HOW TO USE OKCUPID THE WAY IT WAS 100% INTENDED, PROBABLY

  1. Read the preview of a message so the person who sent it doesn't get a 'read' notification.
  2. Click on the same profile of someone you so they get the 'viewed' notification.
  3. Don't message anyone you find interesting.
  4. Delete more than half the messages received.
  5. Wonder about the series of events that led you to be the type of person who uses this website in this terrible, but predictable way.
  6. Never message anyone who seems interesting and cute.
  7. Find 99 good things, write person off entirely for their hatred of girls who take selfies.
    Substitute 'girls who take selfies' for any sentence that starts with 'why do girls always...' 'DONT message me if you're the type of girl who...' /yikes
  8. Never message anyone and wonder why no one with a similar personality to yours messages you first.
    Seriously other shy, nice, cute guys- you show me your awkward social interaction skills and I'll show you mine.
