On March 23, 2015, Kate created a profile on OkCupid.

Some 200 opening messages later, she's been on a whopping 4 dates.

Clearly, she's doing something right.

Each post is an excerpt of a message this seemingly inexorable self-saboteur has sent, backdated to its original send date.

More of the same is guaranteed.

She told me I had panache. Stereotypically, she sent her message from a gaudy, English country house.

(This exchange led to Date #5. Neither of us have called each other since, so, I think it went well.)
