Online dating ratio men to women newest dating site
That study, which my colleague Jeff Guo wrote about last week, found that because women are vastly more selective with their right-swipes, men have to engage a lot more women to get the same number of matches.
In fact, to get the same number of dating opportunities as a straight woman does, a straight guy would have to swipe right on almost 18 times as many profiles as she did.
There are roughly 3.4 million women in the San Francisco Bay area, and Sebastian Stadil has swiped right on 203,000 of them.
Mathematically speaking, that means Stadil — or, more accurately, a piece of software he built to swipe and message for him — has approached roughly 6 percent of San Francisco’s total female population. "I am still single." Stadil is not, to be clear, some kind of Tinder mega-player: On the contrary, he had just gotten out of a serious relationship when he joined the site, and he joined to find his next serious girlfriend.
But by allowing men to take this indiscriminate approach to its logical extremes, Tinder definitely may have heightened or exaggerated them.
Meanwhile, ladies have to become even more selective to get through their inboxes.
Stadil did fall pretty hard for one woman in particular: a fellow software engineer who worked at Google.
By “people,” of course, he actually means straight men.
