Look, it’s Friday, and when the results of a new survey into single people who use dating sites landed on B&T’s desk, we thought it would be the perfect afternoon time-waster.

The study, by dating comparison website DatingScout.com.au, compared 22 million profile pictures of online dating users from 13 countries, including 1.9 million from Australia.

With the data gained DatingScout was able to present detailed analyses of the online dating market and its preferences when it comes to visual presentation: The ages and genders of online daters as well as the answer to how it influence user’s profiles.

When it came to Australian dating website users, it found 64 per cent were male and 36 per cent were female. A whopping 84.42 per cent of people looking for a partner online are younger than 35 years old with men aged 25-34 the biggest users of dating sites in Australia.

Here’s some of the more absurd results the study gleaned when examining dating site user’s profiles.
