Online dating in Ann Arbor versus DC

This is not OK, Cupid chronicles a recent U of M Law School grad's adventures on every quirky twenty-something's favorite online dating site: OKCupid. A recent post compares the online dating scenes in Ann Arbor and our nation's capital thusly:

Now, Ann Arbor was truly a great source of material (between the uber-pretentious PhD students, asshole business school students, socially awkward google employees, and the randoms from the surrounding area) so I questioned whether DC could possibly live up to it. As will you come to learn DC has not only met every expectation but exceeded them. And how. Just to whet your appetite, I will say that I feel extremely confident in asserting that there is no other city in the world which contains as many profiles per capita in which the answer to the "What are you doing with your life?" question, contains some variation of, "saving the world." I'd estimate that about a third of the male online dating population in DC is saving the world (although some are only doing it it ironically). It's actually pretty remarkable, and I hope makes you feel a lot better about the future of our world to know there are so many men in their late 20s and early 30s that are out there saving it, and still even have time to date online in their off-time.

I guess this is a good thing, right?


  1. It's definitely a popular route to go. It's not for everyone though.

  2. I don't think there's something wrong in joining dating sites. A lot of dating site reviews showed good service for some of our friends in the online dating world.

  3. That sounds like a rather funny way of describing a so-called best dating site (saving the world? really?).

  4. Joining online dating sites is usually the root of another thing in intimate relationships: the long distance relationship. After saving the world (yeah, I know that line), there would always be time for online dating and keeping up with the long distance relationship with your boo. What to do? Open up skype. Check his/her facebook status. Admire his/her new profile picture. One says that "absence makes the heart grow fonder", right?
