That Time My Boyfriend and I Joined OkCupid…

Last Modified: February 20, 2015 at 4:07 pm by Tianna | Leave a comment


Today’s post is a little wacky because it’s about the time my boyfriend and I got bored and joined OkC as a kind of social experiment, but I hope you enjoy these more random, personal posts about what I do with my time and what a weirdo I am…otherwise it’s just me here being a creep LOL.

I have this friend. To protect her identity, let’s call her Andrea. Andrea is single and she is on OkCupid, but doesn’t take it seriously at all. In fact, half of our conversations consist of how she’s tried to creep guys out via the app, making her profile as creepy and weird as possible, and how guys seem to pursue her anyway. Life’s tough when you’re a gorgeous blonde, but I digress. She’s hilarious, in any right, and her stories inspired my boyfriend and I to sign up for OkCupid. Not because we’re swingers (we are not – please do not creep-email me lol), but because we were curious to see how many people we could get to match up with us and message us, etc., thus leading to…


{this is my idea of Takei’s signature “oh my..” haha}

That Time My Boyfriend and I Joined OkCupid…

We had a ton of fun making our profiles as whack as possible to try and thwart people, but I guess we misjudged humanity because we still got matched up with a bunch of creepers anyway. I put things in my profile like “hates people on general terms, never shaves, may or may not have an STI…” and basically whatever I thought would make me sound like a psychopath stalker, but I still got at least 6 messages a day. We would reply to people’s messages with things deliberately meant to test the limits of their standards and I’m shocked at what guys will put up with, to say the least. On the other hand, my boyfriend got a lot less messages than me so it goes to show that we, as women, feel a sense of entitlement or expectation that men should approach us first. Or, maybe we’re just shy; who knows? Men, on the other hand, are shameless self-promoters who sought me out, messaged me either A.) inappropriate comments about my body, requesting nudes or just generally being creeps or B.) you’re pretty which tells me they have nothing better to say. Borrring!

According to our less-than-ethical social experiment (read: cure to boredom), women are a lot less likely to put up with a guy’s antics than men. Men are actually either very tolerant, totally oblivious to those around them, or just complete idiots. I haven’t decided which it is yet LOL. To be honest, I was bored of it after about a week and besides, my boyfriend’s sister’s friend messaged me on there, but I’m not sure if it was to say “you got caught” or “sup girl” and I really didn’t want to find out. My boyfriend was all bent about not getting enough messages so he deactivated before the week was even up.

    ha! this totally sounds like something I would do, only I’d be a weirdo and creep on the because I know there are tons of people where I’m from on there – just to laught at the profiles. and your experience sounds much like the experience of my girl friends that trudge the waters of OkC, lots of creepers that want to meet up and get freaky! great post, social experiments are always enjoyable to read about!

      haha! I’m so glad I’m not alone in this. Sometimes, I write a post like this and I’m sitting here thinking I’m a jerk or everyone will think I’m a jerk haha. And then I’m kind of like, huh, oh well. I am so happy I’m not the only one who creeps and does random stuff to mess with people and can admit it. I think a lot of people do it, but try to act like they don’t haha. Glad you enjoyed the post Savannah ♥

    I found this post a really fun read! I think it’s great that you and your boyfriend can have fun doing random stuff like this, it shows how much trust you have in each other too!

    I think it can be shocking how low some peoples standards are… lucky for you, you don’t need OkC for real!

    Keep up with the fun, random posts!

    1. February 26, 2015 at 1:44 PM

      thanks Lois! I’m glad you enjoyed it. We really do some random shit haha. I cannot express how weird we are as a couple. We do trust each other – without that we would not be together. Other weird things include extensive “what if” conversations about “what if you were a hairy girl with narcolepsy” would you still date me lol. and other random questions. I think that relationships aren’t always exciting, but talking and making each other laugh is a good way to stay connected.

      Yeah some peoples’ standards are horribly low. It was really eye opening haha. True, but I did go on some awful dates when I was on Hot or Not back in the day so I paid my dues lol. you can read about my worst date, if you want here:

    My experience on there is that men are desperate (not all but a large majority). The weirder we come across the more fascinating we are to them. AND if you ever take the time to chat with them (brace yourself) they turn out to be legitimately weird, lol.

      yeah really scarily desperate haha. It was creepy, to say the least. I was just telling my friend this. She was telling this guy to just basically go away (he kept trying to talk to her in inappropriate ways) and it just kind of seemed to encourage him despite how much she told him off lol. I love that they can back up the weirdness with legitimate weirdness haha – at least I won’t be disappointed. thanks for visiting Wendy!

    Oh my gosh. I loved your experiment. Brought a smile to my face!

      Haha I’m glad you enjoyed it Eryn! The point was definitely to make people laugh and think – I’m not that weird – because I do weird things in my free time too haha. happy to make you smile 😀

    Hahaha. I’ve definitely thought about doing the same thing. It’s so funny that the men were willing to overlook potential STDs because they think you’re pretty. lol.

    hahahaha, I love this post, since I totally made an OKC account to be a creep too (on my friends. we’re weird and immature, I know), and it became somewhat of a social experiment. It is seriously frightening how much you can say that still won’t deter people on OKC. o_o I don’t know if it’s tolerance, obliviousness or idiocy either. :/

    I will say though that I think the profile picture I chose helped to uh, lessen most of the creepers that would’ve potentially come my way, haha. 😀 I’ve actually made a couple friends on there, but out of those, there’s only one I’d like to meet. Since I made the profile to creep on my friends though (they’re all on the other side of the country), the likelihood of that is pretty low at the moment. :O

    Haha, I actually met one of the greatest guys ever on OK Cupid. Actually both great guys I met were from there, but there just weren’t any chemistry. Don’t get me started on Tinder though…groan!

    The idea you two had is hilarious though!
