Common problems in dating
This can be annoying at best, but can be very disturbing, and has driven women to quit online dating sites entirely.Dating sites should allow its users to easily (and anonymously) let the system know when they’re getting these type of unwelcome messages.Here’s what they said, followed by my thoughts on how they might overcome these dating problems and attract their best relationship. The other B, the brain, is just as important, especially as you’re getting to know a woman. Anyone who’s looking for a true connection is more likely to find it with someone closer to their age. ◊♦◊ People in big cities say it’s hard to meet anyone.In terms of attraction, when you connect deeply at this level, attraction can grow. Ladies, you can’t do anything about the men who want a midlife-crisis-Barbie-Doll. ◊♦◊ Guys, if you’re comparing all the women you date to your ex, or you’re still blaming her for your problems, please get therapy and work this stuff out. Look beyond degrees and discover whether the person you’re dating has character and integrity. People in remote cities say they have no one to date.Although places like e Harmony, and Ok Cupid claim to have algorithms that will help you find your match, there is no proof the algorithms actually work.It’s true many relationships are formed by people meeting on these sites; what’s unproven is whether the site’s algorithms have anything to do with this.Part of the problem is how difficult it is to predict compatibility between two individuals. Who did you find compatible, but without chemistry?
On sites with unrestricted messaging (such as Ok Cupid and Plenty of Fish), women get way too many messages–sometimes 50-100 per day if the profile is particularly attractive. This turns into a problem for men, as well–it’s much harder for a man’s message to get a response.Some sites deal with this by only giving you a few matches per day (such as e Harmony) or only one (such as Coffee Meets Bagel).This certainly helps reduce the onslaught of messages, but a lot of people still want to feel they have more options.Of course, lots of people will still ignore this advice, so in addition, dating sites could crowdsource this issue.By allowing women to rate messages–with categories such as ‘overtly sexual’ or ‘generic’ (‘hey girl what’s up’)–the system could track this information.
