Abstract

Online dating systems are popular tools for pursuing romance, yet first dates between online daters are commonly unenjoyable because of incompatibility signaled through face-to-face conversation. This paper presents the prompted discussion interface, which aims to inform online daters’ expectations for face-to-face interactions by prompting them with messaging discussion topics that theoretically spur the expression of attraction-relevant traits. Preliminary findings are presented from a qualitative study (n=35) about user perceptions of the interface.
