Funny answers to dating questions

Thankfully, there is an option for “Neither, both are bad,” so maybe the query originated with someone who isn’t a sociopath.

Please, please, please tell me that this question wasn’t posed by someone who is seeking a partner that is okay with “Once a week or less” and who might be okay with someone who answered “A couple times a week.” I picture an army of hippies doused in patchouli, arm in arm and it makes me want to gag. I’m an editor, and if you can’t tell the difference between "there," "their" and "they’re," please do not apply. Who has been a) on a date with someone whose idea of dinner out was the plastic cans behind IHOP; or b) thinks that such a date is their idea of a good time?

If any match for me suggests we do hot yoga on a date, I’m going to assume this was posed by you. But this question seems to suggest that an OKCupid member feels that if you can’t spell onomatopoeia, you probably don’t earn enough money to afford a night out. I don’t want to know any "freegans" (those who eat food that's been thrown away), and I hope you don’t stumble across them on OKCupid.

I don’t “let it grow, wild & free” nor “occasionally trim,” but I’ll bet there’s a manimal out there who would love to find someone who’s growing a forest.

And I’ll bet he likes to eat out of the trash and only showers once a month.

I find it fairly scary there are people using a dating site to find a lover who showers once a month, eats garbage, likes tortured animals and finds the threat of nuclear war exciting.

These are just some of the answers to user-generated questions asked by OKCupid, a dating site and app with 5 million monthly users.

To be fair, the last time I dated, Facebook hadn’t been invented, much less most of today’s social networking dating apps.

In my 20s, you met people — wait for it — in a bar.

But I was still pretty shocked by some of OKCupid member’s queries. All of those are bad answers that make me want to smack my forehead and sigh. And, honestly, if I’m not wearing a dress or going on a date, I’ve never considered shaving my legs to be a necessity, much less an obligation.

Once you read some of the below gems, I think you’ll probably want to run screaming to your nearest bar, too. MORE: 10 Weirdest Social Networks Danger, Will Robinson.

I have to think that the person asking this question is looking for someone who answers “Yes, it would,” not “No, it wouldn’t.” And that, quite simply, is terrifying. Both options, I think most normal people would agree, are terrible.
