For example, Yagan says things people often list as dealbreakers, like users who smoke or are of different political parties, tend not to be.

I was curious as to what your real opinion is of online dating.
My guy friends (also educated, attractive) complain that they get no responses and female acquaintences tell me that they get so many emails, etc, that they don’t know where to start-and often do nothing.
They don’t have time to “date around” several times a week.(actually neither would I). Women, being more vulnerable than men, are more hesitant to date online, so you get a situation where there’s a lot more men than women.
Romantic relationships play a huge part in our physical, social and emotional well-being.
Aside from my own luck and the trendy radio ads and sexy commercials, it seems as if no one’s happy.
Dear Geoff, Glad to hear you found someone special, and even happier that you spoke up.
And yet, just this week, a new analysis from Michigan State University found that online dating leads to fewer committed relationships than offline dating does — that it doesn’t work, in other words.
That, in the words of its own author, contradicts a pile of studies that have come before it.
— that online dating “works.” This much should be obvious: We don’t actually know.
