So under the section “what I am really good at” the only thing she lists is “convincing people I’m pregnant.” DUBNER: LOL at the end of it. DUBNER: And how many dates did you have then out of Aaron Carter Fan fishing? [THEME] ANNOUNCER: From WNYC: This is FREAKONOMICS RADIO, the podcast that explores the hidden side of everything. [MUSIC: The Diplomats of Solid Sound, “The Cuber Bake” (from Let’s Cool One)] DUBNER: We’re talking today about online dating. REED: Well, one thing I wanted to make clear is that she’s not just a bad person, she wants to ruin your life. Money, my car, my phone, keeping America American, my family, and my friends, and Aaron Carter. So my goal at that point became to convince them that she is just awful. If they asked what I was doing I said I was pretending to be a 14 year old on Facebook so I could bully my sister’s friends. With a lot of guys I could just, I wrote gibberish, just pounded on keyboard for a minute and sent it and the vast majority of them responded with that sounds great, what are you doing on Friday? REED: Actually, I found that a deal breaker for me was messaging Aaron Carter Fan.By all means, make your dating life work for you but don’t sacrifice being a memorable man on the alter of efficiency. Grab your balls and take a risk – she’ll thank you for it.[MUSIC: Tear Ceremony, “I Dream of You Endlessly” (from Resin)] Alli REED: I had been personally on OKCupid on and off for a few years… REED: I actually, believe it or not, did not want to meet any of these men in real life. Alli Reed wrote a fake OKCupid profile for a really good-looking 25-year-old woman who also happened to be a racist, gold-digging, fake-pregnant-getting nightmare – and she got almost 1,000 replies. OYER: Just to give you one statistic that comes from the OKCupid blog, and I’m quoting here, “A hot woman receives roughly four times the messages an average-looking woman gets and 25 times as many as an ugly one.” And then there’s this interesting superstar effect where the very hottest 5 percent of men get twice as many emails as men who are just below that, who are more like the 10 percentile most attractive, but not among the very top 5 percent.Even the screens where the fake person supposedly viewed you. They play on your emotions, try to steal from you, and they don't care. Even their call center guy tried to get my password out of me. REALLY not the only app that allows free messages still. But, in matters of the heart and hedonism, men’s never-ending quest for efficiency can strangle the vital ‘how we met’ story.
