It seemes I was the first person in the world to post Assange's OKCupid profile, shortly followed by a friend on Reddit (Bondiben). Village Voice picked it up next. The rest of the mainstream press quickly followed.
It gave my tumble weed blog 10 times the traffic it's seen in over 5 years.
Brownie points to Mashable for crediting my find.
Best of luck Mr Assange - in both the trials of dating and of the courts.

- More girls in their late 30s like rough sex because it's a coping mechanism for non-committal boys (or maybe they're just more honest)
- Raised moles mean you're a bit of a sexual deviate.
- Pretty much everyone with a digital camera has nude photos of themselves.
- That girls on a backpacking holiday are greater conquistadors than boys doing the same thing.
- That eastern European girls are mostly a bit crazy.
- Fat girls like sex more, and not because they're desperate.
- That the meekness of Asian girls is too often a façade and should be dispensed with.
- That American girls really do give the best head (blowjobs 101?)
- That Cosmo's 'Hot Sex Tips' really do bore pretty much everyone.
- Brazilians are obnoxious (never trust someone that takes a drum to the beach)

- "just reading your profile you sound very sure of your self maybe you are just a playa?"
- "Do you tend to internally narrate your own life?"
- "emmm....do you by any chance need a wife? :))"

I'm a 38 yo guy. I like kids. They like me. I just don't want my own.
I called the family planning centre to get some information on a vasectomy.
They didn't have anything beyond surgery risks and fears.
Nothing about the social or psychological aspect.
I found a great librarian who pulled a bunch of articles from medical journals.
None of the research was relevant to me - it was either dads who had enough kids, or 22 yo guys who were deemed a bit damaged.
So my gp, and everyone else just shrugged and said make up your own mind.
Am I that unusual?

It was a classic - the knowledgeable man deflowering the innocent woman.
No mention of how the clueless males in that culture managed.
(which would have been a bit more use to me then)

Age has never worried me too much, but my drinking partner dwells on it.
He's been in a relationship for 10 years, so keeps wondering if other girls find him attractive or not, and if he could actually meet new girls if he needed to.
We were out on Friday night (11pm - prime time)and ended up chatting to a couple of 26 year old cosmetic buyers for a department store. The running joke was that we were old and sketchy, and they were young and dumb.
It comes up again in conversation as more than a joke, and one of the girls says:
"You're old; you know how I can tell?"
My friend Blanched.
"Because you can hold a conversation, and you don't keep talking yourself up"
Maybe getting old isn't all bad.
That's when people are relaxed enough to chat, but not too smashed.
This was written in stone when I was in my 20s, but some time in my mid 30s I forgot it.
Usually, I go out on a Friday night after work, and run out of steam about 10pm.
This means I never meet anyone other than my immediate circle - everyone is catching up with friends, chatting to workmates, or getting dinner.

... Because I just logged on to chcek for customer emails and got some new friends request. Got to check them out asap.
I LOVE my current job and have a ball - I do what I love and love what I do and today the view from my office window is the cottage garden out of my living area window...with my beloved xxx (dog) at my side. Give me an hour and I will be happily playing with inks, papers, cardstock, stamps, and all the other scrapping and stamping stuff... before jumping the back fence for a swim with my neighbour in her pool when everyone else is driving home - I LOVE my life at the moment!

We met for coffee at a mundane coffee shop in a mall. Adequate conversation, until she began espousing a new numerical theory of 9 year cycles in life. I question that the standard astrological cycle is 7 years.
"well yes... but this fits so much better"
So I ask if she believes in it, or feels its more likely that human nature looks for patterns in any random sequence of events.
Well... I've never seen a mood shift so fast. She went into lockdown mode.
"I used to be like you - questioning things, but it's just so negative"
There was no saving things from there. We both ran, each feeling we had a lucky escape.
