It's no secret there's a good population of assholes on OKCupid, but here in New York, the online dating world boasts some particularly uncreative types: the guy who was "born and raised" listening to Dylan and the girl who is "obsessed with" Jay Z.


Yes, according to OKCupid's latest data batch, New Yorkers really like watching snarky mainstream TV, especially when it takes place smack dab in the Big Apple. Here are the top six words/phrases found in every person's profile, organized by sex:

30 Rock
Arrested Development
Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Bob Dylan
born and raised
my iPhone

30 Rock
True Blood
Jay Z
obsessed with
ice cream

Pretty depressing! Guess that means true love in the city is knowing someone else who finds Liz Lemon's awkwardness just as charming as you do. Either that, or it's someone who will share a sad little bowl of Häagen-Dazs with you as "Hard Knock Life" bumps in the background. [Village Voice, Image: Magdalena Bujak/Shutterstock]

"my iPhone"

I lol'd. I can understand making a big deal about your iPhone on a tech site (see screenname), but on OKCupid? That's about in the same league as walking around the grocery store with a BT headset because you think it makes you look cool.
