How does online dating work

Okay, it’s time to have an open and frank discussion about the battle of the sexes and the dating game.

Experts say online dating sites see a huge traffic increase between Christmas and Valentine’s Day.

With the number of visitors these sites get each month, that increase is pretty significant: Some current estimates report between 10.5 and 23.8 million unique visitors per month for two major dating sites.

Even worse, you’ve been ghosted so many times your bros have started calling you Casper.

You’re totally over Tinder and whichever other dating app it was that you tried last week.

To help prove their point, they explain a "bet" BBC Two TV set up involving a single doctor and a mathematician, about who could more quickly find a handsome young man a date.

The single doctor bet he could find a girl on his own, and they bet that a mathematician would be able to find him a girl with a specially-designed algorithm. You'll have to watch the video, above, and find out!

You can’t watch as they smile, and that smile spreads up into their eyes and transforms their face into one of the most beautiful things you’ve ever seen – a thing that warms your heart and makes you realize you want to spend more time with the person. Unfortunately, the reality is nowhere near that fantasy.

To get some insight into what women go through on these dating websites, I pulled aside one of my family members who I knew had spent some time on these sites looking for her future spouse.

But how do you quantify chemistry on a dating site?

You can’t – face to face interaction is the only way to see if sparks fly between the two of you.

Isn’t it just better to hang out in the produce aisle and ask women how to tell if a cantaloupe is ripe?
