Match.com vs. OKCupid - Which Site Has Hotter Girls/Guys?
Old Media vs. New Media, Web 1.0 vs. Web 2.0, Paid vs. Free... but one thing they both have in common?!? The relentless, methodical stalker, otherwise known as 'The Silicon Valley Bachelor'. I don't mean to brag, but I stalked the hell out of people on both dating sites. Male, female, dog - didn't matter. Everyone was subjected to my leering, I'm-going-to-undress-the-sh*t-out-of-you, eyes as several hundred pictures were downloaded onto my computer into a folder titled, "Future Girlfriends". Creepy, ain't it? Sometimes when I'm downloading, I think it's creepy too, but then I continue while eating my cereal and watching cartoons as I fall asleep with the bowl resting on my chest.
With that said, let me tell you which dating site has hotter people.
First of all, you know there's a major problem when you spend more time looking at your OWN profile than you do looking at others. I mean, relatively speaking, I spend about one hour looking at myself in the mirror everyday - and there are 12 hours that I'm awake on each day - meaning, 1/12 of my time is spent flexing and making sure that I know how to purse my lips just right when it becomes game time and I must walk into a club.
Online, I spend roughly eight hours each day looking at my 26 dating site pictures and reading and re-reading over my bio. I beam and envy my own physique and cleverness. I spend about five minutes looking at who looked at me and then I get disgusted and stop. Therefore, I spend 95/96 (I can't divide into odd numbers - sorry) of my time looking at myself online. Something is wrong here. The answer is not quantitative, but uglitative.
People on online dating sites just aren't as good-looking as the rest of society. While, I, myself, have held my end of the bargain by transferring my real world looks online, the rest of the beautiful people in the world have not followed my lead. Don't get me wrong, there are some real pretty people online, but the majority are freaks. No offense. But, since when is it sexy to have a job, definitely want kids, don't smoke, enjoy traveling, eating, laughing, and have a physique that's described as 'athletic'?!?! Sounds like a disease. "My body type? Athletic." What are we?!? Sneakers? When I was growing up, we had three body types - skinny, healthy, and fat. They might as well expand the options even more:
Please choose your body type:
- A Little Extra to Love
- Nuts with Sprinkles on Top
- Papa Smurf
- Optimus Prime
- Jello Pudding Pop
Also, people just aren't as serious on OKCupid. Several of my first correspondences with women, where I suggest we run off and get married, were left unreturned. These messages were followed by messages that said: "Did you get my last message?" "Not sure if my computer had a glitch or if I got knocked off the internet just as I was pressing send, but have you considered my marriage offer?" "Must have plow experience."
On Match, girls are more attractive, more serious, and more value-oriented. Not like the hoochie mama, c*ck teases on OKCupid!
You know why people pay $20 to get into a club? Because the girls are hotter and the guys who can't afford it, are too cheap, or don't have enough charm to succeed, are filtered out. It's a win/win for everyone. That's kind of like the difference between Match.com and OKCupid. Match.com is a swanky club with greaseable bouncers and OKCupid is a dive-karaoke bar with unlimited capacity and a 5 to 1 guy/girl ratio.
I also equate OKCupid as a site for people who are 5's and below. I literally scrolled through hundreds of girls and didn't "wink" or email any of them. That is why I look at my own profile the most. It makes me happy. I giggle. And think, "whoever snags this dude, must be some classy babe." Too bad I can't "wink" at myself. I tried. I am thinking about creating another profile, just so I can flirt with myself. It would be a "match" made in heaven.
Anyhow, OKCupid does have a pay option that allows you to view the "top rated" women by users. It's kind of like "Hot or Not", where you rate women on a 5-star system. I have yet to give anyone a 5-star rating. At the very least, both sites allow you to create a profile for free and browse men or women. What have you got to lose? I browsed guys too. I really wasn't that impressed with the options, but then I realized that both sites show the users who clicked on your profile. I realized this when I saw some of those guys clicking on my profile. I am pretty sure they were thinking, "who the hell is this dude clicking on my profile?!?" That thought was probably followed by, "well.... he's not half bad."
Thank you. I work out.
