Well, I’ve personally used Match, e Harmony, Plenty of Fish and OK Cupid.
They all have some similarities as well as some major differences: e Harmony After you’ve completed that first major step of filling out all of those questions and essays, you can essentially sit back as e Harmony sends you profiles of people that it thinks are right for you.
Today we’re only discussing the statistical aspects of the women you’re messaging.
The factors listed below are including the factors that are related directly to you, like your attractiveness or how well-written your profile is.
I have friends that love this because it takes some of the trepidation out of meeting people; there’s always the sense that “Hey, e Harmony thinks we’d get along.” You have to wait for e Harmony to get around to sending you profiles and you may not be a fan of whom it thinks you’d like.
To explore this topic, I pulled aside two individuals who I knew were hunting for a long-term relationship using online dating websites, and asked them about their experiences with the services.
Ironically enough, if you could take the best of those women and the best of those men, and place them in a big room where they could sit at a table and ask each other questions in person – you’d probably have 4 or 5 new match-ups by the end of the night. All they have to do is get online every day, sitting on their princess throne and file through the dozens or more profiles of men who have messaged them throughout the day.
The problem with online dating is that you can’t see the person’s face when they’re telling you about themselves. I think it’s hard for guys to comprehend the world of online dating from a woman’s perspective. They then flippantly toss out all of those well thought out, carefully crafted messages from most of those poor schmucks, and then they log onto their Facebook accounts to complain to their girlfriends that there are no “good men” left in the world.
You can’t watch as they smile, and that smile spreads up into their eyes and transforms their face into one of the most beautiful things you’ve ever seen – a thing that warms your heart and makes you realize you want to spend more time with the person. Unfortunately, the reality is nowhere near that fantasy.
To get some insight into what women go through on these dating websites, I pulled aside one of my family members who I knew had spent some time on these sites looking for her future spouse.
