Online Dating

Here’s an article about online dating that we can read for class on Friday: http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2011/07/04/looking-for-someone

It’s a few years old, and things are changing fast, but I think it will still be useful to discus.

If you’re interested, the OKCupid blog has a aggregated a lot of data from their dating platform and done some entertaining analysis. Here is probably their most read blog post: http://blog.okcupid.com/index.php/the-4-big-myths-of-profile-pictures/  You might also look around on the blog and see what else you find.

I’m curious to hear people’s thoughts.
