International dating psychological profile
Five months into the friendship he told me he “Was looking for his dream women in cyberspace”.
I think he has been on these dating sites for over 5 years. Stumbling upon this article during research for my Master thesis and I am curious: Would you use an app, that introduces a new way of dating, solely based on your voice and who you are, rather than how you look like?
Needless to say I will not tolerate this and it was over. To me, we don’t fall in love with someone because of their looks (or their body mass index for that matter) or because of an algorithm, but because of the way somebody makes you feel and the way s.o. At the end of the day, it really doesn’t matter if someone has blue or brown eyes and my experience is, that most people place fake, manipulated or outdated pictures online to sell someone we don’t really are. I found my partner online and we had no picture of each other for three months – but we talked every night for hours…. We met on a different level and got aligned long before we met.
I am sad, frustrated and angry how this ended as underneath all of his insecurities, unresolved issues with his wife’s death he is a good guy. No-one seems very interested in making an actual purchase or commitment. So, the question is, would you give this way of meeting someone a chance…

Edward Royzman, a psychology professor at the University of Pennsylvania, asks me to list four qualities on a piece of paper: physical attractiveness, income, kindness, and fidelity.
They make worse matches than just using a random site.
That’s because their matching criteria are hardly scientific, as far as romance goes.
You might like someone online, but they put 100 on income, and unfortunately you’re about a 10.
Men and women make mating decisions very differently, he speculates.
