People are very strange

For reasons which will become obvious, I'm going to describe something seen on my friends list rather than quoting with attribution.

Someone adjusted their profile on a matchup service to say "single, not looking, not interested, and not available". And started getting introductory contacts every day instead of every few months.

Two of the four comments recounted similar experiences.

This isn't just "the subconscious doesn't understand negation". This is "the subconscious thinks negation is a flashing neon sign that says 'Here's the good stuff'".

Any theories about what's going on?
