Blondes dating sex
I filled my profile with a mix of photos of just me and photos with friends, and a fairly innocuous bio with a bit about me and my personal interests. I had 28 matches, meaning I’d matched with 14 per cent of people I’d swiped right on. It was ridiculous in comparison to the brunette profile and it took forever to get through 200 swipes because the It’s A Match! So, 10 per cent of those who matched with me ended up messaging me.However, only six of those then actually messaged me. After a fairly muted experience as a brunette, I deleted the profile and started again as a blonde. The difference was unbelievably obvious and it was immediate. That’s at least three times more than when I was brunette.To make this experiment as fair as possible, I set up the following ground rules: 1) I would spend three days using photos of me as each hair colour 2) I would start a completely new profile each time, so my prior use of Tinder before the experiment wouldn’t affect results 3) To get a fair sample, I would swipe right 200 times for each in the same location 4) I wouldn’t message my matches first as I wanted to measure matches vs actual people talking to me And once those were decided, I was ready to get swipe-happy. I had 101 matches, meaning just over half of the men I swiped on swiped on me too.It’s my current hair colour, so it made sense to start with being brunette. By the end of the three days, 20 of those men had sent me messages.So, in the end, three per cent of people I said yes to decided they wanted to talk me. I’d been blonde for most of my adult and teenage life, so I made sure to use fairly recent blonde photos of me, such as university photos, so age wouldn’t be too much of a factor. Not only that, but the Tinder we know and love came out of the woodwork.
It’s been a debate that has raged as long as dating and sex have been a thing. We’ve all heard the well-worn notion that men prefer blondes, that blondes have more fun etc.As if somehow your hair colour dictates how much you will enjoy life.I was very free, very single and very much ready to mingle with my new brunette hair.I’d tried dating apps during the very ‘off’ period of my aforementioned romantic entanglement.But, as a former natural blonde, I’ve never paid that much attention to all that.
I’ve changed my hair colour regularly since the age of 15.
