World Map of My Matches

Here is an email I received from okcupid a few weeks ago. It’s funny that some of the places where I’ve been considering moving are the places where I have the best matches.

Ahoy, cherryteresa! Time for a geography party.
We just finished programming this experimental toy. It generates heat maps of where your best male matches are, all around the world and the USA. Here are your results. All for you. Calculated from your match answers. In graphical form. Enjoy!
