    Ugh.

    I guess it is stuff single white females like…and we all know how THAT movie turned out…so, it is probably a good thing that I not only didn’t identify with much on that list, I think that some white women put what they think men want to read.

    Seriously, nascar…women? Maybe most of the women on OKCupid are from the rural south.

    Ah-ha! I think you may be on to something. Which is why sometimes self-reported data isn’t all that accurate…

    “Maybe most of the women on OKCupid are from the rural south.”

    Actually, no. The post author commented on that as well:

    “It’s also amazing the extent to which their list shows a pastoral or rural self-mythology: bonfires, boating, horseback riding, thunderstorms. I remind you that OkCupid’s user base is almost all in large cities, where to one degree or another, if you find yourself doing much of any of these things, civilization has come to an end.”

    So, basically, it’s what single city girls imagine they’d like, if they were living in a romance novel with Fabio in leather pants and a horse on the cover…

    (ETA) Although, having looked at that paragraph again, I do have to concede that I do enjoy boating and horseback riding. But I also live in a rural area where those things are a practical possibility.

    Charles: So you don’t even like Van Halen a little bit?

    Seriously, though, I think the post author summed up the white guys list pretty well: “frat house.” Which definitely doesn’t sound like you, based on what I know of you.

    I suspect you and I are both secretly Cristina Yang from Grey’s Anatomy, but with better social skills…
