Via Wired:

Then came the message from Christine Tien Wang, a 28-year-old artist and prison abolition activist. McKinlay had popped up in her search for 6-foot guys with blue eyes near UCLA, where she was pursuing her master's in fine arts. They were a 91 percent match.

He met her at the sculpture garden on campus. From there they walked to a college sushi joint. He felt it immediately. They talked about books, art, music. When she confessed that she'd made some tweaks to her profile before messaging him, he responded by telling her all about his love hacking. The whole story.

"I thought it was dark and cynical," she says. "I liked it."

It was first date number 88. A second date followed, then a third. After two weeks they both suspended their OkCupid accounts.
