I Like You But Not After I Get to Know You

Krakovsky muses about a Harvard Business School study of online dating, which found that first impressions are generous and that second looks change considerably -- for the worse. During first impressions, daters usually responded positively because the information they received is ambiguous. Later, when they get to know their mates better, they tended to give lower grades. However, college-age research subjects bucked the trend, mostly saying they'd like someone more after getting to know them. Krakovsky gets to the crux of the research quickly in this bare-bones summary.
