Washington post online dating article 2014
FYI: my female clients claim that it‘s a must for a woman to have a terrific picture to get online attention but it's not as important for a man to have one.
This makes sense in part, because men tend to be more visual.
When we first studied online dating habits in 2005, most Americans had little exposure to online dating or to the people who used it, and they tended to view it as a subpar way of meeting people.Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.Today, 12% of 55- to 64-year-olds report ever using an online dating site or mobile dating app versus only 6% in 2013.In the bar scene it's all about your looks; you don't have the luxury of putting your best picture out there because—you're out there—in the flesh.And if you don't physically appeal to your target objective, forget about it; it won't matter if you've got Anderson Cooper's personality.
One factor behind the substantial growth among younger adults is their use of mobile dating apps.
