For those of like what you wish you the best opportunities for students who are interested in making the dating.
A few years ago I downloaded speed dating data from experiments conducted by Raymond Fisman, et al.
In case you’re unfamiliar with the speed dating process, here’s how it works. The assumption is that you can learn a lot about a person in a short period of time.
In these speed dating sessions, the women stayed seated, and the men shifted each round.
They also rated their own attractiveness before the event and after getting their match results.
Fisman found that participants' measure of their own attractiveness went up or down depending on their speed dating success rate.
So, what do men and women really look for in a date? And his ideas aren't based on his own experience, though he is happily involved in a long-term relationship. 10, for a rapt crowd at MIT, Fisman described the results of his "speed dating" experiments, which seem to confirm many of the stereotypes about what men and women want in their partners. Fisman said his findings would not surprise the grandmother of his partner, Ellie.
For instance, Fisman's study, which involved about 400 Columbia University students, found that men are less likely to date women they believe are smarter or more ambitious than they are. Grandma Burnstein once told her granddaughter, "Never let a man think you're smarter than him.
They also place higher value on physical attractiveness than women do. Men don't like that." "Grandma Burnstein knew something about dating that carries forth to the present day," Fisman joked.
On the other hand, women's interest in dating someone grows higher with a man's intelligence, even if they believe it exceeds their own. After meeting Grandma Burnstein, Fisman made it a point to tell her how much smarter Ellie is, and "how happy that makes me." Speed dating, along with Internet matchmaking, has become a common way for single people to meet prospective dates, Fisman said.
The pairs chatted for four minutes and then the men shifted again.
