How important is OK Cupid’s compatibility scoring? I used to think it was bullshit. Now I’m reconsidering my stance.
Below is a list of the most notable guys I’ve met on OK Cupid and our compatibility score:
Joaquin – 94%
Superman – 91%
Hayden – 90%
Clark – 89%
The Blond Mandarin – 89%
Texas – 65%
Of course, Texas’ rating stands out like a sore thumb. We were not compatible at all, and I think the only thing that held us together for so long was the incredible physical chemistry we shared. I might not have even agreed to go out with him had I not been newly single and brand new to OK Cupid. I was inexperienced and easily distracted.
It’s no surprise that Joaquin and Hayden scored so high. We get along beautifully.
I am a new believer in the compatibility scoring system and am excited about it.
I will be conducting a new experiment soon: I want to go on a date with someone who scores 95% or higher. What would happen?
Shutting down OK Cupid will have to wait for now.
