Perhaps more importantly, this whole discussion led us at xo HQ to find out about lumbersexuals, which one xo editor explains as basically just "dudes (often hipster dudes) who are into the rugged aesthetic yet still use moisturizer." Also, "neat and tidy bears who might be (probably are) straight." We also uncovered the fact that at least two xo Jane editors had previously believed sapiosexuals to be people who preferred to have sex with human beings and one thought it meant people who wanted to have sex with brains.

, because there’s no way to have a clean break or move on.
Just when you’re giving up, you’ll get a noncommital but flirty text.
According to a self-described sapiosexual writing for As foreplay, I prefer, I don't know, having my clitoris touched, but I'm willing to buy that there are some people in this world (like maybe three) who get all hot and heavy discussing Kant instead of cunt. As one xo editor put it, "All the people I've heard calling themselves 'sapiosexual' also date conventionally attractive people, so I smell a rat when they say that intelligence trumps all."And finally, what the hell is "intelligence" anyway? In which case, I guess I hope they find one another? Or are you a card-carrying sapiosexual and prepared to defend your case?
There are a million different ways to be smart — are we talking IQ? And then just kind of hang out together in their houses where I am less likely to encounter them?
The researchers compared the judges' personality assessment to the results from each individual's personality test.
It turns out the judges were good at predicting whether or not someone was truly extraverted based on their profile, but they were off on everything else. "Like most individuals seeking romantic relationships, online daters may be motivated to present their ideal, as opposed to actual, self," they write in the paper.
Remember when the world finally came up with the term ‘ghosting’, and we finally had a way to describe all the dates that had disappeared from our lives? Well, good news: there’s a new way to describe all the massive d*ckheads in your life.
What a wonderful time to be alive, we said, sobbing into a plate of nachos after another failed relationship.

Everybody who's ever had a Tinder or OKCupid account (which should be every single person, because the miraculous future is now and in this glorious future we order men from the Internet like twee sweaters with dogs on them from Modcloth) is probably familiar with a handful of online dating cliches — dudes posing with drugged-up tigers, men and women who are looking for a "partner in crime," everybody being so deeply into their bikes that you wonder why they don't just stay home and make love to their fixed-gears or whatever. And while we're at it, how come everyone on the Internet is into eating pizza and doughnuts and Netflix and being lazy, but everyone on every dating site is apparently into going to museums and Cross Fit? Urban Dictionary, despite defining almost every other word with something filthily sexual, defines a OKCupid recently rolled out a bevy of new options for users to self-define as things like agender, androgynous, genderfluid, gender nonconforming, and trans, all of which are great, valid options to help people identify themselves.
For the study, the researchers recruited volunteers, half of whom were genuinely interested in finding a romantic partner and half of whom were neutral judges, to assess the personalities of 100 people based only on the dating ads they posted on Craigslist in Vancouver.
