This post is only peripherally related to knitting. A friend of mine (from SnB, there's the connection:)) recently went on a date with a gal he met through okcupid. I tried about a year ago at the urging of another friend, but it was quite ridiculous, and I quickly removed my profile from circulation. The types of men who were contacting me were so not what I was looking for! Anyway, on a whim, I thought I would try out the personality profile on okcupid. I've heard it is rather different from other online dating services. It most certainly is! At the end of the survey, it came up with my personality...

The Priss
Deliberate Brutal Love Dreamer (DBLD)

Mature. Responsible. Aristocratic. Excuse me. The Priss.

Prisses are the smartest of all female types. You're highly perceptive, and confident in your judgements. You'd take brutal honesty over superficiality any time--your friends always know where they stand with you. You're completely unfake. Don't tell me that's not a word. You're also excellent at redirecting internal negative energy.

These facts indicate people are often intimidated by you. They also fall for you, hard. You have a distant, composed allure that many find irresistible. If only more of them lived up to your standards.

You were probably the last among your friends to have sex. And the first to pretend that you're pregnant. LOL. Though you're inclined to use sex as weapon, at least it's not as one of mass destruction. You're choosier than most about your partners. A supportive relationship is what you're really after. Whether you know it or not, you need something steady & long-term. And soothing.

Always avoid: The Playboy (RGSM), The Loverboy (RGLM)

Consider: The Manchild (RBLD)

This was so dead on (except for the pregnant thing, huh?)I almost couldn't believe it had been formulated from a bunch of random questions. Obviously the questions weren't that random after all! Since the graduate student dating scene is pretty lame, I think I will give this a shot for a month or so and see what happens. Time to seek out that person enamored in my "distant, composed allure". Onward ho!

I wonder what the Manchild profile is about? That sounds kind of... unappealing. Manchild?
