Do you know where Marcel friggin' Proust is Some people stick to their guns when they say they don't care about looks—and bless their hearts.Unfortunately, we're literally engineered to gravitate towards attractive individuals who smell like redwood trees and caramel.My friends and I were hanging out when I spotted a man wearing a summer scarf; I might have berated him for his bad fashion sense if he hadn’t been so hot.He held my gaze long enough for me to know I could talk to him, and just as I got up the nerve to make my move, he was sat down beside me.Before the show, I told my friends about the return of my mojo, as I scoped out the room.I locked eyes with a tatted hipster and flirted a bit with a skinny blond before the lights went down.Oh yes: "Get it girl, get it get it get it, girl." A dating app that allows people to meet based on their intellectual capacities rather than their looks! But, you know what happens when two smart people meet?
The sole review on the app's page summarizes it nicely: "You buy points to promote yourself, and to view/ message other ppl, and to see who liked you. down the drain." The transition from desktop to mobile for websites is a bit like the great change from silent films to talkies during the late 1920s. Unfortunately, POF seems to be succumbing to the same fate.
I had high hopes for a real connection, so I did a tequila shot for confidence. And then some of the potentials from Facebook stopped by, but by then I could barely hold a conversation.
The next day’s hangover was a bitch, but it felt better than sadness, an emotion I haven’t been able to escape since the breakup.
Unless you like prostitutes—I mean, that's guaranteed sex right there. You can tell me, I'm not a cop* Let's face it, after Tinder took off, the appeal of Ok Cupid started to wane—much like the flaccid penises who were getting ignored by the instant gratification swipe of Tinder.
Ok Cupid became less of a hookup app and more of a—ew—relationship app.
So over Labor Day weekend, I resolved to look for love where I had last found it: in person.
