Another research found sex-related differences in communication patterns in a large dataset of mobile phone records and showed the existence of temporal homophily [46].Although the research on mate choice, both offline and online, has been extended to many fields, the following problems still exist: (i) online dating sites are a special kind of social networking sites, but the most previous researches focus only on the users’ demographic attributes, and have not considered users’ network centrality in dating sites, which can be potential important factors associated with users’ mate selection; (ii) most studies focus on male and female preferences in mate choice, but they do not properly examine the compatibility of the two parties’ preferences; (iii) with the advent of big data era, the methods of machine learning, such as ensemble learning, have been widely applied to diverse fields to achieve good prediction performance.Two hypotheses, potentials-attract and likes-attract, have been proposed to explain the preference and choice of long-term mates [8].

We find that for women, network measures of popularity and activity of the men they contact are significantly positively associated with their messaging behaviors, while for men only the network measures of popularity of the women they contact are significantly positively associated with their messaging behaviors.According to a recent survey, nearly 40 million single people (out of 54 million) in the U. have been trying online dating, and about 20% of committed relationships began online [4].Although some psychologists have questioned the reliability and effectiveness of online dating [5], recent empirical studies using the tracking data and survival analysis found that for heterosexual couples, meeting partners through online dating sites can speed up marriage [6].The research also suggests new avenues for data-driven research on stable matching and strategic behavior combined with game theory.As a special type of social networking sites [1,2,3], online dating sites have emerged as popular platforms for single people to seek potential romance.
