OkCupid Experiment

I read the news a lot.  Apparently, this guy Jon Millward did an experiment (I am not a researcher, but I don't think his research was that precise) and Huffington Post picked it up.  Better looking girls get 581% more responses than other girls.  Better looking girls getting more emails does not surprise me.  What I did find interesting from the article:

"While some people find the cycle of online dating to be "hellish," the number of users continues to rise. According to MBA Programs, in 2007 about 20 million people visited or used online dating sites. That number has now doubled, with around 40 million romantic hopefuls now looking for love online."

I knew more sites were popping up, but 40 million are online dating????


  1. Sometimes, I'm tempted to narrow my pool with more niche dating sites. While it's great to have choices, it also decreases accountability, especially for men. If one smart, sexy, successful girl won't tolerate their immaturity (and jump into bed), they can easily find another one. I'm a tad bitter :)

  2. What's with SF being overrun by sluts? They are ruining it for the rest of us!
