Online dating kansas

I have a Tinder account, but I swipe to see what swipes I get back and that’s the end of it.

“You didn’t see the same increase for really attractive people,” Hall said. One group pre-rated 10 photos, not including their partner, and the other group did not pre-rate anyone at all.

LAWRENCE — The old saying that beauty is only skin deep is borne out by a new study from a team of University of Kansas researchers, the results of which should give Tinder users pause before they swipe left.

In the study, to be published in a forthcoming edition of the journal Communication Studies, Associate Professor of Communication Studies Jeffrey Hall and graduate student Benjamin Compton found that people’s perceptions of potential dates’ attractiveness goes up after they have a positive face-to-face interaction.

The results showed that if you rated your partner beforehand, it decreased your enjoyment of the interaction and your perceptions of your partner’s personality.

“It isn’t rating people that diminishes the quality of a first meeting,” Hall said.
