“Data, A Love Story: How I Gamed Online Dating to Meet My Match,” by Amy Webb

After going on numerous unsuccessful dates with men she met online, New York-based media entrepreneur Amy Webb decided to use a data-driven approach to finding a partner. First, she developed a comprehensive list of traits she was looking for in a man, assigning each trait a point value and resolving to go on dates only with men who scored above a certain threshold.

Finally, she changed her real profile to reflect what she’d learned. Her methods worked, and she eventually met her future husband on one of the sites.
