The Sorrows of Young Werewolf

Borges brings all the boys to the yard, and they're like, how do we get out of this labyrinth

Today's mandatory man is not smiling in any of his photos, but a lot of them don't smile. I am not sure why this is, perhaps to demonstrate that they object to being photographed or to needing to display photographs on OkCupid? Anyway, I find it slightly irritating, because look, buddy, no one wants to be here, OK? But at least they aren't Photographs with Women Conspicuously Cropped Out or Naked Torso Selfies. And despite them, I like the sound of this one: lists lots of good writers, likes horror movies including the funny bad ones, uses good complete sentences and even capitalizes Eyes without a Face correctly (like that). And I was just thinking about Eyes without a Face two days ago, no lie, so I told him this (though I didn't mention the capitalization part because that would have been condescending). Also he mentions Borges too. If there's one thing guys I like on OkCupid can agree on, it's Borges.

Speaking of the Naked Torso Selfies, isn't it pathetic how poorly straight men generally understand what straight women find sexy? Even women who are super into muscly torsos -- and I've always liked the willowy types better -- don't want to see yours without limbs in a bathroom mirror, looking like crime scene evidence. Not that I'm aware of, anyway. And I've seen more than one straight guy look astonished at the revelation that some women like to see men kiss. Guys, if you could shut up for even five minutes about how much you like to see women kiss, you might learn something about what we like!
