Love on the Web: scientific explanation


We live in the era of social networks and mobile applications that help choose the perfect restaurant for dinner, find the nearest dentistry to the house, see the new movie distribution at a convenient time and even find love. According to statistics, among the adult population of developed countries, the number of those who are registered in online dating services is 1:10. And their total number around the world is about 91 million people. And if once the prospect of a wedding with a virtual single seemed like a fantasy, today this happens more and more often.


Love on the Internet: a scientific approach


37-year-old Dr. Xand van Tulleken agreed to become a participant in the Air Force experiment, designed to find out how the "scientific approach" to the search for the secondsinglehalf on the Web. To do this, he turned to research on a topic conducted by experts at Queen Mary University, where he found that the correct (read: attracting the most attention) questionnaire should contain 70% of information about yourself and 30% of what you are looking for in a partner.

Empirically, he managed to find out that single women, however, are more attracted to men for dating, who, when describing their qualities, demonstrate courage, bravery and willingness to take risks, rather than altruism and kindness. He also said that if you want to make people think that you are real fun, you should not write about it, but somehow show it.

Interesting observations


One more interesting observation: people registered in online dating services write much more often to those whose names begin with letters from the first half of the alphabet. Psychologists suggest that this may occur due to the subconscious association of such names with life and professional success.

It is interesting to note that some relationship experts recommend using the mathematical theory of optimal stopping to find the perfect single match for dating on the Internet. Its essence comes down to the fact that you have to look through 100-150 accounts of people of the opposite sex, but do not scroll through the list, but dwell on the person you really like, as if you did not have the opportunity to go back and look at each of them again. According to several studies, this algorithm increases the chances of success by about 37%.
