We used to have to get out of the lake at six o'clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of 'ot gravel, work twenty hour day at mill for tuppence a month, come home, and Dad would thrash us to sleep with a broken bottle, if we were lucky!

match.com commercial. "people who join match.com are three times as likely to find a relationship as those who don't."

i don't doubt that this is true, but how is it relevant? wouldn't it be because the majority of the people not on match.com are not looking for a relationship?

Their dating pool is 3 times bigger ?

 

Online dating hasn't done me any good (tbh not a lot of hot females sign up there), I have much better chances to find a date irl. It must be my personal charm.

 

But I wouldn't dismiss online dating, it is a channel to me new people so why not try it.

These statistics are mostly marketing. Its easy to use a sample and criteria that produce results that are consistent with one's marketing strategy.

I agree with wojt that online dating does have its place.

I've been seeing this stupid Gerber Life College Plan thing a lot recently. It's the worst sort of encouraged helplessness to sell a product. Bunch of parents sitting around, acting like saving for college is rocket science or something. "How do you ever know where to start??!?!!?" they ask. Investing is SCARY people, you need some prepackaged product to even have a chance.

I saw that too, is it the same Gerber that sells baby food?

yeah, that's a lot of marketing doublespeak and borderline misleading.  of course people who join match.com are more likely than "those who don't"...there's an operative bias.

Reminds me of a late 90s anti drug ad that said something along the lines of "50% of men aged 17-25 arrested for reckless driving that were tested for drugs tested positive for marijuana." facepalm.gif
