To sweeten the appeal, AYI also flags any mutual friends the prospective pair share. If not, they can click “skip.” (MORE: Does Online Dating Make It Harder to Find ‘the One’?) AYI pulled data from its 68 million downloads and 20 million Facebook profiles to see which subscribers are making successful matches.It focused in on the 1 million recommended pairings in a specific population of 35,942 users ages 30 to 49.The surprising finding: a woman was five times more likely to show interest in a man was five years her junior that one who was five years older. Among the 26,434 men ages 30 to 49, 42% wouldn’t even consider a woman if she was older than him.Ironically enough, if you could take the best of those women and the best of those men, and place them in a big room where they could sit at a table and ask each other questions in person – you’d probably have 4 or 5 new match-ups by the end of the night. All they have to do is get online every day, sitting on their princess throne and file through the dozens or more profiles of men who have messaged them throughout the day.The problem with online dating is that you can’t see the person’s face when they’re telling you about themselves. I think it’s hard for guys to comprehend the world of online dating from a woman’s perspective. They then flippantly toss out all of those well thought out, carefully crafted messages from most of those poor schmucks, and then they log onto their Facebook accounts to complain to their girlfriends that there are no “good men” left in the world.When it comes to dating, there’s an unscientific, but prevailing opinion that older men want younger women and vice versa.
We also asked them to rate each of our reviewed online dating sites. It takes all the best parts of all the dating and social networking sites out there and puts them together. Okay, it’s time to have an open and frank discussion about the battle of the sexes and the dating game.It’s far too complex, scary and difficult for mere mortals – so let’s bridge the gap by asking both men and women what doesn’t work when it comes to online dating Dating has gone digital.Though the questions should have narrowed my potential matches, I unfortunately did not see many people that I was attracted to or would actually go for.I like the idea of this site and how it mixes dating and social media; however, I really didn't like the selection.
