6 Things YOU Can’t Live Without…

OkCupid asks their users to fill out several questions on their dating profiles.

We recite several of these answers from user profiles Verbatim in #DateMe.

One of our favorites that we use in the show is:

What Are The Six Things You Can’t Live Without?

Seems like a simple question. But this can reveal A LOT about someone’s personality:

  • Are you going to put your best  foot forward?
  • Make a joke?
  • Take it too seriously?
  • Be too literal?

Speaking of being TOO LITERAL, since we wrote #DateMe: An OkCupid Experiment, OkCupid has changed this section on their site to read:

“Six Things I Could Never Do Without”…

I’m 99.9% certain this is because at least 50% of people put:

Air, Food, Shelter, Water, etc.

I know this because when I did The Experiment I saw WAY too many people thinking they were being VERY clever by writing these answers.

And when we ask our #DateMe audience volunteers for their 6 Things they often say some variation of the above.

Now, for the purposes of it just being Funnier and more specific to say “Can’t Live Without”, we’ve left the original verbiage in the show. But…

#DateMe Doesn’t End On The Stage

The show is interactive. And we want to interact with you BEYOND our 2-hour show.

So we ask our audience to Tweet THEIR 6 Things. And we’ve gotten some really interesting answers.

We now present:

This Week’s 6 Things You Can’t Live Without

We asked. You Tweeted:

And Speaking Of WEIRDNESS…

When we started #DateMe two years ago, DateMe Diaries didn’t exist yet.

Which means we have Tons of Archival 6 Things that have never seen the light of day!

Over the coming weeks, we’ll highlight our Favorites.

So here are this week’s…

6 Things WE Can’t Live Without (AKA, Our All-Time Favorites)

The Sweet…

Aww.. Claire, that’s so adorable! And NORMAL (which can’t be said for some of these)

Meme Themes…

Um… LOVE the specifics of Rosie O’Donnell Cult Classics.

And I can only assumed you’re referring to M. Night Shyamalan’s “Wide Awake”.

Right? I thought so.


Also, appreciate that you love Drake Memes. Here are some Classics:

This next guy loves Memes, in general.

Aww… Kebin. If you’re questioning if this list makes you attractive to females? The answer is

“Yes. It’s EVERYTHING a woman wants.”

A guy who searches for Memes while he eats meatballs & nacho cheese, spends his money on weed, and loves… “pussy”


Hey, sometimes you can’t come up with a full 6 Things and you have to repeat one.

Charlie, we get it. One time Nuggets isn’t enough.

Also, appreciate your spelling of “grammar”. images.jpeg

And, Kelli, if you’re gonna repeat, at least you’re specific. Combining Peanut Butter & Froyo is a brilliant choice.


Honestly, I just wanted an excuse to post this Giant Picture of Deliciousness.

Self Deprecation (MY FAVORITE)…

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 8.31.12 AM

I Always love good Self-Deprecation. Probably because this is the type of language I use when speaking to (ahem… berating) myself.

“Not Taking Care Of Myself”


“When People Hang Up On Me Mid Sentence”

Tells me SO much about how you view yourself, Dan. And I LOVE it!!!

It’s Time For Our Weekly Roundup.

Every week we feature our favorite moments from the previous week’s #DateMe audience, posing the question, “Would YOU Date Our Audience?”

We’re pretty sure the answer is YES. Because they’re Hilarious!

We had submissions via:


Follow us on those platforms!

And read on to see it all. Who knows. YOU might be featured!!!

Profile Names

We ask our audience to create their own Profile Names.

This week’s winners are:

Be My Friend

Again with the Self-Deprecation!

This Is Pretty Much EVERY Interaction In My Life.

I’ll meet someone, I think we’re going to click. They give me a window of introduction:

“Hey, I’m…”

And before they can finish I blurt out…

“Be My Friend!”

Ok. Maybe I don’t blurt it out. But all of my thoughts, actions, and my general personality REEK of this type of desperation.

I Wish I Was More Confident Like This Girl:

Slutti But Kewt

Yeah, KEWT girl. You OWN it!

And “Slutti But Kewt” is better than being “Slutti But An Uggo”.

#DateMe Photo Booth

As always, I’ll close out this post with some of my favorite photos from the #DateMe Photo Booth & show this week.

There were TOO many good ones to choose from! If you want a bigger view, just click the photo.
