And websites don’t give you BMI, but they give you height and weight and you can calculate BMI.

— Kristen Doerer, Making Sen$e Editor Kristen Doerer: Alright, so our first question is: What is the best strategy for filing out an online dating profile if you’re looking for true love? Dan Ariely: So I think the question is: What function is the online dating profile going to fulfill in this search?

People hope that you’ll talk to somebody online, they’ll fall in love with you, and when they meet you, they won’t care. Dan Ariely: In terms of relationships, we’re just starting to look at this, but here are my thoughts so far.

Relationships are complex and multidimensional: there is how much you care for the other person, how much they care for you, who takes care of their kids, who takes care of the house, all kinds of things. But from all of those dimensions, which is the easiest one to measure? So you could be in a relationship, and let’s just say for simplicity there are 10 dimensions of the relationship.
