What is not good, says Aiken, or at least very different from normal behavioral, is how quickly we disclose personal details online.

When it comes to dating, everyone, on some level, fears rejection.But saying yes so often with the flick of a finger comes with a risk: the much higher chance of being rejected.Edward Royzman, a psychology professor at the University of Pennsylvania, asks me to list four qualities on a piece of paper: physical attractiveness, income, kindness, and fidelity.“We thought that was pretty interesting, given the fact that gender usually plays a role in how women and men respond to these types of questionnaires.” Women, it turns out, usually feel the worst about themselves.But the most fascinating result of all was that men—not women—who used Tinder had the lowest levels of self-esteem.)Royzman said that among his students (not in a clinical condition), men tend to spend much more on physical attractiveness, and women spend more on social attractiveness traits like kindness and intelligence.
