“Send Drink”

16 Feb

OKCupid has an update to everyone’s profile now so you can “Send Drink” to someone.    I studied this button very closely, afraid to press it for fear or what could happen.

I went to a friend’s page, where at least I knew if I clicked the button and something really weird happened, the most that would happen to me is I would be ridiculed.   *Click*

It allows me to send a message – and not a drink – to said person.

OKCupid – I don’t get it!   I kind of imagined it was like “SuperPoke” on Facebook.  “Soon2BeCatLady just threw a drink at you!”    Or better yet,  have a drink show up at someone’s home.   I’d be okay with that.

This message doesn’t even indicate that I had clicked the “Send Drink” button.  This is lame.   Why should I click that instead of the “Send Message” button?   Nothing makes the “Send Drink” button more fun, except that it’s a different color.

Through talking with friends, and comments on this blog entry,   I have come to determine that it is either one of two things:

1)  A paid ad from Smirnoff…   which (although it is kind of working because people are talking about it, or are at very least intrigued)  really isn’t cool.

2) (And I hope it’s reason #2)  Because there is now an “official OkCupid USB beer/scotch/vodka/tequila/wine dispenser”  (Kudos to The Pink Phantom..)

    Wait, you don’t have the official OkCupid USB beer/scotch/vodka/tequila/wine dispenser?

        I don’t have such a button… I feel cheated. Even though I’d never use it, I want one too!

        That and the dispenser… 🙂

    Yeah, I’m on OKC right now and I cannot find anything like that…

      Do you have A-List?


      • s4m4nth4x February 18, 2012 at 1:17 am #

        Yes, I do!

        That is why you can’t see it- because it’s a paid ad – and you don’t get ads on A-List.
