A read an interesting, if somewhat old, blog post from OkCupid today.
In case you were wondering, OkCupid is an online dating site that’s a bit less formal than places like Match.com or eHarmony.
In any case… what they did was analyse bunches of opening messages to see what was the response.
I guess none of the results are really that surprising, but it’s an interesting problem set to throw a bunch of CPU at. It boils down to be smart, be interested in the person you’re messaging, and try to be interesting yourself. heh…
Ok, so maybe it’s not news. :-P
