What's a good "match %" for online dating?
I’m window shopping on OkCupid, and decided to give being very specific about what I want a try instead of my usual open-ended going with the flow approach. I’ve been pleasantly surprised to find people who (algorithmically, at least) are very high matches expressed in percentage. That kind of match is not at all something I’m used to—for whatever reason, I’ve taken up with women who require a good bit of work and self-sacrifice to maintain. My fear now, though, is that finding someone so similar will become a little or a lot boring.
What do you think works best in this regard? If you expressed it as a percentage, what’s the sweet spot in terms of a match? 60%? 70%? 90%? Or how would you characterize it?
