Conceived in when f our friends from Harvard create d the first free online dating site , i t claims that over 91 m illion connections are made through it annually , 50K dates made every week and in it became the first major dating site to create a mobile a pp. Dating apps allow a comfortable, accessible and immediate connection with others using the app. By sharing personal preferences in any area, and using the app’s sophisticated algorithm, it collects users to like-minded people who can immediately start communicat ing via instant messaging. Of course, t hese detailed personal profiles are not just of interest to potential love matches. As our researchers have uncovered vulnerabilities in other popular social media platforms and apps, we decided to look into the OkCupid app and see if we could find anything that matched our interests. And we found several things that led us into a deeper relationship purely professional, of course. Perform actions on behalf of the victim. Check Point Research informed OkCupid developers about the vulnerabilities exposed in this research and a solution was responsibly deployed to ensure its users can safely continue using the OkCupid app.
A college kid’s fake, AI-generated blog fooled tens of thousands. This is how he made it.
I think this might be a relatively rare strategy error for Facebook. If I was facebook, I would very explicitly announce this as a spin out project, under a different name and brand. Even announcing this through the instagram brand would have made more sense to me. To me, that seems like a cultural thing unique to Silicon Valley that the rest of the world does not necessarily want. It seems like a mistake.
This reminds me of a recent NPR story-telling guest from a PhD student at UCLA who hacked one of the major dating apps (match or eharmony?) matching.
Outside of SF though, the situation is likely reversed – many more women than men are graduating college, and people tend to want to pair off with people of similar educational achievement. I see a dichotomy here. On one hand, we would like to have more women in the “educated” and therefore, high-income workforce. This, in turn, causes imbalance in the dating market and may force the women in the high-income bracket to make a concession by lowering their standards, etc. On the other, we can go back to the model where men dominate the high-income workforce and many women can “marry up” when they’re younger.
I would pick the former than the latter any day. Equality of opportunity trumps the equality of results in my world. Also, beyond a certain point, money just doesn’t make the other person more attractive. I would rather date a caring jobless younger woman than an abusive doctor with several degrees. I make enough to pursue my dreams and leisures.
Articles like this actually seem very insensitive for the men of my situation previously poor, now making comfortably but didn’t date much in 20s , as it purports that I, as a man in dating market, is worth as much as the amount of money I make. I hope that’s not case for most people.

How important is penis size, anyway?
I had an idea for a dating app a while back, in which the basic idea is that you pay the service to message someone above a free weekly limit of say 1 msg. The pricing would be reactive – as popular attractive people get more messages, the more it would cost to message them, growing exponentially in order to limit incoming messages to approx a few a day.
Unpopular people who got few messages would have a price that would go down to zero.
Hackers are spreading a new modified Android banking malware but also steals credentials for social networking, dating, cryptocurrency.
More recently, a plethora of market-minded dating books are coaching singles on how to seal a romantic deal, and dating apps, which have rapidly become the mode du jour for single people to meet each other, make sex and romance even more like shopping. The idea that a population of single people can be analyzed like a market might be useful to some extent to sociologists or economists, but the widespread adoption of it by single people themselves can result in a warped outlook on love.
M oira Weigel , the author of Labor of Love: The Invention of Dating , argues that dating as we know it—single people going out together to restaurants, bars, movies, and other commercial or semicommercial spaces—came about in the late 19th century. What dating does is it takes that process out of the home, out of supervised and mostly noncommercial spaces, to movie theaters and dance halls. The application of the supply-and-demand concept, Weigel said, may have come into the picture in the late 19th century, when American cities were exploding in population.
Read: The rise of dating-app fatigue. Actual romantic chemistry is volatile and hard to predict; it can crackle between two people with nothing in common and fail to materialize in what looks on paper like a perfect match. The fact that human-to-human matches are less predictable than consumer-to-good matches is just one problem with the market metaphor; another is that dating is not a one-time transaction.
This makes supply and demand a bit harder to parse. Given that marriage is much more commonly understood to mean a relationship involving one-to-one exclusivity and permanence, the idea of a marketplace or economy maps much more cleanly onto matrimony than dating. The marketplace metaphor also fails to account for what many daters know intuitively: that being on the market for a long time—or being off the market, and then back on, and then off again—can change how a person interacts with the marketplace.
W hen market logic is applied to the pursuit of a partner and fails , people can start to feel cheated.
Hacker, 22, seeks LTR with your data: vulnerabilities found on popular OkCupid dating app
In the process revealing how erroneously so many put stock in matching via a system with a very clearly vulnerable system compatibility rating algorithm and went out of his way to optimize the system further with less than desirable results: he was the most desired Male profile and was going out on several dates a day and rejecting women he’d have coffee dates with in more and more absurd ways as he got more and more requests.
Jack Dorsey’s recent interview on the AI podcast hinted at how perilous this could be, too. Probably this? Not to throw this into standard male internet complaining about dating, but it’s funny that the Wired article waits until almost the end to mention that the dude is over six feet tall with blue eyes and per the photo at the beginning, not bad-looking!

Bachelorette contestant Ciarran was not afraid to get nude for an art class on the reality TV show. If pop culture is anything to go by, penis size is really important. And if you believe what you watch, read or listen to, then bigger is always better. He created an app, called Dinky One , that caters to men with smaller than average penises.
Twenty per cent of those males are gay or bisexual,” David explained. But not in the way you might suspect. Be it in the locker room or the gym or the boardroom. You know, we need to outcompete our rivals,” Dr Anderson told Hack.

Side note – does anyone know why did OKCupid get “tinderfied”? This benefits guys as they are less likely to spend time composing a long message that is wasted. More generally, you want to encourage a dynamic where there is a progressive ladder of investment sizes by each party, so that no one makes a large unilateral investement. I have never used an online dating app, but I have to imagine that requiring mutual likes based on a public profile eliminates the strategy of guys who have a really good pitch tailored to a specific woman.
They have only one public blurb and a picture, so I could imagine it devolving to a filter that only selects for profile pictures in practice. I sort of agree, although I’m skeptical of how prevalent it ever really was for a guy to make an unsolicited pitch tailored to the woman that was accepted even though the woman would have declined based only on his profile. After all, women look at the profile when they receive and unsolicited messages, often before they even bother to read the message especially the long ones.
I can only speak from personal experience, but all my messages are tailored. For the rest, the message is good enough to get started. It’s clear that all messages need to be tailored to expect a reasonable reply rate; otherwise the woman has no way to tell you’ve put in any effort so it might be copypasta spam. That doesn’t mean that women are replying to unsolicited messages from men who they wouldn’t even swipe right on.

Obviously, anyone starting a new company in dating should try to understand investor biases in this sector. This essay also compliments a previous one on operating, from HowAboutWe co-founder Aaron Schildkrout, now at Uber, who also wrote about his experiences. So what do the churn rates look like for a dating product?
I love Hacker News. Taken with a grain of salt, it’s a great source of tech news. I also like that you can filter results by date to only get results from the last month.
This is another trouble with dating apps. How can you possibly make a meaningful connection with another person through an app? There’s nothing but a profile pic and some generic text. These “creepy” guys would likely be totally fine in an informal, real-world situation. They would be all right in the workplace, sports club, college study group or by coming along a group of friends, being introduced in person. They can hold conversations, but are subject to the imbalanced dating mechanics as discussed exhaustively in this thread.
This doesn’t excuse some of the weaker shit that some guys seem to try though. Fortunately there are niches in society where regular guys are in high demand by attractive women, and observing that is fascinating. Has there just been a war and all the decent guys died? Ah no, were are just here. Thankfully I’m currently off the market, but I’ve spent some time in the Tinder subreddit out of morbid curiosity.
The Tinder “mating dance” so far as it’s celebrated in that community seems to consist of some combination of the following: 1. Forced puns about the girl’s name.

DyslexicAtheist on Dec 19, I used to work for a German dating site called friendscout24 when it was still in it’s early stages. I didn’t really care too much about the product back then and was mostly trying to scale the backend which was my passion. Linux, Java lot of traffic and scaling issues everywhere in these pre-cloud days. The whole thing was built with affiliate marketing and also engineering was increasingly driven by the marketing team and their sometimes outrageous ideas.
The idea that a dating pool can be analyzed as a marketplace or an economy is both asserted recently in a thread posted in the tech-centric forum Hacker News. To him, the idea of a dating market is not new at all.

By the end, the college student had used the AI model to produce an entirely fake blog under a fake name. It was meant as a fun experiment. But then one of his posts reached the number-one spot on Hacker News. Few people noticed that his blog was completely AI-generated. While many have speculated about how GPT-3, the most powerful language-generating AI tool to date, could affect content production, this is one of the only known cases to illustrate the potential.
In February of last year, OpenAI made headlines with GPT-2, an earlier version of the algorithm, which it announced it would withhold for fear it would be abused. The decision immediately sparked a backlash, as researchers accused the lab of pulling a stunt. The lab took a different approach with GPT-3; it neither withheld it nor granted public access. Instead, it gave the algorithm to select researchers who applied for a private beta, with the goal of gathering their feedback and commercializing the technology by the end of the year.
Porr submitted an application. He filled out a form with a simple questionnaire about his intended use. After reaching out to several members of the Berkeley AI community, he quickly found a PhD student who already had access. Once the graduate student agreed to collaborate, Porr wrote a small script for him to run. It gave GPT-3 the headline and introduction for a blog post and had it spit out several completed versions.
