Ratio of men to women on internet dating sites
There was only one way to find out: put up a fake woman’s profile and see what happens. A friend of mine had paid for his Match profile in advance, but had met a great girl and no longer needed it.
Dying to find out what it was really like for the females, we jumped into action.
The interactions were unique because of the anonymity given by using My Space.
A recent study found that black people of all ages were 10 times more likely to initiate contact with white people than other black people.
No one was funny or clever, no one was creative, no one seemed to really address her profile at all. And most of the messages were blatant copy and paste jobs. The quality of the messages didn’t improve, and the numbers decreased rapidly. Guys may have to do all the work, but it’s a guilt free endeavor.
I felt so bad I wanted to write Suzie a note myself. Pretty soon Suzie Q was getting one, maybe two emails a day. Either we succeed or we don’t, but we can forget about it and move on to the next battle.
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.
