I see, reading my comment again (ironically, not even noticing that it was my comment at first...) how you could get the impression that this "image" a man portrays is just that: attitudinal, and based on charisma, or charm or the ability to speak with people easily. However, this was not my point. The crux of my post was to define success and define one's self through pursuit of the things that lead to that definition of success. There is far more to that than just having charisma. Sure, there are guys out there who can buy a coffee and read a newspaper and make themselves sound worldly and accomplished - as there are people with multiple degrees working on cutting edge technology who fear their work is boring, and choose to be more introverted and humble.
Computer dating systems of the later 20th century, especially popular in the 1960s and 1970s, before the rise of sophisticated phone and computer systems, gave customers forms that they filled out with important tolerances and preferences, which were "matched by computer" to determine "compatibility" of the two customers. The history of dating systems is closely tied to the history of technologies that support them, although a statistics-based dating service that used data from forms filled out by customers opened in Newark, New Jersey in 1941. The first large-scale computer dating system, The Scientific Marriage Foundation, was established in 1957 by Dr. George W. Crane. In this system, forms that applicants filled out were processed by an IBM card sorting machine. The earliest commercially successfully computerized dating service in either the US or UK was Com-Pat, started by Joan Ball in 1964. Operation Match, started by Harvard University students a year later is often erroneously claimed to be the "first computerized dating service." In actuality, both Com-Pat and Operation Match were preceded by other computerized dating services in Europe—the founders of Operation Match and Joan Ball of Com-Pat both stated they had heard about these European computer dating services and that those served as the inspiration for their respective ideas to create computer dating businesses. The longest running and most successful early computer dating business, both in terms of numbers of users and in terms of profits, was Dateline, which was started in the UK in 1965 by John Patterson. Patterson's business model was not fully legal, however. He was charged with fraud on several occasions for selling lists of the women who signed up for his service to men who were looking for prostitutes. Dateline existed until Patterson's death from alcoholism in 1997, and during the early 1990s it was reported to be the most profitable computer dating company in the world. In the early 1980s in New York City, software developer Gary Robinson developed a now–defunct dating service called 212-Romance which used computer algorithms to match singles romantically, using a voice–mail based interface backed by community-based automated recommendations enhanced by collaborative filtering technologies. Compatibility algorithms and matching software are becoming increasingly sophisticated.
In this day and age, time is a precious commodity, and no one wants to spend hours on end contacting singles that don’t fit their personality or lifestyle. Indeed, one of the biggest pit-falls with online dating is wading through infinite, irrelevant match suggestions. That’s why EliteSingles’ matchmaking process was designed to offer you only the most fitting match suggestions; single women seeking men - compatible with your hobbies, interests and personality type, ready for a first date. We believe it's the most effective way for you to meet women who genuinely suit you.
Bumble looks eerily similar to Tinder, but functions a tad differently. The big catch with Bumble is that once two people of opposite genders match, the woman must message the guy first. She has 24 hours to do so before their connection disappears. Guys can extend matches for 24 hours, if they’re really hoping to hear from a woman, as can ladies, if they want to initiate something with a match but just haven’t had the time during the first day. For same-gender matches, either person can initiate the conversation first.
When asked about what a woman should say in an online dating message, the most popular way to break the ice is just saying hi. After that, try telling a man what you like about his profile or what you first noticed about him—that was the second most popular way to start chatting. And, believe it or not, talking about yourself was a popular option too. Most men listed telling them something about yourself as the third best way to get a conversation going.
People can meet other people on their own or the get-together can be arranged by someone else. Matchmaking is an art based entirely on hunches, since it is impossible to predict with certainty whether two people will like each other or not. "All you should ever try and do is make two people be in the same room at the same time," advised matchmaker Sarah Beeny in 2009, and the only rule is to make sure the people involved want to be set up. One matchmaker advised it was good to match "brains as well as beauty" and try to find people with similar religious and political viewpoints and thinks that like-minded people result in more matches, although acknowledging that opposites sometimes attract. It is easier to put several people together at the same time, so there are other candidates possible if one doesn't work out. And, after introducing people, don't meddle.
This is how i see it too, we are making ourselves ill chasing the wrong things such as superficiality and the result is making us become complicit submissive slaves to the system rather than chasing and focusing our minds on developing ideas not in line with a system but instead thinking about solutions to global problems such as food, fuel, pollution etc... this is where innovation needs to be and NOT about clothing, entertainment, packaging etc

You can only add photos of yourself from Facebook or Instagram, though, which is kind of limiting if you’re not very active on either. Also, while the friends-of-friends concept has a lot of benefits, it’s also restricting. It’s possible to run out of matches after 10 minutes of browsing, which is a letdown if you’re actually enjoying the app or are serious about finding a date.
Swedish men are stable. These guys don’t need to hurry you into the bedroom, they’re looking for a lifetime partner so they know there’s no reason to rush. Normally hesitant about making the first move towards a committed relationship, they hate it if a woman bombards them with a million messages of undying love. With your guy from this country, you’ll need to spend quite a lot of time before you get some positive result, but, if you don’t force the issue, you can end up with a very special partner, who’ll bring loyalty, stability, sincerity and equality into your relationship.

Yeah, this one crosses genders: “I want to be able to hug, kiss, and hold hands without wondering how much bleach I’ll have to use on my next laundry cycle,” jokes single photographer and model Michael Freeby. But the sentiment is no laughing matter. Nick Fresolone, a divorced dad in New Jersey, confirms that hygiene is crucial: “Good teeth are important,” he says, “as are clean fingernails. In fact, I consider those non-negotiable.”
If you are a boy, then expect that you will attract only girls. However, if you are a man (independent, knows your worth and value, has a strong moral compass, is considerate and an able communicator and doesn’t let insecurity dominate your psyche), then you should be dating a woman. And if you can’t spot the difference just yet, here are some pointers.
2. European men don’t ‘date’ – in the formal way that Americans are used to. The types of dates seen in movies – the formal ask, the fancy dinner and the entire dance that ensues simply doesn’t exist in the European mindset, in fact, the word “dating” isn’t even a part of their lexicon. Sure, they will go out for dinner and do fun activities, but it’s not packaged up in a formal and contrived manner.
