But the couple is in the minority, since more than 80 percent of JDate users choose to leave their salary blank or select "Will tell you later." Van Wallach, 56, a senior proposal writer for a major professional services firm, was a member of JDate and before he started dating a woman he met on JDate in 2008.

While he ultimately decided to select the "Will tell you later" option, he initially listed his income as between $75,000 and $100,000.

A survey by the dating site found that women who indicate they make upward of $150,000 are most likely to be contacted by a man.

Likewise, men who say they earn more than $150,000 have the greatest chance of hearing from a woman.

(Stats on interactions between same-sex online daters are harder to come by.) For some, ruling out possible matches based on their income means being realistic, not superficial.

Alix Abbamonte is a 33-year-old freelance publicist in New York.

"I changed my 'About me' section to say I'm an attorney. But, on a practical level, I'm a freelance writer and editor, so my salary fluctuates and I'm never sure what I make each year until tax time rolls around.

More importantly, I'm a casual online dater — yes, it would be great to meet The One, but I'd also like to find someone to join me at happy hour.

It seems to me that conversations about money should be reserved for people who are either in or looking for a serious relationship.

Amanda Clayman, a New York–based financial therapist, has a similar perspective to mine: She doesn't believe that you should include your income in your dating profile.

"Everybody has their preferences and biases — whether it's blond hair or brown hair — and finances should be no different." Frankel is in the business of helping people find love online (and offline), a job inspired by her personal experience: She and her husband, 42, met on JDate in 2011.
