6. OK Cupid Messages I Have Not Responded To by Delphine Beidient $4.00 – Oh-kay OK Cupid…these unresponded messages are like forensic evidence to reverse engineer Bedient’s dating profile.

I hope this gets followed up by a zine of things Bedient has written on the OKC – I think therein may lay the meat of the matter. -EF
