Research indicates a male-female ratio of 3-to-1 on OKCupid, and women users say that 80% of the men on OKCupid are “below average” in looks. Of course, these men are also below average in intelligence, because in real life the male-female ratio is 1-to-1, so an average guy actually lowers his chances of success by dating online, where the odds are always against him. This is why there are no decent guys on OKCupid. If a guy was decent, he’d already have a girlfriend or, at least, he’d be sufficiently optimistic about finding a girlfriend in a real-life face-to-face encounter that he wouldn’t bother with OKCupid. Because the available pool of men in online dating is such a notorious swamp of inferior quality, only women who are truly desperate for companionship would sign up for OKCupid.

Disclosure: I had an OKCupid account for several years, but let it lapse.

    I believe I was on OKCupid for a while some years back. Aren’t they the ones who want you to answer strings of really stupid questions? Like,
    “If you were stranded on a desert island with Justin Bieber and a gun with only one bullet, would you shoot him or yourself?”

    I hadn’t thought of them in years, but if they’re anything like Match.com, ,they still have my old photos up, trying to make it look like they have more members than they actually do.

    They told me they’d dropped me for disuse; I didn’t bother to check.
