ones board dating - Interesting female dating profiles
I noticed an interesting experiment on another blog the other day which utilized word clouds to examine online dating profiles.
For those that don't know, a word cloud is a graphical representation of the frequency amount of each word used in a given text.
Using this concept, I decided to conduct my own little experiment using the profiles on the Plenty of Fish dating site, specifically the "Interests" section of the profile.
I went on to Plentyof Fish and copy and pasted the Interests sections of 50 female profiles and converted them into word clouds using the Wordle web-site.
I repeated the same process again using 50 male profiles and converted those into their own word cloud.
As you can see there are both similarities as well as some big differences. First, lets take a look at the biggest/most used words in the female profiles, which are: Obviously, everyone likes music and movies, so it's no big surprise that those are two of the biggest interests for both profiles.
Also, no big surprise that 'sports' is the biggest word in the men's' online dating profile.
