According to data from dating website OkCupidmore people have been proudly owning the title "entrepreneur" while looking for love online this past year, says Melissa Hobley, the company's global chief marketing officer.

And for some, it's a clear advantage. From July to Julyuse of the terms "entrepreneur" and "self-employed" on U. OkCupid profiles increased by 10 percent.

And users who identify themselves as entrepreneurs in their profiles have a better chance of getting a match's phoneaccording to the company. Hoffman attributes this uptick to the pandemic, which has spurred more people to start their own businesseseither by choice or by necessity.

Okcupid review

To determine whether entrepreneurs were more successful than non-entrepreneurs at making real connections on OkCupid, the company's data scientists looked at rates of "contact exchange"--when users swap phone s or addresses with matches, which typically means they're going on a date. Specifically, the company compared the contact exchange rates of profiles that mentioned "entrepreneur" or "self-employed" with the rates of profiles that didn't.

Sure enough, the entrepreneurs were getting more s. But there may be a catch: If you're a dating, being open online your entrepreneurial career might give you a better chance of moving to the next level with a match, but if you're a man, it might actually reduce your likelihood of making an initial connection.

Women who mention "entrepreneur" and "self-employed" on their profiles have a nearly 50 percent higher rate of conversations than women who don't, according to OkCupid, Okcupid men who use those terms have a 13 percent lower rate of conversations than men who don't. OkCupid defines a "conversation" as two responses per person.

It's hard to know why men who identify themselves as "entrepreneurs" or "self-employed" are at an apparent disadvantage. But according to Hoffman, when a man calls himself an entrepreneur, "women sometimes read that to mean not gainfully employed or not satisfied with [his] current Okcupid path," which als that he could be a dating on his partner's finances.

Indeed, OkCupid has heard from some straight women online they're less likely to trust men who call themselves entrepreneurs, according to Hobley.

That's partly because men have more of a reputation for stretching the truth on dating apps, she says, and partly because it's not clear what defines an entrepreneur. Self-identified straight men, on the other hand, seem to be less skeptical.
