You’re saying to yourself: “What the hell is The Science of Dating? I’m only here because the tagline mentioned porn.”
Don’t worry, it’s far better, more insightful, and excessively entertaining…okay, that’s a lie, but at least it’s something you don’t have to be ashamed to look at!
Here’s your quick synopsis about The Science of Dating (yes, I promise a video soon):
What It Is:
Through The Science of Dating (beta), I will focus on providing you with interesting, scientifically-based information related to dating. For now, our “beta-mode” phase, we’ll be starting with simplistic, but extremely informative posts to get a feel for what the audience responds to. Although the word “post” sounds relatively boring, these tidbits of information will be so amazingly badass you’ll file divorce papers just for the privilege of dating one more time.
Why Create It:
Thousands of science papers hit print each year. Have you ever read a science paper? If you said yes and haven’t bought a bottle of liquor and a bullet, only to be on the waitlist for a gun, then I solute you. Only a handful of people truly enjoy a technical, formal science paper (I happen to be one of them).
I Need You:
If my professional and formal verbage hasn’t seduced you yet, then I will do a bit of groveling. I want what I create to take you, the reader, into account. That’s why I need you. During beta-mode, I want your feedback. I certainly don’t want it enough to pay for it, but for free, I am very interested.
Periodically I will be sending my beta-testers articles that no one else will see. From you, I’ll be asking for your feedback; namely: the usefulness of the article, what you like, what you don’t, and suggestions you may have to create an incredibly useful website. Realistically, this site will be OUR site. Am I altruistic or what?
What I’ll Ask:
I’ll be asking for feedback more than basic “what you want” questions, because, as you’ll see in a future psych post, humans aren’t very good at predicting what they will want in the future.
Beta-testers will only be asked to:
- Occasionally read an extremely informative article and provide feedback.
- Provide the occasional feedback on various aspects of the site.
I certainly will never share your email because I’m not an a-hole and I won’t ask you for money because I don’t have anything to sell you.
