That's fascinating, and also could be an explanation — men sending a lot more messages than women — for the disparity.
But also let's look at what other conclusions we can draw.
In online dating, it’s all about likes, swipes, and sending the first message. At least that’s what we can discern from most examples of romance in Western culture.
On Ok Cupid however, women and men exhibit similar behavior when it comes to liking, browsing and having conversations.
Using the data about each site’s visitors available through Quantcast, we’ve estimated the gender distribution for all the sites we review (except Zoosk, which restricts that information).
You can see these ratios on our online dating comparison page, or in the service details in the upper right of each review.
In the physical world, maybe that means a subtle wink.
