Long nails dating site
I swiped right on every single one of the first 100 profiles and then waited to see how many turned into a match.By the end of the first hour, I had 19 matches and seven messages.You know the drill by now: I created an identical profile with pictures of long hair for the second week.By the end of the first hour, I had 36 likes and 5 messages—pretty close to the short hair profile’s results.
I heard it from important men in my life—such as my father, my brother and his friends, my high school crush—and saw that view reflected in the media, specifically in the way that female celebrities’ long hair is prized.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.Going from long hair to short always opens up invitations to critique the woman’s appearance (especially when said woman is in the spotlight), and there’s seemingly always one person who’s quick to chime in with an unsolicited, “She looked better with long hair.” I would know, since I certainly have received plenty of those sorts of comments myself.The sad thing is that I allowed those individuals to shape my view of the world as a whole. The worst part is that I filtered my own appearance through their perspective and saw it as reality, without even realizing it.
