One thing that I was expecting was the heights of the 20 men to be tall but this was not true.
To do this, I browsed through as many guys as I could and anyone that had 10 or more favorites, I jotted down in my spreadsheet for later analysis.
First off, I would just like to say that finding male profiles with more than 10 favorites was quite a difficult task. Just a rough calculation, I’d say that for about every thirty male online profiles I visited, only one would have 10 or more favorites.
I also want to continue to help those around me I care for to achieve their goals.
WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT: I was raised by a single mother. Made me believe how important it is to treat a woman right.
These are a little harder to quantify and there wasn’t anything specific that stood out, with the exception that all 20 profiles had excellent spelling and grammar. As far as helping figure out what the perfect online dating profile is, I suppose we can say that it helps if you are a 30-35 year old male, good profile pictures, athletic, looking for a long term relationship and have a well written profile, then you are golden.
None of them were overly long, usually only two to three maximum of paragraphs, while a couple were shorter with only about one paragraph. For everyone else, don’t despair, take what you know and adapt as best you can to compete, after all, there are plenty of fish in the sea.
For the relationship type, “Long Term” and “Dating” were the two most common listed in the “Looking For” section with one guy listing “Friends.” This was interest that long term relationships were valued almost equally as the guys just listing the dating option.
I suppose this would prove that women are looking for guys that can be in a committed relationship. He really hit everything on the head, covering a great deal about him and what he was looking for in a short amount of space. It’s a lot of information to cover, especially since the sample size of this was 20 male profiles, but please keep in mind that these guys were the cream of the crop… Also, I know I left out a bunch of categories like religion, race, have a car, etc, etc, but that would take up way to much time right now and I think I already covered the basics.
Also, it’s important to note that the other categories like: intimate encounters, activity partner, hang out, talk/email, and other relationship were none existent in this group of guys. In the future, I’ll likely expand on this study to include both a larger sample size and include more category data.
Now on to the written part of the Plentyof Fish profiles, the ‘About Me’ section. Collecting this type of information on Plenty of Fish takes a long time, so if anyone out there is interested in collaborating on a larger scale study similar to this, please let me know.
Some even had their picture ratings averaging around 4 on a 1 to 10 scale!
