Once again, it depends on the dating platform you use. Every dating website has its own community type. If, for example, your ideal partner is a man/woman who should have a University degree or higher studies, then you will see there are niche sites that cater these needs. You can go for a dating site dedicated to academic singles.
Casual dating websites for example are aimed at other type of users. People using these platforms basically are looking for a no strings attached relationship, one-night stands or even someone to fulfil their erotic fantasies.
