My brother was the one who showed me this video and it was SO interesting. The video is pretty self explanatory so I won’t explain it in detail. However, I will say that it definitely sheds light on some of the challenges of online dating. I think that it’s very telling of the significance we place on attractiveness and appearances. I love the dry humor of the host of the video and the way that they approached the experiment. That being said, I wonder if results would be different if the experiment targeted one specific college campus.
Tinder is just creepy. I’m recently single and I’ve come to realize that Tinder is more about sex than anything else, especially because I’m in a college city. It might actually change depending on the city you’re in.
I loved this video! The host was funny and the experiment definitely caught me off guard. I didn’t realize that so many people would respond to a bot convo so willingly in the first instance.
Great post, Alisha!
