[Question] Are long-form dating profiles productive?

There’s been a noticeable trend over the last few years of in this community of writing long-form dating profiles. They have the benefit of being slightly costly signals, requiring significantly more time and attention and a much greater degree of disclosure than can be devoted to a traditional online dating profile. But they are (at present) publicized and distributed manually, sharply limiting the possible audience.

Has anyone who’s written one found a date (and subsequently, relationship) by doing so?

Separately, if you’ve written one, regardless of whether you met anyone because of it, do you believe it was worth the effort?
