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.

Major thanks to Gabi Snurb for contributing to this OKComix post!

JUNIOR DETECTIVE FILES

CHECK IT 
"A Klee painting named Angelus Novus shows an angel looking as though he is about to move away from something he is fixedly contemplating. His eyes are staring, his mouth is open, his wings are spread. This is how one pictures the angel of history. His face is turned toward the past. Where we perceive a chain of events, he sees one single catastrophe which keeps piling wreckage upon wreckage and hurls it in front of his feet. The angel would like to stay, awaken the dead, and make whole what has been smashed. But a storm is blowing from Paradise; it has got caught in his wings with such violence that the angel can no longer close them. The storm irresistibly propels him into the future to which his back is turned, while the pile of debris before him grows skyward. This storm is what we call progress."-Theses on the Philosophy of History, Walter Benjamin 1940
