Attractiveness and online dating

Question: What's wrong with the experience of online dating?

There's a million people out there, you want to limit them to 3,000, that's what we're going to, that's what you're going to use.

And you could see lots of stuff, there were pictures and images and there were words and there movies and there were bands, there was all kinds of stuff, and you could go and when you came to another little avatar, you could start chatting.

And you would chat about something, it wasn’t about interviewing when you went to school and what’s your religion; it was about talking about something else and it turns out it gave people much more information about each other, and they were much more likely to want to meet each other for a first date and for a second date.

And because of that, I think actually people become much more superficial than we think they are. It turns out, women really care about men's height. At the same time, it turns out that men care a lot about women’s BMI’s.

I’m 5’9”, if I wanted to be as attractive as somebody who’s 5’10”, right, another inch? In fact, they want women to be slightly anorexic, at like 18-1/2.

In fact, when we do surveys to understand what people do, the basic trade off is for each six hours of searching for people and emailing them, you get one cup of coffee.
