Webb dating

The majority of dates I’d been going on weren’t horrible, they just weren’t great. I knew that if I spent enough time searching through each site and going out with a large enough group of men, I could increase the probability of my finding the right one.

And besides, even if I canceled, I knew how Internet marketing worked. Your black pants and black or gray top or whatever you’re wearing isn’t good for a first date.

Where a site would ask her to describe herself, for example, she wrote things like "award-winning journalist" and "future thinker." These answers weren't matching her up with the types of people she wanted to meet because they didn't accurately describe her personality.

The guys she liked didn’t write her back, and her own profile attracted less-than-desirable prospects.

So naturally, she turned it into a data experiment and geeked out on spreadsheets.

On one date, the guy ordered the most expensive menu items at a restaurant then left her with the bill, Webb describes in her book, "Data: A Love Story." Webb also talks about her experiences in a TED talk.

One of the problems Webb found with online dating was that she and her matches weren't filling out their profiles honestly.

I was intrigued enough to click through and read the rest of his profile. Mench Tastic would likely order a drink once he got here, and since I actually liked him I didn’t want to get accidentally drunk at the very beginning of the date.
