Online dating has really revolutionized romance over the years. For those who could never find someone that shared the same interests or truly clicked or simply couldn’t find the time for dating, alternatives like Match.com or free sites like OKCupid became the answer. Now online dating has become so common that there’s hardly a person left who raises their eyebrow when told a couple “met online”.
However, that doesn’t mean the experience is always a walk in the park. This is the internet, after all. It’s the easiest place to make new friends and the easiest place to find creeps. One site has decided to shine a light on some of the weirdest (and funniest) messages sent through OKCupid. This is Not OK, Cupid is a Tumblr that allows users to submit the strangest messages they’ve ever received on the dating site.
The submissions range from sincerely hilarious to outright bizarre and it earned its stripes recently when hit internet stardom through Reddit and Buzzfeed. The site was originally started by just one woman to document her experience on OKCupid, but it soon became clear that she wasn't alone on the weird message front. Now anyone can submit and its resulted in some real gems. On the plus side, maybe This Is Not OK, Cupid can at least serve as a learning tool on what not to say on dating sites.
