I have been kinda/sorta searching for a partner who shares my interest in conspiracy topics and especially survivalism. I've joined a few different
online matchmaking services and one of them matches you based on your answers to hundreds of questions. I've been a member of this particular
service for several months and I like it because it's free.
At first, I was afraid I would scare men away with my extreme beliefs so I kept my profile light and pretty. But lately I feel I'm not really
attracting the right types of guys, so I thought it would be better to just state my beliefs up front, scare off the majority and hope for the best.
So I changed my profile a couple of weeks ago to reflect my ideas of surviving in this country when something catastrophic happens (like the current
economy going to hell).
Well today I received an email from one of the moderators of the site stating this:
"I wanted to ask you for a quick favor. We're slightly changing the way our matching algorithm works, and your account was chosen to use the new
scoring. So what I'm wondering is if you could (1) play with matching, and (2) let me know if you get better matches now. Answering some more
questions may help too. "
This message really raised a red flag for me. I'm thinking... ok why suddenly am I getting attention from the site owners? So just for kicks, I
decided to answer some more questions. In the past, most of the questions I answered had to do with foo-foo relationship stuff. But check out this
list of questions I'm getting now:
Could you date someone who used anti-depressants?
What's more important to you?
If you caught your child (or future child) smoking pot what would you do?
Try to talk and educate them
Send them for counseling
Whip their ass
Do Nothing/Ignore it
Is evil necessary in the world?
How comfortable would you be in a relationship with someone who owns and trains with deadly weapons? Assume that this is not part of their occupation,
but that no laws are being broken.
This would make me feel safer.
This would make me uncomfortable.
This would make no difference to me.
Are people who believe in the paranormal (IE: Ghosts, Vampires, Aliens, ESP, etc.) all crazy or suffering from some sort of mental
Yes, and they all need mental help, now.
Yes, but I couldn't care less.
No, but I personally don't believe
No, I'm a very big believer in the paranormal.
I'm thinking that this attention from the staff and new questions couldn't possibly be coming from a simple change in my profile text unless someone
was specifically reading it and singled me out. Could I possibly be on a watch list? Am I being paranoid? Should I play along and answer the
questions or cancel my account altogether?
