Plenty Of Fish advertizes itself as the world’s largest dating site, and has more than 90 million users worldwide.
This study only looked at a portion of the US user base.
Michael Mc Dermott, a data scientist at the company who collated the research, said in an email that there were some correlations between being bilingual and other traits that had been found to make people successful on the site.
People who listed a second language on their profile were more likely to fill out more information on their profiles generally, and to be more willing to share information about themselves.
After looking over another user’s profile, you swipe right if you’re interested, and left if you’re not. Aoi Since the study was only concerned with the pronunciation of a woman’s name, not the exact kanji characters used to write it, we can’t pin down which exact rendering was really earning most of a name’ right flicks.
Tinder recently took a look through its data for 2016 and compiled a list of the women’s names that received the most right swipes over the course of the year. As with all the names on this list, Aoi can be written a number of ways, but among the most common are those meaning “hollyhock” (葵) or the color “blue” (碧). Misato One of many names on the list which frequently contains the kanji 美, meaning “beautiful,” Misato can mean “beautiful knowledge” (美知) or “beautiful village” (美里). Mayu Most versions of Mayu include the character 真, or “truth,” such as those which stand for “sole truth” (真唯) or “true evening” (真夕). Kanako The kanji 奈, which has connections to the concept of divinity as well as apples, regularly shows up in the name Kanako, which can roughly be taken to mean “child of great blessings” (加奈子).
The key to making the cut is to zig while everyone else zags and stand out in her mind.
Do women have it a lot easier than men, and do hot people in general have it the easiest? Millward created 10 fake OKCupid profiles with similar sounding usernames, with the same written profile, personal stats, level of education, etc. Each account had a different photo of a man or woman of varying attractiveness.
However, it’s always good to back up hypotheses with facts, and that’s what Jon Millward did with this experiment, posted on his eponymous blog.
More anecdotally, Mc Dermott also noted: “Like having an accent, having a second language can be seen as sexy, worldly.
It is also an indicator of higher education.” Recent research from another dating site, OKCupid, also found that women who said they found education attractive were more likely to find a partner on its platform.
If you don’t get a subject line, make the first line of your email clever and you will be more likely to stand out in her inbox.
