OkCupid Has Been Lying To You!

As revealed yesterday in a blog post, OkCupid has revealed that they have experimented on their members by manipulating how compatible matches were, and removing profile pictures to see of that had an impact on responses to ads, among other things.

We trust online dating services to do their best to find us a match in life and love. By “experimenting” with how the profiles are that completed by members are displayed to other members and by taking liberties with how we are told their matching system works, the success or failure of the individual member becomes secondary to the data that OkCupid generates about their members.

Certainly, as long as online dating remains two-dimensional, there is only the possibility of meeting someone you will like. But by manipulating compatibility results OkCupid has crossed the line for being a trustworthy dating service, regardless of how much or little we know about how they generate compatible matches between members.

This quote taken from the blog post is deceiving:
“… if you use the Internet, you’re the subject of hundreds of experiments at any given time, on every site. That’s how websites work.”

Websites may re-align their content, write headlines to garner more attention, but at the center of the written word is supposed to be the truth about the subject at hand. By overstepping that boundary OkCupid has certainly disrespected their 30 million members.

Teens fall to death having sex on balcony

Yes, sex is risky.
People have heart attacks, they beak bones and yes, they do it in the wrong places.

These two teens did what many of us have done but with very unexpected results… They died.

Moral of the story? Test the structure before you bump up against it.

The 20 Words to Use in Your Profile to Be More Attractive

Eharmony.co.uk has released a survey by scientists that reveal the top 20 words that you should use in your profile answers to be more attractive to the opposite sex.

While the words in and of themselves don’t change your match worthiness, they certainly add to the attraction factor that will help you receive more responses to your profile.

Using these “date factor” words will help you to be more attractive, even beyond your profile picture, although you till need to follow the rules for proper, effective profile pictures.

Women that use these words get better responses:
Sweet +46%
Ambitious +39%
Thoughtful +30%
Spontaneous +30%
Physically fit +22%
Funny +21%
Outgoing +19%
Optimistic +17%
Hard working +17%
Passionate +16%

Men that use these words get better responses:
Physically fit +69%
Ambitious +64%
Perceptive +63%
Passionate +53%
Optimistic +44%
Funny +38%
Spontaneous +33%
Thoughtful +21%
Affectionate +17%
Outgoing + 17%

Just keep in mind, it’s not enough to “say it”, you have to “be it”.

Making The Most Of Your Free Communication Weekend

With just a couple of days left in Canada’s May Free Communication Weekend (the USA Free Communication Weekend is coming soon) I thought I’d share a few tips for getting the most of the time you have to use the guided communication this dating event offers.

While it’s true that you are using eharmony’s preset questions to discover possible matches, there is a lot to learn about your possible match within this promotion.

You’ll want to complete your profile as much as possible, even though only premium members will see your photo or be able to email you and call you within eharmony’s safe messaging system.

Start by sending out smiles to members that catch your interest. Click on their name and then click the right arrow on the screen to read their profile. Not everything is revealed but there is enough to help you learn more about them and begin the guided communication to learn even more.

This system of contact, although limited and quickly exhausted, does give you great insight into the person you are messaging and whether or not the upgrade to premium is worth it at this time.

You’ll want to send out about 10 smiles to get started and answer a whole lot of questions too.

Prepare to spend a few hours throughout the free communication event to use it to your best advantage.

I’d be really surprised if you didn’t find at least 4 or 5 members out of the 10 you send smiles to that are worth a couple of dollars to contact further.

It’s an exciting time to date online. Plenty of active members and learning about the potential for love that you are not aware of if you don’t take part.

Get started now!

Dating Profile Headline of the Day

Saturday is a great day to date.
You have the freedom of hours to meet, and extend, the things you want to do together.

But first you have to connect, then you have to meet.

This headline will help you to get someone’s attention:
“It’s not just another day, it’s our first day!”

Have a good time.

Dating Profile Headline of the Day

Make your move my being BOLD.

There’s an old salesman story that if you don’t ask for the sale you’ll miss it 100% of the time.

The same thing goes for dates. If you don’t ask it won’t happen.

While your dating profile is there to work for you, introducing you and possibly bringing you closer to people you’ll like, if you don’t ask you won’t get anywhere.

So while you’re busy clicking through hundreds of profiles looking for that one special one that stands out, take some time and send some messages to the 50% matches. Computers can only be so right, right?

For your headline today give this a try:
“We might not be 100% perfect but then again, I’m not either.”

Be BOLD and go forth to date.
