Blex's 2011 Match.com Experience & Experiment
The Story & Background Information
In March of 1994, my mother, sister, and I went to Best Buy and became owners of a
solid $3,500 Packard Bell home computer! I'm now 31 years old and have
used computers every single day of my life for a total of 17
years! When I was little, I loved playing with Transformers and I
was fascinated by the fancy technology, computer terminals, buttons, and
mesmerizing sound effects portrayed on the show. As a result, my
fascination with computers goes back to the early '80s! Anyways, this
isn't an autobiography, so I'll get to the match.com experience.
Currently, I've been single for 2 years. My last girlfriend and I were
pretty much a couple for about eight months until she called me out of
the blue in March of 2009 and simply said she just wanted to end our
relationship. So, yeah, haven't talked to her since then and I've been
single ever since! No problem really, seeing I've probably had maybe
five definitive relationships in my life that would have warranted
updating my facebook profile to "in a relationship" status (the current
relationship-status-barometer for the entire country).
Lets jump to February 23rd, 2011, I'm bored off my ass sitting on my
laptop in my apartment looking for something to do on the internet. I
think to myself "Damn, I've been on the internet all this time and have
been a revolutionary and legendary figure with my old mp3 page having
millions of visitors. Yet, I've never paid one cent for a dating site
and haven't met any women from online in about 8 years!!" So, out
of my infinite free time on my hands, I decide to check out the highly advertised match.com site!
Back in the '80s and '90s single, nerdy, and desperate for love nerds
like myself ruled the internet. At that time, for every attractive
female online there were easily hundreds of guys like myself yearning
for their companionship. But now, it's 2011, there definitely has to be
a better ratio of attractive single females to males. Right???
Now, lets get some things straight, I'm not hideous looking, I got nice
teeth, a good smile, a Michael J. Fox-like baby face, I'm college
educated, and from what I've been told I'm smart, funny, and in pretty
good shape (aka, not fighting off diabetes and tipping 300 pounds). I
figured, I've got to attract at least some good looking women on the
After creating a profile and making it completely 100% truthful
I did change my smoking status to "no answer" in hopes to land better
search results from hopeful matches), I decided to check out the
available women. Of course, I didn't sign up to actually PAY for the
ability to communicate with women because match.com has a feature
called "WINK for Free!!" So, in my genius mind, I put in my "about me"
status, "if you are interested, wink back and if we match I will buy an
account on here!" I thought to myself, ingenious!!! Plus, I figure that
if people are smart enough, they will do a quick Google search or facebook
search for Blex or BlexClex and they would be able to find me online. RIGHT???
The Outcome - Five Weeks Later
As you can see, no luck!! Damn! How can that many women not be
interested in me? I figure, the ratio of single men to attractive
females on the internet STILL can't be that DISPROPORTIONATE. Right??? WRONG!!! ZERO interest from available babes and ZERO chance for finding an actual MATCH on MATCH.COM!!
On my daily 6 personality matches, I showed interest in 37 matches. ZERO showed interest back!
I sent a grand total of 175 fucking WINKS to 175 different attractive women and got ZERO winks back!
I was only viewed 128 times!
Let's take a look at the numbers and matchmaking odds:
0% - The percent of women winked at that winked back!
0% - Percent of women who expressed interest back!
3.65 - Average number of people who viewed my profile in a day.
1 - Number of winks received from ugly, large, beast-like, and Medusa-looking women!
3 seconds - Time spent deleting my profile!
March 28th, 2011, I get an idea! I'll hit facebook, snag some
random and averagely attractive 28-32 year old woman's picture from some random
place place in the world and create a fake woman's profile to
investigate if the good looking women to single male ratio is still
as exponentially disproportionate as it was over a decade ago! I snag, in my
estimate, about a 8/10 pretty good looking head-shot picture of some
unknown blond girl
from the other side of the world and I claim her mugshot as my own! I use my third e-mail
address to sign up for a new account, toss in some random
typical-female-like Wisconsin information, and make the phantom woman
same age, martial status, no kids, etc. that my profile had!
I'm not going to show the picture I used but it looked something like this (f33r my l33t CGI-Paint skills) !!
March 29th, 2011, ONE DAY LATER, See for yourself...
HOLY SHIT!! In ONE day, 5 emails, 31 winks received, and 255 TOTAL
views!!! If you do the multiplication to determine what would have
happened in 5 weeks time, the numbers are astronomically disproportionate for attractive single females to males!
8,925 - Amount of men who would have viewed profile in 35 days (5 weeks).
175 - Amount of men who would have emailed in 35 days (5 weeks).
1,085 - Amount of men who would wink in 35 days (5 weeks).
So, lets compare the numbers from the test subject phantom female to myself over a 35 day timespan:
70/1 - Attractive single women get SEVENTY FUCKING TIMES more page views than attractive single male!
175/0 - Number of unsolicited emails received by attractive single woman to attractive single male!!
98.57% - Percent more page views of attractive single women to attractive single male! Yeee!!!!
If you are an attractive female in Wisconsin, you can create a profile on match.com and
immediately have your choosing between any SEVENTY different men who express interest!
Single men like myself in our late '20s or early '30s have a
minuscule chance of meeting babes on match.com. Single men hoping to
find that special attractive, smart, and compatible match are like
items on a shelf in a department store. We simply sit there
perpetually trying to put out any sort of vibe that
hopefully leads to an actual acknowledgment of existence by a single
To quote George Costanza, the only hope is to have no hope. There is no
hope for single men looking to meet attractive women online! He was right!
Life as a single man does have it's blessing of true 100% freedom, good
times with friends out drinking, no female drama, not having to
listen to bullshit you don't care about from women hoping to get laid,
and a dictatorial-like
management of what to watch on your TV. But, the downfall is the
hopelessness in knowing that you are at the total mercy of attractive
females if you are picky like I am. It's like what was said in the
Durham, it's really all about timing, coincidence, molecular
attraction, and pure really just pure 100% LUCK in finding a sole mate!
