Henio tulistworek online dating

A team led by Elizabeth Bruch, a sociologist at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, tapped into this torrent of dating data.

But beyond someone's looks, how much do any of these factors matter for mate selection?

One complication is that online daters are not making just one decision, but several in a series: First, people are swiping their way through profiles and deciding which to dismiss immediately or browse more closely.

Then comes the choice to send a person a message, or to reply to one.

And of course, the final, crucial decision, which isn't captured by these data: whether to meet the person in the real world.

Bruch's team devised a statistical model that maps the "decision rules" people follow during the first two steps.
