A lot of men’s “strategy” of swiping right on every woman renders matches meaningless… I’m not sure women are more selective, they’re just choosing from a group of people with much lower average hygiene/agreeableness (“niceness”) than are men. Men who don’t get many matches can simply adopt hygiene and grooming standards of the same calibre as women, then they’d have as many (true) matches as women.

An issue that everyone, regardless of sex, suffers on online dating is that most profiles belong to members who are no longer active. I know of zero successful couples that met on online dating personally.
