For the study, the scientists created 14 fake profiles of male and female Tinder users and set them loose in New York and London.
The fake users liked everyone — thousands of people — within a 100-mile radius.
However, it’s always good to back up hypotheses with facts, and that’s what Jon Millward did with this experiment, posted on his eponymous blog.
“The expanded horizons offered by online dating don’t equal unrestricted access to a ready and waiting list of beautiful people.
The fake women, on the other hand, matched with others 10.5% of the time.
Interestingly, most of the matches for the fake women fake men came from men, suggesting that homosexual men are more willing to swipe right than heterosexual women are.
Once considered a realm inhabited only by the socially awkward, online dating is now just another tool in the toolbox, no matter whether you’re looking for a hook-up or your soulmate.....
It’s far too complex, scary and difficult for mere mortals – so let’s bridge the gap by asking both men and women what doesn’t work when it comes to online dating Dating has gone digital.
Research firm Global Web Index surveyed 32 countries, and found that 62% of dating app users are men.
(No word on the percentage of Tinder-loving bros who take selfies with babies or tigers). In 2013, Pew Research Center found that men were more active on dating apps and sites.
And one thing that should be worrisome for straight men is the size of their disadvantage in the market.
