If you like the test, just wait until you get to all the questions that help match you up w/other users. Oh boy! It's so much fun!!!

I'm doing that now. At least these I can skip if I don't like them.

BTW, any guesses as to which type they have me as?

Err, there is no T. The last letter can either be D or M.

Okay, so I found you, and it says you're an 88% match, but you don't show up in my local matches. What's up with that?

Generally the matches default to only showing folks who have pictures, I think. My understanding is that you can make it do otherwise via your settings, though I haven't tried.

What is your OKCupid name?

OKcupid also offers this answer:

2.5. Why's so-and-so (whom I match!) not in my match results?

Every time you click for a match, we combine the best 50 people from your last match and a new set of random people... anywhere from 200 to 10,000. We then recalculate matches on all these people and show you the best. This means your best matches stick around -- as long as they remain good matches -- while allowing newly discovered matches to join the list.
If someone doesn't show up, then either (a) they haven't been found for you yet, or (b) they don't fulfull your match restrictions, as set on your settings page.
This system is subject to major change, and, at the very least, improvements. As we improve OkCupid's speed, we'll increase the batch sizes to find good matches more quickly.
One last point: matches are cached every ten minutes for you. Re-clicking "world matches" or "local matches" multiple times in a short period will show the same people.

Thanks.

It's a good thing I have other people to read the FAQ for me.

79% compatible. Hrmmm... I should be dating you.

Oh wait... it says that you're less kinky than me. Damn it. I should have known it was too good to be true.

Well, it says that hrafn is more kinky than I am, so maybe she would work out better for you . . .

(although it also says she's more optimistic than most. Hah!)
