Life love and online dating
Something as simple as the order in which online dating profiles are viewed could boost someone's odds of getting a date.
Moreover, the researchers suggest “'nice guys' looking to finish first may want to avoid paying for options that offer to bump their profile for premium viewing.” This is especially true if their profile is viewed and being contrasted with someone who comes across as emotionally unavailable.
In a study earlier this year, women were more likely to evaluate the likelihood of getting a response from a user who they’ve messaged because they were self-conscious, or aware of differences in attractiveness.
This led them to have a better chance of getting responses from users than the oblivious men.
Women usually feel the worst about themselves, but in this case, men were more likely to suffer. However, now that the stigma with online dating has virtually disappeared, the average user must use good screening skills to weed out the poor matches from the good ones.
Online dating is going to continue to grow along with the technological advances taking place.
Justin Lavelle, a communications director at Been has seen substantial growth in online daters between the ages of 18 to 24 and 55 to 64 this past year.“Both demographics have doubled in size in the last 3 years,” according to Lavelle.
Technology and dating have evolved into a dynamic duo when it comes to finding love in the digital age.
Online dating is a big part of our culture, with 15 percent of Americans using online dating sites or mobile dating apps.
