I believe the correct scientific term here is: Daayyyumn!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.
By the end of the first hour, I had 19 matches and seven messages.I’ve also had short hair—like pixie cut short, sometimes even buzzcut short—for the same amount of time.So when I recently found myself single and on Tinder for the first time, I couldn’t help but wonder (in my best Carrie Bradshaw voice): Do men on dating sites prefer short hair or long hair?Hopefully you'll see all the hair on your sweater/couch/TV and be like, "Aww. If she's on top, she'll spend 60 percent of your sex time trying to keep her hair out of your mouth. Eventually, we'll just cave and put it in a sloppy bun so we can get back to business, the business of sex. Up until recently, I had been in a relationship for about seven years.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.
For the second week, I did the same thing but with a new profile that had pictures of me with long hair.
Seuss never made a whimsical book about all the places you can keep hairbands is beyond me. Be prepared to deal with the shitstorm that is her realizing she does not have a hairband on her and she's not at home.
Her hair will soon cover everything you own like a protective yet creepy coating.
By the end of the week, I had 49 matches and 25 messages.
A 49 percent success rate with matches isn’t bad, but I was confident that the profile with long hair would beat it.
On one hand, I like the way I look with short hair; but on the other hand, the most popular woman on Ok Cupid has long hair.
