They had many things in common and talked for about 45 minutes.

Using the data collected about their age, education, nationality and previous relationships, they found the factors that many of those who broke up had in common.

It was called “The Nice Guys of OKCupid.” (It was taken down for legal reasons.) You can check out an archive here.

Would it occur to you that these women are confused about their problem, that they think they’re “too nice,” when in fact they’re too ugly, too uneducated, and too morally unsophisticated! Or alternatively, would you get angry at their nerve? What if the women I featured also felt sad about their lives and ascribed this sadness – crucially – to their belief that “men don’t like women as nice as I am.” Would you get the joke?Would you agree that these women are dangerous “man haters,” and that their “sexual entitlement,” evinced by their desire for love but their failure to admit they aren’t worthy of it, is so noxious to the community that it has to be routed out through public sexual shaming of this particular sort?But the study may not be welcomed by Michael Douglas, 65, and his 40-year-old wife Catherine Zeta-Jones – the research suggests a marriage is more likely to fail if only one partner has been previously divorced, and Douglas was married once before.The research, called Optimising The Marriage Market, appeared in the European Journal Of Operational Research, which usually analyses business decisions.Would you even know what the hell I’m talking about?
