Survey results: Soulmates

By Avery Williamson

Sometime ago we wanted to have some fun on our online dating websites. We thought a survey would be the perfect thing since they're intended to be quick and fun, and they can also be extremely informative. Let's take an example and pull some basic data from the responses.

The first survey question we asked was: What do you think of Soulmates?

Thousands of members responded (thank you!) to this question. The results are below:

Treating Others With Respect - The Ultimate Dating Test

By David Wygant

Recently, I was patiently waiting in line to get out of a parking garage in Beverly Hills, California (a place that already has a reputation for snobbery), when all of a sudden the woman in the car in front of me started yelling and screaming.  

Alarmed, I rolled down my window to listen to the commotion. As it turns out, there was no emergency. The shrieking woman was yelling and screaming because she had gone over the maximum time for free parking, and owed $2.00 to the attendant.

A Woman's Perspective: Gentlemen, Spruce Up Your Profiles!

By Gini (site member)

I've noticed a distinct lack of descriptions on a lot of members' pages.  The second thing I look at after I look at a photo of the member is his "More about me" narrative.  If a man doesn't put anything in that space, I am much more likely to not look twice at him, no matter how nice looking he is.  And I found that many men leave that space blank.

At first I was very discouraged, but it got me to thinking: many men don't know how to describe themselves.  Maybe they don't know how.  Maybe they're too shy or modest.  Or maybe they just don't know what to say. 

So I have a suggestion for those verbally challenged men out there: put it in a random question list format.  They're easy, they're fun and, most importantly, they tell us a lot about the other person in a non-threatening, easy-to-understand way.
