Odds of meeting someone online dating
Of course as long as there has been online dating, there has been a stigma attached to it.
Ten years ago, had anyone told you, “We met online”, you may have tried to stifle one or possibly all of the following: It was the equivalent of saying, “I’m desperate and the ticking of my biological clock keeps me up at night.” However today, with the bombardment of TV ads and word-of-mouth praise, digital daters are coming out of the closet. I didn’t believe it until I began researching for this article.
never meeting anyone, would help me allay my fears.
I was trained as a scientist for many years and had studied statistics. This is a rough calculation so using 50% instead of say 48% for someone my age, which may be more accurate, is fine. I am tall for a woman so half of all men are shorter than me.
You can ‘get to know’ someone from behind the safety of a screen.
Since 65% of women are plus sized and someone is in a relationship with most of them, you could use 65% instead. This was based on matching Myers Briggs types which I plan to talk about in another article. I have a high IQ supposedly, 1 in 1000, and my college genetics professor claimed that people mate within 10 IQ points of each other.
I took a random, informal survey of several graduate school students, encouraging them to share their thoughts on dating online.
