Internet dating is pretty much made for the ladies, right?
All you’ve got to do is throw up a couple of pictures, string together a few sentences that aren’t totally cliche, and wait for the emails to come rolling in. And to a certain extent, I still do insist that is right. Then the women decide whether they will write the men back, and the men sit and contemplate. But I’ve asked women how they feel about this, and they beg to differ. Too many emails, they say, is far more burden than boon. And some insist, and these are very attractive women, mind you, that they don’t actually get as many messages as we lads might think. I mean, I’ve dated them, so you know they must be prettttty foxy.
After the fall of My Space, I eventually created my Ok Cupid account.
I really got into the quizzes that members could take. Ok Cupid prides themselves on the ability to match people based on responses to their surveys.
“The expanded horizons offered by online dating don’t equal unrestricted access to a ready and waiting list of beautiful people.
Every man and woman online still has criteria that must be met by people who want to date him or her, and every guy and girl is still in direct competition with every other person of their gender…
Man poses as woman on dating site to prove his point.
Man assumes women have it easy because they get a ton of attention.
Men scramble to approach women like rats chewing on a meaty chicken bone, and then wonder why women are so turned off by them.Do women have it a lot easier than men, and do hot people in general have it the easiest? Millward created 10 fake OKCupid profiles with similar sounding usernames, with the same written profile, personal stats, level of education, etc. Each account had a different photo of a man or woman of varying attractiveness. However, it’s always good to back up hypotheses with facts, and that’s what Jon Millward did with this experiment, posted on his eponymous blog.Perhaps my perspective here might help you when seeking your next mate on there (or not). I turned 19 and I was good with finding and meeting prospective dates on there.You were defined by how cool your My Space layout was – animated GIFs, custom CSS and your favorite embedded You Tube video.
