About the show

48 million Americans have tried online dating, "#DateMe: An OkCupid Experiment" is the outrageous, true story of one. More…

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.
