In the first profile I used my own pics and in the second one (I'll call it 'instagram guy' profile), I used pics of a gym going guy on instagram.
In my own profile I talked about myself, my interests, hobbies etc. My profile got 2 replies and the 'instagram guy' profile got over 35 replies, from the same women who didn't reply to me.
What I uncovered were some harsh realities about online dating that no one ever talks about.
OKCupid was acquired by Match in 2011, and that article has since been taken down (for obvious reasons).In the 'hot guy' profile I only wrote: "Not looking for anything serious. Some of the women who wrote 'not looking for a one night stand or quick fun', 'looking for a long term relationship' agreed to meet up and have naughty fun with this 'instagram guy'.So I got 2 replies and the 'instagram guy' got over 35 replies. The only difference was that this instagram guy had six pack abs.Online dating sites love to boast about the millions of members they have.But as it turns out, they’re heaving shovelfuls of statistical manure at you.
