The Orcs are essentially nameless characters from Lord of the Rings. They are constantly dying and there seems to be an endless supply of them. This big, anonymous horrific army is kind of what OKCupid can feel like – just sifting through a mass of nameless people that have the ability to “die” so easily (giving them 0 stars, swiping left on Tinder, “hide profile”). And of course, you kill them without remorse. And by kill them, I do mean: reject them.
