But in data published Monday, Ok Cupid, a popular online dating site, said women who take the initiative to reach out to men are rewarded with higher response rates and more desirable men.

The company studied a random sample of 70,000 users who had logged in at least three times within the same month.It found that women who sent the first message were 2.5 times more likely to receive a response than men who did the same.And the men the women contacted were more “attractive,” as determined by how other users rate the men’s profiles for both looks and content.But fake profiles abound, sexual predators use the sites, and some common online dating behavior—like meeting alone after scant acquaintance, sharing personal information, and using geolocation—puts users at risk.Dating companies are being pushed to better protect users, but some seem reluctant to do more— or even to talk about whether there’s a problem.
