Okcupid your looks and online dating

I asked my dad about this experience, and here’s how he described it: he told his parents he was ready to get married, so his family arranged meetings with three neighboring families. That’s how my dad decided on the person with whom he was going to spend the rest of his life.

If this mentality pervades our decision­making in so many realms, is it also affecting how we choose a romantic partner?

Those are just a few modern dating dos and don'ts, according to new surveys from several dating sites conducted ahead of Valentine's Day.

CNNTech culled the stats from Hinge, Match and OKCupid.

So, to find out if men like fat women, I created two identical online dating profiles of me size 18 and size 10 to find out.

I should point out that I’m an 18 at this point and happy to use the word fat because I find ‘plus size’ patronising and I mentally think of it as phat instead. I set up these profiles on free online dating site OKCupid.
