Everyone with an “alt” sensibility does this on OkCupid. It’s a shame because the message is supposed to be “if you’re cynical enough to appreciate this, we’re above everyone else and can connect,” when really it comes across as “I wanted to stand out, so I wrote the least original response short of ‘you’re a fun guy!’”

Like this sort of response has become more of a tool than a display of personality. Whether it’s behavior or originality, nobody wants a tool in online dating.
