Data and Online Dating Success
Why All The Questions?
I know… you’re wondering what the hell data has to do with online dating success. Stick with me! When you sign up for any online dating site whether it be a mainstream site or a niche sex dating website you’re almost always confronted with a range of almost intrusive questions wanting to know almost everything about you from your income to your sex life. What’s it got to do with them right?
Is it really possible that you can provide all this personal information about you and the computer will spew out your perfect match? The data you provide is analysed and sorted by computer algorithms. If you think about it that kind of makes sense. Put simply its matching one person’s requirements with another’s. All of the online dating sites are competing with each other to come up with the best matchmaking algorithm to ensure their users have success. Online dating is so popular now that the most popular sites have literally millions of members.
A Step Too Far?
These algorithmic computations have been taken to the next level by adult dating sites such as http://www.local-sex-search.com who also match your sexual preferences… a step too far? In theory you should be able to enter exactly what you are looking for and the computer works out not only who fits that match based on your preferences but also your details with the search requirement of the other person.
Where Does The Data Come From?
The sign up stage is actually very important. The data you enter is what matches are based on so if the information they are requesting is not particularly relevant to what you are looking for then you’re probably not going to have much success on the site. If however the questions seem very relevant to you then you have a good chance of dating success. As long as you answer the questions honestly (many people don’t) then you should have no problems. Be careful not be idealistic but do be realistic. Make a list of the things that are really important to you and make a ‘Top 10’ and be sure to answer them honestly when asked during setting up your profile. So many people get frustrated with so many questions but it really is the most important part of setting up an online dating profile.
Ultimately the computer will do its best to provide you with a list of potential matches. It can’t do it all though so obviously you will need to be willing to meet its suggestions and make a human decision about whether the person is right for you. That’s the fun part. What’s not fun is ending up going on dead end dates with people that you have nothing in common with. Honesty is the best policy when setting up your dating profile. Let the computer do the hard bit and you can just enjoy the dating game!
