The profile photos Millward used for his experiment were voted on by three separate people who ranked them by who they thought was hot and what was not - or more correctly, what they likely thought people on Ok Cupid might consider hot.
The judges were not too far off in guessing the attraction habits in the Ok Cupid pool used for the wider United States - though I do wonder who the real people are and how they'd feel if they found out about the results...
e Harmony started in 2000, Ok Cupid in 2004, and more recently, a wave of mobile people-swiping apps, like Tinder and Hinge, have become wildly popular.
But is this a positive development or something to be concerned about?
After his first results, he expanded the project and moved it to England just to see what kind of differences would emerge between the two English-speaking Western countries over time.
He found more of the same: The two most attractive women received 83% of all messages and probably would have gotten more if their inboxes hadn’t maxed out.
Millward decided to put this to the test by making ten fake profiles to see what kind of results he'd get based purely on superficiality.
Instead Millward concluded that while women may have wider selection capabilities, a number of girls are faced with a signal to noise ratio that can render the selection process into a null. Those of us who have come to expect the moon from Jon Millward's experiments won't be disappointed with the Ok Cupid experiment.Simply considered as online meeting people, it makes a ton of sense.I’ve already expressed my argument for why in two posts: one on how critical it is to find the right life partner and how seriously we should take that quest, and another on why going to bars is a terrible life experience.After reading several hundred [messages] in the women’s inboxes, most men compliment the attractive women a lot, they make reference to something in the woman’s profile (you would not believe how many times men mentioned the party tricks and ‘Arrow’ the cheetah from the generic profile I wrote), or they ask a general question about travel or something equally boring.
Based on reading hundreds of eager messages, Millward concluded that a successful message should: The above suggestions may seem like basic advice, but a few of his conclusions are much trickier to execute than you'd think and show that few men (in the UK at least) show that they've read a girl's profile.
And, it sadly appears here that girls with glasses still get the fuzzy end of the lollipop in mainstream dating.
