Eventually as more and more men (late majority) joined the site, I observed two problems.First, was the women became less trusting, less open and much more selective in who they even talk to.But I am a guy who is fond of online dating sites, so I have a few tips that might help you when using them.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.
After the fall of My Space, I eventually created my Ok Cupid account.You were defined by how cool your My Space layout was – animated GIFs, custom CSS and your favorite embedded You Tube video.Very rarely was anything of substance shared there and more or less, everyone had the same opportunity to meet and connect with others.You can’t be too disappointed when you don’t get a reply.Next, you could say to yourself, “Hmm…if all the other women are writing to the top 5%, that means those men in the 50-90th percentile are comparatively being neglected.” Thus, you’re going to have a lot more success writing to the proverbial “6’s” and “7s” than the “10’s”.• The average male sender gets a 27% reply rate from the most attractive females. A huge problem with online dating is that we have an unrealistic set of expectations about how things work.In other words, if you’re getting 1 out of 3 people writing back to you, you’re doing okay. If you’re writing to a very attractive person, you now know you’re competing with everyone else on the website.I can think of a couple instances off the top of my head.Both men are balding, but professionals, super nice, intelligent, thoughtful, in good shape, and fun to hang around. I haven’t seen the other’s profile (he’s a friend from church) but, really?I thought the employees were far better looking than their high quality users. Though I’d also be curious if they had more stratified data (like having people rate people who are similar in age or in the age range that the person is willing to date, or by race, education level, etc.).That being said, I do think women have unrealistic expectations about men’s appearance.
