OkCupid's match percentages might be worthless.  Why?
  1. Most people don't know what they want
  2. Most people lie (who is going to admit to cheating, abusing animals, going to jail, doing heroin, blah blah)
  3. Most of the questions are probably irrelevant if you meet the right guy/gal (would you really care if they are open to matches double their age if they are the PERFECT guy/gal for you?  They are not asking to be in an open relationship with you, are they)
If anything, I should go through all my questions and rerank "importance" to get a better match.  Might just do this.

  1. I just answered a few questions and thinking how irrelevant some of them are in predicting compatibility. Does it really matter if he daydreams 'always' or 'sometimes' if he's the right guy? Of course, it would alarm me if he NEVER daydreamed...
