The analysis included 4,000 pages, 2,000 sampled from all the online dating sites internet sites utilizing random quota sampling without replacement. Within each internet site, we gathered 1,000 pages from heterosexual men and 1,000 pages from heterosexual females. Users look for pages via geographical location, age, and gender filters.
To make sure a geographical dispersion of pages, we selected equal amounts of pages from five major towns including metropolitan, residential district, and rural areas: l . a ., Denver, Chicago, Atlanta, and new york.

We utilized these stratifications to make sure a complete a long time of dating pages in sampling. As the older grownups team could integrate as much as three decades, we addressed age as a variable that is continuous than being a grouping adjustable in analyses.
From each profile, we removed: sex, age, ethnicity, while the вЂњAbout MeвЂќ or вЂњIn my words that are own free reaction area. To make sure privacy of profile authors, we would not get extra information that is demographice.g., training, spiritual choices, earnings) which could act as distinguishing information.
