I retweeted this this morning, but reposting here cause its such an awesome blog post.
Basically, this guy (John Willward), registered 10 dummy profiles on dating sites, and monitored them for 4 months.
Each woman received at least one message, but the two best looking women received 581% more messages than the other three combined.
Make sure you dont miss the other classic post this guy did:
Nice share! This blog seems to be solid, thank you tijn.
Damn that is a solid post from that guy. Thanks for the info tijn
Pretty Women get more messages, Shocker.
Blog seems interesting though, I might dip my toe into dating offers coming up here soon.
Thats a fair summary!
Very nice, going to pass along (will give credit though!!!)
Those experiments were great. I tried to do something along the same lines on POF. Split testing pick up lines, and see how many messages were sent to a profile based on each pick up line. It feel to pieces when POF started deleting inactive profiles .
That was the reason for this initial post: https://www.mrgreen.am/general/wanted…pick-up-lines/
Nice !!! Thank you for this !
Awesome idea Zo. Maybe Ben should help out and allow some of this "research" to take place.
This is why okcupid was so so excellent!
Unfortunately they were acquired and the posts stopped about a year ago.
no shock, but good info none the less
