find me a dating site - Online dating preferences

During the peak fertility years, women sought out men with an equal or higher level of education as them.They were also more likely to be upfront about it at all ages.

Online dating sites love to boast about the millions of members they have.

But as it turns out, they’re heaving shovelfuls of statistical manure at you.

In contrast, men became more selective than women past the age of 40 as their specificity was higher during their years of peak career-earning potential.

The new findings are an expansion of a study published by the research team last year which indicated that older women and younger men were more likely to contact potential partners who were less educated than themselves.

While we’re on the topic of fake profiles, let’s talk about the rise in scams.

A recent British study found that, in just the United Kingdom alone, online dating scams clobber 230,000 people a year, with a total damage of billion per year.

Researchers from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) examined more than 41,000 Australians during a four-month period in 2016 to identify gender-based preferences in online dating behavior.

"We found that women are more specific than men in their preference up until the age of 40, then males become pickier than females from 40 years old onwards," said lead researcher Dr. During their years of peak fertility (18 to 30 years), both men and women prioritized education level to a strong degree.

The study titled "Do men and women know what they want?

Sex differences in educational preference" was published in the journal Psychological Science on June 22.

The psychological reasoning is influenced by how education is seen as an indicator of quality across many cultures.
