Bwahaha! I found you. No surprises there, nope.

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!)

It's all relative I guess. It's saying that she's more optimistic than people who are filling out the OKCupid info. Maybe that's true. In my (obviously more limited than yours) hrafn interactions, she comes across as being more optimistic than me, for certain, and quite probably more optimistic than a lot of folks I know. However, I know a lot of angry, negative people.

Maybe she's changed relatively recently? I dunno. I don't know her as well now as I used to. Back when I knew her well, she was so veyr not optimistic. But a lot seems to be going well fo rher lately, so maybe that's shiftng things.

You're confusing pessimism with realism and frustration. I've always been the optimist.

Having sex and dating are totally different things. I would think that you, of all people, would know that. Silly bitty.
