Opencsv online dating
They gave online dating sites the lowest satisfaction scores Consumer Reports has ever seen for services rendered—lower even than for tech-support providers, notoriously poor performers in our ratings. Well, finding a mate can be arduous and exhausting.
“I was on a date with a guy who turned out to be a convicted felon.
They knew what I looked like from the get-go, which made me feel at ease.
I was able to avoid those awkward moments (guys going MIA after I sent a full-body photo).
Could what I was doing really be considered lying if my (innocent) goal was to give a strong first impression? Many guys messaged me, and while we were flirting I’d always send over a head-to-toe photo of me in a cute outfit — so I wouldn’t shock them when we met in person. Some guys would stop texting me; the others made it obvious that they only wanted to hook up. It became exhausting to sense chemistry with someone and then have to wonder if everything would change once he saw my body.
I'd been chatting with one guy regularly, but after I sent the full-body photo, he went from calling me every night (to ask how my day was) to sending messages at 1 a.m. It almost made me want to stop dating online altogether.
So, I added five full-body photos to my dating profile, and the results were somewhat surprising: The overall number of guys messaging me decreased, and the number of men with a so-called "fat fetish" quadrupled, their messages growing more and more vulgar as they asked me if I'd put on more weight for them.
But as we explored the possibility of taking on this investigation, we discovered that 20 percent of our subscribers are either divorced or have never married, and might benefit from what we found.
Our survey included many people who at some point had used a dating website or an app, as well as a subset of 9,600 respondents who used them in the past two years.
Now, the messages I got — every day — seemed to be coming from sincere dudes who wanted to go out on actual dates.
Truthfully, I can't believe I waited so long to make this liberating move.
