There are the people you never match with, the people you never end up talking to. The people who message you for a bit and don’t reply. The ones you try to make plans with that end up falling through.
Out of all the people you connect with, how many of those connections actually result in a face-to-face meetings?
Well, one man has actually mapped it all out.
On Monday, Reddit user keongmanja shared the following graph in the r/dataisbeautiful subreddit.
Originally from the UK, keongmanja is now based on Indonesia. He provided the following info in the comments to add some additional context to his chart.
Judging by the comments on that Reddit thread, the graph’s creator actually has quite a high number of matches compared to the experiences of others.
Out of all those matches, though, only around 8% resulted in a date.
That means the percentage of swipes that result in a date is going to be way lower, and the percentage of swipes that actually result in a relationship is likely to be miniscule.
Despite all that, though, there was still hope.
Mashable has reached out to the man behind the graph.
