I like my men like I like my chronic illnesses: manageable.
Most men try to be impressive and end up being repulsive (and end up on sites like GTFOCupid). Obviously possessed of a scientific mind, Evan Vail decided to be as unattractive as possible on his OKCupid profile to see if the process worked in reverse. Spoiler alert: it did. This is the kind of non-sequitor, go-anywhere humor from a random person that the Internet was built for.
Evan did indeed end up on GTFOCupid, presumably put there by someone who didn't understand that they'd just found a diamond in the rough. Once there, however, it went viral, which he started to suspect when he began receiving OKCupid messages from all over the globe.
The war between man and dating profile (or more accurately, man and his own brain) is as old as the Internet. On the one hand, a dating profile should convince a woman that you would be fun to spend time with, and on the other, horniness lowers IQ by about 25 points and men somehow got it into their heads that women like hearing descriptions of their penises (they don't, and they will post watercolor art of you with a tiny penis on the Internet if you try it).
