In the US, online dating is now the second most common way for heterosexual couples to meet (behind introductions through friends). After millions of years of human evolution, and thousands of years of the development of human society, humans had settled on the idea that in-person interactions through fun, face-to-face social activities were the best way to meet new people.

And then along came online dating to blow that idea away.

There is increasing evidence that, in face-to-face meetings, we are subconsciously picking up clues about the suitability of future partners based on a wide variety of non-verbal information.

Online dating lures us with the false promise of an “ideal” partner so much that we apply filters that ensure we never get to meet that person in the first place.

To make matters worse, most people suck at selling themselves, and do a terrible job of their profiles.

And, of course, the ones who good at selling themselves generally do so by misrepresenting themselves to some extent.

And it gets worse the more prescriptive you are about your requirements.

Some sites take this to an extreme degree and let you go nuts specifying the attributes you want: professional background, religion, salary, ethnicity, personal habits, even pet preferences!

If you’ve ever created an online dating profile for yourself, you know that it only scratches the surface of what you’re like.

No profile, no matter how well-written, could ever hope to capture the full extent of your personality.

Instead of meeting people in a fun social environment first, and using all the social tools we have to figure out if you like somebody’s company, technology arrived to help you make a decision about someone without ever even needing to meet them in person.
