He has learned that, on a purely economical terms, one will have a better chance of meeting their true soul mate by searching through online dating profiles than going on several dates.
To accomplish that the author presented two groups of participants a variety of questionnaires where they had to indicate their preferences for a partner.
The first group of single students demonstrated a prevailing desire for a kind, considerate, and honest partner with a keen sense of humor.
We have gathered a list of top notch online dating articles as well as studies published by well-known universities and scientists on this page.
Some of the articles and studies are based on USA data/users and some on data from around the globe.
The researchers of this study described a recommender system they implemented and performed a quantitative comparison of two collaborative filtering (CF) and two global algorithms.
Results showed that collaborative filtering recommenders significantly outperform global algorithms used by dating sites.
This is the first in-depth study of information retrieval approaches applied to match-making systems such as a dating service.
The authors of this paper propose a machine learned ranking function that makes use of features extracted from the uniquely rich user profiles that consist of both structured and unstructured attributes.

Study 2: they came to the conclusion that users desire information about experiential attributes (sense of humor or rapport), but online dating sites contain primarily searchable attributes, such as income, religion, background...
Researchers at the Cornell and Michigan universities present this study about lying in online dating profiles.
