Online dating sites in korea
This showed the recipient that the sender’s interest was sincere.
The experiment worked, in that invitations sent with virtual roses were more likely to turn into a date. I’ve heard people in both the online dating industry and the online job board industries give two answers to this.
First, many online daters have unrealistic expectations.
They won’t pay for the right to send a virtual rose to a “good” potential date—they want to shoot for a date with a supermodel.
Verification kills the scalability of a dating site.
According to a New Yorker article (registration required) from last year, “Jiayuan hired a team of document experts to hunt for forgeries and ferret out suspicious activity, such as a user who makes frequent adjustments to his name and birth date.” Creating this capability is a much bigger problem for an American site than for a Chinese site (and, to a lesser extent, a Korean site) given differences in labor costs.
So Jiayuan developed a means for people to verify the claims they make on their profiles.Be realistic or, as she puts it, “If you’re holding out for a millionaire, stop daydreaming.” Second, at least if you are a woman, look for references and reviews of available men on Lulu, a site that is doing for single women what the e Bay “feedback” system is doing for online shoppers.Military Cupid is a leading military dating site, helping thousands of military singles and civilians find their perfect match in uniform.I’ve seen little evidence of American users demanding verification, on the other hand, though I have heard a few anecdotal accounts of Americans giving up on online dating because of dishonesty.The third explanation, which I think is probably most important, is driven by the economics of the online dating business.
