Very long hair dating
I heard it from important men in my life—such as my father, my brother and his friends, my high school crush—and saw that view reflected in the media, specifically in the way that female celebrities’ long hair is prized.
It’s always a big deal when a woman cuts off her hair, whether it’s in a TV show or a movie or in real life.
By the end of the first hour, I had 19 matches and seven messages.
By the end of the week, I had 49 matches and 25 messages.
Since Ok Cupid is set up differently from Tinder in that it doesn’t require a mutual match, I just created my profile and then sat back and waited.
For my Ok C profile with the short hair, I received 33 likes and 9 messages within the first hour.
Here's a small sampling of the initial comments I received that were By the end of my little experiment, I had to conclude that not only was my hypothesis completely incorrect, I was also apparently carrying around an incorrect assumption about the way men view women with short hair.
So for the sake of a sociological investigation, I decided to do a little experiment to see exactly how much hair has an influence on the amount of interested potential dates. For the first week, I made a dating profile (one on Tinder and one on Ok Cupid) with pictures of my usual short hair and recorded the number of matches/likes and messages I received.I myself have had short hair for years and I love how it looks—not only on myself, but on other women as well.I’ve also only ever dated men who liked my short crop.That’s 51 percent fewer likes and about 60 percent fewer messages than I received with short hair.I believe the correct scientific term here is: Daayyyumn!
I laughed them off and continued to wear my hair short.
