Samples of fake male profiles on dating sites
With such heightened message volume to the most attractive (albeit fake) female dating profiles, Millward found himself in the unique position of being able to read all those messages - and see all the different ways that men competed for the attention and response of a single female when given only one chance to do so.
But what if the most recent friend request you got isn’t actually from someone real?
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...
However, after digging into it deeper he backed away from the statement that "women have it easier" when it comes to online dating.
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.
