Another reason why the human social dance confuses me
A few weeks ago I updated my OkCupid profile to say single, not looking, not interested, and not available.

And now, instead of getting an introductory contact every few months, I get one most every day!

No wonder people lie so much, directly connecting your desires, emotions, intentions, and affect don't seem to work, but saying the opposite and presenting persona, does.

nah, it just pushed you to the top of the list of being recently updated.

Reminds me of a time I put a profile on Yahoo! personals (back in like 1997!) where I said I was looking for a woman to date, and I liked men but was already dating a man and didn't have a lot of time in my life, etc....

I got one response from a female and about 20 from men saying "You don't need a woman, you just need me!" and basically showed that they didn't bother to even read about me.

I got more IMs after I said I don't really like IMs.
