Robyn Lynne Norris is unlucky in love but determined to understand it better, so she logs on to the world's most popular dating site: OkCupid. Creating 38 "undateable" profiles as an interactive scientific investigation into online dating, Robyn unwittingly sets in motion the social experiment of our generation. Part improv, part sketch comedy. "#DateMe: An OkCupid Experiment" makes one conclusive result: there's no algorithm for love.
