Saw this today. For me, this is the answer to those who encourage single women to go online, as if it's a sure thing you'll meet someone (special). Fact is, it's not a sure thing in real life either, and I think luck is often underrated.
When all you have to work with is a set of pictures and a few sometimes poorly-written descriptions that are only the surface details about a person, the effectiveness of online dating then has more to do with taking chances on a person than just landing on the “right profile.” It’s a game of chance, mostly, though pretty often you should immediately know what a person’s deal is and if you have a strong gut response, it tends to be correct.
