There’s always the allure of finding something better or just different.

When you know someone in common, there’s a bit of reputation on the line so you behave differently.

I want to find the One, the special relationship that will last many years and multiply happiness. But I’m bad at small talk, and I jump too fast to intellectual conversations, making it awkward. I wanted to find the perfect match, so I wasn’t going to be an amateur about it.

To give you ballpark numbers, 43% responded after the first message, 21% after the second, 14% after the third, 9%, 3%,1%, 1%. The number would then be recorded in my custom CRM and automated texts would be sent with Twilio.

Most of the first dates led to nothing: we didn’t have much in common. As a founder, I stubbornly believe that everything is within my power to fix, and that something could have been done differently to force the decision in my favor. That was my best first date on more than 150, ironically the only one that hadn’t been part of my rigid routine. On our 5th date, she said she wasn’t ready for a relationship. Having more matches increased my odds of finding someone interesting, but it also became an addiction.

Dating at scale doesn’t go well with well fitting areas of interests. On the rare occasions when I was genuinely interested in a date, she wouldn’t be. With her there was no doubt: I needed a second date. Outside, she climbed on my shoulders and I ran uphill while she laughed. The possibility of meeting that many people made me want to meet every one of them, to make sure I wouldn’t miss the One.

It's not "two girls for every boy," like the Beach Boys sang, but demographics trend that way. The good news: As the decades pass, women increasingly outnumber men, which subtly works in your favor. That's one reason why Betty and Veronica no longer sit by the phone waiting for Archie to call. And while you're at it, make sure your Facebook page won't raise eyebrows.

Use the classic dating strategies: introductions through friends, blind dates, meeting through activities (work, recreation, religious, etc.), and plain old serendipity. Through them, you'll probably meet women who also enjoy them, women who might become friends — and eventually, maybe more. So the odds are in men's favor — and women know it. Try to correct misinformation, or at least be prepared to prove that you're not the escaped serial killer who shares your name.
