The Life of a 10/10 Male (Tinder Case Study)(Pics)
By Carly Stern For Dailymail. An year-old woman created a fake profile to go undercover on Tinder to see what it’s really like for men on dating apps — and she was shocked to discover that it was not as easy as she imagined. YouTuber Alexander Grace teamed up with his friend Sada for the social experiment, providing her with photos of himself to use for her fake Tinder profile.

A few months ago, we asked Carrie Lloyd to delve into the world of online dating. She reveals what it takes for a single Christian woman to hook up via cyberspace. I could manage the vertically challenged thing, but there was no spark. And you? I might ask her for the number of her colourist though. This has been my life for the past two months. A dedication to online dating, just for you; for this article.
Twenty years on from the launch of the first online dating site, Match. Much of the original stigma seems to be slipping away, and according to the Online Dating Association, online dating is now the most common way in which relationships in the UK get started. So, at 35, and still yet to find the right man to marry, would the online dating world be full of desperate souls seeking marriage so their lives could begin?
For two months I would trial online agencies from my current home in a small town in northern California. I also roped in two girlfriends based in London, who are also single, and in their 30s.
O nly eating and sleeping could be said to have a stronger grasp on the steering wheel of our daily behaviour than the thing in our heads that is constantly urging us to find love and have sex. But even an insatiable appetite and overwhelming tiredness are no match for the sudden arrival or breakdown of pure romantic love, or unbridled sexual lust. These are, after all, the states of mind that inspired every one of our direct ancestors to relentlessly pursue love and sex until they succeeded at least once in getting their genes into a new generation.
Women on Tinder have a preference for highly educated men. To do so, we conducted a field experiment on Tinder in which we collected data on 3, fake Facebook profiles (which is a necessary prerequisite to create a Tinder profile).
Take it from a veteran: Online dating suuuuucks. Sure, apps like OkCupid, Tinder, and Hinge cut down on the awkwardness that comes with approaching potential love interests in person and having to discern someone’s singlehood in the first place. But putting aside the fact that even the most complex algorithm can’t always predict in-person chemistry, forcing prospective daters to boil themselves down to a self-summary leads people to not only put across an idealized version of themselves for public consumption, but also encourages people to latch onto the most surface-level aspects to quickly determine whether someone’s worth pursuing romantically.
For women especially, online dating can even be dangerous, leaving them open to harassment or worse from toxic men who feel emboldened by the anonymity of the Internet. And yet, online dating remains popular, thus making it a target ripe for satire. Conceived by Robyn Lynne Norris, who cowrote the show with Bob Ladewig and Frank Caeti, and based in part on her own experiences, the work is basically an extended sketch-comedy show, featuring musical numbers, improvisatory segments with audience participation, and interactive elements the show has its own OkCupid-like app that everyone is encouraged to download and create profiles on before the show.
Instead of a plot, there’s a character arc of sorts: Robyn played in this off-Broadway premiere by Kaitlyn Black , finding herself forced to try OkCupid for the first time, decides to see what works best on the app by creating 38 fake profiles. If that seems overzealous, some of her rules — including never meeting any of the people she converses with online — suggest that this so-called experiment has been designed to fail from the outset.
The cynicism and despair underlying Robyn’s overelaborate ruse is occasionally acknowledged throughout the show, with bits of pathos relating to hints of a troubled romantic past and suggestions that she has trouble making deep connections with people in general peeking through the laughs. For the most part, though, DateMe is content to maintain a frothy tone while doling out its insights. Robyn’s observations of seeing many of the same phrases and personality traits on profiles lead to faux-educational segments in which the rest of the eight-member cast, donning white lab coats Vanessa Leuck designed the colorfully varied costumes , break people down into categories.
And if anything, the two improvisatory segments — one in which the performers speculate on how a first date between two single audience members would go based on their profiles and responses to their questions, the other a dramatization of an audience member’s worst first date — turn out to be the comic highlights of the show or at least, they were at the performance I attended.
Lorin Latarro emphasizes a sense of playfulness in her direction and choreography, especially with a set, designed by David L. Arsenault, that mixes the aesthetic of living rooms and game shows; and projections by Sam Hains that infuse the show with the appropriate feeling of multimedia overload.

It’s nice to believe that the majority of humanity judges each other based on personal virtues and not superficial things like wealth, social status, and beauty. However, we all know that this isn’t the case. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m immediately more suspicious of certain “gnarly-” looking individuals than I am of pretty people. Maybe it’s because I’ve been programmed to think that way, or maybe it’s because I’m like every other human being, and am a shallow jerk. As a very wise and awesome friend of mine says, although we can’t control our first feelings, we can control our reactions to them.
So if you are an individual with initially ugly, shallow thoughts, then it’s up to you to stay thinking those ugly-shallow thoughts, or not Unfortunately, a Tinder experiment yielded some individuals who decided to stay in those ugly, shallow thoughts, just because they thought they’d have a shot at hooking up with an unbelievably hot dude.
This Tinder experiment revealed that more than a couple of ladies didn’t have a problem entertaining a possible relationship with the super-chiseled, super hot Chad, despite his past behavior of assaulting children and his ex-girlfriend. If you hate the kinds of stories that confirm horrible things about humanity, then these conversations aren’t for you.
Or maybe you enjoy feeling superior to people who were willing to give someone who is clearly a bad guy a chance, just because he’s hot. First up is this individual who has no problem breaking the ice with the good-looking dude. The conversation starts off innocuously enough.

Woman creates fake Tinder profile as a man and assumes it will be ‘easy’ to get dates
By Barbara Hoffman. August 14, pm Updated August 14, pm. Newly arrived in Los Angeles and lonely, the writer-comedian had just come off a bad breakup — to a fellow comedian who, during their monthslong gig on a cruise ship, hooked up with the woman in the cabin next door. She attached a goofy-looking photo of herself, posted it and went on with her life.
Three nights later, when Norris met her friend for dinner, she logged on — and found that her kitty-loving alter ego had pawed a nerve. More than a hundred of them!

A Los Angeles comedian created the “worst online dating profile ever” to find out just how horrible a woman has to be before the indecent proposals finally stop. In Alli Reed’s case, men were willing to look past a scary stream of red flags — heavy drinking, drug use, lying about pregnancy — to say hello to a pretty face. So she created the worst persona she could think of, presenting herself as an insensitive, greedy year-old who parties too much, knocks cups out of homeless people’s hands and tricks her parents into paying her bills.
The social experiment was to see if men — Reed’s OkCupid profile stated she was only interested in male relationships — would still bite. She got messages in the first 24 hours of introducing the profile, under the username “AaronCarterFan. You’re better than that. There are women and men out there who are smart, and kind, and challenging, and honest, and a lot of other really positive adjectives.
Around the same time, she met her boyfriend on OkCupid — using a real profile. They’re still dating. The fake profile, which was active for about three weeks late last year, has been deleted. Skip to content. Breaking News Newsletter.
