I’ve actually gotten this question a LOT recently so thought I’d finally put it to rest.
A lot of guys tell me the same thing — that they’ve run experiments where they put out two profiles with the same content, only one of them used their pictures and one of them used a picture of some random good looking guy.
Though their relationship begins with no romantic feelings involved at first, they go on a number of dates in order to reach their common goal: marriage.
If you’re interested in learning more, you may want to start with our about page.I’ll be the first to point out that I have a lot of inherent DISADVANTAGES when doing online dating. Without game OR looks, you’re going to have a lot of trouble with online dating.I’m short, I’m Asian, I’m not traditionally attractive, and I’m certainly not rich. Though if we’re being honest, you’re probably going to have trouble with ANY kind of dating so it’s not that surprising that online dating would be similar.Rather predictably, the better looking guy got better results. Their conclusion was that online dating didn’t work unless they were good looking or tall or white or whatever factor they deemed important. Here’s the thing, though — from a critical thinking perspective, they haven’t really proven ANYTHING by that experiment except that attractive guys are more attractive than less attractive guys.Of COURSE everything else being equal, a more attractive guy will do better than a less attractive guy in a superficial environment where the picture is the only thing you see of the other person. But that certainly does NOT prove that online dating doesn’t work.
