Math whiz hacks dating site to get 100% matches with thousands of women, ends up finding future wife.

Chris McKinlay found a way to make himself the most desired man on OkCupid. Rather than using a standard questionnaire, however, he employed his incredible knowledge of super-computing to make good with the ladies.


The UCLA student was writing his PhD dissertation on large-scale data processing and parallel numerical methods. (Don’t worry, I’m lost, too.) When taking short breaks, he’d log on the dating site and figure out how to make the most matches of his desired personality.

But the great part of this story isn’t simply about a man hacking the site, it’s how he used it to find the love of his life.

Watch as Chris describes the way he came to acquire 100% matches, but more importantly, what happened when the woman of his dreams came into the picture.
