Okcupid online dating persona test dating gelderland
The dating site Ok Cupid confessed to experimenting with user matches, misleading them to believe they were compatible with people they weren't.These users said they now know why some dates were "a complete nightmare." This might be the explanation for your last bad date.Frankly, I think e Harmony’s compatibility testing is probably smarter and more relationship-based than Ok Cupid.
Those blog posts no longer happen, and I think a lot of us miss them.
When people were told they are a good match, they were more likely to send each other messages through the site.
To test if its matching algorithm works and goes beyond the power of suggestion, Ok Cupid also told good matches that they were bad matches.
Good matches, even if told they weren't compatible, still connected but not as much as when they knew their actual compatibility.
In another experiment, Ok Cupid asked users to rate people's looks and personalities based on their profiles.
