Besides photographs, each user's profile could include any number of personal details including age, height, weight, education, marital status, number of children, and smoking and drinking habits.The data set includes some 1.1 million interactions between users.But beyond someone's looks, how much do any of these factors matter for mate selection?One complication is that online daters are not making just one decision, but several in a series: First, people are swiping their way through profiles and deciding which to dismiss immediately or browse more closely.Then comes the choice to send a person a message, or to reply to one.
