    Two individuals and myself in a sociology class did a group semester project on internet dating. We each joined 3 sites for 3 months and then played the game. We each wrote our separate papers, but any hoot here are my stats.

    Description           Initiated      Outcome    %%%%       Odds       
    Profile View           2611        1756            67.3%        2/3       
    Initial Contact     2381                1693            71.1%        5/7       
    On Site Email    1059           163              15.4%          2/13       
    Email 2 - 5            163                29           17.8%        8/45       
    Email 5 - 10           163               14             8.6%        3/35       
    Email 10 +            163               4                   2.5%        1/41       
    Contact < 1 Mth    163               1                  0.6%          0/1        
    Contact > 1 Mth    163               5                   3.1%        3/98
    Local                     163              1                   0.6%       1/163       
    Met                          163              2                  1.2%           1/81       

    Note: An initial contact is when a wink, flirt, etc is clicked on a profile.

    The final result was 2 dates - 1 local & 1 @60 miles away. Both cases did not lead to further dating, yet one continued with a phone relationship temporarily.

    Knowing this information would you join an internet dating site?
