There is no real matching system, they put the forms in a hat and match up any 2 folks with nothing in common. One friend was matched up with someone 180 degrees different from him, another guy, a straight male was matched up with a gay male, another was publicly ridiculed by an obese douchebag with a bullhorn. Costco is a dogshit camp that only serves to waste its "patron's" time. Fuck you Costco on the Playa. I love the real Costco stores.
Well kinda, most of our insecure bullying assholes actually do a pretty good job of getting laid. I don't know if you've noticed, but Jerks can pull some trim. There is definitely a matching system, which I would never share with a non-employee. However, I like the hat idea.
180 degrees different? Who was standing on their head?
Dude, if we hooked up a straight dude with a gay dude we must of thought both of them were pretty cool.
That obese douchebag with a bullhorn is one of the best people I know. His heart is bigger than your snarkiness. I don't mean to imply that you shouldn't try to be snarkier though, keep trying.
Please feel free to find your soulmates at the default world Costco, it seems like that's working out better for you.

I gave him honest feedback and he didn't want to hear it. Don't ask if you don't want to know.
I do want honest feedback. Who told you I didn't want to hear it? Now I'm starting to wonder if you were looking at something that said "Costco" when someone with a bullhorn got under your skin.
Best feedback I've seen so far goes to

that's because sometimes a group of dudes will come in hoping to get hooked up with chicks. In order to keep it from being a sausage fest, we make them bring in one chick each. But I can see how someone Greeting might just start messing with someone.
I'm not sure if there's a way we can change our system to make that not happen, or if we just have to deal with rubbing some people the wrong way.

nah, we have a whole system we use. Though, after camping across the street from Distrikt I can see what you mean. Most of the people I interviewed who had come from Distrikt I quickly tried to match up with someone else from Distrikt. I called it the "Board shorts and bikini tops" rule.
