A new study of romantic relationships finds that as online daters got to know another person over time, their initially sweet notions turned sour. The researchers suggest that inflated expectations can lead to major disappointments when daters meet in person. Once a flaw is spotted, the whole date is tainted. Fantasies vanishing with knowledge is a process that hits women harder than men, said Michael Norton of Harvard Business School and one of the study’s authors.
Women put more stock in the virtual dating world because they seek a soul mate , he said, whereas men are typically after a more casual relationship. It’s not that familiarity always breeds contempt, the researchers say. But on average, as you learn more about any lover , the less likely it is that you will click and get along with them, Norton explained. To find out, they showed each of online daters , average age 34, a grab-bag of anywhere from one to 10 traits randomly culled from more than characteristics gathered from real online daters.
Each online participant rated how much they liked their potential date, as well as which traits they would also use to describe themselves. Participants gave much lower ratings to potential dates and also perceived less similarity with them when they were shown greater, rather than fewer, numbers of traits. Two additional experiments backed up this finding.

I am a person with disability, or orang kurang upaya OKU as it is better known in this country, who is over 80 years old. I was very exhausted, disgruntled and annoyed at having to find my way to the Government Offices Complex in Jalan Duta to answer some unnecessary questions about my financial situation and then having to make my way across to the High Court Building to have a Commissioner of Oaths swear to a statement I had to make to satisfy the authorities.
All this was at some cost to me in taxi fares. Tired out, I sat down at one end of a row of seats while waiting for my companion who was helping me through the ropes. At the other end of the row sat a friendly-looking young man so I let off steam to him, asking why the authorities were so unfeeling and unhelpful as to make poor people go through so many difficulties for some simple procedures. He was in no position to answer my queries, of course, but he listened.
Having exhausted my complaints, I began a very short conversation with him during which I found out that he was young enough to be my grandson and that he was a lawyer waiting for a friend to go for lunch with him. At this point, he started gathering his things, and he opened his wallet. I watched, thinking he was looking for a name card to give to me.

Everyone knows the story of Rainbow Six Siege’s troubled launch, and how Ubisoft managed to bring it back from the brink of failure to become one of the most successful games around. But what most people don’t know is Siege’s esports scene followed a similar path, with disaster striking at the first ever LAN event that was supposed to kickstart the competitive side of the game.
However, this was the first real chance to show the world what Rainbow Six Siege could be as an esport. Any kind of LAN event with a decent prize pool brings in viewers and a good show would surely bring in a lot of new fans. But almost instantly a major bug brought the event to a screeching halt. At the time Sledge was one of the top operators, and not being able to use his key ability was a big issue.
So yeah, it wasn’t too much of a good start. After the bug was discovered the match was instantly paused, with Ubisoft trying to find some way to fix it, even getting in contact with the dev team back in Montreal.
Why Online Dating Can Feel Like Such an Existential Nightmare
It’s Pride Month, the time of year when corporations do their very best to prove just how supportive they are. Rainbows are everywhere: in clothing stores , on public storefronts , and on nearly every brand logo on Twitter. And while some of the profits from specialty Pride merchandise do go to worthy nonprofits, other brands donate a paltry amount, and some merch is simply used to generate additional profit.
It’s worth noting as well that many companies that plaster their brands with rainbows for Pride also donate large sums to politicians who actively oppose LGBTQ rights.

Twenty lectures became twenty chapters.
