What are the benefits to online dating? Can't we just meet people in school, at work, or in public? Naturally, we don't all have the finesse to do that. Perhaps we are shy, not into office drama, or just not social enough.
The benefit to online dating is that we can present ourselves in a wall of text without ever leaving our busy lives. How convenient! Also, we can filter out other users that don't meet our standards rather than asking uncomfortable questions in person. However, with online dating, there are downfalls to the benefits. What if people aren't honest and how do people get quality matches?
This analysis will try to answer and give suggestions to improve the online dating experience. The full paper and code can be found on my GitHub. (I highly recommend you take a look at this if you are interested in the science behind the data!)
