What criteria would you look at when conducting a statistical analysis to determine which online dating site(s) someone should use, and why? If you would not consider online dating for yourself, ask a friend who has been or is participating in online dating for their input.
For example, do you think it is necessary to simply fill in the answers in the profile, such as height, body type, hair color, etc., and your preferences in these same categories for your match? Or do you think it is also necessary to answer the questions that can help find someone who may be more suited to your personality? These types of questions cover a variety of genres, such as relationships, sex, politics and law, and life and death.4
You can also find information online about statistics indicating which site yields the most success. Success may be determined by the site that yields the most number of dates, or the most marriages. In your response, share with your peers what success determinate you found or looked for.
What sample size do you think you would need to determine which site is most likely to yield the greatest success?
In your response, please provide a link to an article about dating sites or a link to dating site that explains what kind of data these sites provide.
