Just added you to my Favorites list - though I have no idea to view whose on my list. Weird. Will have to play with that. Haven't spent too much time on OKCupid - but it sure looks fun!

Awesome! Your Favorites are listed in the sidebar on the left side of the homepage. However, by default, only those who are online are listed. To see all of them, you have to click "show offline".

I love how your humor shines through in your OK Cupid profile. I think the first paragraph about you growing up Mormon might have turned me off if I didn't know you because I might not have read beyond that. Is there some way you can say up front, or at least a little sooner, that you are no longer religious?

Also, I thought the last part, "You Should Message Me If...", was too negative. It's funny, but then it doesn't turn it around to something positive. And I seem to recall that you were willing to go sky diving on a first date, and that's pretty exciting! :-P

I'm not the target audience

I believe I'm not the target audience, but when I pop up the OkCupid ad in my browser, I see a paragraph about being Mormon, so if you've got someone clicking through and culling ruthlessly, they'd have to read down quite a bit to find that you're not quoting Mormon theology as a positive trait.

I'd find a way to rework that so that you can lead with your elevator pitch, what you are rather than what you're not.

Wow - how are you 12% enemy with my profile?

I'll have to WTF you the next time I log on - maybe you missed a few math questions? :-)

Twelve percent? Assuming you're my most recent stalker (fabulous Princess Leia costume, BTW), you're only 7% enemy. Or are these things not necessarily symmetric?
