Statistical analysis online dating

: What follows is an ostensibly statistical analysis of the messages and profiles of people I’ve met on Coffee Meets Bagel/Hinge to see if I can predict compatibility. Also in Manhattan, another 22-year-old (yours truly), a grad student who was not quiet at all and in fact had a strong bias towards noise-making, was about to learn the same thing*.

Most of the matching process on these websites require you to fill our an elaborate compatibility questionnaire.

Depending on your answers, you can easily find eligible men/women for a casual friendship or serious relationship.

My friend Rachel first suggested I use it, but I didn’t immediately warm to the one match a day thing. I started using Hinge around October 2014, and I added it to this analysis when I decided I needed more conversation data.

This covers dates that happened between January 1st 2014 and December 30th 2014.

By 2005, 37 percent of single, American Internet users had used online dating sites, according to the Pew Research Center. It was second only to “meeting through friends” as a way of finding a partner.

The report by Finkel’s team, a meta-analysis of hundreds of studies related to online dating and relevant human behavior, says that in just one month last year, there were 25 million people using online dating sites.

In this Buzzle article, we will provide the statistics for the same.

"Generally speaking, women who participate in online dating are looking for a long-term relationship, where the men we encountered were not necessarily looking for 'Mrs. Right Now.'" According to Consumer Affairs, there are approximately 1000 online dating sites at present, each determined to help you find the 'love of your life'.

I also went on a bunch of second dates, a handful of third dates, a smattering of fourth dates, and some past that. The purpose of this analysis is to understand how to predict whether or not I’ll be compatible with someone based on his profile and the messages that he sends.
