Long hair men dating
Sure, I recognized that remarks like “women shouldn’t have short hair” and “women with short hair are less attractive than women with long hair” are sexist.
I myself have had short hair for years and I love how it looks—not only on myself, but on other women as well.Other than the length of my hair, every other part of my dating profiles remained the same: the same brown hair color, the same neutral makeup in most of my pictures, the same brief bio, and the same preferences for age and location radius of men.My hypothesis, if you want to call it that, was that the profile with long hair would receive more attention. I created a profile with pictures of my short hair first.So for the sake of a sociological investigation, I decided to do a little experiment to see exactly how much hair has an influence on the amount of interested potential dates. For the first week, I made a dating profile (one on Tinder and one on Ok Cupid) with pictures of my usual short hair and recorded the number of matches/likes and messages I received.For the second week, I did the same thing but with a new profile that had pictures of me with long hair.But then by the end of the week, the long hair profile had only garnered 237 likes and 31 messages.
That’s 51 percent fewer likes and about 60 percent fewer messages than I received with short hair.
For all those dudes who have long hair and are proud of it, here are 14 real struggles only you’ll understand. Actually this happens way more than you’d want to admit.
Up until recently, I had been in a relationship for about seven years.
So the following week, I made a new Tinder profile that was identical to my old one but with pictures of me with long hair (a wig, since i haven’t had long hair since high school) instead of my usual pixie cut.
Once again, I swiped right on the first 100 profiles. By the end of the week, however, the long hair profile only had 38 matches and 15 messages.
I believe the correct scientific term here is: Daayyyumn!
