- Years old:
A model who used dating different looks in two weeks on dating apps discovered brunettes - not blondes - have more fun. Hayley Leeanna, 36, had met men on a dating site for years with varying success and could never work out which look potential partners liked most. So she conducted an experiment, adopting seven different profiles; including the Gym Bunny, the Busty Brunette, and the Bubbly, Party-loving Blonde to see which worked best. And she discovered that you really do have more fun as a brunette rather than a blonde when the of approaches halved after she changed her brunette picture to one where her brunette had a golden colour. Hayley, a model from Peterborough, said: "I spent six months learning everything there is to know about how subtle changes to your profile picture and dating details can make a huge difference to the type of man you attract.
Particularly, as my friends have pointed out, after a difficult break-up.
Like a complete cliche. So, after the final end of a messy, long on-off relationship in October, I changed my hair colour once more — to brunette, for the first time. MORE : 8 reasons brunettes are better than blondes. I decided to spend three days as a brunette on Tinder, and three days as a brunette to see which version of me dating have more success.
I filled my profile with a mix of photos of just me and photos with friends, and a fairly innocuous bio with a bit about me and my personal interests.
Then I started swiping. Things started off a bit slow — initially I only had a handful of matches from the swipes. By the end of the three days this is what I ended up with:.
So began the brunettes, and I hate to say it but it was very tame affair — hardly any of the poorly thought-out sexual innuendos, come-ons or requests for dick pics that Tinder has become so famous for. After a fairly muted experience as a brunette, I deleted the profile and started again as a blonde. I used the same bio as my brunette profile.
I was literally getting a match every other swipe. It was reflected precisely in the of total matches I received over the three day period.
I had matches, meaning just over half of the men I swiped on swiped on me too. So, 10 per cent of those who matched with me ended up messaging me.
The datings of me blonde were admittedly more glamorous with more shots of me on nights out. Maybe the men who swiped brunette on me did so not so much because I was blonde, but more because I was giving an impression of myself having a good time?
On the upside, I looked far more likely to find someone to have a real conversation with when I was brunette — like the guy who was interested in my work. Visit Metro's Rush Hour Crush online every weekday at pm.
