OKC IceBreakers

Hi all!

OK Cupid, a meeting and dating site, has a new feature called IceBreakers. This feature picks something from your profile and also from someone else's... someone who theoretically has something in common with you and matches your selection criteria.

The process is that you don't get to know anything about them but this one common element, but you can send an email anyway. What's the topic? Of course it has to be the one common element between you. The one that came up for me recently was haiku; others that I've seen are rock climbing and friends. Yes, really, "friends." Anyway, this is what I wrote to Ms. Mystery who says she likes haiku:

you enjoy haiku
they say it's special to you
like well-worn sweaters

how could anyone
esteem haiku more than i
structured thoughts run far

haiku lends itself
to endless doggerel, life
scampers fleetingly

I've gotten no reply as yet, but let's just say my expectations are low.

Cheers! generalist
