Local dating pick up site
Though Pinterest won't divulge current numbers, it has been reported that the breakdown between women and men runs around 70/30, with 25 to 54-year-olds dominating the network, and people with kids comprising up to half the user base.
And certainly those I follow, who I gathered mostly for home and style inspiration and possibly a little dose of DIY ambition, skew almost entirely female.
And while it may not be as closely associated with the dating game as apps such as Tinder, eligible, career-minded singles are using Linked In not just to find jobs but love as well.
“If sharing career interests or finding a significant other who is successful professionally is important to you, it is an amazing resource,” says Roy Cohen, a career counselor, executive coach and author of “The Wall Street Professional’s Survival Guide.” “Think about Linked In as a starting point in terms of getting to know someone, first on a professional basis and then, if there is something more — a spark — allowing it to morph,” says Cohen.
When Andrew Marcus, the 27-year-old CEO and founder of My Tennis Lessons.com, was in need of a new tennis pro for his sports coaching startup in 2013, he immediately logged on to Linked In.
He was cruising members with the proper credentials when he happened upon Rosalia Lopez de Alda, a 26-year-old professional tennis player with the Women’s Tennis Association — the same group to which Serena and Venus Williams belong.

Now, we're not saying you shouldn't talk to a knockout; but men tend to send a lot of messages to female users and not get many responses in return, the researchers found.
And on Tinder, you’re expected to write her a clever message that makes you stand out from all the other guys. If it’s fun for her to think about and answer, her mind has already associated you with positive feelings – and that kind of emotional connection is essential if she’s going to say “yes” to a date.
In fact, it just may be easier to repel a potential partner virtually than it is in person.
Here, 9 blunders you don’t even realize you’re making—and how to turn it all around.
I once thought I discovered my actual soulmate through Pinterest.
Like hundreds of thousands of other women, I fell fast and hard for Pinterest.After the pair exchanged several messages on Linked In and Marcus did some due diligence — such as finding Alda’s photo online — he invited her to bat a few balls around on a local tennis court. The two, both based in Texas, hit it off, and have been dating ever since.
