” I feel like Match.com is a zoo where you’re walking around looking in
cages and saying, “That is an interesting animal there.” Like I said,
we try to make OkCupid more like an online bar. So you’re there, you’re

journal. You’re just socializing, but there happen to be hot guys and
hot girls. That just seems so much more natural than the zoo feeling.
It’s also much more empowering and irreverent than believing that
there’s a Dr. Phil or some guru of romance that you have to defer to.
