Basically, the quality of these online dating sites is determined by the amount of activity and engagement we have on them.
Demanding that any suitors be taller than 6'3" is a rather limiting request considering the average male height in the US tops out around 5'10"."It’s mind-boggling," says Gerard, 31, who is 5'10".At the outset, I can understand: women are typically shorter than men; and if a man falls way below that variance it’s fairly easy to deduce he may be seen as less attractive to the general population.Here's a common one: "I like to wear heels, so if you're under (insert desired height) swipe left." And it's not even just requests for guys who are slightly taller -- in some cases it's pushed to the statistical edges of male height.They have a decent algorithm as I found myself conversing with smart, funny and attractive women regularly. There wasn’t much competition — that is, not many other guys were using it when I was.
Eventually as more and more men (late majority) joined the site, I observed two problems.
Very rarely was anything of substance shared there and more or less, everyone had the same opportunity to meet and connect with others.
The interactions were unique because of the anonymity given by using My Space.
After the fall of My Space, I eventually created my Ok Cupid account.
I really got into the quizzes that members could take. Ok Cupid prides themselves on the ability to match people based on responses to their surveys.
As history has it, when people defected from My Space to Facebook, that online community became a dust town.
