I can’t help but wonder how significantly the MTV show, CATFISH, colored his guy’s perception of online dating when he wrote this message. Or, did he believe that suggesting this woman’s profile could be a catfish scenario would be a fun, creative way into her pants? Was the bet real?
Living in NYC, I naively assumed that people eschew major “cat fishing” since meeting new people can be genuinely difficult and a potential beaux will probably be less open to casual conversation over that milkshake with you at the soda fountain on Date One if you’re not more or less who you claim to be on the internet. But what do I know, really?
As it goes with so many misguided OKCupid messages, I walked away after reading this one with more questions than anything else. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions.

a magician asks you to pick a card - any card, in fact. you do. they ask you to put the card back in the pack - anywhere in the pack, in fact. you do. they walk away. ten years later, your wife gives birth to the six of clubs. “is this your card?” the midwife asks, in a familiar voice.
what the fuck
See this is actually a really neat look at how history works.
