These findings added support to several key hypotheses they had about aging; namely, that older adults prioritize social connections, good health and positive emotional experiences.
The method includes enabling a first user to make an offer to pay or to be paid a compensation for having a date with a second user.
The findings are discussed in terms of the tensions experienced by online daters to (a) enhance their physical attractiveness and (b) present a photograph that would not be judged deceptive in subsequent face-to-face meetings.
The paper extends the theoretical concept of selective self-presentation to online photographs, and discusses issues of self-deception and social desirability bias.
For example, a recent study by aging researchers Eden Davis and Karen Fingerman at The University of Texas at Austin looked at 4,000 profiles of individuals aged 18 to 95 years old from two large online dating services.
Using an analysis of the word choices in these profiles, Davis and Fingerman discovered that younger daters tended to use more first-person singular pronouns (“I,” “me,” and “my”) and descriptions of work, achievements and negative emotions compared to the older daters, who used more first-person plural pronouns (“we,” “us,” and “our”) and emphasized relationships with others as well as positive emotions.
