Amy Webb was having no luck with online dating. The dates she liked didn't write her back, and her own profile attracted crickets (and worse). So, as any fan of data would do: she started making a spreadsheet. Hear the story of how she went on to hack her online dating life -- with frustrating, funny and life-changing results.

Anthropologist Helen Fisher weighs in on how dating apps like Tinder and online dating sites change the way we love.Fisher's latest book is "Anatomy of Love: A Natural History of Mating, Marriage, and Why We Stray" (http://goo.gl/aRST8n). Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/helen-fisher-on-the-ancient-brain-and-online-dating Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript - People think that modern technology is somehow changing love. It’s not changing love. The basic brain system for romantic love evolved millions of years ago. It’s not going to change whether you meet somebody on Tinder, on Match.com or in the library or on the skating rink or in church. The brain doesn’t change. And the moment that you meet somebody in a coffeehouse, in a bar, on a park bench, wherever it is they ancient human brain clicks into action and we court the way we always have. We smile the way we always have. We flirt the way we always have. We listen the way we always have. We try to size up the person the way the brain has always been sizing people up. But modern technology is changing how we court. In fact, you know, I work with Match.com, the Internet dating site and I’m their chief scientific advisor. And they have an algorithm. There’s all kinds of algorithms out there. But these are not dating sites. These are introducing sites. Once you go out with the person and meet them wherever you’re going to meet them the ancient human brain clicks into action and you court the way we always have. But they are introducing sites and they’re algorithms are very useful. I mean, you know, most of us have this love map of what we’re looking for and you’ve got to pair up somebody. You have to offer dates of the right age, the right proximity whether they’re five miles away or 50 miles away. The right background, the right educational level, some of the right interests. So dating sites can go so far, only so far, with their algorithms to give you the broad basics of what you’re looking for. That we can provide for you so that you spend less time, you know, kissing frogs.

Chris McKinlay was just like thousands of other graduate students. He spent most of his nights chiseling away at his PhD thesis—an arcane treatise on large-scale data processing with supercomputers—living on a couple hundred dollars per month, sleeping in his cramped cubicle, and scrolling listlessly through online dating sites in search of love or, at least, a worthwhile diversion. That is, until he hacked OkCupid. McKinlay, frustrated by months of online dating with meager results, began to think about the complex algorithms that OkCupid uses to match compatible users. “The first thing I did was gather a lot of data from OkCupid and mine all that data for patterns,” he told NOVA. But McKinlay’s passing interest in collecting OkCupid data soon evolved into an obsession. “I started using all of my supercomputing time analyzing OkCupid match question data.” Within a matter of months, the unassuming 35-year-old math whiz was the top match for more than 30,000 women on OkCupid. He was receiving up to ten messages per day (most men receive zero) and occasionally scheduling two or three dates on top of each other just to keep up with the demand. Although the project involved pretty heavy statistical modeling, McKinlay says that his general strategy was simple: He first created realistic bots to mine information about OkCupid users in his area, and then used the results to optimize his own OkCupid profile so that he’d be automatically matched with the sort of people whom he wanted to date. But the hack worked even better than planned—catapulting McKinlay to the top of OkCupid’s algorithm. “I was, like, trending globally on OkCupid,” he says. Even after news of the hack broke in early 2014, not everyone was impressed with McKinlay’s stunt. Hacking OkCupid, “reflects a weird mathematician-pickup artist-hybrid view of women as mere data points,” Katie Heaney wrote for BuzzFeed News. “By viewing himself as a developer, and the women on OkCupid as subjects to be organized and ‘mined’, McKinlay places himself in a perceived greater place of power. Women are accessories he’s entitled to.” Regardless, McKinlay does seem to have ultimately profited from what was either a brilliant hack or a relic of the patriarchy. On his 88th OkCupid date, McKinlay met Christine Tien Wang who confessed to him that she, too, had manipulated parts of her online profile. “I spilled my guts,” McKinlay recalls. “I was like, ‘Oh I changed my profile too, in fact I wrote a whole bunch of natural language processing software to optimize it, and then I hacked all the match scores and I’ve been going on a date per day and I’m not sure what I’m looking for anymore but I think you might be cool. Is that, like, weird?'” Perhaps it was—but not too weird for Wang. One year later, the two OkCupid hackers were engaged, and they’re still together to this day.

“There is an algorithm for love, but it’s one you write yourself.” Amy Webb had gone on enough unsuccessful dates to know that Boy + Girl did not always equal true love. In this witty talk, she describes her highly scientific action plan for gaming the online dating game. After conducting some serious data collection and analysis that entailed taking her computer with her on dates, she drew up a prioritized set of criteria or data points and developed a scoring system. This enabled her to ignore the algorithms built into dating sites and instead use mathematics to match herself up with prospects. But even this was not enough. Watch and find out what other highly unusual tactics she used to collect additional information and achieve a stunning result.

This is the VOA Special English Technology Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Ten or 15 years ago, online dating was too new to be socially acceptable. Now, many people search for a partner online. Online dating is different from traditional dating where two people learn about each other in person. With online dating, people learn a lot about a possible partner before even meeting them. We spoke with Mario, who had recently moved to the city of Baltimore, Maryland. His friends paid for him to use an online dating site. He thought he knew just what he was looking for: Someone who was not American, not a scientist or Latin. He found someone the complete opposite. "Opposites attract" is a popular saying. But online dating companies do not think so. They say the more alike two people are, the more likely they are to have a relationship that lasts. One of the largest online dating sites is eHarmony. It asks people to first answer more than four hundred questions. A secret mathematical algorithm then uses the answers to match people. An algorithm is a step-by-step process for solving a problem. Gian Gonzaga is the director of research and development at eHarmony. He told us two people do not have to be similar in everything. It is only those things that are most important to them. Makon Fardis is a clinical psychologist who works with couples. He does not believe in using mathematical algorithms to match people. He notes that only seven percent of people tell the truth when describing themselves. He says even if we do not decide to lie or mislead, the way we see ourselves is different from who we really are. He says there are many examples of couples that seem like they would be compatible, but are not, when they meet.Remember Mario? A woman named Tamara was his online match. She had some worries about online dating. But she kept an open mind. She told us: "You just meet a lot of people" you would not meet normally. And "if you didn't have a connection," you move on.At first, Mario worried that Tamara was too similar to him. But he suggested they meet for coffee. He told us, she ordered a drink, then another drink. Then she said, let's order something to eat.Tamara added: "It was very natural." We talked and it was five hours later that we had dinner." That was a year ago. Last month, they got married. For VOA Special English, I'm Laurel Bowman. (Adapted from a radio program broadcast 20Aug2012)

And as we rely more on big data, online dating algorithms could know more about your personality and preferences than you do. Creepy, huh? We have a question for you. How much data would you be willing to share if it meant you get a date of out it?

Get ready for a new kind of data dump. People have more choice about who to date and marry than ever before. Things like the Internet and transportation give us unprecedented access to potential mates. So now the question is how do you choose? Online dating sites have been trying to take the guess work out of dating for years. Basically they're trying to match up two people based upon shared interests. They might ask you a series of questions to get your likes and dislikes, or give you a survey and then base your compatibility with someone else on that. But this does not take into account little things like, let's say your favorite book of all time is War and Peace, but really you only skimmed it back in college. Some sites have taken upon themselves to start looking at what they call "revealed preferences." What's going on is they're looking at every single profile you click or breeze on by and feed that information into a special algorithm. Now over time this algorithm gets to know more about you than maybe you do. For example, you might not be aware that you have a thing for english teachers, or perhaps you're subtly turned off by people who like sushi. But the algorithm knows. It's like you've been dating it all this time. Creepy, huh? Well, just like some people's relationship status on Facebook - it's complicated. And it's only going to get more so. It's the year 2050 and you're a swinging bachelor or bachelorette out on the town. Your online dating profile now uses an algorithm that analyzes all of your online activity. What you buy, which social media posts you like, who you follow on Twitter, where you get your news. It has analyzed pictures of you using facial recognition and even uses your genetic information to suggest matches with dissimilar immune systems. All you do is whip out your super smart phone, send a message to a match in your vicinity, and meet up. From there, things are pretty much the same as they've always been. Sparks fly or they don't. Maybe it means that we end up changing ourselves more and more for our potential partners. We've already got plastic surgery, but what could be next? Maybe genetic modification. Maybe you hear she likes brown eyes instead of blue. Are you willing to take drastic measures? Or perhaps the whole dating world just moves into the virtual sphere. Next thing you know you've got an avatar representing you that changes over time as your partner's preferences change. Maybe you think love stinks, I'm not into data dating. Well, at least you'll have time to finally finish reading War and Peace. I got a question for everyone out there. How much data would you be willing to share, if it meant that you could get a date out of it in the process?

How I won at Tinder http://www.metro.co.uk/2013/07/18/how-i-won-at-tinder-3888770/ "Tinder is a new game for people with smartphones and faces. Well, it's not technically a game; it's sort of a dating app, but it behaves like a game, asks you if you want to 'keep playing' and generally appears to have pitched itself somewhere between Angry Birds and Grindr." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

IOWA CITY, Iowa (CBS2/FOX28) -- One of the hardest parts of dating is the uncertainty: will the person you like, like you back? Finally, University of Iowa researcher Kang Zhao figured out an algorithm that matches users up with dates based on the likelihood that your crush will like you back. "This algorithm can potentially find you a good date," Zhao said. "But whether it's a perfect match, whether you find your soul mate, you'll probably have to take it offline." Zhao already has that figured out-- he's been married to his wife, Tracy, for seven years. But, to do his research, he had to sign up for dating websites, too, something he had to clear at home, first. "I just have to tell her, 'OK, I'm going to study this. I still love you. I still love our family,'" he said. Zhao's algorithm is public domain, and he has already been contacted by some smaller dating websites to use it as a part of their platforms.

Dating advice from Singles Group UK, http://www.singlesgroups.co.uk The Online Dating Revolution (part 2) The downside to internet dating, however, is that the meeting is not characterised by the ever sentimental and spontaneous interaction, but one coupled with fear and suspicion. Honesty, true feelings and faith are contemplated on with caution and scepticism. One does not always have much to base a factual judgement on. In addition, a 100% online dating success is hampered by the many socially challenged and the nerdy cases of our society, who have used it as a hub for expressing themselves, usually in a phony manner. Another loophole has been where mathematical algorithms adopted by some dating sites with the promise for people to find an absolute match, yet fail miserably. Nonetheless, many continue to report online dating success and have gone on to launch similar dating sites to help those still looking for love. There is no sure way of finding love. One's approach should always be to immerse their ambition therein, with the belief that they too will find love on the other side. This is a blessing. No matter how busy our lifestyles, with just a few clicks of a computer mouse, one could be staring at the photo of their future partner, unknowingly.

Millennials are not scared to put themselves out there, and the rest of society is quickly following suit.

What can both dating companies and the people using them from the various successes and failures of the industry?

On dating app Bumble, the ladies are required to make the first move. Once those women make a match, the app gives them 24 hours to reach out and start a conversation. The company launched at the end of 2014, gaining more than three million users. Now, Bumble is heading into the "friend zone" with Bumble BFF. The app uses its algorithm to help people find friendship. Founder and CEO Whitney Wolfe, who was a co-founder of Tinder, joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss the new venture.
