Tired of all the drama, tired of not being good enough, tired of life. Back when I was a precocious, introverted youth who completely lacked charm, I tried online dating. Over the course of a couple years I, along with a team of friends, split tested multiple profiles, in multiple cities, on various sites, and gauged the opposite sex's responses to different messages, as well as what sequences of messages led to the best response.I totally struck out, which wasn't particularly surprising at the time.

Women, in particular, have overflowing inboxes, full of hundreds of messages just like these:"Hi." "Hey." "I liked your profile." "Where do you ... ""Wink." Accustomed as they are to this barrage of boring, uninspiring messages, women will not respond to anything that follows the usual patterns. For example, if a girl has a profile that consists of nothing more than: Then you'll want to respond with a short, fun, flirty message.” The survey responses, from 39 executives, produced the following conclusions:“Internet dating has made people more disposable.”“Internet dating may be partly responsible for a rise in the divorce rates.”“Low quality, unhappy and unsatisfying marriages are being destroyed as people drift to Internet dating sites.”“The market is hugely more efficient …People expect to—and this will be increasingly the case over time—access people anywhere, anytime, based on complex search requests …To all the sisters who reached out and held my hand in whatever way you could, who cried my tears with me, and laughter my laughter too, I thank every one of you.I survived.” ― Jayne Higgins, tags: bastard, bestie, betrayal, broken-hearted, catfish, date, depressed, drained, emotional-wreck, friends, funny, gone, handsome, happy-ending, healed, healing, heartbreak, hilarious, hold-hands, hysterical, i-am-woman, international-women-s-day, laughter, love, love-story, mrs, my-world-is-upside-down, online-dating, pain, rollercoaster-of-emotions, scam, sisterhood, sisters, strong-women, support-each-other, tears, unputdownable, women, women-everywhere, wreck “In 2011, Mark Brooks, a consultant to online-dating companies, published the results of an industry survey titled “How Has Internet Dating Changed Society?
