In , social psychologists Benjamin Karney , Harry Reis , and others published an analysis of online dating in Psychological Science in the Public Interest that concluded that the matching algorithms of online dating services are only negligibly better at matching people than if they were matched at random. Users' activities reflect their tastes and attractiveness, or the lack thereof, they reasoned.
E-commerce firms also employ this " collaborative filtering " technique. Nevertheless, it is still not known what the algorithm for finding the perfect match would be. However, while collaborative filtering and recommender systems have been demonstrated to be more effective than matching systems based on similarity and complementarity,    they have also been demonstrated to be highly skewed to the preferences of early users and against racial minorities such as African Americans and Hispanic Americans which led to the rise of niche dating sites for those groups.
Opinions and usage of online dating services also differ widely. That is, online dating sites use the conceptual framework of a "marketplace metaphor" to help people find potential matches, with layouts and functionalities that make it easy to quickly browse and select profiles in a manner similar to how one might browse an online store. Under this metaphor, members of a given service can both "shop" for potential relationship partners and "sell" themselves in hopes of finding a successful match.
Attitudes towards online dating improved visibly between and , the Pew Research Center found. At the same time, usage among those between the ages of 55 and 64 doubled. People in their mids to mids all saw noticeable increases in usage, but people aged 25 to 34 saw no change. Nevertheless, only one in three had actually gone out on a date with someone they met online. Only five out of a hundred said they were married to or in a committed long-term relationship with someone they met online.
Online daters may have more liberal social attitudes compared to the general population in the United States. In all, there was little difference among the sexes with regards to their opinions on online dating. It is not clear that social networking websites and online dating services are leading to the formation of long-term intimate relationships more efficiently. In , a majority of U.
In , the percentage of all U. Kenrick , Sara E. Gutierres, Laurie L. Goldberg, Steven Neuberg , Kristin L. Zierk, and Jacquelyn M. Krones have demonstrated experimentally that following exposure to photographs or stories about desirable potential mates, human subjects decrease their ratings of commitment to their current partners,   while social psychologist David Buss has estimated that approximately 30 percent of the men on Tinder are married,  and a significant criticism of Facebook has been its effect on its users' marriages.
Online dating services offer goldmines of information for social scientists studying human mating behavior. Data from the Chinese online dating giant Zhenai. Profession is also quite important. Chinese men favor women working as primary school teachers and nurses while Chinese women prefer men in the IT or finance industry. Women in IT or finance are the least desired. Zhenai enables users to send each other digital "winks.
Men typically prefer women three years younger than they are whereas women look for men who are three years older on average. However, this changes if the man becomes exceptionally wealthy; the more money he makes the more likely he is to look for younger women. In general, people in their 20s employ the "self-service dating service" while women in their late 20s and up tend to use the matchmaking service.
This is because of the social pressure in China on "leftover women," meaning those in their late 20s but still not married. Women who prefer not to ask potentially embarrassing questions — such as whether both spouses will handle household finances, whether or not they will live with his parents, or how many children he wants to have, if any — will get a matchmaker to do it for them.
Both sexes prefer matchmakers who are women. In a paper, sociologist George Yancey from the University of North Texas observed that prior research from the late s to the early s revealed that African-Americans were the least desired romantic partners compared to all other racial groups in the United States, a fact that is reflected in their relatively low interracial marriage rates.
They were also less likely to form interracial friendships than other groups. According to data from the U. Census, 5. For his research, Yancey downloaded anonymized data of almost a thousand heterosexual individuals from Yahoo! He discovered that Internet daters felt lukewarm towards racial exogamy in general.
In particular, Dating members of one's own racial group was the most popular option, at Those who were more willing to out-date than average tended to be younger men. Education was not a predictor of willingness to out-date. This means that the higher interracial marriage rates among the highly educated were due to the fact that higher education provided more opportunities to meet people of different races. There is, however, great variation along gender lines.
In , Cynthia Feliciano, Belinda Robnett, and Golnaz Komaie from the University of California, Irvine , investigated the preferences of online daters long gendered and racial lines by selecting profiles on Yahoo! Personals — then one of the top Internet romance sites in the U. They found that consistent with prior research, including speed-dating studies, women tended to be pickier than men.
In short, after opposite-sex members of their own group, white men were open to dating Asian women, and white women black men than members of other racial or ethnic groups. At the same time, Latinos were generally favored by both white men and women willing to out-date. Feliciano, Robnett, and Komaie found that white women who described themselves as athletic, average, fit, or slim were more likely to exclude black men than those who considered themselves large, thick, or voluptuous.
Body type, however, was not a predictor for white women's avoidance of Asian men, nor was it for the white men's preferences. On the other hand, white men with a particular body type in mind were considerably more likely to exclude black women while women who preferred a particular height were slightly more likely to exclude Asian men.
Women who deemed themselves very liberal or liberal were less likely than apolitical, moderate, or conservative women to exclude black men. In contrast, left-leaning white women were slightly more likely to exclude Asian men. Being Jewish was the perfect predictor of black exclusion. All white men and women who identified as Jewish and who had a racial preference excluded blacks, and all white Jewish women also avoided Asian men. White men with a religious preference were four times as likely to exclude black women, and white women with the same were twice as likely to exclude black men.
However, religious preferences were not linked to avoiding Asians. Feliciano, Robnett, and Komaie found some support for this. In particular, white men's exclusion of black women was linked to the perception that black women deviate from Western idealized notions of femininity, for example by being bossy, while their favoring Asian women was likely due to the latter's portrayal in the media as "the embodiment of perfect womanhood" and "good wives. Therefore, all groups except white women were willing to out-date, albeit with great variations.
For blacks willing to out-date, Latinos were most preferred. In , Elizabeth Bruch and M. Newman from the University of Michigan published in the journal Science Advances a study of approximately , heterosexual individuals living in New York City, Chicago, Boston and Seattle, who used a certain "popular, free online-dating service. For a man, his desirability increased till the age of 50; for a woman, her desirability declined steeply after the age of 18 till the age of In terms of educational attainment, the more educated a man was, the more desirable he became; for a woman, however, her desirability rose up to the bachelor's degree before declining.
Bruch suggested that besides individual preferences and partner availability, this pattern may be due to the fact that by the late s, women were more likely to attend and graduate from university. Developmental psychologist Michelle Drouin, who was not involved in the study, told The New York Times this finding is in accordance with theories in psychology and sociology based on biological evolution in that youth is a sign of fertility.
She added that women with advanced degrees are often viewed as more focused on their careers than family. In half of these, the man was at least five years older. Aided by the text-analysis program Linguistic Inquiry and Word Count, Bruch and Newman discovered that men generally had lower chances of receiving a response after sending more "positively worded" messages. Therefore, studying women's replies yielded much insight into their preferences. Very few responded to the messages of people less desirable than they were.
Keeping messages concise is well-advised. Bruch recommended sending out more greeting messages, noting that people sometimes managed to upgrade their 'league'. Michael Rosenfeld, a sociologist not involved with the study, told The Atlantic , "The idea that persistence pays off makes sense to me, as the online-dating world has a wider choice set of potential mates to choose from. The greater choice set pays dividends to people who are willing to be persistent in trying to find a mate.
See derivation of the optimal policy. However, making online contact is only the first step, and indeed, most conversations failed to birth a relationship. As two potential partners interact more and more, the superficial information available from a dating website or smartphone application becomes less important than their characters.
Despite being a platform designed to be less centered on physical appearance,  OkCupid co-founder Christian Rudder stated in that the male OkCupid users who were rated most physically attractive by female OkCupid users received 11 times as many messages as the lowest-rated male users did, the medium-rated male users received about four times as many messages, and the one-third of female users who were rated most physically attractive by the male users received about two-thirds of all messages sent by male users.
According to University of Texas at Austin psychologist David Buss , "Apps like Tinder and OkCupid give people the impression that there are thousands or millions of potential mates out there. One dimension of this is the impact it has on men's psychology. When there is Before , most online dating services matched people according to their autobiographical information, such as interests, hobbies, future plans, among other things. But the advent of Tinder that year meant that first impressions could play a crucial role.
For social scientists studying human courtship behavior , Tinder offers a much simpler environment than its predecessors. In order to minimize the number of variables, they created profiles of white heterosexual people only. For each sex, there were three accounts using stock photographs, two with actual photographs of volunteers, one with no photos whatsoever, and one that was apparently deactivated.
The researchers pointedly only used pictures of people of average physical attractiveness. Tyson and his team wrote an algorithm that collected the biographical information of all the matches, liked them all, then counted the number of returning likes.
They found that men and women employed drastically different mating strategies. Men liked a large proportion of the profiles they viewed, but received returning likes only 0. Men received matches at a much slower rate than women. Tyson and his team found that for the first two-thirds of messages from each sex, women sent them within 18 minutes of receiving a match compared to five minutes for men. Men's first messages had an average of a dozen characters, and were typical simple greetings; by contrast, initial messages by women averaged characters.
Tyson and his collaborators found that the male profiles that had three profile pictures received matches while the male profiles with only one profile picture received only 44 matches or approximately a 5 to 1 ratio. Additionally, male profiles that had a biography received 69 matches while those without received only 16 matches or approximately a 4 to 1 ratio. By sending out questionnaires to frequent Tinder users, the researchers discovered that the reason why men tended to like a large proportion of the women they saw was to increase their chances of getting a match.
This led to a feedback loop in which men liked more and more of the profiles they saw while women could afford to be even more selective in liking profiles because of a greater probability of a match. The mathematical limit of the feedback loop occurs when men like all profiles they see while women find a match whenever they like a profile. It was not known whether some evolutionarily stable strategy has emerged, nor has Tinder revealed such information. Tyson and his team found that even though the men-to-women ratio of their data set was approximately one, the male profiles received 8, matches in total while the female profiles received only matches in total because the vast majority of the matches for both the male and female profiles came from male profiles with 86 percent of the matches for the male profiles alone coming from other male profiles , leading the researchers to conclude that homosexual men were "far more active in liking than heterosexual women.
The researchers were not sure why this happened. Sites with specific demographics have become popular as a way to narrow the pool of potential matches. Some dating services have been created specifically for those living with HIV and other venereal diseases in an effort to eliminate the need to lie about one's health in order to find a partner. Most free dating websites depend on advertising revenue, using tools such as Google AdSense and affiliate marketing. Since advertising revenues are modest compared to membership fees, this model requires numerous page views to achieve profitability.
However, Sam Yagan describes dating sites as ideal advertising platforms because of the wealth of demographic data made available by users. In , a variation of the online dating model emerged in the form of introduction sites, where members have to search and contact other members, who introduce them to other members whom they deem compatible.
Introduction sites differ from the traditional online dating model, and attracted many users and significant investor interest. In China, the number of separations per a thousand couples doubled, from 1. Demand for online dating services among divorcees keeps growing, especially in the large cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou.
In addition, more and more people are expected to use online dating and matchmaking services as China continues to urbanize in the late s and s. As online dating services are not required to routinely conduct background checks on members, it is possible for profile information to be misrepresented or falsified. One online dating service once introduced a real name policy, but that was later taken removed due to unpopularity with its users.
Only some online dating services are providing important safety information such as STD status of its users     or other infectious diseases, but many do not. Some online dating services, which are popular in gay, bisexual trans and queer people  are sometimes being used by people as a means of meeting these audiences for the purpose of gaybashing. A form of misrepresentation is that members may lie about their height, weight, age, or marital status in an attempt to market or brand themselves in a particular way.
Ghosting appears to be becoming more common. Online dating site members may try to balance an accurate representation with maintaining their image in a desirable way. Some profiles may not even represent real humans but rather they may be fake "bait profiles" placed online by site owners to attract new paying members, or "spam profiles" created by advertisers to market services and products.
Opinions on regarding the safety of online dating are mixed. Online subscription-based services can suffer from complaints about billing practices. Some online dating service providers may have fraudulent membership fees or credit card charges. Furthermore, different functionalities may be offered to members who have paid or not paid for subscriptions, resulting in some confusion around who can view or contact whom. Consolidation within the online dating industry has led to different newspapers and magazines now advertising the same website database under different names.
In the UK, for example, Time Out "London Dating" , The Times "Encounters" , and The Daily Telegraph "Kindred Spirits" , all offer differently named portals to the same service—meaning that a person who subscribes through more than one publication has unwittingly paid more than once for access to the same service. Little is known about the sex ratio controlled for age. When one gets into the specialty niche websites where the primary demographic is male, one typically gets a very unbalanced ratio of male to female or female to male.
Studies have suggested that men are far more likely to send messages on dating sites than women. There is some evidence that there may be differences in how women online rate male attractiveness as opposed to how men rate female attractiveness. Gay rights groups have complained that certain websites that restrict their dating services to heterosexual couples are discriminating against homosexuals.
Homosexual customers of the popular eHarmony dating website have made many attempts to litigate discriminatory practices. A class action lawsuit alleged Match. In , a former employee sued adultery website Ashley Madison claiming repetitive strain injuries as creating fake profiles in one three week span "required an enormous amount of keyboarding" which caused the worker to develop severe pain in her wrists and forearms.
In January , an already-married Facebook user attempting to close a pop-up advertisement for Zoosk. In , It's Just Lunch International was the target of a New York class action alleging unjust enrichment as IJL staff relied on a uniform, misleading script which informed prospective customers during initial interviews that IJL already had at least two matches in mind for those customers' first dates regardless of whether or not that was true.
As soon as a new user set up a free profile, he or she began to receive messages that appeared to be from other members living nearby, expressing romantic interest or a desire to meet. However, users were unable to respond to these messages without upgrading to a paid membership The lawsuit alleged that her fellow executives and co-founders Rad and Mateen had engaged in discrimination, sexual harassment, and retaliation against her, while Tinder's corporate supervisor, IAC's Sam Yagan, did nothing.
The law requires dating services meeting specific criteria—including having as their primary business to connect U. In , the state of New Jersey passed a law which requires the sites to disclose whether they perform background checks.
