That gives time to think about whether that other grass might be greener. But both Toma and D'Angelo still say the benefits of online dating outweigh the drawbacks.
Those who selected from a large pool and had the ability to reverse their choice were the least satisfied with their selected partner after one week.
"There can be more regret when they know there are other options," D'Angelo says.
"Sifting through choices is potentially problematic in that it can create the perception that the grass is always greener." Toma and D'Angelo conducted an experiment with 152 undergraduate students to find out how the number of choices online daters are given, and whether these choices are reversible, affects romantic outcomes.
What they found was that a week after making their selection, online daters who chose from a large set of potential partners (i.e., 24) were less satisfied with their choice than those who selected from a small set (i.e., 6), and were more likely to change their selection.
