We thought of a few directions the research might go if anyone was interested in doing more with this subject.

The Pew data contained information on what people had gotten out of dating: were they in a long-term relationship, were they married? We could compare how online daters get into relationships versus traditional daters. We probably had enough information to create an example of the type of profile you are likely to see on OkCupid. They might not spell all their words correctly or tell you how much they make each year, but they would have heart. The Pew Data contained information on which state each respondent was from. To minimize regional bias, we could compare California data from OkCupid to California data from the Pew Center.
